What does the Bible say?It is safe to say that in order to believe anything that is written in the Bible a belief in God must precede it. I suppose that is why this foundational truth is the very first words in the very first Book of the Bible. You only have to look around at nature. It screams of a creator outside ourselves. For those of you who believe, here are some scriptures to back it up.
The earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof, the world and those who dwell therein, for he has founded it upon the seas and established it upon the rivers.
He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made.
For every house is built by someone, but the builder of all things is God.
The heavens are yours; the earth also is yours; the world and all that is in it, you have founded them.Romans 11:36
For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be glory forever. Amen.
