What Does Scripture Say About Creation?
I know some folks who believe that “everything came from nothing.” REALLY? If you question them a bit further, they’ll admit there was dirt and energy, and from that dirt and energy came stars, planets, earth, and all living creatures – including humans. There’s no need to ask them where the dirt and energy came from. It wasn’t created either. Somehow it just existed.
This reminds me of Darwin’s theory of evolution and “the simple cell.” We now know that a protein molecule contains billions of bytes of information. It’s also “irreducibly complex.” That is, if all of it wasn’t already there, none of could exist. I’ve grown tired of such illogical arguments and have come to the conclusion that they don’t need evidence or logic to believe what they believe. They must believe lies because the truth is too frightening.
One of my hobbies is quantum physics and I’m a member of a “think-tank” discussion group of some very smart physicists. I’m not sure why I’m allowed in the group, but I like their ability to think outside the politically-correct box. In other words, they aren’t imprisoned by atheism. That allows them to believe what they see. Most of my group are Christians, and they know Scripture. So, what does Scripture say about Creation?
“Worthy are you, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they existed and were created.”
In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.
Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”
And God said, “Let the earth bring forth living creatures according to their kinds—livestock and creeping things and beasts of the earth according to their kinds.” And it was so. And God made the beasts of the earth according to their kinds and the livestock according to their kinds, and everything that creeps on the ground according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not anything made that was made.
Then the Lord God formed the man of dust from the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living creature.
By the word of the Lord the heavens were made, and by the breath of his mouth all their host.
(In the words of modern physics) Jesus Christ is before time, space, energy and matter. He created time, space, energy, and matter, and by Him is the substance of the universe is held together.
Scripture suits my logical better than “Nothing times nobody equals EVERYTHING.” Even if I’ll concede on the premise there was already dirt.
