Nature and The Bible

Defining Both Books
by Dean Ohlman

The apostle Paul wrote, “Since the creation of the world [the Creator's] invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead” (Rom. 1:20).

The Hebrew author of Psalm 19 expressed a similar observation when he wrote, “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork. Day unto day utters speech, and night unto night reveals knowledge. There is no speech nor language where their voice is not heard. Their line has gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world” (vv.1-4).

General revelation, then, which is readable to anyone willing to consider it carefully, makes known God’s glory (splendor and riches), His handiwork (creativity), His everlasting power (including His moral perfection and His capacity to control and alter natural forces), and His divine nature (realities that show He is worthy of our worship).

Together these disclosures demonstrate that the natural world contains a vast collection of good gifts that reveal to us a great deal of truth about the personhood, intelligence, and character of our Creator.

The creation not only shouts “God,” it declares, “He is powerful, wise, and wonderful!” Read the entire article.
