Scientists use the word “biogenesis” to describe how life produces life. When the chickens lay eggs, the eggs can hatch and produce other chickens. Life produces life. This process goes all the way back to the beginning of life on earth. Not all scientists agree that God started and sustains this process, but the Bible declares it so. The Christian worldview is that God originated the entire universe. In language, not intended to be scientific but theological, Genesis Ch. 1 says, “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was formless and empty, and darkness covered the deep waters. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters. Then God said, “Let here be light,” and there was light. And God saw that the light was good. Then God separated the light from the darkness. God called the light “day” and darkness “night.” And evening passed and morning came, marking the first day.” Scientists seek to discover the process by which the universe came into existence. The Bible simply informs us that God spoke and it all happened. The book of Hebrews tells us that by faith we understand that the entire universe was formed at God’s command.” In other words, we take God at His word when He declares it so–since none of us was there when it happened!
