An inconceivable thought

April 15, 2018

  nothing2 I am not totally satisfied with what I am about to post because I believe it is incomplete, but I pray to God that it is sufficient and gets across the point I am trying to make.

  It is perhaps the most inconceivable of thoughts when you ponder the idea that an unseen and invisible God created the universe and everything in it until you ponder the alternative; that the universe created itself and everything in it out of nothing, by mistake, and with no motive or will.

  There are only three alternatives: Either God always existed and He created the universe; matter always existed and created the universe by chance; or nothing existed and somehow came into being on its own and evolved into what we are today.

  The third alternative is nonsensical and illogical and should be dismissed without debate, something cannot come from nothing, which leaves us to ponder the two remaining alternatives.

 It is hard to grasp the concept that God has always existed, that before there was something there was someone, which is why I call this idea inconceivable. But what is the alternative? This is where the paradox of evolutionist thinking comes into play because evolutionists either believe matter always existed or that it was created out of nothing on its own. We have already dismissed the idea that something can come from nothing so we will move on, other than to say that those who hold to this illogical belief do not want to consider the alternative.

  It is as equally inconceivable to think that matter always existed as it is to think God always existed, and in fact I believe it is more conceivable to think God always existed than it is to believe matter always existed.

  If the evolutionists believe matter could have always existed it negates the argument against the idea that God could always have existed, but the evolutionists do not WANT to believe in God so they either miss this paradox or ignore the possibility. If God cannot always have existed than matter must follow the same rule. 

  Something must have always existed, why not God? In fact God seems to be the only logical conclusion a person can draw. In order for something to be created there has to be a motive for the creation–an idea–and there has to be a will to create it. Matter had no will and it had no motive which means there was something in existence before matter and that was God.

    Who said G-d was made of matter? The very nature of G-d is indefinable in human terms. G-d exists, beyond that, the nature of G-d is unknowable.

    I always figured that G-d pulled the trigger and created the Big Bang, created matter, created everything, put everything into motion. I don’t have any problem reconciling G-d as the Creator of the Universe with evolution. You might say that evolution is G-d’s plan being carried out.

    Could you imagine such an orderly universe as we have, without G-d?

    Men may differ, misinterpret, misunderstand or just plain screw up, but none of that changes G-d. In the end, we will each answer to G-d as G-d has spoken to us.

      Well said Dr. Jeff. I also have reconciled the idea of the big bang with God. We do not know how He created the universe, we only know that He did.

        Which goes with Gen 1:3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
        The sun and moon, star etc wasn’t until later.
        To an observed in the darkness, I guess it could seem as a ‘big bang or burst of energy’, but who was there to witness it?

    Interesting thought Steve ~ of course, you knew I’d think so 😊
    Brings to mind the story of the arrowhead. When a person finds an arrowhead they know someone made it. That it required ‘thought, skill, time and effort’ to form it from the source rock. If someone questions them, “How do you ‘know’ someone made it and it didn’t just ‘become’ naturally?”
    The person would look at them, “You’re kidding right? How can you not ‘see’ someone made it.”
    I tried to to the story online but can’t presently, but you get the point.
    You forgot to add ‘aliens’. But then one can ask, “Where did they come from?”
    Our “finite” mind has trouble thinking of an “infinite Eternity” being limited to this present existence.

      I like the analogy of the arrowhead! Nobody would question there was a creator of the arrowhead because it would be silly but we are dealing with the same thing here but only on a much larger scale and people do not want to think about it because they are afraid of the answer.

        Yes. I’ll try and find it. It seems that things use to be easier to find via search engines, but not ‘now’. I looked for a posting that should’ve been an ‘easy find’, ended up needing the ‘exact’ title – the new Deep💩👺 State Cabal AI “monitoring” opoeningly presents only what it ‘deems’ we should ‘see’ and ‘know’.
        Just as the LORD set everything into motion or stableness, so is the enemy of our souls and the hater of God, using technology, humans and fallen spirits to achieve his🐍 “inconceivable” goal ~
        Isaiah 14:13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: (14) I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.

        I do believe Google and other search engines are filtering what they think we should see, taking a cue from Facebook. Or maybe Facebook took its cue from them.
        I believe in another comment you mentioned how the devil had to use man’s technology because he is not on the same level as God and that is happening. An interesting Isaiah quote, the idea of man being like God goes all the way back to the Garden of Eden and still nothing has changed in the hearts of men.

    As a believer, I am biased. But, IF there is a God, then there are no limits on what God can do, or God can be. Our human mind is the limiting factor regarding God.
    Matter on the other hand DOES have limits, and we believe (rightly) that matter follows certain “laws”. We may not know them all, or understand them, but we are learning pretty fast, and so far Einstein and Newton did pretty good.
    Between God and matter, I will side with God.
