Quote of the Week - Philo of Alexandria

"God, the begetter of all things, not only brought them into sight, but even made things which previously had no existence, being not merely an artificer but the Creator Himself."-- Philo of Alexandria, On Dreams 1.76

Here is another expression of Philo's view on creation:
“And besides all this, as the sun, when he arises, discovers hidden things, so also does God, who created all things, not only bring them all to light, but he has even created what before had no existence, not being only their maker, but also their founder.”

Human beings need to keep in mind that everything they have comes to them from God.
