History according to Christians started when God created heaven and earth and then man. From Genesis 1:1-
- God is in charge of history;
- And He orders it.
From Him, we can study what happened in the past, how Jesus was crucified and so on.
The Bible tells us how disorder came about and its punishments which later grew to conflicts and wars. Compare such happenings with the world wars that took place. Such uncivilized acts of war brought disorder, clearly indicating that God was simply telling us what will happen if we disobey.
Also, we read He made man: the highest creation with body, soul and spirit. From a Christian perspective, we know that without God mankind would have never existed. We would not have the opportunity to study:
- How they lived
Genesis 19:26 narrates about Lot’s wife disobeying and looked back at Sodom when the wrath of God burned the city and everything in it. “Lot’s wife” pillar stands near the Dead Sea at Mount Sodom today as evidence to a historical event in the Bible.
