Nice explanation Arlene!
As Pastor Scott explained it to me, there must be a first cause. We don’t see something just pop into existence from nothing, despite what auto accident reports might try to say – “But officer, the other car just appeared in front of me from nowhere!”. We don’t have any evidence to say that physical things exist without a cause.
So the universe didn’t just pop into existence from nothing, there was a need the universe to be created by an immaterial being that is outside of space & time, God.
