Was the universe started by natural or supernatural means?

This question is one hardly addressed by Creationists who fall so easily into the trap of "natural means" set by evolutionists.Do you really believe the Biblical account of creation written by Moses? Or do you just believe some of the account and try to fit the Biblical story into a "scientist's mold of the origins of the universe?

What you believe about this subject; what each man believes about it, affects one more than they think. The story of God's creation is part of the gospel message. The gospel is the power of God, the Word of God for all men. The apostle John brought it to the forefront in his gospel narrative,

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made..."John 1:14 (KJV)

"And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth." " John 1:1-3 (KJV)

Paul also makes it very clear in Colossians who the Son of God really is,

"For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: 17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist." Col 1:16-17 (KJV)

Having read these things from the Bible what do you say about the question posed above? What do you think and what do you really believe?

I'm all for the AMEN, Mark!

I don't think the problem is one of trying to fit the Biblical story into science, but of trying to fit it into ANY context that will define it.  A spiritual context is better.  Thus Paul wrote:  "Spiritual things are spiritually discerned."  A second before the creation, there were no scientific laws at all.  But also, there was no creation. If a no-creation state of affairs was familiar to us, no problem.  But since we don't have that comparison, we must either simply affirm or deny.   So all we can do is AMEN the creation account, not fit it into any perspective.

God's Son spoke all these words and as he spoke, it was done. This was supernatural means far and above what man can imagine. It was not magic, but great and unlimited power of the Creator that brought about something from nothing just as he spoke. This is the power of his word. In like manner he healed the sick while he walked this earth, whoever came to him for help. He just spoke the word and it happened.

"In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth." Gen 1:1 (KJV) Some take great liberty with this text taking it out of context. They say, "God can do things however he wants, so he could have used billions of years to make the heaven and the earth."  Not according to the context of the next few verses.  "And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.. .

And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters... 

And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear...

And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth...

And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: 15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth...

And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. ..

And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. ..

And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth...

29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. 30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat
Gen 1:1--30 (KJV)
