Was He lonely?
Because God is a relationship of three persons who love and enjoy each other: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
So there are multiple Gods?
No. Just one.
But you just said...
I know. It's not a contradiction, though. Really.
Yes it is.
Well, what makes something “one”?
Something is one if it's a single unit.
Is God a physical unit?
If God is not a single unit in a physical sense, in what sense is He a single unit?
In a spiritual sense.
Is the Trinity one in a spiritual sense?
I guess. But there are multiple persons in it.
Yes, but their relationship is perfect. So perfect that they are one in the truest sense of the word.
So God was never lonely?
Because He is three persons.
Yes, but not just because He is three persons. He was never lonely because those three persons are one.
What do you mean?
Well, you can be lonely even if you are surrounded by others.
But that's because your relationship with them is imperfect. They don't really know you. You don't really know them. It's not like that with the Trinity.
So if God is perfect and He was never lonely, why did He create?
Because He wanted to.
Why did He want to? I thought He was perfect. He doesn't need anything.
I guess because it gave him joy.

God didn't need this. He wanted it. Science attempts to measure and label the physical forces that bind the material world together, but it can never uncover their true source. What holds an atom together? Nuclear forces? What are those forces? If the universe is the product of God's will, all forces are a consequence of His desire - products of His delight.
The universe is an extension of God's joy.
So are you.
So am I.
