There are many powerful scientific evidences to support the creation model of origins. In addition, there are a number of persuasive philosophical arguments for the existence of a creator God. In this presentation we’ll consider a powerful analogy for creation: human creativity.
If human beings were created in God’s image, we should reflect aspects of that image in our lives. One area where human beings mirror the image of God is in creative acts. When a person creates, there are three aspects of the creative process. These three aspects flow from the triune nature of God the Creator.
The three aspects of the creative process are idea, implementation, and interaction. These three are not necessarily linear and progressive “steps,” but concepts that envelope and define the creative action. When an artist creates a painting, the artist has an idea in mind. The artist then implements the idea using media such as paint and paper. The artist’s friends will provide feedback as they interact with the painting.
In this presentation, we’ll investigate several examples of human creativity and then connect the three aspects of the creative process to the three Persons of the Trinity and their roles in the creation of the heavens and the earth.
