Creation Theology- General Aspects of Creation

Help us to find God. No one can help you there. Why not? For the same reason that no one can help the fish to find the ocean.  Anthony de Mello. One Minute Wisdom. (New York, NY: Image, Doubleday, 1988).

In Him we live and move and have our being. Acts 17:28

Creation is God manifest: physical creation and spiritual creation. Source emanates and infuses all that is, but at the same time, remains source. In a Trinitarian paradigm, all three God concepts exist at once: form (incarnation), formless (spirit) and source (Father). All matter is a fleeting expression of energy/spirit. We perceive form, but the reality is all is energy/spirit. In the same way, the physical universe as we know it, is God’s expression of God’s self. The name “Yahweh” can mean, “the One who causes to be.” “I Am” simply means I am everything; I am what is. We, all of creation, formed and formless, live within God and are of God.
