Where did God come from? Did God have a father and mother? My mommy said I ought to ask you, because you'd know the answer.


Thank you for your question–and I hope you will always want to know more about God. God loves you and wants to help you and be your friend every day of your life.

God had no beginning (just as He will have no end); He has always existed, and He always will. (That’s why He had no father or mother.) I know that’s hard for us to understand, because everything we see around us had a beginning. Even the universe–the stars, the galaxies, even the atoms you can’t see that make up everything in the world–all had a beginning. But God had no beginning. The Bible says, “The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth” (Isaiah 40:28).

And God also never changes or grows old. Have you ever noticed how everything around you changes? People and animals change and grow old; trees grow up and die; even rocks eventually weather and disintegrate. But God never changes; as the Bible says, “I the Lord do not change” (Malachi 3:6). This is one reason why you can depend on Him, because He’ll never change His mind or go back on His promises.

But the most important truth I can tell you about God is that He loves you, and He wants you to know Him and be His friend. How do I know this? I know it because God sent His only Son, Jesus Christ, into the world to show us His love. And right now Jesus wants to come into your life and make you part of His family forever. Ask Him to come into your heart today–and He will.

    This question came to me from a friend who is not a believer. I know that as a Christian we have a responsibility to explain and help others to understand the love of God and how he gave his son to us. This explanation is excellent and I will print it and keep it with me in case I am ever asked again. Thank you so much!

    If god has always been there, what about when the atheists state that the earth has always been here and you simply say that is not true? If god has always been there then I could easily say that the earth has always been here.

    I love god. please pray for me and my son and my daughters to serve god forever, no matter what happens in life.

    My God is the God of the Bible. He is not effected by time, space or matter. God has to be outside of these three things. How else could he create them. In the beginning he created time ( beginning ) Space (heaven ) Matter ( earth ). God who created the Universe is not within it nor was God effected by it. If limited by time, he can’t be God. He is not within time, he is outside of time. Billy Grahams explanation is right on.

    Hmm it’s kind of hard to understand for me. you mentioned the god sent his only son, Jesus Christ, into the world. So why Christian people believe Jesus is the god?
    And some people believe Jesus is the god because he made a miracle, then why Yahweh is not a god? He did as great thing as Jesus did.

      Because there are 3 in one God, jesus and the Holy Spirit. We pray to God through his son and the Holy Spirit lives inside of us. Jesus was sent to forgive our sins and to bring us home one day
