If God exists, then wouldn't he be constantly creating? Wouldn't there have to be an initial creation that proved his existence?


Full Question

If with God there is no beginning and no end, and if God is love, then he must be in constant creation. If this is true, there would be universes from here to infinity. There has to be a first creation, a first universe. If that is correct, then how can God exist?

Answer

That God decided to create time and to create something first in time in no way disproves his existence. You seem to indicate that because God has no limits, he must constantly be creating something. If that were so, then he would be limited to having to be creating. He would not have the freedom not to create. God has total freedom. Nothing says that he has to be constantly creating things. He exists outside of time. You write as if he operates in the world of time that we know, but he exists in an eternal now.
