What existed before creation and before God? This is an age old question, often asked by children, and stumping parents and religious teachers. Although it seems perplexing at first, the answer is really quite simple.

When God created the universe, it created everything out of itself. including the law. God’s laws are those of nature, the laws of physics, chemistry and mathematics. Time is an integral part of these laws, and was created with them. To use the concept of time in the question, “what was before creation?”, is to ask about a concept which was not yet created. To put it simply, there was no before, until after God created time.
