Overview

The psalmist spoke about God, in Psalm 135:6, saying: “Whatsoever the Lord pleased, that did he in heaven, and in earth, in the seas, and all deep places.” Moreover, the psalmist rejoices (in Psalm 104:25) that God’s diverse doings are displayed in “this great and wide sea, wherein are things creeping innumerable, both small and great beasts.” Furthermore, the psalmist (in Psalm 107:24) notes that people can see and appreciate God’s glory as it is displayed in the oceans: “These see the works of the LORD, and his wonders in the deep.” God made and owns all creatures of the oceans, seas, and estuaries – and the very lives of all seas creatures glorify God.

Using a Biblical creation-based perspective, how do we recognize God’s providence in marine ecology, as God accomplishes purposes that He prioritized in the Genesis Mandate, including His goal that His diverse creatures be fruitful, multiply, and fill various habitats of our water-dominated planet?

God’s life-promoting purpose applies to all of earth’s habitats, including various kinds of saltwater environments (such as the ocean, bays, inlets, etc. Because God loves variety, we see great diversity of creatures (e.g., seabirds, marine mammals, fish, shellfish, etc.) and their activities in their saltwater habitats. Specific sea animals to be reviewed include whales, seals, sea otters, polar bears, sea gulls, penguins, crabs, oysters, barnacles, sea urchins, lobsters, tunafish, salmon, trout, herring, cod, anglerfish, sturgeon, zoöplankton, etc.

Also, because God is all-wise and caring, we observe great cleverness and logic in how He has organized the interactive relationships of saltwater-habitat creatures with their biotic community neighbors, as each of them “fill” parts of the geophysical environments.

A Biblical creation perspective is needed to understand what God has designed for (and is doing in) marine and estuarial habitats, in the lives of His amazing creatures. God’s providence (seen in biome ecology) is analyzed from various Scriptures (including Genesis, Deuteronomy, Job, Psalms, Lamentations, Amos, Jonah, Matthew, Luke, Romans, etc.), to appreciate how God has fitted His large and small animal creatures, who live in or use seawater habitats, to showcase His providential care and His bioengineering wisdom.

Unlocking the Mysteries of Genesis Lecture Series

 
  • Dates: August 25-26, 2017

  • City: Dallas, Texas

  • Location: First Baptist Church,
    1707 San Jacinto st., 75201

  • Credit: 1.0 ACSI-approved CEU (Bible)

Overview

Have you wondered how the creation story of Genesis fits with the evolutionary theories of popular science? You’re not alone. Many Christians wrestle with the seeming disparity between faith and science. They want to believe the inerrancy of Scripture, but it’s difficult to reconcile their beliefs with what science texts teach.

The Unlocking the Mysteries of Genesis Seminar, held at First Baptist Church of Dallas, Texas, seeks to resolve this conflict by answering key questions about the origin of human life, the age of the universe, and how scientific evidence lines up with the Bible.
