WHAT IF GOD WERE NOT ETERNAL?

 

            God is an eternal being without beginning and without end.  The human mind has trouble grappling with the concept of eternity, as we are finite beings who can only relate with that which has a beginning and an end. Yet, the eternity of God is a fundamental tenet of the Judeo-Christian faiths, and all believers believe in faith that God is eternal.

            What if God were not eternal? What if God did have a beginning?

The obvious implication of this hypothetical idea would be that, if He had a beginning, He had to have been created. If so, another Creator, or multiple creators, would have preceded Him. Thus, throughout eternity, an endless multitude of creators would have existed, and we would have had no idea as to who the first father god really was. If there was a first Father God, then He had no beginning and, thus, He would be the Supreme Being.

            A created god being implies finite qualities. It is difficult to conceive of infinitely great characteristics in a being that had a beginning. Eternity, on the other hand, implies infinite qualities. The greatness of God becomes totally grand, when framed by a context of eternity. Only an eternal Being can be infinitely wise, infinitely powerful, infinitely knowledgeable, etc.

                 Fortunately, this problem does not exist for us Christians, as the one-and-only God Himself addresses it: “I am He, I am the first, I also am the last”(Isaiah 48:12). In other words, there is no other God, and He, and only He, has been God forever: “Beside me there is no other” (Isaiah 44:6).

            Our great God has been forever and will be forever and ever. Unlike the gods of many religions of the past, the Christian God is not a created being. There are no multitudes of gods, making it impossible to know whom the Universal Ruler truly is. The true God is one and eternal. He is totally wise, totally powerful and totally glorious, and He alone is worthy of awe and worship.   He “inhabits eternity” (Isaiah 57:15), and he invites us, the created, to join him forever.
