C. Personal Application: How much time do you spend reading the Bible? How much of your life is patterned by what it teaches?
D. Case Study: One of your relatives states, “If all Scripture is inspired and useful for teaching and correction, why do so many people disallow or try to refute certain parts of the Bible?” How would you respond to your relative?

B. If man had dominion over all the creatures of the earth, why do we see so many wild and dangerous creatures to man now?
C. Personal Application: What does knowing you are made in God’s image after His likeness do to your self-image and self-worth? How does it affect how you interact with others?.
