If you leave out "at all times" I agree.
You wanted to explore "other theological approaches." My question is then,
reformulated: What kind of approaches? "Times" in connection with
"creation" may be getting you in difficulties, since the "times" are in
God's hands, and "time"is created, is part of the creation we live in. It
contrasts with "eternity" (is not extended time, but something we do not know.)
