Does my Mjollnir conflict with your bible?

Do you think there could have been Gods before there was just God? If you're a Christian can you accept the idea of there previously being more than one?

  • OP: if you don't believe there were Gods before God then how do you explain Gods existence?
    ----
    If the existence of God means that other Gods must have created him, then who created those Gods, and who created the Gods that created those Gods? Who then created the Gods that created the Gods that created God? When you put God on a timeline and say that other God's *must* exist in order for God to exist because he *must* have a creator in order to exist, you get a never ending chain of Gods upon Gods upon Gods, each needing to fulfill that definition for the preceeding God.

    God isn't on a timeline, he exists free from the constraints of time and space. Human beings have difficulty understanding the infinite. But that's just it, he's infinite, it his origins made "sense" to a finite mind, he would cease to be infinite.

  • Sure why not. Of course I dismiss all gods equally. That's just me, but man has always tried to come up with some reason things occur. God is one of many such myths. My opinion.

  • I believe there is only one true, living God. The God of the Bible. None before, none after.

  • But how do you explain GOD? Where did he come from?

  • Where would any of your gods have come from?

    I imagine your answer would be much the same as mine. He was, He is, He will always be. Meaning He has no creator, He was here from the beginning.

    Hey, it all had to start from somewhere, right? No matter what god you believe in, someone had to be here from the beginning. If God has a creator, then who/what created the creator that created God?

  • The only thing I never understood was that one of the 10 commandment says to have no other Gods before him. Does that mean that there are other Gods...or God knew other people were going to make some up?

  • It is my opinion that God makes it clear that he is the first and the last, the beginning and the end. So no, that's not a possibility that I entertain :-)
