Session 24: Immutability of God Part 2: Does God repent?

Purpose: In this session we shall consider objections to the doctrine of the immutability of God from verses that mentions God repenting so that we would see how to respond to them and finally draw implications for our lives from the truth that God is unchanging.

Reminder of the definition of the immutability of God:

  1. Essentially this doctrine means that God does not change.
  2. Note: There are differences and slight nuances concerning the definition of the immutability of God among theologians, even Evangelical ones as we see below.
  3. John MacArtur and Richard Mayhue: “God’s immutability is his perfect unchangeability in his essence, character, purpose, and promises.”[1]
  4. John Feinberg: It is “the belief that God does not change in his person (being and attributes), will (decree), or purposes.”[2]
  5. Wayne Grudem: “God is unchanging in his being, perfections, purposes, and promises, yet God does act and feel emotions, and he acts and feels differently in response to different situations.”[3]

Purpose: Today we will continue to see how extra-biblical studies confirm that obedience to God’s Principles of the importance of fathers in the lives of children.

  • The importance of father for new born health
  • The importance of father for infant development

Our Study’s Biblical Principle:Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. 2 Honor your father and mother (which is the first commandment with a promise), 3 so that it may turn out well for you, and that you may live long on the earth..” (Ephesians 6:1-3)

From this passage we see the importance of honoring our father. One of the reasons we honor our fathers is because fathers are so important for a child’s life even in the early years of a child.

Some methodological precaution:

  •            Keep in mind Correlation does not always mean causation; yet correlation and patterns are important.
  •            Don’t confuse primary motivation for obedience versus getting good side effects

7_questions_christians_should_think_about_and_ask_concerning_woke_claims

Given the New Left has made everything political in which there is no neutrality, and that include the personal (see ) I thought these seven questions mind  be helpful for believers to think about as social media, public education, entertainment and woke corporations swarms people to go with the flow of the trend of being politically woke.  I minister to young people in a very liberal part of the US, have done campus ministry even back when I was in the Marines, as a student and also an campus ministry adviser and I see this creep into among believers all the time which affects the individual’s sanctification.  

For this post I will list the seven questions and some explanation about the questions.

bible_contradiction_resolved_did_god_kill_all_the_egyptian_cattle_in_the_fifth_plague

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Did God kill all the Egyptian cattle in the fifth plague?

Here are the two answers which the skeptic believes indicate a Bible contradiction:

Yes, they were all killed.

In the fifth plague of Egypt (the plague of cattle) “all the cattle of Egypt died.”

behold, the hand of the Lord will come with a very severe plague on your livestock which are in the field, on the horses, on the donkeys, on the camels, on the herds, and on the flocks. 4 But the Lord will make a distinction between the livestock of Israel and the livestock of Egypt, so that nothing will die of all that belongs to the sons of Israel.”’” 5 And the Lord set a definite time, saying, “Tomorrow the Lord will do this thing in the land.” 6 So the Lord did this thing on the next day, and all the livestock of Egypt died; but not one of the livestock of the sons of Israel died.” (Exodus 9:3-6)

No he saved some to kill later.

More Egyptian cattle were killed in the seventh plague (hail).

So now, send word, bring your livestock and whatever you have in the field to safety. Every person and animal that is found in the field and is not brought home, when the hail comes down on them, will die.”’”” (Exodus 9:19)

And God killed “all the firstborn of cattle” in the tenth plague.

Now it came about at midnight that the Lord struck all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh who sat on his throne to the firstborn of the captive who was in the dungeon, and all the firstborn of cattle.” (Exodus 12:29)
