DID GOD CREATE THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH?
By Stan L. Caldwell

THE GENESIS ACCOUNT SAYS GOD CREATED THE HEAVENS AND EARTH. Have you read the Genesis account of creation of late? I could understand the perplexity of mankind concerning creation, if there were no trustworthy account of the creation. But when we read in Genesis 1 and 2 of all that God did in the first seven days, how can there be any question concerning it. “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth”, Gen. 1:1.

THE ORDER OF IT ALL DEMANDS A DESIGNER. Psalm 19:1 says, “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.” If you can believe all things came into existence simply by chance you have some faith! Do you believe your computer came into existence by mere chance or did someone or some group of men design it? Take the simplest things in life. Your shirt, did it come by chance? Your shoestrings, did they come by chance or did they have a designer? Now when you look at the sun, moon and stars and see their glory, function and steadfastness, did they just come by chance? What of all the various plants and animals, did they just come about by chance? What of man with all his functions of seeing, touching, hearing, smelling and tasting, did he just by chance appear? Besides man look at all the animals with their ability to reproduce after their kind. It is amazing that we can see the simple things but the greater we cannot believe was designed. I had rather believe a shoestring came by chance than that a human being came by chance. It takes more faith to believe such a doctrine than it does to believe that God created all things.

THE BIBLE IS THE TRIED AND TRUE BOOK. Newspapers may be filled with all kinds of false information. Jesus asked in John 8:46, “Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me?” None could convict Him of sin and neither can any today, then why do we not believe him? The Bible, who has proven it to be false? It has stood the test of the skeptics through the years. Scientists have tried to prove it false. In fact men of all areas of consideration have sought to prove it false. But none have accomplished this. In face archeological finds have only confirmed the truths that are found therein as have all other true areas of investigation. We often listen to modern liberal thinkers of our day as though they have all the answers because they have a degree behind their name and we dismiss the tried and true Word of God. We have it backward. The Bible has God behind it. His fulfilled prophecies, His miracles recorded therein, His high moral standard and His unity of through throughout the Bible all prove the reliability of the word. Never did the Book predict anything that did not come to pass in its proper time. This book has been tried and proven to be true. Let us accept what it says concerning creation. There is not another book like it.

THIS IS A FUNDAMENTAL FACT. Since God created the heavens and the earth, then we should worship, serve and obey Him. It is to Him we shall answer in the last great day. It is to Him we look for all good things, spiritual and physical. He is above all and we should glorify Him all our days. Let us ever thank God for His creative work. He is our God!
