Chapter IV. Of Creation

I. It pleased God the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, (Hbr 1:2; Jhn 1:2-3; Gen 1:2; Job 26:13; Job 33:4); for the manifestation of the glory of His eternal power, wisdom, and goodness, (Rom 1:20; Jer 10:12; Psa 104:24; Psa 33:5-6); in the beginning, to create, or make of nothing, the world, and all things therein whether visible or invisible, in the space of six days; and all very good, (Gen 1; Hbr 11:3; Col 1:16; Act 17:24).

II. After God had made all other creatures, He created man, male and female, (Gen 1:27); with reasonable and immortal souls, (Gen 2:7; Ecc 12:7; Luk 23:43; Mat 10:28); endued with knowledge, righteousness, and true holiness, after His own image, (Gen 1:26; Col 3:10; Eph 4:24); having the law of God written in their hearts, (Rom 2:14-15); and power to fulfil it, (Ecc 7:29): and yet under a possibility of transgressing, being left to the liberty of their own will, which was subject unto change, (Gen 3:6; Ecc 7:29). Beside this law written in their hearts, they received a command, not to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, (Gen 2:17; Gen 3:8-11, 23); which while they kept, they were happy in their communion with God, and had dominion over the creatures, (Gen 1:26, 28).

DISCLAIMER: Creeds, catechisms, and confessions do not replace Scripture, nor the authority of Scripture. The creeds, catechisms and confessions are included herein for purposes of reference. Blue Letter Bible aims to provide resources that cover a range of traditional, orthodox, conservative Christianity, for the benefit of all of our users. The inclusion of the creeds, catechisms, and confessions does not necessarily mean that the ministry agrees with each and every point in each, since some are coming from different Christian perspectives of faith, practice and worship. The user may find them useful as tools to assist in understanding or teaching the Scriptures, since they were drafted based upon Scripture. Used in their proper context, they can continue to aid us as much today as they did for our forefathers in centuries past.


The Blue Letter Bible ministry and the BLB Institute hold to the historical, conservative Christian faith, which includes a firm belief in the inerrancy of Scripture. Since the text and audio content provided by BLB represent a range of evangelical traditions, all of the ideas and principles conveyed in the resource materials are not necessarily affirmed, in total, by this ministry.
