The Creator/Creature Distinction

April 2, 2007 § Leave a comment

Acts 17:28, 28 for in Him we live and move and have our being….

James 4:15, Instead you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we shall live and do this or that.”

Here in these passages we find the fundamental relation of the creature to his Creator. In these passages every aspect of the creatures existence is presented as being predicated upon God’s immediate willing and upholding. It is clear in the context of both passages, that both Paul and James, include not just the mere physical existence, but the mental aspect of the creatures existence as well. In these passages we find that even our actions, choices, intentions, etc., are predicated upon God’s immediate willing as well.

Blessings in Christ,
