VITAL ISSUES IN THIS CHAPTER
- We must put down all existence to God
- The universe had a "beginning" - but what was before it?
- Why did God create?
Illustration: "God needed us". No.
- Creation was orderly - explain.
- Fiat and fulfilment: "God said" - Texts to support this.
- Creation was progressive - explain.
- Man is unique - how?
OBSERVE: Science cannot tell us about origins except by deductions - which can only be tentative at best.
APPLICATION: Did Christ believe this?
THE CREATION IS MOST WISELY MADE
- "Create" v. "make" - explain.
- Genesis 1:2 - meaning.
- The light for "day"/"night".
- The "seed" and "kinds".
- Why was man made last?
- The "image of God" - what is it?
- The absence of all evil at first.
OBSERVE: God made the universe to show his glory to us that we might love and worship him.
APPLICATION: O why are men so blind to God? Learn to look for God's glory (Psalm 8).
GOD MADE HEAVEN ALSO
- The creation of angels - the orders of the angels.
- The Fall of Satan.
- Heaven - the home of believers - created at first here.
- If Adam had not sinned - how should we get to heaven?
- A preparatory state and the final state.
OBSERVE: The sin of man overruled by God for good: Christ.
APPLICATION: "Thy Maker is thy husband".
Two great rules of science.
Illustration: a teacher of science.
