Yes.

"Our task today is to tell people — who no longer know what sin is...no longer see themselves as sinners, and no longer have room for these categories — that Christ died for sins of which they do not think they’re guilty." - David Wells

Yes.

Why is it that my voice always seems to be loudest when I am saying the dumbest things?

I think there's a way to make the poll appear in the OP...  working on it.

Edit: OK, it's in the first comment. Should work.

What message is CT sending in making Adam look like he came from Planet of the Apes?

They are implying that Adam was a hippy.

All jokes aside, it is rather disturbing to see that image on a Christian magazine. Are they trying to appease those who believe in evolution?

If anything, Adam would have looked like some angelic being- a beautiful and perfect specimen of manhood.

Actually, it looks a bit like me only with dark hair, more of it, not so much gray, no glasses...and more muscles... and--OK, doesn't look like me at all.

More seriously, it's a bit hard to know for sure what ideal of beauty to appeal to when imagining what Adam would look like. But should he look simian? That's one ideal that should have been easy to eliminate.
