Does God Change His Mind?
Recently, there has been a significant discussion thread on the issue of God changing His mind. Most of the contributors seem to agree with the contention that the Almighty, the Ruler of the Universe and the Lover of our souls, does change His mind, according to changes in circumstances. Such a position is discomforting, as it does not agree with the deeper understandings of Scripture.
In my response to these assertions, I made the following points:
God lives outside space and time and, therefore, is able to see life events and human responses before they occur.
All scripture may be read at deeper levels, other than the literal reading, although every reading must begin with the literal.
Reading God’s Word only at the literal level often does and frequently has led young believers and skeptics to adopt heretical theological positions, in order to place God in a box, which would make His Word more understandable.
