It is difficult to imagine the universe not having some form of a creator. Something to set all things in motion. Some say it is the big bang, but even then the matter had to come together from somewhere. Equally as difficult for my head to get around is that what was before God. It is our nature to always look for what begat what. If God is now, what was that created God... It is human to not understand how all things work as we see life as linear...beginning and end and thus we have time. If God is outside of Time, he could be encompassing the beginning and the end at a present state. So when someone says we die and go to heaven for an eternity, we think eternity as a literal beginning and an end. In a timeless state, if soul & mind stay intact, we will be capable of having time. A thought creates time. Speech creates time. In a timeless state, I can snap my fingers and it can be measured. It is hard to understand that God exists outside the parameter of what we can understand. Does it make it less true? More true? I don't know. Some say God created Sin and so he is a malecious (sp) God. Is it possible for God to be certain things and everything outside of his being is something else. If God says, I am Love, everything outside of Love is outside of the nature of God. If I put a fence around my yard and say everything inside this fence is mine, it doesn't matter how many other fences are put up and what goes on outside of that fence as it doesn't pertain to what I have valued to myself or my own. So religion creates fences and some have placed their fences in part of Gods yard and the rest of the fence in their own yard and try to say, God is inside my fence, come find him here, even though reality says, they may have their fence overlapping Gods shrub garden, but they sure don't have it around his sauna or rose garden. Don't know if that makes sense or not. Discuss.
