If God created everything, who created God?

This is a valid question for anyone with a finite concept of God. But for the Christian concept of God it is a non-question because He is infinite. By definition an infinite is unlimited and cannot have a beginning or end. This is the point of the cosmological argument for the existence of God, although the way it is normally worded only implies the infinite concept and leads to a lot of confusion. So I’ll try to state it more clearly and mix in some bonus material:

1. Every finite effect needs a cause.
2. The universe is a finite effect.
3. Therefore, the universe has a cause.
4. This cause cannot be finite or it too would need a cause.
5. Therefore, the cause of the universe must be infinite.
6. This infinite cause cannot be material, for all material is limited by space and time (and therefore finite).
7. Therefore, the infinite cause of the universe must be immaterial, such as a spirit.
8. Every finite effect needs not just a cause but an adequate cause.
9. So not only must the cause of the universe be infinite and immaterial, but also exhibit the necessary attributes to account for the effects we see in the universe, such as: a mind to account for logic, rationality, and the personal decision to create the universe; extremely powerful; ethics to ground morality; life to produce life; etc.

What about many universes? There cannot be an infinite number of finite universes, so there still needs to be an infinite, immaterial cause.

Who is the head of the all religions around the globe? Isn’t it God?

Matt. 24:14; 28:19, 20: “This good news of the kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations; and then the end will come.” “Go therefore and make disciples of people of all the nations, baptizing them . . . teaching them.” (How would this be accomplished without organization? When Jesus trained his early disciples for this work, He did not simply tell each one to go wherever he desired and to share his faith in whatever way he chose. He trained them, gave them instructions and sent them out in an organized manner. See Luke 8:1; 9:1-6; 10:1-16).

Answer

How could the God of the bible be the head of religions that contradict the bible? He’s only the head of one true religion and Satan is the head of all the rest.
