Whether you are a religious person or not, it is likely at some point in your life you pondered the existence of God. Many people believe that God created the entire Universe and this leads to a common question… who created God?
This question has been posed for centuries and one answer recently used by Atheist camps as a “logical” argument to disprove the existence of God, goes something like this: We know all things have a “cause” therefore God must need a “cause”, and if God needs a cause, he is not really god at all.
Do you see how this circular reasoning gets you into a game of mental gymnastics rather quickly? Let’s look at it from another angle: Most philosophers and scientists will agree that from nothing, nothing comes (at least as far as we have been able to observe it). Therefore if there was ever a time when literally “Nothing” existed, then I wouldn’t be here typing about it right now, in other words NOTHING would exist.
However, let us imagine for a moment a box. This box represents EVERYTHING we know to “exist” which includes all of space, time, matter and energy in the Universe. It is all represented by the box and its contents. God exists “outside” of the box. He is not part of the universe, he created it. He is not affected by time, in fact he can see all the way from the beginning to the end of time as WE measure it, inside of our box.
So the answer to the question Who Created God? Is simply: NOTHING created God. How do we know this? We have a direct revelation from God to mankind in the form of Holy Scripture. Within the pages of the Living Word God quite clearly proclaims that he alone created all that there is, and there are no other Gods (Isaiah 43:10).
He is eternal with no beginning and no end, he just always WAS, IS and WILL BE. Now as a human living on planet Earth, this microscopic speck of dust in the cosmos, it is quite difficult to put our minds around the concept of something always existing. Much like it is nearly impossible to fathom what an eternity will feel like.
But as a believer in Jesus Christ and Holy Scripture, once you put your complete faith in the first 10 words of the Bible “In the beginning God created the Heavens and the Earth”, then all other miracles are so small, that they are barely noticeable. Think about that long and hard, God uttered words from his breath, and the entire universe was created from nothing but His power. This is a God with power beyond our imagination, and there is no other (Deuteronomy 4:35).
