Episode Summary

It has been said that the only thing consistent in this life is change. With change everywhere around us, we need something that doesn’t move – doesn’t change – something or Someone on whom we can depend. And that someone is God. The doctrine of Immutability simply means that God is unchangeable. 

Topics We Discussed in this Episode

●     [4:34]            The doctrine of Immutability simply means that God is unchangeable. God is unchanging in who He is, His being, His purposes, His promises, His character – everything about God is unchanging.    

●     [7:39]            The contrast between being and becoming marks the difference between the Creator and the created.  

●     [8:59]            God is unchanging in both His purposes and His promises. 

●     [11:48]          Does God change his mind?

●     [16:41]          To answer the question, “Why is this important in my day-to-day life?”, let’s ask the question, “What would it be like if God could change?”.
