Sample text

And we are told the Lord is "loving toward all he has made," a statement that includes an awesome number of living creatures around the globe. The Natural World Reveals God's Glory The psalmist used the theme of the visible creation to sing of the glory of its Maker. O Lord my God, you are very great; you are clothed with splendor and majesty. He wraps himself in light as with a garment; he stretches out the heavens like a tent and lays the beams of his upper chambers on their waters. He makes the clouds his chariot and rides on the wings of the wind.

How does this differ from pantheism?  Does God control the universe or not?  Are there benefits?  How may a study of the natural world bring us closer to God?  Since the Creation, the same Spirit conserves, renews, and withdraws life, performing a vital function in the realm of the natural world.  The Spirit is also the giver of spiritual gifts, which contribute to the establish­ Page 47 ment and maintenance of the body of Christ.  1:21, NASB).  Thus the Holy Spirit was vital in producing the Bible, the second means through which God revealed himself to humans.

A faith based on the love of God then becomes an outreach of service, to others, and to the entire creation.  What is the third way that God was revealed to humans?  What does this have to do with the Creation?  What are the implications for the natural world?  What does this tell us about the importance of the environment?  How do we accomplish this?  1:27, NRSV).  Nevertheless people are born with an ability to respond to God and with a capacity for hope.  Because people are made in God's image, every human being is worthy of honor and respect.
