Christ is risen!
I have an itching question. We as Christians always like to make the case that God as Triune proves that God is love, for if God is love, He had to have loved someone eternally, which is why the Father loved the Son because both are one God, and there was never a time when God did not love.
However, can one say this about all of God's uncreated attributes? One attribute that I find difficult to connect with as "eternal" is being the Creator. Being creator means that there was a time when things created did not exist. Thus, this may conclusively mean that there was a time when God was not Creator? Unless one is willing to believe that there was never a time when God ceased to create.
One conclusion is not to use "God is love" as proof for the Triune nature of God, unless you want to also say that God as creator is proof of the creation of the Son and Holy Spirit, which is something, as we all know, is heretical. Instead, one can use that argument that just because God is love does not mean He loved eternally, but rather loved because He created (I'm sure Muslims may use this line of reasoning).
Sooo, help me out on this one. If the Triune nature of God is used to prove that God is love, then should that not extend to all other attributes, especially God being the Creator?
