He still controls the rising and setting of the sun, the direction of the wind – the forces of nature are under His control, and He does with them what He pleases. There has also been the question as to whether God is active in His creation today, separate and apart from scripture. Well the answer is a LOUD YES! “The Lord holds all things together.” (Colossians 1:17) Today, science has put a great deal of stress on mankind that we were causing destruction to the plant by
Accordingly, Matthew 26:41 lets us know that “… the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak” (New International Version). The Natural World The natural world is a consequential part of the biblical worldview, which is our origin. Moreover, our origin, per se the natural world, materialized because of God. Likewise, before God, there was nothing; he spoke the words, and everything became substance. In other words, God was and is the inventor, the producer, the creator, the progenitor, the maker, the author, the founder, the mastermind, the father of all creation and deity to all.
On the third day, God said for there to be grass, and fruit trees on the Earth, “And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the her yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so” On the fourth day, God divided the day from the night, and used a great light to do so. This also indicated the seasons, day, and years. On the fifth day, God put life onto Earth by creating animals in the waters, such as Whales. He also created flying creatures. On the sixth day God created life on land.
Everyone believed in God and the idea of sinning resulted in Hell, and following the Ten Commandments resulting in an eternal bliss of being with God in heaven. So which scientist and philosophers wanted to challenge this? The first set of scientist’s were Copernicus and Brahe. These scientists were the first to agree that we were not the centre of the universe. That it was the sun at the centre and everyone moved around it in a helio-centric motion.
Stevens uses the same technique to commence his poem, saying, “There it was, word for word,/ The poem that took the place of a mountain” (1-2). The language used here is reminiscent of the Genesis passage before it. In both cases, the creation of the thing in question is simply spoken into being, and is then observed. During the process of creation, both works appear to pay close attention to the details of their world. In Genesis, it is said, “And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.
In Genesis, Yahweh chose a man known as Noah. Noah was a righteous man chosen for his strong faith. In the Epic of Gilgamesh, Ea chose a man by the name of Utnapishtim. Utnapishtim was chosen by Ea because of an oath to secretly survive the flood. Ea went behind the assembly of gods’ decision to exterminate all of mankind and warned Utnapishtim in a dream.
The trees, the birds, the fish, the weeds that we all hate dealing with. God created this universe and supplied it with everything that humankind needs. Human beings are mankind. It is you and I, created in the image of God. After we die, the bible tells us that as long as we believe that God is real and that He sent His only son to teach us and then die on the cross for our sins and then to rise again three days later, that we will live with God and all
“What do the Ten Commandments say about Jewish (and Christian and Muslim) beliefs in the powers of God?” The Ten Commandments demonstrate that Jewish, Christian and Muslim beliefs are similar in that God’s powers are that God’s powers are exceptional because there is only one God to be worshiped and he is the most powerful god for creating Earth itself. In adhering to the Ten Commandments, Jews, Christians and Muslims are surrendering to God’s supreme power and in turn, shall benefit in the afterlife. The Jewish, Christian and Muslim religions are all monotheistic and therefore they worship only one god. In these three religions, God is the only god that can be praised and worshiped according to the Ten Commandments. This is evident in Exodus, the First Commandment is, “I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt […]” From this statement, God is declaring his almighty power and complete authority over his followers.

Specifically, the book of Genesis in the Bible contradicts the definition of evolution for two main reasons; stability and purpose. The book of Genesis is firm in the belief of God. In Genesis 1:1 it is stated, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” From there, Genesis states that God also created light, the seas, animals, humans, and plants. All of these things were created in six days by the Lord God. According to Genesis, the universe and everything in it was created in an organized, stable way.
