Forest Ecology: Admiring God‘s Providence for Woodland Creatures

  • Dates: October 12 & 19, 2017 (2 Thursdays)
    This schedule change is due to expected gasoline shortages in Dallas.

  • Time: 6:00 - 9:00 p.m.

  • Location: Institute for Creation Research, 1806 Royal Lane, Dallas, Texas 75229 (Classroom A)

  • Credit: 1.0 ACSI-approved CEU (Bible or Educational)

  • Instructor: Dr. James J. S. Johnson (ICR-SOBA, ACSI-credentialed CEU provider 2153)


The psalmist spoke for God, in Psalm 50:10, saying: ”For every beast of the forest is Mine, and the cattle upon 1000 hills.“ God made and owns forest creatures — and their very lives glorify God. Using a Biblical creation-based perspective, how do we recognize God‘s providence in forest ecology, as He accomplishes purposes that He prioritized in the Genesis Mandate, including His goal that His diverse creatures be fruitful, multiply, and fill various habitats of the earth?

This purpose applied to all of earth‘s habitats, including various kinds of forests, such as mixed deciduous ”Eastern forests“ of America‘s East Coast states, evergreen-dominated ”Western forest“ woodlands of the Rocky Mountain range, and ”spruce-moose“ boreal forests of Canada (or the comparable taiga of Siberian Russia), — or coastal mangrove forests, or swampland ”wet woods“, etc.

Because God loves variety, we see great diversity of creatures (e.g., birds, mammals, bugs) and their activities in their woodland homes. Also, because God is all-wise and caring, we observe great cleverness and logic in how He has organized the interactive relationships of forest creatures with their biotic community neighbors, as each of them ”fill“ parts of the geophysical environments.

Having a Biblical creation perspective is crucial for understanding what God has designed for (and is doing in) forest habitats, in the lives of His amazing creatures living there. Principles of God‘s providence (seen in biome ecology) are analyzed from various Scriptures (including Genesis, Deuteronomy, Psalms, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Zechariah, etc.), to show how God has prepared His large and small animal creatures, who live in forest habitats, to showcase His providential care and His bioengineering wisdom.
