All Things Were Created Good
Case 5: God's Creation
Was there anything evil or bad about God's original Creation?
No. Creation now is all stained by sin, but God's original Creation was all very good. Genesis 1:31a – Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good.
This Truth Makes
When God uses the word “good,” it means “attractive, pure, useful, desirable, and right.” Up until the sixth day, God referred to His Creation as “good.” But after Day 6, when He stepped back and pondered what He had made, He said it was all “very good.” It is interesting that He described it as “very good” only after He created man, who is made in His image. The closer God’s Creation got to God’s own image, the better it became in God’s opinion. Since God is perfect, nothing could possibly be more good than God. God is the ultimate Good, and therefore His glory is His Creation’s ultimate goal.
