God created 'Mother Nature' and everything else

Touch Points

I am troubled when I hear people refer to God’s creation as “Mother Nature.”

The Graeco-Roman Goddess, Cybele, was worshipped as Mother-earth, known as “the Great Mother.”

The earth, our planet, was formed and made by God himself.

He hath established (to set in a secure position), and he created it not without purpose. He created it to be inhabited. I am the Lord; and there is none else. (Isaiah 45:18) God stretches the northern sky over empty space and hangs the earth on nothing. (Job 26:7) It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in; (Isaiah 40:22).

The Greeks and Romans had many comparable deities (idols) made of silver, gold, and some wood, but these were just idols, nothing. Our God is a living God – someone who hears us when we pray, someone with whom we can have a personal relationship.

Our earth is a beautiful planet where God placed us to worship and adore him, for he spoke all things into existence, and he holds all things together. Can anyone measure the space in the heavens?

How great is our God. To him belongs all honor, glory and praise.
