A dense doctrine of creation establishes the goodness of the created material world and speaks of how God reveals God to the human creature. Our current culture is confused about the meaning of the word GOD. In today's culture, God could mean a set of moral standards, or an idea, or the universe itself, for an individual like Shirley MacLaine, or even for each individual himself. When it comes to their science departments, most Christian universities and colleges completely ignore the subject of creation and Genesis, or promote theistic evolution or some other harmonization of Genesis.
Every time the Bible alludes to the story of Creation in Genesis, the Scriptures describe Creation as a reliable representation of the origins of life. Literal direct creationism conflicts with what Phillip Johnson has termed “theistic naturalism” (theistic evolutionism, progressive creationism, etc.) But what if someone doesn't accept the biblical record and instead adopts a point of view such as progressive creation? Because all alternative views on origins hold that God used the process of natural selection for a long time to arrive at more advanced forms of life, these other views raise serious questions about God's character. The first chapter of Genesis raises all kinds of questions about creation in terms of deadlines, order, and interpretation. A third reason is that the Bible's creation doctrine is integrally linked to its teaching on salvation.
On the contrary, none of the alternative creation stories believe in the existence of a good and perfect world at first.
