Who Created God? Where Did God Come From?

A lot of skeptics like to ask this question. It is an interesting one and has an easy, albeit interesting, answer.

So the question is: If God created the universe, then who created God?

The answer: No one created God! God was not created. God has always existed. He is eternal.

Revelation 1:8 “I am the Alpha and the Omega—the beginning and the end,” says the Lord God. “I am the one who is, who always was, and who is still to come—the Almighty One.”

God - by very definition of his Being - cannot be created. The question is invalid. If God had to be created, he would cease to be.......well......God.

Let's think about it further though. Let's pretend, for the sake of argument, that God was created. This means a Higher Intelligence and a Higher Power had to create Him. Therefore, there exists a bigger "GOD" than God. But, if there is a "GOD" who created the Biblical God, that still leaves us asking, "Who created that "GOD?". See how ridiculous this is?

It also means there are multiple Gods which also violates Scripture.

Romans 3:30 There is only one God, and he makes people right with himself only by faith, whether they are Jews or Gentiles.

Who Created God? An Insufficient Answer.

To my mind, however, saying that God is eternal is not a sufficient answer. Not because it is a bad answer, but because in my limited human understanding, I simply cannot comprehend eternity. I can understand eternity as a principle, but I cannot wrap my mind around it.

It's kind of like talking about the size of the sun. We can say the sun is 865,000 miles in diameter and ponder that number, but we cannot really wrap our minds around anything that big! I think it's safe to say, the same idea applies to our understanding of eternity. We can say God is eternal all day long......but do we, as limited humans, really comprehend that?

In summary: The question of 'Who created God' is invalid because God cannot be created. If God had to be created, He would - by definition - cease to be God!

      The Alpha and Amega means beginning and end , but would be referred to God's Son for he was created as the first angelic son also known earthly as Jesus.

      The Father has always been with no beginning he is called the ancient of days

      And he is eternity.

      The best way to understand this is a perfect circle can the beginning or the end

      Be definned No , it just exist.

      The definition of "God" is the creator not the creation. A simple dictionary check will clear that up. The God definition is the only one which states that He had no begining. All scientific theories start with basic definitions and premises. Atheists might not like logical definitions but they exist. Gandalf is a fictional character in a book but God's definition is "that which had no begining and has no end". Basic stuff really.
