Principle of Creation

Hi! Everyone, I want to share this post for those who would like to know God more deeper. And I request everyone who will be reading this to be an open minded person not a closed minded…so here it is.

Principle of Creation
Throughout history, man has been struggling to solve the fundamental question of life and the universe. Yet no one has been able to give satisfactory answers, for no one has known the original plan for the creation of man and the universe. Furthermore, there remains a fundamental question to be settled, a question not so much about the facts of existence as about the cause of existence. Questions about life and the universe, of course, cannot be solved without understanding the nature of God. The “Principle of Creation” deals with these fundamental questions.

The Dual Characteristics of God and His World of Creation

    How can we know the characteristics of God, who is an invisible being? We can know them by observing the world of His creation. For this reason, Paul said:

Ever since the creation of the world his invisible nature, namely, his eternal power and deity, has been clearly perceived in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.(Rom. 1:20)

Just as the work of an artist is a visible manifestation of its maker’s invisible nature, every creation is a “substantial object” of the invisible deity of God, the Creator. His nature is displayed in each creation. Just as we can sense an author’s character through his works, so we can perceive God’s deity by observing His creation.
In order to know the nature of God’s deity, let us examine the common factors which can be found throughout His creation.
No being, whether it be man, animal, plant, molecule, or even the atom, the basic unit of all matter, can exist except through the reciprocal relationship of its subject and object parts. For example, mankind is composed of men and women, animals of male and female, plants contain both stamen and pistil, molecules are formed from positive and negative ions, and even the simplest atom is composed of a proton and electron. This clearly suggests that all things exist only through the reciprocal give and take ralationship of subject and object.
Furthermore, every created being has both an external form and an internal character. Though differing in value or importance according to their level of existence, the external form and internal character are simply the two relative aspects of each existing being.
As Paul indicated, the creation does reveal what God is like, and it shows us that God, the First Cause of the creation, exist as a harmonized being of Original Character and Original Form, as well as of Positivity and negativity.
When we speak of God as a holy God or God of love, we are refferring to a part of His Original Character, whereas when we speak Of God as a God of Power, we are referring to His Original Form. God is the causal being of all things. It is God’s character that produced the motives, order and purpose for the created world, and it was His form, which took the form of energy, that produced the created world.

Hi! I would like to quote Pro Crastinating (I’m sure he’s not), super (agree…) moderator

(definitely…), Paul on this one.
I just knew someone would react to this thread. TF is made up of people with various beliefs, it was just a matter of time before someone disagrees with what has been posted. I’m sure there are also others who just refrain from posting here or ignore it for the greater good.

So before this “discussion” turns to worse, may I suggest to jhunex to just make a personal blog with religious “sharing” as the main theme? After all, that’s what this thread is turning out to be. I’m sure interested TF members will visit it and post comments as well. Just link to it from this thread.

If you don’t know how to make a blog, just go to Blogspot ( and create your blog there. It’s free and very easy to use.
I have not taken too much time reading your post. But my short experience in TF and my long one outside TF have taught me that talking about religion can only be a ticking bomb.
I am sure you are a nice fella and you wouldn’t mind making your own blog spot for this kind of topic. Inspirational as it can be for some people, I think it would be best that you do as Paul has suggested so as not to create ire among those who would differ from your beliefs.
But please post more and contribute to this nice place in the net we call TF, but perhaps tone down on the proselytizing.
Hope to see you around some more.
