According to the theory of creation, everything that God created was a result of a command by word of mouth and it became existent meaning that His word can command things to be existent. Therefore, God used the creation through His word to allow man to try to get an insight about the nature of God meaning that His works speak for Him because of His invisible nature.

He says that this is because at the center of the schism is the issue of creationism.
