Creation is from the great I AM. His existence is before the beginning. I AM is omnipresent, omnipotent, and omniscient forever.
Look around. Think logically. The environment, the galaxies … all too perfect in function and formation to be created by the mishap of an explosion.

I don’t question how I can smile and talk into a small electronic device, then somehow my image and voice travel through air and appear on your screen.

I have no objection viewing scientific ideas of Creation, explained by hypothesis … Continue reading →
