Teleology is the philosophical position that the universe and everything in it has a cause and a purpose.  It is the study of final causes or results--having a definite purpose, goal, or design.  In Biblical teaching, our God has designed the world and everything in it.  However, it has been affected by sin and is not in its original condition.
