Who is God? Is He immutable? What does that mean?
Is God immutable? Dr. Gordon Isaac Hebrews 13:8 says Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever. It might help you to think of a wheel turning. In the axle driving that wheel there’s a mathematical point right at the center, and that point does not move. It remains constant. It remains still.
Immutable, according to the dictionary, means:
Unchanging over time or unable to be changed.
So, one could say then that God is an unmoved mover. But as soon as we’ve said that, there’s a danger lurking, for the language of the unmoved mover is actually the language of Greek philosophical ideas. But the god of the Greeks was one who was unknowable.
And that’s not how the God of the Bible is described. The God of the Bible is a person, and he deals with his people, he loves his people, he comes to his people. With a strong right arm he delivers the nation of Israel out of Egypt. So, the God of the Hebrew Scriptures is one who’s a person and one who reveals himself in love. Faithfulness through time we dare not forget that.

Our programs are like an immersion into a new language – the language of living in Jesus. The goal is fluency in the language of relationships. Programs share a sequential vision, building an understanding of relationships and family culture. The foundation is an encounter with Jesus. This encounter is the means for both insight and vision. Encountering Jesus leads a radical change in living and relationships.
