Day > Night

The deep had to be transformed in order to produce light. Formless became formed, empty became full, dark became light. However, this caused a new darkness: night. Not the absence of light, the obstruction of light.

Let Light Be

When God said, let light be, the sacrificial lamb was slain from the foundation of the world. That's why it went dark at the end of the first day, the second occurrence of darkness that we have to account for called night.

Spiritual Separation

Separation is a scriptural doctrine which is generally thought of in terms of Christians holding themselves apart from the rest of the world and avoiding worldly distraction which can lead us into sin. There's more to it than that.

Good and Evil

The purpose of creation is to separate good from evil. A reasonable question is: Why were they mingled together in the first place? If God is good, then the evil had to be created from good. The sinless became sin.

Upholding all Things

If you want to deny God, then God isn't going to stop you. In fact, if you want to reject the truth then the Bible tells us how you will end up: with a mind which cannot comprehend the truth.

The Purpose of Creation

One of the things which allows Matty's Paradigm to be a consistent with the broad narrative of scripture is understanding that creation has a specific purpose. This purpose harmonizes physics with spirituality.
