Faith in Evolution from Nothing, or in Creation from Nothing?

Misotheists and other evolutionists ridicule Bible-believing Christians for saying that God created the universe out of nothing. It is common for them to say that we believe in magic, using a definition of that word that appears to support their charge.

However, materialists believe that the universe came from nothing. This is not empirical science even though some cosmogonists claim that it is entirely scientific. Not only do their views fit the same accusation of magic leveled against us, but they disingenuously redefine nothing to mean...well, something that is not nothing.

Unbelievers accuse Christians of believing in magic because God created out of nothing. Their views do resemble magic, with nothing meaning something.

Some Christian compromisers add to the Word of God, inserting the pagan idea that God created everything by using existing materials. Interesting that unbelievers also have nothing but is really something that created the universe.

The fact is that God created ex nihilo, which is out of nothing. The Creator is outside of creation, the uncaused First Cause. He is Jesus Christ, the Second Person of the Trinity.

The first verse of the Bible provides the foundational truth of our faith and the fundamental truth concerning the universe: “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” (Genesis 1:1). The phrase “heavens and the earth” means the entire universe.

In the Hebrews 11 list of what we are to understand by faith, the first thing noted is the creation of all things by the word of God: “By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible” (v. 3). Thus, we are to receive by faith the supreme truth that everything in this present universe was brought into existence literally out of nothing by the good pleasure and will of God.
