In my continuing series of honest questions to Christians, I give you question number 5.
Can God truly destroy something?
Let me preface this question with some logic. If God, the creator of all things who exists outside of time and space is capable of creating all things. Can God also destroy all things to the point where even he could not bring them back?
This question sort of popped in my head when I started thinking about nonexistence. Is there such a thing as nonexistence or void of all existence?
After all, for God to “create” he must put things together. But he must create substance in the beginning from which he can create those things. Before that substance is created does it exist? Is it nonexistent? If something can be pulled from nonexistence, can’t all things be pulled from nonexistence? If so are they truly nonexistence if they exist within nonexistence from whence they were pulled?
If God can bring it back it’s not really destroyed.
It seems to me that for God to truly destroy something, it would need to be completely absent of God. Something God is not even aware of.
