The starting point for knowledge is the recognition that God created the entire realm of space and matter. Without Him, nothing would exist.
“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” (Genesis 1:1). This is the simple-yet-profound foundation for all learning. It is the most fundamental of all fundamentals.
Not only did God create all things, but He owns all things, even after the entrance of sin into the world. The significance of this cannot be overstated. That's because if we get the issue of ownership wrong, it makes a huge difference in the way we interact with all things in God's world.
