In the Bible it talks about the creation of the universe, of the angels, of our planet and all living creatures including us. Where does it tell us who created the creator? Who or What created God? Why did God choose the place he chose to create the universe? Where did God come from and how did he get here?

I know that in the Bible it does not say where God comes from but that does not mean that he was not created.It says that he was, is and always will be But it does not say God went poof out of thin air and there we go I think that with that in mind it is very possible that God may have been created although at no point in the Bible or the Scriptures I am familiar with (Most but not all by far) does it mention the creation of God (Although with all respect one of the earlier folks says that it does see above). As to where god comes from I am not sure as for why he chose here I would have to stick with the second gentleman and say "why not". There is so little we know about gods plans for us that I think we must first learn who God is and then ask where he comes from. But by time I understand who God is I think that I will be able to ask him myself where he came from.

Well, in the Gnostic scriptures, the Christian God was created. He was born from a goddess and he was sent to a place of darkness. He then thought that he was the only one in existance because he couldn't see his mother and the other deities. and declared himself God.

I am not familiar with this story and I would like to read it for myself would you be able to give me the location where you found that information? I think it is an interesting theory and would like to follow up on it with some research. Thanks in advance

My two cents worth is this (Okay so God's Word is priceless): I know in John 1:1 the Bible says "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." Now for those if you who know your Bible and you read further down the first chapter of God, and actually the first few chapters...it also says in there "The Word was made flesh and dwelt among us". So, actually I think that God was born of woman through his son Jesus. So, in essence I think God actually created himself because he had also created men and women. Interesting discussion this is. Note: I by no means live a perfect Christian life, but questions like this remind me of my faith.

Sometimes,I also feel very puzzled.Where does Jesus come from? And can he really know human's suffering?I have a series of problems in my mind.But I think there may be really have the other people in the other celestial body far away from the earth,and there are so many so many things we need to researh for.

I think the God has no creator. If God has a creator then that creator of God would get the title God. Why He chose this place? I do not know... but why not this place! I think even if He had chosen some other place one person would have asked " why this place and not that place"? So I am just happy that the place is this place. since GOD IS I think He did not come from somewhere to this place or from that point of time to this point of time.

Again, you beleive God was not created. That the entity just was. Interesting. Hard concept for some to grasp since all we see here that makes something exist is its creation, or its simply coming into existence like God. We see it hear it know it feel it, then it must exist. Even if we do not know for sure how it exist or why. However like you said this is a GREAT pLACE so God did choose well. Thank you for your thought provoking response.

you must not understand what god is. god is the ultimate. he was not created by anything or anyone. he existed when noone existed. he is the past, present, and the future.

I have read Some answers in a Book, The book is called "Monotheism", written by Muslim Thinkers, Yousif Karadawi, Elewah Mostafa and Ali Gamar, published by Ministry of Education of Qatar in 1968. In the third chapter, titled 'The Attributes of God', the authors, in their attempt to answer the question, "If God created every thing, then who created God?", summarized the answer given by one of the scholars, without acknowledging the source or the name of the scholar. Here is the answer of the unknown scholar. That scholar says that the question: who created God, is illogical, and to illustrate his point he gives two examples, the first is this; 'if you put one of your books on your desk, then you leave your room, then you return to your room after a while to find that the book you left on the desk is inside one of the drawers, then you know for certain that someone must have put the book in the drawer, for you know that the book by its nature does not move itself.' The second example is this: 'If you have with you in your room, another person, sitting on a chair, then you go outside your room and return to find that your visitor is sitting on the floor, you then do not ask about the cause of his movement, besides you do not believe that someone else was responsible for moving him, for you know that people by nature can move themselves, and there is no need for someone else to cause the moving.' And so it is with God, He is self existent and has no need of another to cause his existence, so the question is an illogical one. I Hope That Help, Have a great Day

I have thought this myself since I was a little kid. I once even asked this question to my minister, he just told me that Gog always was and that we are not to question it. If there is a beginning and end to everything then where did God come from?
