  • COLUMN: It's about capital 'H-I-M,' not about you

    Colossians 1:16 says “For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth.”

    The entire universe and every molecule, atom and electron were created by Jesus Christ. Everything we cannot see with our physical senses is called the invisible realm and has been created by God.
