How Old Is God?

Time is a measurement of physical change. Time has therefore only existed since the creation of the physical universe when humans began to measure years, months, days and hours as instructed by God: "Let there be lights [i.e. the sun and the moon] in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years" (Genesis 1:14 KJV). But God is not physical. God has always existed, before time began. Before the creation of the universe, God lived timeless in which no yesterdays ever happened and no tomorrows ever came. God has no age and does not age. If one could see God the Father, He could just as well look like a young man as an old one - "young" or "old" is something that applies to mortal physical humans that God created "in His own image" (Genesis 1:27 KJV). Even after the Creation, physical time is irrelevant to God because God is Spirit i.e. "one day is with The Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day" (2 Peter 3:8 KJV) just as His children may one day become spirit, set free from time: "And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever" (Revelation 22:5 KJV, see also the Fact Finder question below).

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.

Stars of Heaven 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)

"As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other Gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed." (Galatians 1:9 KJV)
