Only nothing can come of nothing so there has always been something, and God is it, self existent, having no beginning and no end. He is a truly majestic and magnificent being who has revealed himself to man as a three in one person, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. This is a statement of faith. However faith in God is like faith that the floor will be there when you step out of bed in the dark. The evidence is overwhelming and if God did forsake us it would be far more frightening than falling into a bottomless pit.
