Read Know the Truth: Chapter 7: The Work of Creation (Pages 95-106)

Questions for Discussion

1. State the Christian doctrine of creation and indicate its basis.

2. Explain why Christians over the centuries have understood creation as ‘out of nothing’. Explore the implications of this position (a) negatively, i.e. what it denies, (b) positively, i.e. what it affirms.

3. What significance does God’s ‘upholding’ of the universe have for the way we think of his relationship to the world?

4. In what respects may biblical teaching on creation contribute to scientific investigation?

5. List the considerations to be borne in mind in interpreting the account of creation in Genesis 1 and 2.

6. ‘Miracles do not happen’ (Matthew Arnold). ‘A miracle must be experienced before it can be believed.’ Discuss.

7. What does Scripture have to tell us about the angels of God? What profit can the Christian derive from this teaching?
