I am going to answer this through the perspective of your post title,
and whats written in the OP.
This has nothing to do with me replying to you or your belief,
but more a way to talk of two different questions which were asked between the topic and Original Post.
The highest understanding of the divine, always breaks down to paradox.
Read the post signature under my posts, this is a clue to this very question.
Why god is so amazing, is because its never changing.
It is, always is, and ever will be.
If we need to ask who created "it",
we are failing to miss how amazing this being is and why it is worshiped.
Nothing real can be threatened, as nothing unreal exists.
Only love exists, and it always will.
There is nothing but unconditional love, or what I call God.
This can never be threatened as everything else is an illusion.
Nothing unreal exists.
Meaning, in the end there is and always was, just love.
Herein lies the peace of God....
I wrote an intro to one of my blogs that pertains to this,
Ill post it here, its written in allegory,
but explains why we experience everything but Love.
When we say who created God,
maybe the more fair question is,
who created everything else?
As God is what has ALWAYS existed and is why it is seen with such aww.
They were two very distinct promises made by both sides about what would happen when we ate the fruit of knowledge of good and evil. The serpent claimed that we would be Gods and God claimed that we would surely die. Not a single lie was ever spoken. The serpent did what it promised, through the dance of light and dark, the dream of duality, we forgot who we were to realize who we are. It is only in this remembrance that a true grasp and vision of how great we truly are can be achieved. The serpent made Adam a God, for he showed Adam that he IS GOD!
And God never lied either. A tear fell upon its face as you made the choice, the original Sin. For now the Eternal was made finite. The perfect, imperfect. You believed the calling of the serpent, the lie that was never spoken. For you did not understand that you were God already and the bait of thinking you could become an even greater God, set you on the journey to the realization of who you are. It was a trick played on the Ego. A trap God knew it would fall for eventually. As only one thing can be counted on from the ego, imperfection. God knew eventually from in its falling, the Glory of God can be Realized. But in this realization, the deathless will be forced to die.
This entailed a never ending cycle. The imperfection of the ego always eventually falling for the trap that it can be God, only to find out that this was THE tool used to show that it was and always will be God. The trickster was played at his own game and what remained is what is. Love.
The bible talks how Adam fell under a great sleep, no where does it say that hes awoken. It is my hopes, through these words, that the beginning of that awakening can take place. Rise Adam and Eve; for you never left the Garden, you have and always will be whole. Remember this until you choose to forget once again and the dance of eternity will go on forever.
I think Christ, is gods consciousness.
God is everything,
and the everything cant go inside of itself,
as it is everything.
What it can do,
is send the consciousness of that everything into a vessel.
I believe Christ to be the consciousness of the father or creator.
If you read the allegory written above,
we see that it is our own choice that created everything but love.
Why Christ is so important is,
God knew we couldn't get out of this illusion/dream we created ourselves.
Even after telling us it was a bad choice,
even after giving us the love and opportunity to understand that ourselves,
it knew we couldn't ever get ourselves out unless it showed us the way.
This is where the Christ is important.
And lets be honest,
there have be hundreds if not thousands of Christs.
Most live in silence, some stand out throughout history.
Why Jesus, who walked with the consciousness of the Christ,
was so important was because it showed humans how to walk the walk,
not just talk the talk.
And we are talking through the most horrific suffering and example of.
There will never be a "harder" level to play in this game we created,
so god played that final level for us to show us it is possible.
This is the love that is God.
Do you see why he died for our sins?
As it was our original sin that created everything but what existed, love.
And now in doing so, we have to experience everything else possible to know love is the only creation.
That means someone has to play that final, most horrific level.
As all levels must be played and beaten before we can say love is the only creation we choose to create.
We started the process and it must be finished,
all will march home prodigal sons proclaiming love is the only creation.
That we choose to only create love just as our father chooses.
Even though it was our choice to come, to create everything else.
The father loves you so much that it played the hardest level and the final level needed,
so this dream can end.
I am not to sure we could have played it ourselves and in not doing so, would have been here forever.
Without this guide, this inspiration, this role model.
I dont think humans would have figured out how to undreamed this dream of separation.
When I say Christ, we can put Krishna in here also.
Please don't think this is owned by a certain region or people.
Culture has it explained it many ways.
The Christ has written us a story throughout history if we follow its path throughout culture.
But the incantation through Jesus is very important for the final lesson he showed.
As this final lesson was unconditional love at its highest expression.
Whats very special is,
God loved you so much that it created a dream for you to experience this in.
Its all illusion, it knew your choice was irrational.
Even though you had to experience everything in contrast of love to know what love is now,
he allowed you to experience it in a dream that you will wake up from and realize it never existed.
This is true unconditional love when understood.
In divine friendship,
