Question 8

Question 8

The Correct Answer Is: TRUE


Psalms 139:13-16: "13 For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother's womb.  14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well.  15 My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.  16 Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed.  And in Your book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them."


Romans 5:6-11: "6 For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. 7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. 8 But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. 10 For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. 11 And not only that, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation."


For the God of the Bible to truly be the Creator God of this universe, he must be all-powerful, for after all, he must be able to create life from nothing.  He must be able to keep this universe from tearing itself apart by upholding the natural laws that govern it.  And he must be powerful enough to raise the dead, if mankind has any hope of life after death.  If the God of the Bible cannot do those things, then he isn't a God to be believed in.  But God's omnipotence goes beyond simply being able to create things for the Bible describes for us the fact that God is able to bring about all of human history to solve the greatest problem: sin.  From the time that Adam and Eve ate of the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, sin has been present in this world, and when men and women sin, they are separated from God, for God won't accept mankind in sin.  And what's worse, since the price for sin could only be paid by the shed blood of a sinless human being, without God's help, there was nothing mankind could do to get back into good standing with God.  If the God of the Bible therefore isn't powerful enough to solve this problem, he isn't a God to be believed in.  But of course he did solve this problem, by sending Jesus, to live a sinless life, shed his blood as the price for sin through his death on the cross, thus solving the sin problem forever.  And so, if I want to get back into good standing with God, I must receive God's grace, which is done when I in faith obey Jesus as revealed in the Bible (Ephesians 2:8, Hebrews 5:9).  The God of the Bible is truly all-powerful.
