Foundation & Key Concepts
THIS PAGE IS INCOMPLETE - IT WILL NOT BE FULLY DEVELOPED UNTIL ALL THE "BIBLE PAGES" ARE ADDED.
Scripture tells us that you already know at least something about God, even though you may suppress that knowledge - and perhaps may even claim to be an atheist or agnostic.
This is a key (though largely forgotten) concept, in understanding how God accomplishes his purposes in this world. Though he can go against the "laws of nature" (which he created), he normally uses those laws to display his power, rather than going against them.
Looking collectively at past, present and future, we discover that Scripture describes a total of five different world conditions - each with a significantly different ecological make-up, so that they could (in a sense) be called different "worlds." Between each of these is a major catastrophic judgment that is responsible for causing the radical environmental change.
Many "miscommunications" occur because of changes in the meanings of words and concepts. Some changes will naturally occur over time, as languages develop and change. But in recent decades, many of the changes have been deliberate, as hostility toward the God of the Bible has increased, and as relativistic attitudes have crept into all areas of life.
