So far, we have sketched out the story of Creation as we find it in Scripture and we have compared it to other Creation accounts, both historical and contemporary. Now, we can start to think through the implications of Creation.
First of all, we want to look at the doctrinal implications. What are the important truths we must believe about Creation and how do they relate systematically to other beliefs, especially to what we have seen so far about how we know God (revelation) and who God is?
We will then move from this to thinking practically and pastorally. How does a right doctrine of creation and Fall affect how we live?
So, in this section, we will highlight some of the key doctrinal beliefs that the Bible teaches about the Creation. We will then go on in the next section to look at the Doctrine of the Fall.
