God Created Everything Out of Nothing
Adventure 5: God's Creation
What is "Creationism"?
Creationism is the Bible's teaching that, for His own pleasure and glory, God created everything out of nothing in only six days. Genesis 1:1 – In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
This Truth Makes
If we cannot trust Genesis 1:1, then how can we trust John 3:16? Do you see why it is so important to accept what the Bible says about Creation? If we doubted the Creation story, we also could not be sure about the Gospel story that shows us how to get eternal life.
But we can be sure of all God’s Word. And God tells us that He created everything from nothing.
God did not use any previously existing materials in order to create. When God created, He used “nothing.” God is the only One Who can turn nothing into something. Theologians use the term “ex nihilo” to describe how God created – it is Latin for “out of nothing.” God created the world ex nihilo.
God has the power to will things to be, and they immediately come to pass exactly as He has willed. Can you begin to imagine that kind of awesome power? Wow! The Creator of all things must be an amazing God.
