love
God is
love
– because
love
creates life
Creation is the expression of Gods very being
Creation reflects Gods nature

Why is there something rather than nothing?
What are the consequences if life is
designed
?

What are the consequences if life is
not designed
?
Think pair share
In Summary:

Science and religion are not contradictory
God created out of love
God is the creator and created order and sustains it
Mankind is in the image of God and valuable
Q2: Why did God create us?

A2: God created us out of free and unselfish love.
When a man loves, his heart overflows. He would like to share his joy with others. He gets this from his creator. Although God is a mystery, we can still think about him in a human way and say: Out of the surplus of his love he created us. He wanted to share his endless joy with us who are creatures of his love.
