The Christian Science Monitor

Nothing, almost, seems to concern the man in the street so little as the thought of God as the creator. Taking the evidence of his physical senses to be the universe which, he believes, originated in the distant past, creation is something so very far removed from him in time that he hardly gives it any serious thought nowadays. The subject is not at all of vital interest, so he reasons, in comparison with the tremendously important affairs of to-day,—it does not affect the stock market, nor the commerce of the world, and it seems to have little or nothing to do with war, pestilence, or calamities of any kind. Believing so thoroughly, therefore, in a universe of matter, the man in the street is usually callous to the demands of Spirit, especially when God is to be acknowledged as the only cause and creator.

The prophets and apostles of old were fully aware of the hardened heart of humanity on this very subject of creator, for all of these ancient seers magnified Deity as the one and only cause and particularly emphasized the great necessity of acknowledging God, good, continuously as the creator. The keynote was struck in the first chapter of Genesis and repeated with greater and greater emphasis throughout the Scriptures until there came the grand finale in the writings of John. "All things," he says concisely in his gospel, "were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made."
