Who Created God?

Taking A Byte Out Of Lies

Who Created GOD?

If something comes into being, it must have been prompted by something else. A book has an author. Music has a music artist. A party has a party-thrower! All things that begin, that have a start, have a cause to their beginning.

Consider the universe. Scientists once held to the "steady-state" theory, that the universe has always existed without beginning.

Cosmological evidence now refers to the "Big bang" as the point in time that the universe came into being. Our space-time-matter-energy universe had a distinct and singular beginning.

Since it did not always exist, but came into existence (had a singular beginning), then some other reality must have caused or created it.

Everything we observe in nature has a beginning. God however is in a different category, and must be so. God is different from all nature and humanity and everything that exists, in that he has always existed, independent from anything he created. God is not a dependent being, but self-sufficient, self-existent. And this is exactly how the Bible describes God, and how God has revealed himself to be. Why must God be this way?

Our universe cannot be explained any other way. It could not have created itself. It has not always existed. And it could not be created by something that itself is created. Why not?

Something cannot be created from nothing. We are created. God is not created. He exists. He's an infinite Being. A concept difficult for us creatures to accept. Everybody agrees, we are created. Whether by evolution or creation, we are still creatures. But God is not a creature. He is a Being. This also agrees with His description of Himself in the bible. Example, He said His name is "I Am", as in, He exists. And "I am the Alpha and the Omega" The beginning and the end.

If you say, "there is no evidence for the existence of God," do you have evidence for His non-existence? Let's face it. Although we feel empowered to make bold statements about things outside our realm as creatures, we're still like a chick inside an egg making confident declarations about the world outside that we don't know anything about. Why take a risk on possibly being wrong?!
