I’d say the main point of this passage (and of the entire chapter) is faith, just to give you a heads up. I think you’ll see what I mean when you read the passage:
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. For by it the people of old received their commendation. By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible.
Christian: Who did the “common ancestor” evolve from then?
Evolutionist: Well, duh, “it” didn’t evolve. Everyone knows this!
Christian: So where did it come from?
Evolutionist: It was created when absolutely nothing exploded.
How reliable do you think that sounds?
That’s why I love it when evolutionists want facts. Because, if you went and asked an evolutionist to give you 10 absolute, proven, facts of evolution. I almost promise you that they won’t be able to do it, this varies on how much a person believes in evolution. But, when ever I ask that question, they either leave the conversation, or dodge the question.
You are loved!
