FAQ: Ok, if a Designer created
everything, who created the Designer? What existed before the creation of the universe?
The Bible tells us, "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth." Science now confirms
that time, space and matter had a beginning. The Law of Causation states that everything that has
a beginning has a cause. Since everyone now agrees that the universe had a beginning, everyone
should agree that the universe had a cause. However, many reject this argument for Divine causation,
because they say the same rationale should apply to the Designer that created the universe. They
reason, "if the Law of Causation requires that God created everything, then, based on that same Law,
who created God?"
Einstein's theory of general relativity, which is now widely accepted and supported by observable evidence,
established that time, space and matter all had a beginning and are all linked together. The dimension of
time itself began with the rest of the universe. If God created the entire universe, He created time and
the laws that apply to time. Therefore, He is not defined by or limited by the dimensions and laws He created.
If God is the cause of everything we see in the four dimensions of time and space, God, by definition, is
outside our four physical dimensions. The Bible tells us that God is the eternal, self-existing, uncreated
Creator of the universe. As the Creator of time, God is outside time. In fact, God transcends the past,
present and future all at once. Therefore, God had no beginning in time (as we see it), and God didn't need
a cause (as we understand it).
