God created all things for His glory

God created all things both visible and invisible for the purpose of His glory and to demonstrate His eternal power, wisdom, and goodness.  He created every part of the universe from the atom to the galaxies.  He created each species of life separately and finished His work by creating Adam from the dust and Eve from Adam.  The entire cosmos has its beginning and end in God’s will.  The universe is in no way independent of God and the does not reflect a deficiency in Him but it’s creation and its sustainment represent the continuation of God’s creative power and ability.  Both Adam and Eve were created equally in the image of God without sin.  He gave them knowledge, righteousness, and holiness having God’s natural law of conscience written in their hearts and the power to fulfill that law.  They lived with the possibility of transgressing since they were left to the liberty of their own will.  The sacredness of human personality is evident in that God created man and woman in His own image and therefore every person of every race possesses full dignity and is worthy of respect and Christian love.
