When you have a limited time to tell someone about God, what are the important things for a person to know? For a person who knows nothing about God, I would be hard-pressed to start anywhere except with the simple concept of God as creator.
What is interesting is that this is precisely the place the founding fathers of our country started in laying out their case for independence.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
The very guarantor of our most fundamental rights is, according the founding fathers, the Creator.
The founding fathers concluded some very important things from the idea of God as creator. They saw logically the same thing that Paul outlines in Romans 1—that the creation is a self-evident fact. Something that is self-evident needs no proof. It is there and its self is evidence. Let’s look at how this simple concept—of God as creator—has far-reaching implications.
