I the LORD, do not change! The doctrine of divine immutability
In this episode Peter and I discuss another one of God's incommunicable attributes: Immutability. Malachi 3:6 "I the LORD do not change. So you, O descendants of Jacob, are not destroyed.” Hebrews 6:17-18 Because God wanted to make the unchanging nature of his purpose very clear to the heirs of what was promised, he confirmed it with an oath. 18 God did this so that, by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled to take hold of the hope offered to us may be greatly encouraged. James 1:17 Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. Many Scriptures speak of God's unchanging nature but what does that mean and why does it matter? Peter and I discuss the doctrine of the immutability of God and also reflect on some of the recent events at Christ Community Church.
