Questions are a normal part of our life. Every day we will ask and be asked. The
words who, what, why, when, how are all part of our vocabularies. Every day we
might ask Who had the TV remote last? What is for dinner? Why did you do that?
When will we be there? How much longer? Whether we realise it or not questions fill
so much of our minds and conversations from these basic everyday questions to the
big questions of life, of faith, of God. Perhaps you have questions you want to ask of
Christianity, of the Bible or maybe even of God or maybe as a Christian you’ve been
asked by non-Christians these big questions of the bible or Christianity or God. Well
over the next few weeks we are going to be looking at some of these big questions.
We will be uploading a short 5-minute video every Saturday night on the typconnect
Facebook page
and Trinity Presbyterian Youth Instagram account and publishing a
short blog each Monday looking at one of the big questions you might have.


On Saturday past we looked at our first question if God created the world then who
created God? Genesis 1:1 tells us ‘In the beginning God created the heavens and
the earth.’ Many of us know the account of creation, God created the heavens and
the earth, He created the world in six days but that raises the question well then who
created God. If God created us then surely something or someone must have come
before and created him. Well quite simply put God was not created. God is outside of
time and space as we know them. He is eternal, He has always been and always will
be.
Everything we know starts and finishes because they were created. If you sit down
some evening to watch a movie it starts with an opening scene and about 2 hours
later the credits tell us that it has finished. Perhaps you like a good TV series well it
starts with episode 1 and finishes with a finale. Lockdown started 2 months ago and
someday, sooner or later, it will finish. We were all born and one day we will take our
last breath on this earth. Everything we know starts and finishes because it was
created but not so with God. God has no beginning and no end. Psalm 90 verse 2
tells us God is from everlasting to everlasting. God is eternal and immortal.
Perhaps what has been said doesn’t really answer the question and maybe even
raises more questions but 1 Timothy chapter 6 verses 15b and 16 says; “God, the
blessed and only Ruler, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone is
immortal and who lives in unapproachable light, whom no one has seen or can
see. To him be honour and might forever. Amen.”
If we could fully understand and explain God well then, he wouldn’t be God, he
would be no greater than us but God is so much greater and mightier than we can or
will ever imagine. We cannot fully understand the wonders of God but we do know
He created the world, we know He is outside time and space, that He is eternal,
mighty, gracious, loving, the creator. We can’t understand and answer all the
questions we have but we can worship and praise and know this great and mighty
God who is King of Kings and Lord of Lords. In the beginning God created the
heavens and the earth and He created you in his image and He loves you and wants
you to know and worship Him. So, who created God, well God was not created, he
has no beginning and no end and we can’t answer all our questions that arise from
that but as the Psalmist writes in Psalm 145;
“Great is the LORD and most worthy of praise; his greatness no one can fathom.”
