"Who created God?"

9/27/12   David    61
"In the beginning, God created..."   The first five words of Genesis are extremely profound.  In the beginning, before anything was created, God already existed.  Forever.  God could only do this if He were the Creator and not the creation.  If someone created God, that someone or something would have proceeded God and would by definition be the true God - the original Creator.  But in just five profound words, the Bible says that God has always existed outside of His Creation.  I told this to David, 61, who was out enjoying the sun and the breeze and the rest of creation at a park bench today.  David said he believes in God - "But I still have some doubts"  His question - "Who created God?" was among other questions on his mind,  like "Who did Adam's sons marry?"  "Didn't people just write the Bible?"  :What about evolution" and "Why are there so many different beliefs about God?"  These were questions I typically hear from skeptics, but there was one difference.  Skeptics are looking for a reason not to believe, because to believe in God also means one believes in a higher power that we will be held accountable to.  They want excuses not to believe. "This is why scientists come to conclusions about the evidence that are so far from what the Bible teaches." I told David.  "They rule out God's existence before they even begin, and then try to interpret everything God has created and wonder why it doesn't make sense.  Their only alternative is to believe in random chance and billions of years."   David, on the other hand, wants to believe but had some doubts as the arguments of a skeptical world have taken their toll on his faith.  We worked through his doubts about God's existence, and now he is thinking more about the possibility that "God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son..."  Words even more profound than the first five words of Genesis...
