CreationMany years ago the brilliant scientist, Sir Isaac Newton, made a working model of the solar system. At the center of his model was a large golden ball representing the sun. Revolving around it were the planets, represented by smaller spheres attached to the ends of rods of varying lengths.

One day a friend who did not accept the biblical account of creation stopped by to visit Newton. When he came into Newton’s study and saw the working model of the solar system, he exclaimed, “What an exquisite thing! Who made it?”

“No one.” replied Newton.

“No one?” the man responded with a look of unbelief and skepticism.

“That’s right,” continued Newton, “these various sized spheres and rods and gears just happened to come together and form this intricate working model.”

Newton’s friend got the message: if this little table model bore silent testimony to its creator, how much more do the heavens declare the glory of God their Creator!

Sinful man seeks to reject the fact that the Lord our God is the Creator of the world and all things in it. Romans 1:18 tells us, “the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all the ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness.”

The first sentence of the first chapter of the first book of the Bible sets before us the truth about God as the Creator of the world and all that it contains in contradistinction to the false views held by sinful man.
