The Link Between Creation, Redemption and Those Called to Ministry
Listen to Tom McCall on the doctrine of Creation and God
In the opening session of the 2019 Theology Conference, Dr. Tom McCall, professor of biblical and systematic theology and director of the Carl F.H. Henry Center for Theological Understanding at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, Illinois, explored the ideas of God as Creator, our place as creatures and the role to which God has called us in ministry to this world.
In Dr. McCall’s lecture, “The Doctrine of Creation and God,” he unpacked the “who” question related to the doctrine of Creation and the link between the doctrine of Creation and our call as ministers of the gospel.
“There is not one lost soul, not one broken sinner, no one in the entire creation about whom Jesus does not cry out, ‘he is mine!’ Jesus has this authority because He’s the Creator. He has this authority, and He now stands sovereign over it all. And He exercises this authority through His disciples, through those hesitating and doubting worshipers. ‘All authority has been given to me.’ Do you see the link between Creation and redemption? Do you see the link between Creation, redemption and those who are called to gospel ministry? ‘All authority has been given, therefore go and make disciples.’” — Dr. Tom McCall
