in GOD, i just want to know where he came from.
The second question is, is there a religion version of Monopoly? The reason i ask this question is because , when i was 7 or 8, i found a monopoly
card that said,"Get out of Hell". It scared me
Time is a concept of our existence. God exists outside of time. I suppose that even if God were to try to explain who and why He is, we would still
have a problem with it. For some like me, we know that God is because all things we see, hear, touch, and smell exist.
In another way to explain it is this. Let us say you had a dream when you sleep. That dream did not exist before you actually had it. It was in a
sense created. In a dream you can do things as you do in everyday life like talk to people etc. Now it sounds strange when you think that all this is
happening only in your brain. But while you dream you exist in a world created by mind energy alone. You don't realize it, but while you may be in
the dream, you are actually outside of the dream where the dream exists in it's entirety within your being alone. So what created the dream was not
physical but mental. We could say it was your soul, and soul is spiritual. And though made by thought alone, you are able to stand on ground held by
gravity. You can eat, laugh, run, build things, play, and all that, and all within a world created by your mind.
So we are a creation of God's will and mind. The Bible says that He created all things and that without Him was not anything made that was made. And
yet even though He made all things, He entered into the world and took the form of a Human among us. So while He was still outside of this world, yet
He was still in it. We call our reality when we are awake, "The real world", and a dream is but a "dream". God's real world is called "Heaven",
and this world to him is but a passing moment that will fade away just as dreams do fade away and we awake.
In the end, we understand that God is and always will be, and that we are created by Him for Him. God wants to bring us into His world, but that will
take a choice. Jesus came into the world so that He could take us out of the world before the time of all this existence ends. Yes, it does take faith
but it can be done. Put faith in God and ask Jesus to forgive you and save you, and He will, and when this dream is over, wherever Jesus is, there you
will be too.
