God Independent of Creation

God Independent of Creation

By L. A. Reed
This article, dealing with the nature and the personality of God, was originally published on The Present Truth, September 9, 1909, Pg. 563; Republished on The Present Truth, August 28, 1913, Pg. 549

GOD is not nature, and nature is not God. The two cannot in any case be used interchangeably. God's handiwork in nature is not God Himself in nature. God's power in nature does not identify God Himself with nature. Nature has its own individuality, and God has His distinct personality…

Studies in the Gospel of John. Christ the Beginning

By E. J. Waggoner
Excerpt from The Present Truth December 22, 1898, Vol. 14, 51

All things were made by Him; and without Him was not anything made that was made.

What line can measure the depth of this love?”  {AUCR, April 1, 1901 par. 10}
