A pastor named Tim Barnett recently released a short video that takes aim at a popular atheist talking point about Christianity: that Christians can't truly hold to the notion that everything in existence has a creator.

Non-believers' point? If everything has a creator, then God, too, must have been created, as Faithwire reported.

But Barnett instantly poked holes in this argument, calling atheist proclamations along these lines "a complete misunderstanding of what Christians actually believe."

"No Christian apologist makes that first claim [that everything has a creator]. We don't believe that everything has a creator," he said. "We believe that everything that begins to exist has a cause."

Barnett continued, "That's a fundamental distinction, because if God did not begin to exist then he doesn't need a cause or creator."
