God’s Mind – Part One

“Do you act like God?”

Do you act like God?

Does God change His mind? While there are Christians who believe that God changes His mind, there are those who disagree. Remarkably, each of this group backup their claims with Scriptures.

Interestingly, each of these contrasting positions is correct but then, they are often quoted out of context.

Anytime the Bible mentions God’s unchanged mind, it refers to His integrity or nature. God is by nature, unchangeable. Unlike man, God doesn’t mature or grow. Also, because of His integrity, God does not break a promise. It was based on this context that Balaam affirmed God’s unchangeable character. (Exodus 32:1-14; Hebrews 7:21-22)

But when it comes to empathy and forgiveness, God changes His mind (Jonah 3:10).

Do you act like God?
