365 Things I Believe: Creation

 

In the beginning, God created…

Look around. Look at the complexity of this earth. A recent trip to the National Museum of Natural History would lead one to think that believing in creation is nonsense.

But look at it this way. There’s a quote that’s been going around Facebook and Pinterest that says this regarding those who don’t believe in creation.

The belief that there was nothing and nothing happened to nothing and then nothing magically exploded for no reason, creating everything and then a bunch of everything magically rearranged itself for no reason what so ever into self-replicating bits which then turned into dinosaurs.

To me, believe in creation and the Creator makes sense. Read Genesis. Follow the progression of how God created things. It logically follows the pattern of evolution. Whether it happened in a span of 6 24-hour periods, with 7th for rest, or whether it happened over the course of millions and millions of years, to believe that it just “happened” is what doesn’t make sense.

God made two great lights–the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars.
~ Genesis 1:16

I believe this.

365 Things I Believe is a revisioning of a year long web project. I initially launched the blog 365 Things I Believe because I think there are important things I have to say. There are eternal truths that are non-debatable, although I realize they’re not universally accepted.

So for a year I did a daily post of one thing I believe to be an indisputable truth. I’m relaunching here at The Write Side of My Brain and will continue through the next year to re-post (mostly) from the original project.

This time graphics and commentary are included. You can buy today’s print here. And, by the end of a year, if not sooner, you’ll be able to purchase the entire series in ebook format.
