Connor’s Question

by Kathryn

Hello there,

Connor was in the car when he posed the question:
Who made God? Over to you then…
A good question from an inquisitive mind of an eight year old, so I tried my best to answer from my heart:
I told him that God started all creation and was everywhere like the air we breathe. We may not be able to see God or hear God but God is like the oxygen in our lungs he is available to us all.
This question was reflected upon at cell, Dad (Ian) was unsure how to answer it and I am aware of the spirit/person debate so over to you my learned friends for your input, how would you answer, so that Connor may be given as full an explanation to his question as possible?
Many thanks,
Kathryn (Mum)

    the Bible tels us that God calls himself “I Am”.which means he has always existed and nobody made him.
    This is very hard for us to understand because we were made and so was everything around us.
    There is nothing except God that has always existed
    It is good that we know we were made by God because it means we belong to him and we can speak with him and he helps us all the time
    He gave us the Bible so we could learn more about him. It is like an instruction book that you get when you buy something like a TV or a computer

    It tells us how to use it properly and what to do when things go wrong

    I hope this helps you but it is a very hard thing to understand

    Why don’t you ask God about it?

    Who made God IS a good question from an enquiring mind.
    Unfortunately it’s a question akin to asking – what colour is the equator? ‘Colour’ and ‘equator’ are not compatable concepts and therefore there is no answer.
    Similarly, ‘God’ and ‘time’ are not entirely compatable concepts, and therefore there is no real answer to the question. HOWEVER, a ‘possible’ appraoch would be to explore the concept of ‘eternity’ and try to explain that there is ‘not a time before God’, there is no time to which we can go ‘back’ when God was not there.

    I suspect this wont help Connor much. Heh, trying to get one’s head around the concept of ‘eternity’ gives me a headache! But I am reassured that God always was, is & is to come, from eternity past to eternity future.
