God Spoke Words To Create Everything
Adventure 5: God's Creation
How did God create the world?
God spoke the world into being! Psalm 33:6, 9 – By the word of the LORD the heavens were made, and all the host of them by the breath of His mouth. For He spoke, and it was done; He commanded, and it stood fast.
This Truth Makes
Albert Einstein said, “I want to know how God created this world.... I want to know His thoughts; the rest are details.”
How did God create the world? God simply spoke words and it was. Creation is an act of God’s will, and His alone. God created things exactly as He wished. Nothing influenced or forced God to create. God was not lonely or in need of company. God was not lacking glory. God was perfect in His goodness and greatness before He created the world. God did not have to ask permission before He created. (Who would He have asked, anyway?)
Evolutionists decide in advance that God could not possibly have created the world. In making up their minds ahead of time this way, they blind themselves to any evidence that might show that God did create the world. The Bible says that they are “willingly ignorant.”
Before the lie of evolution, Satan was already spreading other lies about the origin of the world. He knew people would wonder where everything came from, so he was prepared to tell them anything that would keep them from believing the truth (2 Corinthians 4:4).
Even the early church fathers had to combat wrong thinking about the world’s origin. Read what Theophilus (who lived more than 1,800 years ago) wrote: “Some of the Stoics absolutely deny the existence of God.... Others say that everything happens spontaneously, that the universe is uncreated...and that nature is eternal...that God is only the individual’s conscience. Plato and his followers...say that matter is as old as God.”
Theophilus goes on to say that these false teachings about the beginning of the world come “by human thought, not in accordance with the truth.”
A Christian supposes (assumes, believes) some things ahead of time, too. We assume that the Bible is God’s Word and is 100% true, and we decide that all our ideas and opinions about everything ought to “line up” with what it clearly teaches. The teachings of the Bible are the foundation for all our thinking.
