Did the Triune God Create All Things? (Epistemology, Part 6)

The third epistemological tenet is that the Triune God created all things (See previous posts on Biblical Epistemology at http://nct-blog.ptsco.org/category/biblical-epistemology-series/). The opening verse of Genesis confirms this great truth: “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” (Gen. 1:1). The introductory pericope of John’s Gospel (1:1-3) similarly states: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made.” Numerous other Scriptures testify that God created all things. Consider Acts 17:24-25: “God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands; 25Neither is worshipped with men’s hands, as though he needed anything, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things.” Also, reflect upon Revelation 4:11, wherein is declared: “Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.” Moreover, Colossians 1:16 teaches: “For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him.” In conclusion, God’s Word overwhelmingly instructs us that the Triune God created all things.
