God created man in image and saw man as his greatest creation. He gave man the rule creation and told him to care for all the plants and animals and to praise, love, and obey God (Diffey, 2015). God told man to be fruitful and multiply to fill the earth (Genesis 1:28). Christians use the Holy Bible to guide them through life and in the word of God.

He tells us in the Bible For go so loved the world that he sent his only begotten son to die, and whosoever believes in him shall not perish but have everlasting life (John 3:16).
