How was god born

Report as

God was not born, God is the uncaused cause, he existed before all things, and always existed, he even existed before time, because he created time. so God was not born in that sense, as in, the original cause of his existence. however, Jesus Christ, who though human, was also God, was born of the Virgin Mary through the direct intervention of the Holy Spirit

Amen, but in my personal belief as a non-denominational christian, I believe that Jesus was simply the medium by which God could interact with the world of men. Jesus was the living word of God. Word also implicates a message. Jesus had divine purpose, but I believe that he is not God himself. Why would he pray to God then? It makes the most sense

Oh yes it does. Don't you get it? HE was the beginning of time. He might've been just energy.. Or nothing at first. But he created everything that happened. He made himself human so he could be with us. But no doubt about it if we saw his true form we would shatter, burn alive, and our insides would explode. We would be destroyed into nothing at all

That makes sense. Thank you.

Torcowish, please don't take offense..I am simply curious. What makes you think we would shatter and explode if someone saw god's true form? And what do you think that true form might be?
Report as
Lol you don't offend me at all. but one time i've actually heard a sermon from a priest about that... and ahh i've suspected, that if god was the beginning of time, he's very powerful right? now ok so " he TURNED himself human just so he could be with us," thats one of the few words in the bible that they say.... well if he couldn't be with us in his regular form... it's probably too harmful for us to see, or we would be destroyed. After all, he did create everything, but something as powerful as that... i mean.. doesn't that KINDA make sense?

Good question. It is my belief he was born in the imagination of human beings...

Imagination? Do you know how paradoxical the concept of the God is? It would have taken a large team of imagineers to create such a fascinating concept such as God. Think about this... How could people possibly imagine a being that existed BEFORE space-time? That implies that there are various levels of space-time that could go on infinitely. For a people to suggest such a concept thousands of years ago would be an amazing feat of human progress.
Report as
So basically because you underestimate the human imagination there must be a god? Uh, no.

Andy 310 is right. I always imagined that as a man sitting in a room with play dough. He made the first people and everything in the world. lol. kind of a strange scene to imagine.

He wasn't born. It's real hard to explain to people. Ok so you know the Big Bang theory? Well it's kinda like that.... There was nothing at the beginning of time and god appeared out of nothing! Just appeared. Just like that. And then he created EVERYTHINg. With nothing.

Right !!

God didn't appear. Appearance implies a specific date, and a date implies time. Appearance also implies location, and since there was no space there was no location. That is part of what makes God so fascinating

God is the beginning. He is before space-time which means that he is ageless and without beginning or end

I agree with your comment about Jesus not being the fullness of God. I don't know how some don't see it, or maybe they do, I'm not too sure. Jesus is Gods Word, he is Gods salvation. I do think he is a part of God, but not completely The Almighty. Good call.

Jesus always existed as God the Son-but He was conceived by the Holy Spirit in Mary's womb so He can be our Savior.

The Father and the Holy Spirit always existed but were not born. Merry Christmas!

It's pretty simple really and you see an example in your own life every day.

When you turn on your computer it boots up. The power surges through the thing's innards and what was previously a mass of inert plastic and metal becomes a thinking powerhouse able to differentiate between 0 and 1 so quickly that it seems like magic. It's called booting because it's like picking yourself up by your own bootstraps.

There was an Irishman once named the Strong Muldoon who was so strong that he could put his hand in his own hip pocket and hold himself out at arm's length. That's the ultimate in human bootstrapping. Truly!

God is like that inanimate computer but when somebody conjures him up out of their imagination it's like booting your computer and he comes to life. And, like your computer, he can add ones and zeroes so quickly that he made the whole universe in six days. (On the seventh day he had to take some down time to get his motherboard replaced.)

Unfortunately, in spite of making the world for us, he knows diddly squat about running it and passed that job over to a cyber-tech named Lucifer.

When I was about 9 years old my Sunday school teacher told me that if anybody told me there was no God, I should just say, "Then where do you think the world came from?"

I got into trouble immediately by asking, "But where did God come from?"

It seemed like the logical next step, even at that age.

And, Happy, whaddaya mean? That was nice.

We obviously don't pay these poor Sunday School teachers enough! The poor things, having to face down the early buddings of logic; questions from children who just want to understand why this nonsensical story is being fed to them as Truth. I'd pull my hair out!!

LOL, that's not how I lost my hair, Noveltman, but you're on the right track. Daizy and I had five kids -- that's when I started going bald.

And, Sparkielee, (wonder if that's like RobertELee?) I'm not surprised. Personally I liked Lucifer in his other guise, as Loki. He was lots more fun in the frozen north.

God was born at an evolutionary crossroads. There were two hypothetical humanoids way back when. One of them heard a rustle in the bushes, and immediately thought it was a venomous snake about to bite him and cause him tremendous amounts of pain and death. This guy practically jumped out of his skin and hoofed it three meadows over before even pausing to catch his breath. The other heard a rustle in the bushes and thought it was the wind.

Back in the days before modern times, this situation found itself being repeated many, many times. Most times, it really was just the wind. You'd find humanoid A still zipping out of there just as fast as he could go, and humanoid B would watch the lunatic hooting and hollering over fallen trees and such. Occasionally, though, it was a snake. And every time it WAS a snake, A would live, and B would die. Play this out over a long enough period of time, and tell me which reaction gained prominence.

Humanoid A didn't INVENT God. He just had a brain set up in such a way that belief in God was already in place. HIs descendants told stories to each other that were passed down forever and ever. And finally someone wrote them down. Put the words "Holy Bible" on the cover. And here we are.
