Creation posits a Creator. Before the beginning of things, there must be some will that willed them to become. Without God, there can be no universe; nothing can happen without the will to make it happen.
In the New Testament, it is written in the Gospel of John,
- In the beginning was the Word!
The universe rose when God uttered the first word, and so the Word is called God. God willed and the universe happened. He is the cause and the consequence, the potter, the clay and the pot. He is the past, the present and the future, God has no beginning. God is the beginningless beginning of the Universe.
The Universe is the body of God that emerged from God.
