“For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.” – Colossians 1:16-17

When we think of the things The Lord created, nature’s fixed laws and principles are among them. This, of course, includes the areas of math and science.
