Infinity and Beyond

The concept of infinity is truly mind-boggling. We can NOT comprehend it. When I was in my teens I would sometimes get myself worked up by trying to fathom where “everything started.” What was before before before before…? What was God doing BEFORE He made the universe? Did He make other universes before ours to experiment a bit? Are we model #1,254,368? Such things can be quite troubling if we try to handle them using our...
