to claim to be a Christian and deny that God created all things
ex nihilo, (out of nothing) is ignorance of God’s Word at best, a
denial of the power, wisdom, even the person of God (by

deny fundamentals such as these.
Such truth is received by faith, but the Christian faith is
based on facts that God has revealed to us. The facts behind
our faith in every respect, provide foundational knowledge
indeed. But to know that we are in the loving arms of the
Creator of all things and Who’s sovereign wisdom is over all that
comes to pass brings us a comfort and peace that passes all
