God Does Not Change
The finite mind cannot fully comprehend something or someone infinite. The tendency of mankind, therefore, is to reduce God to human likeness. Since people change, some assume that God changes with the passing of time as well but such is not the case. God is immutable. He does not choose to be so, He IS so because He is God. Change implies something improving or declining; getting larger or smaller; etc. but God cannot change and still be God. How could we truly know God, much less place our faith in One who vacillates and changes from one age to the next? But how do we reconcile this with changes we observe in the word of God itself? Is this a contradiction or does it mean that God has changed? In this broadcast of Let the Bible Speak, we look at the God who is unchanging in His purposes, His person, His pronouncements, and His promises.
The Unpardonable Sin
Two viewers write to Let the Bible Speak asking if they have committed "the unpardonable sin" by falling away and turning back to the world. This and similar questions have often brought thoughts of doubt, defeat, and depression to many Christians. Some even wonder if they have committed what the bible describes as the sin with no forgiveness without even knowing it. In this broadcast of Let the Bible Speak, we turn to Matthew 12 to see what this sin actually involves. We will see what the unpardonable sin is NOT. We'll also discover that although we cannot repeat the same scenario that Jesus warned the religious leaders about at that time, there is yet a warning to be gleaned.
