Another thread I was reading got me thinking about this.
I am in no way trying to bash Christians, Im just wanting to know what your thoughts are about this.
Before God created the heavens and earth, what was he doing? Was he alone in a vast nothingness? If he created everything who or what created him? is
there a race of gods? Do they all have their own planets that they watch over? Just what was he doing? What was before god?
Im sure I will get the "he was in heaven with the angels" response, but Im wondering what was before that. If he created everything (heaven and
angels included), What was he up to before all that?
God is the ultimate realtity.
What we perceive as OUR reality is simply a projection of the ultimate reality, i.e God.
Asking what our maker did before the beginning (of our universe) is like being a clay pot and wondering what the potter was doing before he made his
first batch of clay pots.
Also, when it is said "In the beginning....", that is merely a reference to OUR beginning because of our perception of linear time.
God actually has no "beginning", so technically, that means there is is no "before" the beginning. No beginning, no before. It is one of the
mysteries of heaven that man is truly incapable of fathoming while in this dimension.
This physical dimension in which we experience in the flesh of our body, is defined by time.
Our spiritual dimension in which we will experience in the substance of our essence (or soul, or spiritual body, etc.--whatever you want to refer to
it as), is defined by eternity.
Having said all that, what I'm basically saying is what I already previously said: "No beginning, no before."
Now, having said that, I have pondered this very same question on many nights when I can't fall asleep or when driving, or anytime I am doing
something mundane and my mind begins to wander among miscellaneous unanswerable questions. Something I'm fairly sure we all do, or have done.
Regardless, the question remains unanswered in my mind, thus always available for me to ponder again when I find myself in mind-wandering
