Who Made God?
Who made God? Where did God come from? This question are asked by many Christians and non-believers alike. Everything had to be made by something and had a starting point in time, right? It’s very hard for us to wrap our heads around something or someone that was not created.
We have been taught all our lives of this logical fact. The largest object in our human knowledge, the universe, came into existence at one point in time from the big bang or cosmological singularity. Who made that? Who pulled the trigger?
The universe could not pop into existence from nothing. Nothing can. When have you ever seen something pop into existence without explanation?
Everything in this universe had a starting point no matter how large or small. Some objects came into being at the Big Bang, but many things started sometime after.
Who made all this stuff?
Stuff like gravity, planets, stars, galaxies, and atoms. Its ingrained into our brains that everything has been made or designed by someone or something.
If God created everything who created God?
Dr. William Lane Craig (one of the top analytic philosophers and Christian theologian) said it best: “God is the only self-existent source of everything other than Himself”
In other words, a timeless, immaterial, eternal being cannot have a cause. Nothing could bring into existence a being into reality who transcends space and time.
How could something be made inside of our universe that made the universe itself? That makes no sense. It would have to be a being outside of our universe that made it in the first place. Something powerful enough and smart enough to create something of this magnitude and complexity.
Everything that begins to exist has a cause.
Something could not come into being out of nothing. If something is eternal and timeless it does not need a cause.
Think of it this way: where did the sun get its light? The sun is its own source of light. Same way with God. He is His own source of life.
When atheists think they have Christians on the run when they ask who made God, it really exposes their ignorance on who God is.
The simple answer to who made or created God would be God is not caused but self-existent.
The best part of all this is that this Christian God who is the uncaused cause desires the perfect relationship with me and you!
“Father… you loved me before the foundations of the world.” John 17:24
“When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set into place, what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him?” Psalm 8:3-4
