Psalm 19 says, “The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.” Properly understanding Creation is part of properly understanding God. Without God’s revelation of creation, we would not know what God did in our origins. That is precisely God’s intention in revealing the opening chapters of Genesis. The people of Israel needed to know their origins and how they came to where they were. The same is true of the Christ’s church today—we need to know our origins and how we came to where we are. While the study of creationism is an important topic, it is so broad and so much written about that one sermon cannot possibly capture everything. Indeed the Christian who desires to learn more about creationism can find the information he needs—some suggested resources are below. For this Sunday, then, our attention will be drawn to creationism as it relates to the gospel of Christ. It has been said that ideas have consequences. Our understanding of biblical creationism has implications on the gospel itself. Join us on Sunday to marvel at God’s wisdom!
