제1장 창조원리

인간은 오랜 역사기간을 두고 인생우주에 관한 근본문제를 해결하기 위하여 고민하여 왔다. 그러나 아직까지 아무도 이 문제에 대하여 석연(釋然)한 대답을 해 준 사람이 없었으니, 그것은 본래 인간이나 우주어떻게 창조되었는가 하는 구극(究極)의 원리를 알지 못하였기 때문이다. 나아가 우리에게는 보다 더 근본선결문제(先決問題)가 남아 있다. 그것은 결과적인 존재에 관한 것이 아니라, 원인적인 존재에 관한 문제인 것이다. 그러므로 인생우주에 관한 문제결국 그것을 창조하신 하나님이 어떠한 분으로 계시는가 하는 것을 모르고서는 풀리지 않는 것이다. 창조원리(創造原理)는 이러한 근본적인 문제들을 광범하게 다루고 있다.

This is because no one has understood the root principle by which humanity and the universe were originally created. To approach this topic properly, it is not enough to examine resultant reality. The fundamental question is that of the causal reality. Problems concerning human life and the universe cannot be solved without first understanding the nature of God. This chapter deals extensively with these questions.
