By April 1, 2015Personally, I think it is marvelous that the universe is so vast and that God is said to have created it with His fingers. Effortless. No big thing. "He made the stars also" (Genesis 1:14), like a universe 150 billion light years across. If we could wrap our mind around the vastness of creation, it might make us think that it is small and we are bigger than we are. The truth is that creation is incomprehensibly vast and we are indeed very small. |

Question from a reader:Please explain your interchangeable use of the Hebrew words bara (create from nothing) and asah (restore) in Chapter 9 of Heaven. With the distinction blurred, what does that do to the doctrines of origin?
