Genesis and Creation (4) - God Created All

My approach is not a sell out. Genesis One contains some important truths that cannot be ignored. The first is that God created everything. This universe and human life cannot be understood apart from God.

This is a serious warning to modern scientists.

By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God's command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible (Heb 11:3).
Modern science works on the assumption that this world can be understood by observing the physical dimension of life. This is not true. Any study of this world that ignores God and ignores the spiritual dimension will produce a distorted view of reality. We cannot fully understand the nature of human life or animal life, unless we understand that they were created by God. We will never fully understand their behaviour, if we ignore the spiritual dimension to reality.

Ron,
This is really good stuff. I had missed the proper application of the Hebrews passage.

And, the concept that trying to understand creation by examining the created is a futile venture.

Well done.
