God Mighty Creator

Scripture is unambiguous, God is creator.

The Divine Other

God as creator means that God is other-than the created order. God is not manufactured by the creation neither is God a concept that aggregates human action in some way. God is an active participant in relationship with that which is created.

In addition, God as creator means that everything depends on God in some way. God is the ultimate power that not only brings into existence all, but also continues to maintain all that we see. (Psalms 24:1-2; Psalms 104:10-14).

In addition, God as creator implies that creation itself is a revelation of God as noted in Psalms 19:1-3 and Romans 1:20.

Why We Need a Creator

Isaiah 65:17 and Revelation 21:1 lets us know that God has in mind a “new heaven and a new earth.” This implies a “recreation” of all that we see. But more than making a new heaven and a new earth, God has in mind a new creature for 2 Corinthians 5:17 declares that each human being can become made new by the power of the Gospel.

We need a creator because we have been fashioned into sin, but a creator God can turn that around. We need a creator because even though the world is a world of pain, God will recreate the order itself to be in line with God’s benevolent purpose. We need a creator because we are not the same as we were in the beginning, but praise God God still has the power to save by making us over anew.
