God does not change. His Word does not change. Sometimes we have tried to twist God’s Word so that it meets what we want to believe or do. I think that it the case with homosexuality and abortion. Some people want these immoral behaviors to be okay, and they try to justify them by either ignoring or interpreting God’s Word in creative ways. I read two quotations in Dr. Denison’s newsletter today that said exactly what I am trying to express.
…let’s note that changing our opinions regarding God and his word changes neither God nor his word. As C. S. Lewis observed, denying the sunrise does not harm the sun. -Dr. Jim Denison Sept. 21, 2020
When we change our opinions regarding the truth, we do not change the truth. President Abraham Lincoln once employed a popular riddle: “If I should call a sheep’s tail a leg, how many legs would it have?” His audience answered, “Five.” Lincoln replied, “No, only four; for my calling the tail a leg would not make it so.” -Dr. Jim Denison, Sept. 21, 2020
So, calling abortion the choice of the woman does not make it okay. It’s still murder, and God’s word calls murder a sin. Calling homosexuality okay because you were “ born that way” does not make it right. God’s word calls it a sin.
You have the right to disagree with me. After all, this is a free country. However, you disagree with God’s Word to your own peril because His Word is never-changing, never bowing to the interpretation of fallen mankind.
Why I’m Writing This Today
Well, as everyone knows, the Supreme Court has a vacancy and the big issue is how liberal Ginsberg was and how she supported abortion rights for women. In fact, she supported many liberal causes. Now the liberals are upset that they will lose their influence on the highest Court of the land. My desire is that the Supreme Court just follow the Constitution, not add things to it that are not there. Recently, this body normalized gay marriage. One justice dissented because he was concerned about what might be normalized next, like polygamy perhaps. Now, there is the chance that the highest court might begin to once again interpret things constitutionally, giving their decisions more of an interpretation that would be acceptable to God and following the guidance in His Word. So, once again, I state that we can change our opinions about God and the contents and meaning of the Holy Bible. But God doesn’t change. Just because you deem that something is okay does not mean that it’s okay with God. We need to spend a lot of time in prayer during this season before the election because our nation’s future depends on it.
Blessings to you, my friends. I hope that you will read my blog today with an open mind and heart. I wrote from my heart and know that God forgives sin today just as He always has. There is nothing you have done that God cannot forgive.
One thought on “Our Opinions and God’s Word”
Yes. The Word of the Lord stands forever; we can never move it or tear it down – He is that merciful.
