If God exists, then wouldn’t he be constantly creating? Wouldn’t there have to be an initial creation that proved his existence?

Full Question

If with God there is no beginning and no end, and if God is love, then he must be in constant creation. If this is true, there would be universes from here to infinity. There has to be a first creation, a first universe. If that is correct, then how can God exist?

Answer

That God decided to create time and to create something first in time in no way disproves his existence. You seem to indicate that because God has no limits, he must constantly be creating something. If that were so, then he would be limited to having to be creating. He would not have the freedom not to create. God has total freedom. Nothing says that he has to be constantly creating things. He exists outside of time. You write as if he operates in the world of time that we know, but he exists in an eternal now.

    I would also say that God creates everyday. He creates the beautiful sunrises and sunsets, the starry nights, the babies being born, he also gives you life daily. Each day is a blessing.

    The whole concept of the question, just makes it all the clearer, that we know so little about our heavenly Father and creator, and about the eternity that is all around us. None of us have travelled any further than the closest planets to our earth, and even with the incredible telescopes that man has today, we have not touched on what is beyond what we can see, or detect with these devices. Man’s knowledge is folly to the angels, a well known saying, and doesn’t this question just prove that? God is always creating, not just outside of our sight but also in our lives and the lives of everyone, new discoveries are found all the time and we presume that they have always been there, just not discovered, but, not necessarily so, If you believe, truly believe,that there is no limit to God’s creative thought. It is when we doubt that we limit what we imagine he is capable of, not what he is really capable of.

    I’m paraphrasing here… God is complete prior to creation. Always was, always is and always will be. God was not completed or fulfilled in any way through the creation of the universe and all it contains. His creating us is an act of love and charity. When we are charitable, we emulate God.

    Truly indeed God is everywhere, God create everything, seen and not seen by human eyes he is omnipotent.but God loves a human heart that he has created most, to love one another, the greatest of all is Love he has created to humanity. GOD is LOVE..
