‘New from Nothing’: Is God Still Creating Today?

Posted on

new_from_nothing_wideGod has accomplished certain works of creation for every Christian who is alive today. What are they? Part of answering that question involves answering this question: Is God still creating? Although it may surprise many Christians, the answer is “yes.”

Notwithstanding the First and Second Laws of Thermodynamics, God is still creating— as a biblical word study of “create” will demonstrate.1

But didn’t God rest from His creation work on Day Seven?2 The correct answer would be “yes,” but only regarding three of God’s creation works, two of which directly impact our lives as human beings. Which works are these that, in combination, define each one of us who is a Christian?

    Unfortunately God is still creating liberal idiots, who in the long run are hell bent on their own destruction as well as mine.
