In The Beginning There Were Three by 

Medium : Acrylic on canvasSize : 4′ × 5′Year completed 2002I painted this illustration to publicly proclaim The Biblical account of a six literal day creation by the holy trinity, to be The true account of the origin of all thing that have been, are now, and will exist. I believe Evolution Theories have many wholes in them and lake sound evidences to declare Evolution as the true account of origin of all matter. I believe school should teach both theories,

and let the student decide which is truth for themselves.
The three figures of light that are holding the hour glass represent the trinity, The Father, The Son, The Holy Spirit, Who together created all thing. The back ground of the paint is suppose to illustrate the trinity created all things from nothing. The hour glass is suppose is to appear to be made of pure gold.
representing a creation with out , corruption, and decay, which would latter be part of the curse the creation would be subjected to be cause of man’s sin.
The top and bottom base of the hour glass, has the icon of the moon and sun six time to represent the six days of creation.
The six spheres floating inside the hourglass represent the six literal day, and what was created on each day. The first day God separated the darkness from the light. This spheres is placed at the bottom of the hourglass because sand in a hourglass always flows down.
The second Day God separated the sky from the sea, this is represented in the sphere located at the bottom right of the hourglass.
The third day God separated the land from the waters. Represented in the top half of the Sphere. The bottom part represent the plant life that was created on the same day.
The fourth day God creates outer-space, every star,and planet. God mentions The sun was created to light the earth by day, and the moon to light the earth by night. This is represented in the sphere located at the top middle of the hourglass.
The fifth Day God created the creatures of the air and the creatures of the water. This is represented in the sphere located in the top right of the hourglass.
The sixth day God created both the land creatures, and man. This sphere is located top left of the hourglass.

    Agree that we should be as open minded as possible and allow our hearts to bring us truth from all that is presented to us.

    Hi Stephen,

    I read most of what is submitted to the group I moderate including your works. I do value what you are sharing. Just have changed the group to keep what is accepted to a bare minimum. Think that your passion is enormous and that more of us should take your lead and go deeper inside for inspiration.

    Best Wishes Tony.

    This is wonderful work Stephen. I have just seen some great DVD’s this week on the universe and stars and the human body and how incredibly complex God has made everything and how everything that was made was made through Jesus Christ. The symbol of the Cross is in the furthest galaxy (seen in photographs taken by the Hubbel space telescope and beamed back to Earth) and the shape of the Cross is in the Laminin molecule which holds human bodies together. Truly wonderous! I have been away for a few days so may have missed some of your Bible studies – I will go back and check. Blessings to you my brother.

  • EstelleIt Is alway a pleasure to have you stop by. You sure have a Spirit of encouragement to share. Well I sure would be thankful if you would remember me in you prayer. Last week my stove blewup, my truck broke down, and i paid $500. to get it fixed and the machanic told me he couldn’t find a proublem. Yesterday my computer disconected from Redbubble when I try to up load 4 hour of work i did on leeson 6, of my mini series.So I didn’t have a Disneyland week. So we move on as a faithful soldier.I hope you will be blessed as you ketch up on the lesson you have missed, i am sure God will bless you as you do.Your fellow servant in The Christ.Stephen

    with all due respect, the “Biblical acount of a six literal day creation by the holy trinity” is not the only alternative to the evolutionary model. at least “design theory” advocates realise that. what about all of the thousands of other creation stories out there? what makes yours worthy of being taught and not others? surely schools should teach all of these theories in order to truly “let the student decide which is trueth for themselves”.

    secondly, the theory of evolution is not a theory in the general use of the word (ie a guess), but a theory in the scientific usage. a scientific theory is, “a logically self-consistent model or framework for describing the behavior of a related set of natural or social phenomena. It originates from or is supported by rigorous observations in the natural world, or by experimental evidence” (wikipedia).

    to describe the genesis story and evolution as theories with equal merit is misleading. one is supported by reams of evidence. the other is not and is essentually just a guess of expression of faith. it is a teacher’s duty to point this out before letting “the student decide which is trueth for themselves”. would a teacher present the theory of gravity as equal with the flying spaghetti monster’s theory of “intelligent falling” and then allow students to make up their own minds?
