How does the Bible show that God is a Creator?

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

´╗┐How does the Bible show that God is a Creator? Firstly, a Creator is someone who makes something into existence; the creator must be imaginative, creative and knowledgeable to give life into something. Having to create things into existence lies a purpose within it, e.g a pen is created for the purpose of writing on paper instead of using feather which has to be dipped into ink. As all things have a purpose the universe is created for a purpose hence the Bible shows how God is a creator and the purpose of creating the world and humans. So how does the Bible show that God is a creator? And the purpose that lies within it? The Bible shows that God is a creator as he is imaginative and powerful and created the world ex-nihilo (out of nothing) giving an implication that God is omnipotent and omniscient. There are two stories about the creation story one taken literally and the other is taken as a metaphor. ...read more.

and to have faith so that they can get into Heaven rather than Hell, there explains that How God is THE creator and not A creator, meaning that there is only God and not to follow the Babylonian religion that worshipped statues. The Bible also shows that God had intentions for the world, one of his intentions was to remove all evil that is in the world by doing so he sent Jesus to tell everyone about Gods ethical rules hence the Ten Commandments if everyone followed by this all evil will be removed from the world and will be able to get into Heaven. Once more the Bible says that 'I have made the earth, and created man upon it: I, even my hands, have stretched out the heavens, and all their host have I commanded' telling us that God created it with his Hands a feature that all humans have and that he created it with them. Yet again, the Bible literally tells us that God the creator made humans for a purpose, a purpose whether to worship him or not to worship him. ...read more.

Conclusion

else for example making water into wine we don?t know the process but it can be done relating that to How God created the world and that he is that ultimate creator for having the creativity and the knowledge for doing so making the term omniscient valid. In conclusion I think there are many myths to how God is the Creator and how he created the universe and everything that is held within it but with having God to make all of the universe he set out a purpose to worship him as Christians believe this life is a test and that God created the world and proved his existence through many ways. His second purpose was to get rid of evil in the world so did god create evil? Or did he separate good and evil? Like land and water and light and darkness. God left a signature of nature to remind Christians that God is existent and that Christians should worship him and look after the world giving dominion to Adam which is passed down.
