Romans Won: Creation Wins the Evidence Contest
St. Paul was right: the knowledge of God is obvious from creation. Here’s a new short film that powerfully reinforces that point.
In his letter to the Romans, chapter 1, Paul argued that no person can claim ignorance of God. The Creator has revealed himself through what he has made. Romans 1:19-20 says,
For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world.
If there are any who doubt this is true, they should watch Illustra Media’s latest short film, “The Call of Creation.” Here it is, with a panoply of striking images that powerfully show forth Paul’s argument in living color:
We sincerely hope that by watching this film, you felt the call of God in your heart to desire a personal relationship with your Maker. In the book of Romans, Paul develops the message of the “gospel of God” (good news), and how he provided the way for that relationship. We encourage you to study this rich letter to understand God’s revelation of himself, and how to find forgiveness for your offenses against God’s righteous character.

Many Bible students and preachers consider Romans 1 the most powerful development of the case for general revelation, but it is not the only one (see also Psalm 8, Psalm 19, Psalm 139 and others). The message of creation is powerful and rich. It leaves everyone accountable for the knowledge of God in creation and conscience. Nobody can say they didn’t have any evidence. No one has an excuse for rebellion or ingratitude. Listening to the message in creation and responding is free to every person on Earth, even those who don’t have a Bible or a preacher.
