I use to ask myself "if god created us and our earth? Who created him?" I've frustrated a lot of ministers (not meaning to) but I wanted to know! Still, I've never received an appropriate answer that satifies me. Nothing of it made sense to me.. how could God just say some words then bang! there we have earth, light and air? I've found peace within myself now and learned to accept this unanswered question now but it still crosses my mind occationally.

That is something about religion I have never been able to wrap my head around. We are just supposed to accept that from the very beginning there was God. No one made him. He was just here and it is because of him that we have the world and everything on it. Could never wrap my head around it in catholic school and still can't to this day 20 years later.

When I was in high school, my science teacher told me that religion and science do not agree (meet standards) wow was she right! I'm not knocking religion byfar but was it scientific reason's we're here? or God? hmmm I guess we'll never know until maybe our time is up?

I'm not sure about that, but I'm sure in one thing, He is not me :D We didn't created Him. We just named Him. Without us He is not God. Btw, GOD is Generator, Operator and (benevolent) Destroyer.

We did not name God. God told us his name (according to both the Bible and the Quran.

Yes. That's way He has different names: God, Allah, Yahwe, Brahma. Different religions give Him different names.

That is indeed a question to ponder on. Then again, it only continues if you do think that someone higher created the Almighty Being that we mostly refer as "God"

Your welcome. I've also had an inquiry before. They say that God is so perfect since He was able to create everything that man had and will discover. He already made a perfect world, right? Why did he create mankind that had shortcomings and eventually destroy His creations? With God alone, He could just replace a deteriorating creation if He wanted to, right? Then as stories would relate, "He suddenly got lonely, he created a being that had his image and likeness..?" Would you look at that, if God was Perfect, why did He get lonely? Those kinds of stuff that linger in my mind..

Oh forsure! I've never wondered about that but I have wondered why God takes babies, and good people from the world, why does he need them back? I believe the world needs those good people more.

That's a very interesting question! I have never pondered it though, but now that you have brought it up, who did create God? I have always thought of God, as just always being there, but what made him "Be" ??

It is very interesting and it's hard to understand when there's no blueprint laying in front of us isn't it? I brought this up with another mylotter, and I thought it was just like the saying what came first the chicken or the egg? It's so mysterious to me, and I"m not a fan of the unknown, but at the same time it's intriging:) thanks for your responce

An appropriate answer (for you) might not come until you understand and accept that God is "Sovereign". There is no other power, but God..... No one created Him. To understand how He could 'just say some words then bang.....' you will have to KNOW Him and understand His sovereign nature. God has existed since time began. So when did time begin? When God created it. Once again, you must understand the word as it applies to Him - - - Sovereign. It means, 'needing no other' - ' complete power'. For you to completely understand that 'complete power' you must receive the 'wisdom and knowledge' from Him, accepting who He is and who He said He is in complete, unshakable faith. To understand complete unshakable faith, you must study, to 'know Him', not 'know about Him'. While there might be questions like this enter your thought process, He is the only one who can answer them sufficiently. It's up to you to accept His explainantion. To do that, you must have a genuine desire to know all there is to know about Him. That's a lifelong study and one that is quite difficult if you are not prepared. With so many 'principalities' and forces doing what they can to lead you away from 'His Truth', it also takes a determined spirit to search for the answers one needs to find faith enough to believe in Him, against all odds. In summary, no one created Him. He didn't need creating. He said, 'I Am'. But to understand the 'I Am' means you have to again, get to KNOW Him. When you KNOW Him, you won't have to ask. He will not curse you for asking the questions. If I had a question such as this, I would ask Him to explain though, not some poor mortal..... Blessings on your quest.

Thank you for your thoughts about my question. Not only have a I asked leaders of religion types, I've asked God myself and still nothing. I wished I could hear what he had to say but I must have a deaf ear when he's talking. It's just like the wind, I know it's there but I can't see it. I do know he's there but can't see him, but I do believe. I am completely ready for getting to know him.

He is speaking to you daily. It's up to us to listen and react on what He is saying. If you believe you can't 'hear' Him, maybe you just aren't listening. I don't mean that in a bad way. We have to train ourselves to listen, just as we have to practice to react on His words. The answer to all of your questions is right before you. Trust me.

Great question; as we ponder the imponderable this question reminds me of a conversation I had with a mathematician about infinity. Now I am mathematically challenged, as well as religiously challenged and I struggle mightily with these concepts. The conversation lasted a little over an hour and ended when I developed a massive headache. I would like to report my mathematician friend explained infinity where I understood it, alas, infinity and beyond still escapes my conscious understanding. At the end of the day an admission I don't understand infinity and/or God may be the most honest/appropriate answer to "Who created God?"

Do you think God will curse me for asking this question? lol I hope not. I believe that there are a couple and maybe more things that can go on and on and the topics are: religion & numbers.Maybe that's why the scriptures are written in number?

It's kind of like the question "What came first, the chicken or the egg?" Here you can ask, were we here first and created God" but still, then who created us and everything in the universe. Maybe you would have to study all religions to help understand this. Aaaaaaack! Too much to think about LOL.

When I was a kid I did ask the same question. But as I grow older and I see things differently. Now, at time we do believe in things that we don't see but yet we believe. Therefore, we believe in GOD the same way. We don't need to know we created GOD, for he is GOD. I put it this way, if someone or something created GOD then God is not the greatest and there will be something of higher position than GOD. That's mean, that higher position should be GOD and not GOD. Do I confused you? Don't be, just believe in the true GOD.

It's not that you confuse me, it's the understanding of religion and how we got here that confuses me. I use to ask people, if god created us? Who created him, and if another person created him? Who created that guy and the question just never rested. There had to be someone first but it just didn't make that much sense to me at all. I've come to accept it when I hit my early 20s. It's just like the wind, I don't see it but I can feel it, so I know it's there. I feel that way about God now. Thanks for your thoughts

I know it is a tough question to answer but not everything in the has the answer espcially about religion or God. To me God is not a being. It could be anything and nobody can describe what and how God looks like. Perhaps we will see God if only we read the bible and understand the interpreted meaning in the bible.

No one created God. God has always been, still is, and will always be. God has been here forever and no one created Him. He created everything else around us for Him and in the way He imagined everything should be. We screwed that up of course, but He is, was, and is to come. God is awesome in so many ways and we should praise Him daily for His blessings and His love that He has for His children. God bless

I am not christian so I do not know if this will answer your question but according to my religion (the Baha'i Faith) as I understand the teachings (please note this is my interpretations of the teachings and not necessarily correct.) God is not a being. God is more of an energy source that is beyond our understanding while we are on earth because our spirits are limited by our physical bodies. God was not created because energy can never be created or destroyed (Newton's Second Law). Energy always exists and always will. The form of energy changes, sometimes energy is in the form of heat, other times it is work done by your muscles, ect. Likewise God appears in different forms (Zoroaster, Krishna, Budda, Jesus, Muhammad, Baha'u'llah, ect.) Creation (such as ourselves) and miracles are also forms of God. Anyway, I believe the reason for your confusion is because you are looking at the problem from the wrong angle. I would recommend seeing "What the bleep do we know?" for more explanation. It a movie created by physists that defines God. I found it very interesting as it explained a lot about the nature of God as proven by science which as a scientist myself I appreciated. Some of the concepts went over my head but it is still cool that scientists have proven the existence of God. :) Anyway I hope this helps!

God was not created. He IS. He is the first and the last; the beginning and the end; the Alpha and the Omega. He is the Eternal. You know this by faith. If you are looking for scientific proof, good luck. God did not go "bang" and there was earth...the reference to days in the Bible is not a 24 hour day. A course in Bible Study or study of whatever religion you are would help you.

Religion to me is like a really tough math class, when I don't understand something I get frustrated. I've asked many people about this, and still nothing.. I'm loving and very much appreciating all the responses and it also helps me understand a little better and thank you also for explaining that :)

I was raised a baptist and always wondered this I asked my dad once and he said No one God is God. But it just never settled right with me today I would say god is created by us, nature, the energy around everyone, and the whole universe, thats god and thats what creates him, just an opionin though

If someone created God, then that would mean God is not God, because this "someone" else would be greater than Him. But let me try an old rabbinical technique and try to answer your question with another question. Newton's first law of motion says that an object will stay at rest...unless acted upon by an external force. So what is this external force? And if you believe in the Big Bang theory for the origins of the universe, who or what caused this Big Bang to occur?

Sometimes, it is best to just be at peace of having unanswered question. Coz the big things you'll know, the harder it was to accept. People are not allowed to know things about who or what is God for people's understanding are so much limited comparing to "Him". Just imagine this, how many atoms does a molecule have? and how many molecule does a drop of water have? If our knowledge is as like as a single atom, then God's wisdom is as like as all the water in the sea. (,")

God has been there all the time.You just cannot define the eternity and God.You just cannot pinpoint the creation of God by a time.He is the Time and the entire universe and beyond.It is not that easy to comprehend God.At the most you can believe and feel Him.

WELL, MY dear, there are something in life that is just we cant just understand it is obscure. We jsut need to accept the fact about it. In the same way why not ask yourslef how air came bout, we dont see it but we can see it. That is how God is. I am not saying Gos is Air, but the misery behind the air is understanding of God. Pls, read your bible if you are chriatian well, ok. Dont waste your good time thinking of who created God for soemtime better. Live life to its fulness and do good. Remeber that we will give acount to all we do whatsover man sow he reaps. Have a good time.

Well I've pretty much have come to stop wondering so much about it, but like I said, it still crosses my mind sometimes. I believe.. I really do, but this question just pondered in my thoughts that's all :) I always thought about the wind theory as well.. We know we can't see it but we sure do feel it, so we know it's there and we definitly know who created that. The last time I read a bible was about a month ago.. there was one at work which disappeared mysteriously and to tell you the truth... I've never read before a book which was so deceitful, emotional and terrifying all in one. That book scarred me especually the Revalatons chapter. Wow! Thanks for your add and have a lovely day
