  • Apr 30 2013: Hi Teodor, may I fill in the blancs :)

    How far is this true?
    Right on. It almost sounds as if you've read Swedenborg. I'll leave a link further down.

    Can we say that something created the universe?
    Yes and that something was, and is, the infinite God. I say "and is" because existence is constant creation.

    Or did the Big Bang create the universe?
    No. If there was a 'big bang' then it is God's Divine Love and Divine Wisdom proceeding and entering the universe, changing into and creating the Celestial - Spiritual and Natural heavens and finally becoming matter.

    Is it true that the universe came from nothing?
    Nothing material, yes. The universe was created from the spirit, or Love of God. Which of course is nothing material.
    I.e. a painter creates a painting from the love and wisdom in his/her mind.

    How can we explain the Big Bang?
    First of all, the Creation Story has nothing to do with the creation of this universe or this world. It is all a metaphor about how God can, if we want Him to, create a spiritual being within us.
