The Two Posts of Christianity

There are two pillars of a complete doctrine of God's interation with the world:

Creation and Providence.

Both are under attack on a daily basis. Providence is under attack from anti-Calvinists, and Creation is under attack from Evolutionists. Denial of Providence is key to affirming man's individual sovereignty. If God is in control of everything that happens, man cannot be. Likewise, denial of Creation is key to affirming man's supremecy. If God created man, then man exists for God's pleasure. If man rose from among the apes, then man has pulled himself up to the place where he is.

Praise be to our Creator and Provider!
