I have spoken before on both the notion of God being ‘being’, and the cosmological argument, and a thought came to me.
Even if the universe was eternal, (which it isn’t), it would still need being as a quality in order to exist, so would have prior causes. Being is (I believe) either irreducible, or can be reduced to something which is irreducible, in order to prevent an infinite regress.
Now according to my thoughts, there is no reason why agent causation shouldn’t be any less relevant here, so the universe could still have a personal cause.
If I am getting something wrong, please tell me.
