Henry Morris, on the ‘Goodness’ of Creation

The Sunday feature of the Worldly Saints blog is all about quotes. No commentary from me, no reflection, etc. Just a provocative or informative quote from a saint in church history.

Morris Henry III“Whatever God said was ‘good’ would have to be in harmony with His divine nature. Since God is holy, He could not deceive us about the order of the creation week. Since God is omniscient, He could not guess or use trial and error methodology. God would not experiment. God would not produce inferior things. He can do only holy acts. He cannot create, make, or shape non-functional processes. All of this clear evidence requires that we who read Genesis 1 understand ‘good’ to mean ‘flawless function’.”

  • Henry M. Morris, III “Genesis and the Character of God”
