Creation and Governance (Aquinas 101)


Video from The Thomistic Institute


“The Lord has made all things for Himself.” (Proverbs 16:4) Creation is not God igniting the first spark of physical things or changing or moving things from one state to another. Rather, it is God giving existence and being to everything simultaneously and always. Insofar as things exist, they depend upon God who causes them to be and this activity is creation. Everything that exists is being created by God, sustained in being. Creation is not God igniting the first spark of physical things or changing or moving things from one state to another.
