Where Did God Come From?

In short, if matter is not eternal, and it cannot create itself, then the only logical conclusion is that some thing or some One outside of nature (i.e., supernatural) caused the material Universe and everything in it. Christians call this Someone, “the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth” (Isaiah 40:28).

Where Did God Come From?

Where did God come from? Most everyone knows the Christians response to this question God is eternal he did not come from anywhere although atheist may think that this answer is unscientific and merely an attempt to avoid the question in truth observation and reason declare otherwise the question where did God come from or what cause God assumes that God had a cause however by definition an eternal spirit the everlasting God cannot logically have a cause asking about God’s cause is as incoherent as asking why matter is eternal matters not eternal matter is no more an eternal essence without a cause then God is a physical being with a cause asking where did God come from it’s like asking when did eternity start by definition eternity never began eternity is without beginning and in by definition so is God friends from what we observe in nature matter and energy are neither created nor destroyed scientists refer to this observed fact as the first law of thermodynamics evolutionist alleged that the universe began with the explosion of a ball of matter thirteen to fourteen billion years ago yet they’ve never provided a reasonable explanation for the cause of this supposed original ball of matter an attempt was made a few years ago in an issue of New Scientist magazine titled the beginning what triggered the Big Bang notice however what the evolutionist David shige’s stated in the last line of the article the quest to understand the origin of the universe seems destined to continue until we can answer a deeper question why is there anything at all instead of nothing the fact is a logical naturalistic explanation for the origin of the original ball of matter that supposedly led to the verse does not exist it cannot exist so long as the first law of thermodynamics is true that matter and energy cannot create themselves since the physical universe exists and yet it could not have created itself then the universe is either eternal or something or someone outside of the universe must have created it relatively few scientists proposed that the universe is eternal in fact there would be no point in attempting to explain the beginning of the universe with a big bang for example if scientists believe it’s always existed what’s more the second law of thermodynamics which states that matter and energy become less usable over time has led scientists to conclude that the universe has not always existed that is it’s not eternal so I don’t the laws of thermodynamics or the law of causality apply to God because these scientific laws like all scientific laws apply to what we find and study in nature and again by definition God is not natural and thus is logically not subject to the laws of nature if matter is not eternal and it cannot create itself then the only logical conclusion is that something or someone outside of nature who is supernatural cause the material universe and everything in it Christians call this someone the eternal God because he is from everlasting to everlasting you
