Excerpt from Natural Theology and Genesis A natural theology treats of the existence and character of God as these may be kwn from reason and nature. A natural theology in its relations to Genesis accredits the form of the argument and the sequence of the thought to inspiration. We feel warranted in this contradictory form of title from the fact, that on a close analysis of the record of creation the argument proceeds in the steps followed by those who have discussed the question in a natural theology, presenting their evidences from the ontological, the cosmological, the teleological, and the moral sources. If w we attempt to write an exposition on the record of creation we naturally fall into this line of argument. And it is found on close analysis of the record of creation, that God has already given us a work on natural theology. The last point is drawn out at great length in other parts of scripture, and we further te, that if we would formulate our theology faultlessly we must follow the Word of God. It is found also that when we have written our natural theology we have also written a satisfactory exposition on the record of creation. In this theses on natural theology we endeavor to follow the sequence of thought as given by inspiration because of its comprehensiveness, and also for the purpose of bringing into review the relation that exists between the creations and the record of them given by inspiration. Endeavoring if possible to remove some difficulties that have been in the way of a correct understanding of the theology as we think it.
