How Old Is God?
by Wayne Blank
Timeless and Perfect
Change happens when something gets either better or worse; to stay the same means no change. People change, while God never changes. God has always been absolutely perfect - God can become neither better or worse. God does not change; therefore what God says is right, or wrong, is for all time. True right and wrong is timeless.
All that is good is of God, and what is truly good does not change:
"Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with Whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning." (James 1:17 KJV)
The earth was created long ago, and it will last until it is renewed, but through it all, God does not, and will not, change.
"Of old hast Thou laid the foundation of the earth [see The First Scientist]: and the heavens [see Heavens Below, Heavens Above] are the work of Thy hands. They shall perish, but Thou shalt endure: yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shalt Thou change them, and they shall be changed: But Thou art the same, and Thy years shall have no end." (Psalm 102:25-27 KJV)
There is no "generation gap" with God. God's Word is for all time. Rigged translations of the original Hebrew and Greek Scriptures for "politically-correct" purposes, to suit the cyclical liberality or conservatism of a particular generation or era, are not "versions" of the Bible, they are perversions of the Bible. As the Scriptures below make plain, turning the Gospel into something that it isn't is a very serious matter:
"The counsel of The Lord standeth for ever, the thoughts of His heart to all generations." (Psalm 33:11 KJV)
