RE: The missing piece in the puzzle is the premortal life?

Christians, and Jews believe that God created all that exists ex nihilo (out of nothing). Mormonism is quite different in its cosmology, claiming that God fashioned the universe out of preexisting material. God is eternal in some forms of LDS theology, but so is preexisting matter, including the material used by God to create human beings.

The issue of creation relates to other significant world view issues, such as the source of moral values, the problem of evil, and God’s power. It is important to note that one’s belief in creation has significant consequences and, in the case of Mormonism, the solutions are inadequate.
In contrast, the Christian explanations of creation ex nihilo, the fall, and redemption offer better explanations of the observable universe and of moral values.

The Mormon God too weak to create ex nihilo? If so, then is he less than omnipotent?

Jude 1:6 And the angels who did not keep their positions of authority but abandoned their own home… Fallen angels(devils) Nothing to with pre mortal being...
