  1. God’s Word creates from nothing. (Gen 1:1)
  2. God’s Word gives life. (Gen1:20-22)
  3. God’s Word defines what is good. (Gen1:31)
  4. God’s Word is the object of Satans attack. (Gen 3:1-5)
  5. God’s Word is what man rejects. (Gen 3:6-7))
  6. God’s Word brings forth curses. (Gen3:14-19)
  7. God’s Word is given in hard tablet form. (Exodus 20:1-17)
