CG7: God Was Not Created

Rebuilt Gymnasium in Sardis.

This is one of the most impressive buildings in the area of any of the seven churches of Revelation 2 & 3. However, it has been recently and massively rebuilt as its original condition was in ruin. And while it and its size are impressive, it no longer functions as it once did.


In the September 2008 edition of CG7’s Bible Advocate magazine, its president, Whaid Rose related the following:

Consider this conversation between a little boy and his father. “Who made me?” the boy asked.

“God,” Dad replied.

“Who made you?” the boy continued.

“God did.”

Again the boy asked, “Did God make everybody?”

“Yes,” Dad responded, “all the people in the world.”

So far, Dad’s answers were correct, but the tough question followed: “If God made all the people in
the world, then who made God?”

Dad scratched his head, then said, “I guess God made Himself.”

Wrong answer! To say God made Himself implies that at one time God did not exist and that He is a created being. This contradicts the scriptural assertion that God is creator, not created; that He has always existed apart from His creation; that He is the uncaused cause, the unmoved mover, the I AM.

And Whaid Rose’s assessment of the Dad’s position is correct.

God, whose family began with the Ancient of Days (the Father) and the Word (Jesus), was not created.
