“Something is eternal. Something has always been and always will be. Nothing comes from nothing, and since we are looking around at a great deal of something, all around us, in every direction, then something must have always been.

The question before us therefore concerns whether that everlasting something is personal or impersonal.”

Doug Wilson, Mere Fundamentalism: The Apostles’ Creed and the Romance of Orthodoxy (Moscow, ID: Canon Press, 2018), loc 208, Kindle Edition.

A related question would be, “What worldview accounts for, provides justification for, and/or makes sense of reality as we perceive it?” As Ray Comfort once said in an interview with a college student, “The evidence of creation is all around us.”

If your response to that declaration is “Nuh uh!” Then you have not really considered the world in which you live. Maple trees reproduce Maple trees. Cats create cats. Dogs create dogs. Fish create fish. Humans…drum roll…create other humans. Of course, I’m speaking about biological life here. What about non-biological things. Buildings, books, iPhones, music, art, etc., etc., etc., are brought about by something. A bird builds a nest, a fox a den, a beaver a dam, ants a colony…all creations of something.

And so, we see creation IS all around us. We have the evidence before our eyes. We see it, we touch it, we smell it, we taste it, we hear it. How…did…things…come…to…be?

Accident or purpose? Personal or impersonal. The Christian worldview provides meaningful answers to these questions.  “In the beginning God created…” (Gen 1.1). What about yours?
