"Who made God?"
To one who examines the
evidence, there can be no doubt that God exists. Every
building has a builder. Everything made has a maker.
The fact of the existence of the Creator is axiomatic
(self-evident). That’s why the Bible says, "The
fool has said in his heart, ‘There is no God’"
(Psalm 14:1). The professing atheist denies the common
sense given to him by God, and defends his belief by
thinking that the question "Who made God?"
can’t be answered. This, he thinks, gives him
license to deny the existence of God.
The question of who made
God can be answered by simply looking at space and asking,
"Does space have an end?" Obviously, it doesn’t.
If there is a brick wall with "The End" written
on it, the question arises, "What is behind the
brick wall?" Strain the mind though it may, we
have to believe (have faith) that space has no beginning
and no end. The same applies with God. He has no beginning
and no end. He is eternal.
The Bible also informs us
that time is a dimension that God created, into which
man was subjected. It even tells us that one day time
will no longer exist. That will be called "eternity."
God Himself dwells outside of the dimension He created
(2 Timothy 1:9, Titus 1:2). He dwells in eternity and
is not subject to time. God spoke history before it
came into being. He can move through time as a man flips
through a history book.
Because we live in the
dimension of time, logic and reason demand that everything
must have a beginning and an end. We can understand
the concept of God’s eternal nature the same way
we understand the concept of space having no beginning
and end—by faith. We simply have to believe they
are so, even though such thoughts put a strain on our
distinctly insufficient cerebrums.
