THEOLOGY > God > God's Existence   


Some theologians object to the word “existence” because etymologically the word speaks of that which has an origin, of that which is given reality; so that which is created is that which exists. Therefore, in the strictest sense, it is said that God does not exist for He has never been created; He simply “is.”

Of man it must be said that he “exists” not that he “is.” In other words, God and man cannot be spoken of in the same manner, at least when seeking to state the essential nature of each. A distinct difference must be maintained between God and man: man was created by God, whereas, God is without beginning. He always is “AM.” God is “He who is” (T. Aquinas, Summa, I, 13, 11).
