Serialization Blog

I will be using this Serialization Blog to post articles as episodes in a series. You will be able to find the full articles on the Articles page of this website. I’ll also be throwing in some stand-alone posts as well. These Principles of Creation posts are based on my original ideas and the hope I have to renew the whole approach today to Christian Creationism and science.

#10 Creation and Act

The creative power of God is common to the whole Trinity and belongs to the essence of God.  God is the Father of the Son from eternity; while He is the Father of the creature in time.
