Creation Proves

Competing Worldviews

Thus, creation proves God’s eternal existence, for He is older than the universe and everything came from Him (John 1:1-3; Col. 1:16-17; Isa. 40:28; Psalm 90:2; Rev. 10:6). Creation proves that God is the living source of all living things and all life, for He made all forms of life at the beginning. All life came from Him (Genesis 1:11, 12, 20, 21, 24-27; 2:7, 21-23; Job 33:4; Isa. 42:5; Acts 14:15; 17:24-29; 1 Tim. 6:13; Rev. 10:6). So how can life exist from a non-living source? The sun, the oceans, mountains, rivers, or any created thing cannot be God. Neither can metal, wood or a stone statue, for they are not living things. So creation proves that God must be alive, for He gives us life and He is the living God. Creation proves God’s infinite power, for no other human or physical power can create a universe such as ours (Psalm 89:11-13; 65:6; Jeremiah 10:12; 27:5; 32:17; Job 9:8-10; 26:7-14; Romans 1:20). No other god can be the true God unless He is infinitely powerful! Creation proves God’s infinite wisdom, for no human is so wise that he even understands completely all of our Creation, much less can he create a universe such as ours (Psalm 136:5-9; Jer. 51:15; Prov. 3:19-26; Eccl. 11:5; Isa. 40:28; Rom. 11:33-36). Creation proves God’s right to rule over His universe, for He made the universe and it belongs to Him (Psalm 24:12; 89:11-12; 95:5; 74:16; 100:3; Isa. 29:16; Col. 1:15-17; Heb. 2:10; 1 Peter 4:19; Rom. 1:25; 11:36). Creation proves God’s right to be worshiped, for He made us and deserves our worship (Deut. 32:15-18; Psalm 86:8-10; 139:13-14; 8:3-9). God deserves to be worshiped for His greatness in all that He made (Neh. 9:6; Psalm 33:6-9; 95:1-7; 148:1-6; Rom. 1:25; 11:36; Rev. 4:11; 14:6-7). Thus the Bible explicitly confirms itself to be the true revelation of God. Man must believe that the Bible is true about the doctrine of creation.
