Take a close look at the Bible (2)

The Bible tells us that God is unique and all living things derive their live from his energy known as his spirit. The Bible puts it this way:

"one God the Father, of whom are all things" ( 1 Corinthians 8:6 )

Further, the forces, laws and principles which govern the universe are a unity. This is a challenging statement given all the different theories of evolution.



The Bible reveals there is one God who is the Creator and sustainer of all things, by stating

"in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth" (Genesis 1:1).

He is also known as the Uncreate and is One Person, all powerful and all wise. He describes himself as

"The LORD, the LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth" (Exodus 34:6).

Also that he dwells in the heavens in unapproachable light. He is everywhere present by his spirit and nothing can be hidden from him.

He is the author of life and death. He is the God who caused the Holy Scriptures to be revealed, written and preserved, and who in his kindness devised a plan to give us hope for the future and rescue us from everlasting death through our personal faith. That plan and faith is centred in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ and none other, who God says is his only begotten Son. He requires us to obey his laws, and is willing to forgive us, but he does not overlook rebellion and what is false. He is jealous for the dignity and supremacy of his Holy Name which is what is meant by the Lord’s Prayer,

"Hallowed be thy Name"
