I thought about it and decided the best place to start is at the beginning and since I am going to do a study of doctrine for you., that beginning should begin farther back.
Back to before the beginning. In school, I am sorry to say, you have been told a lie. The earth has not always been. It had a beginning and that beginning did not start it a big bang. God spoke things into existence.
Okay, so let's say there was that bang. What was behind that bang. Great masses building up pressure and all at once the pressure is released. Humm. Where did the mass come from?
I hold there was nothing in the beginning. No matter. No form. No solids. Nothing.
But God. Why?
Didn't I say we needed a cause. A cause who is not caused?
And God had no reason to cause anything. He was not lonely. God exists in a Trinity.-- Father, Son, And Hold Spirit. He had Himself and no needs. More on this in another post.
So where did the world come from? Why creation? God spoke it in to existence. The earth and everything on it. The sea, the land, the plants, the animals, and man.
And it was all good.
But what happened to make it not good?
Questions which we will look at as this study goes on.
