Because everything is created from nonexistent materials by God, He has the power to give sinners a fresh "spiritual life." This is achieved through the Holy Spirit. The Bible states that God can "give life to the dead and calls into existence the things that do not exist." Because He is able to do so he is also able to give faith to "those who do not know him."

God is undefinably above all of his creations. But because God is the all mighty creator he is also existent within all of his beings. It was stated by St. Augustine that God is "Higher than my highest and more inward than my innermost self."

In a more literal sense every human is a direct product of God's divine work. It is said that each person is not Traducianism. This means that the soul is not inherited through the parents only the physical traits are.

Creation doesn't involve any pre-existent object. This means it is not a "change or transformation", rather it is as stated, creation. Being that we are all created from the same "Creator" we are all dependent of Him.

An example of an organic fecundity is the way we were produced by God. It is rather difficult to prove that something can be created from nothing. Surprisingly this theory is widely undisputed, other than by a few theorists who even admit to it possibly being correct.

I think you should be able to form a strong thesis with the info you have found. Did you find an interview source?
