What does it mean that God created all things? What does it mean that God created out of nothing? Can one believe in a creator God and in science? Is there any real reason why one cannot hold to a biblical worldview and still believe in science? Did God create all things in seven days or is something else going on in Genesis 1 and 2?
In this episode of The Podechesis Podcast, Brett, Jim, and Allen discuss question 9 of John Wesley’s Revision of the Westminster Shorter Catechism, what is the work of creation? The guys will talk about the seven days of creation in Genesis 1, why a being good readers of the Bible can help us understand what the Bible is actually saying in the first chapter of Genesis, and how a belief in a creator God actually draws us to a life of worship.
Along the way, Jim will entice us with yet another snippet into meeting Patrick Stewart, Brett will admit that he has no idea how to use Instagram, and Allen will dream of fishing alongside of Bigfoot.
