For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. For it is written: “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.” Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? For since, in the wisdom of God, the world through wisdom did not know God, it pleased God through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe. For Jews request a sign, and Greeks seek after wisdom; but we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews a stumbling block and to the Greeks foolishness, but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ lthe power of God and the wisdom of God. Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men. 1 Cor. 1:18-20
Christ the Power and Wisdom of God
Our position is to defend God’s ownership rights of the heavens and the Earth along with every man, woman and child on this planet. Our Creator Jesus Christ was here among us for 33 years. History clearly records His remarkable life, death, resurrection. Only suppression and rejection of the historical record is open to atheists, agnostics and skeptics. Our position is humble, not elaborate and complex, straightforward. Jesus is Lord!
- .In the beginning God created the heavens and the Earth. Genesis 1:1
- In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him was not anything made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. John 1:1-4
- By faith we understand that the universe was created by the Word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible. Hebrews 11:3
- .And He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. Colossians 1:17
Creation was a succession of monumental, supernatural creative miracles by God, out of nothing visable, other than Himself. Science cannot contribute anything to our understanding of creation since there were no observers, and by definition science can say nothing about the supernatural.
Creation cannot be verified by any naturalistic methodologies since creation did not come about by any naturalistic processes and cannot be reproduced or duplicated in any way. God has given us His record of creation in the Scriptures. Jesus, Himself quoted from the Genesis account of creation. We either believe what the Bible clearly says about creation or we don't. Science can confirm or deny that simple basic fact. (John MacArthur paraphrase)
Creatio ex Deo, ex nihilo. Creation was by God—from God's essential being alone. Meaning, from nothing external to God, out of nothing else other than Himself (which is something from someone, not nothing from no one).
God created the heavens and the Earth and all that is in them in 6 days approximately 6000 years ago.
Christ now holds all creation together by His mighty power, not dark matter, not dark energy, not the Higgs boson (God particle.) Christ, and Christ alone is our Creator, Sustainer, and for all who have faith in Him, our Savior.
Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on His law he meditates day and night. Psalm 1:1-2
God has a good and moral reason for everything He does or permits, including the yet undisclosed reason for the temporary existence of evil. Read more...
