Like for example, is there anything that exists that God didn’t create?

No, that’s not what I’m talking about. Everything in a nuclear bomb comes from materials God created.

God created everything into existence and Adam had the duty of naming all the living creatures (and everything else)

We know that evil exists and God did not create it.

“Therefore every teacher of the Torah(law) who has become a disciple in the kingdom of heaven is like the owner of a house who brings out of his storeroom new treasures as well as old.”





John 1
}Berei****h (In the beginning...) (Genesis)}1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God,and the Word was God.

Shemoth (The names...) (Exodus)}2 He was with God in the beginning.

Vayiqra (And He called...) (Leviticus)}3 All things came to be through him,
and without him nothing made had being.

Bamidbar (In the wilderness...) (Numbers)}4 In him was life,
and the life was the light of mankind.

Devarim (The words...) (Deuteronomy)}5 The light shines in the darkness,
and the darkness has not suppressed it.

It was the angels free will to rebel and the do opposite of what is "good", although they were created and were made wise it was not God who created their iniquity.. my understanding is that Calvinist apply sin solely to men (not angels) and since God wills it for some people to sin and go to hell then it's Gods fault for their sin, it's an odd doctrine, maybe anti Calvinist put those words in their mouths I dunno. Do some Christians really believe God creates sin for his Glory?

True,
Yeshua(jesus) stated that only God is Good.
Therefore the rebellelion of the Angel's is not something that was created.
It was an action by creatures with freewill.
Blessings Always

1. Creation involves two aspects: 1. The PHYSICS of this universe. 2. The spiritual realm of heaven - including angels (fallen and otherwise), some aspects of the supernatural


2. The Bible may state that God created "everything." Maybe (although I can't think of such a claim). But "thing" here refers to # 1 above. This would not include "evil" or "communism" or "skepticism" or "war", "everything" would not ideas or actions. God didn't "create" the Fall, in English we may speak of that as a "thing" but not in the sense of Creation.


3. The Laws of Physics operate. While God created physics, He did not "create" everything that is function of such. During World War II, physicists and engineers made the atom bomb by applying some laws of physics - this does not mean God created the atomic bomb, people did.

God didn’t create himself. Wouldn’t that be one thing that exists that God didn’t create?

God is not a part of physics..... No God is the Creator, not the Creation. See post # 9.

God is not a creature tho

Of course he’s not a creature. He’s uncreated. But God exists. So God himself would be one thing that exists that hasn’t been created.

But God exists

So?

Colossians 1:16 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:

He wasn't created at all. So what's your point?

Of course God wasn’t created. But he exists. So wouldn’t that be one thing that exists which God didn’t create?
