We spent much time considering God's immutability--the quality of being unchanging. Therefore, if God is eternally unchanging then what about His word? It would have to be unalterable as well. There is no wiggle room, then, to change His word to say something other than what He declares. Peter Hitchens (brother of the infamous athiest, Christopher Hitchins) affirms, *"The second atheist problem is the unbelievers' assertion that it is possible to determine what is right and what is wrong without God. They have a fundamental inability to concede that to be effectively absolute, a moral code needs to be beyond human power to alter." In essence, you simply cannot change the laws, precepts, and teachings of God without accountability to God for it. Maybe that is why Jeremiah, under the inspiration of the Holy Ghost, wrote, "A wonderful and horrible thing is committed in the land; The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?" Jeremiah 5:30-31 The people were altering God's word, speaking falsely in His name, or adding to and deleting from His word. He concludes with a rhetorical question that speaks of divine retribution, "...what will ye do in the end thereof?"
I ran across this article. It is not news. It is not newsworthy. It is yet another example of an attempt to make sin sound legitimate. It is yet another attempt to change the values of this nation in opposition to the clear and definite directions of God. Notice the many comments in the comments section where people alter, add to, take away from, misinterpret, or reinterpret the word of God. The author of this article and those who agree with or seek to strengthen the argument are more than likely unawares or seriously underestimating their inability to change the immutable word of the immutable God!
