Who made God

A question from a thoughtful student last week

“Who made God ?”

Two answers are possible
1             ‘I don’t know’
2            ‘No one’

The first answer is an acknowledgement of our finite limitations.
The second is to accept the compass of the Bible.
The Bible speaks of God being eternal:
    “From everlasting to everlasting thou art God”    Psalm 90:2
In other words and in other places –‘ He always was, never being created, and always will be, never ending.  He is uncreated.’

Many thought for many years that the universe was eternal and infinite, but the introduction of the ‘big bang’ theory has shown that the Bible is right – the universe had a beginning and will have an end.
So we might well ask what is beyond the universe???  What was before the ‘big bang’????   Rather we should ask who was there, when the sun first shone?
The only Biblical, logical answer is God.

I recommend a book by Edgar Andrews  ‘Who made God’ from Koorong or Amazon

How big is God ?  Big enough to make the stars!
How smart is God?  Smart enough to write the DNA code
How knowledgeable is God?  He knows your thoughts!
How caring is God? He knows and cares about sparrows

Let us ponder his greatness often, but let us often consider His character.........Holy, Loving,  Just..........

Blind unbelief is sure to err, but faith that looks at facts leads to worship, thanksgiving and love.
