In reply to comment: If I knew the bible was true (see in situ)


"However, I have a question, did you ever ask why is there a god? Or where did god come from? "

Where God comes from is kind of an invalid question. It's sort of like walking up to a stranger and asking "when did you stop beating your wife?". It assumes that God had an origin, that he came from somewhere, just as the other invalid question assumes that someone had at one point beat their wife. The Bible teaches that God is eternal, that he has always existed. And some believe that God exists outside of Time, or has existed outside of time prior to creation, either in thinking that time is only experiential within the created universe(s), or in thinking that time did not exist until a timeless eternal God created it and entered into it.

Some verses used to support those ideas are here:

Eternality of God:
Psalms 90:2 "Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God."

Gods relation to time being different:
2nd Peter 3:8 "But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day."

God creating time:
Colossians 1:16-17 "For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist."

Regarding why God exists, you can ask "why we should believe God exists" one can take a classical approach and present things like the cosmological argument, but to ask merely why God exists at all is a tough question to answer in a classical way. the Brute fact approach is used for both theism and atheism, but I suggest looking at the presuppositional approach found in presuppositional apologetics: Here is an mp3 of the most famous debate using presuppositional apologetics addressing the existence of God:
and here is a transcript of the same debate:

The strength in the presuppositional approach is found in what it can account for. The presuppositional approach tends to argue that everyone ultimately relies on their presuppositions to explain reality, and that presupposing the Christian God exists accounts for the universe better than presupposing any other view.

Another thought is that God is a very basic and simple concept. Immaterial consciousness as a concept is not complex. So it's not as if God is a complex being requiring explanation for an origin of his complexity. Not that this last point fully answers the question, it might make it easier.
