Does god have a beginning?
No. God is the Alpha and Omega; the First and the Last.
If god is infinitely old then why can't the same logic apply to the universe?
The Bible says that God created the heavens and the earth.
Here's how I see it based on the scriptures I'm going to post.
God is the Alpha and Omega and the Provider of all things. Jesus is the Word and the Creator. The Holy Spirit puts it into motion, organizes it and
gives it life.
1 John 5:7
7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.
1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.
8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.
9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and
6 By the word of the Lord were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.
Energy can neither be created nor destroyed, the universe is nothing BUT energy, so why is it so hard to believe?
God will cause the current heaven and the current earth to pass away and create a new one.
2 Peter 3:10 & 13
10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt
with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
