Does God make mistakes? 

This post is from something that I read on Facebook the other day, that really made me start thinking. What got me thinking was the comment that someone had put with a particular story, and the comment was “If God doesn’t punish America then He will have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.” The story that he was commenting on was of a man and two women having a life together because “it would be a lot better for their child and the child on the way to have three parents.”

Does God need to apologize…or better yet, does God ever make a mistake? For anyone who knows or has even heard of God, knows that He described as being perfect, all-knowing. Translation, He doesn’t make mistakes. 

Malachi 3:6 “I am the Lord, and I do not change. That is why you descendants of Jacob are not already destroyed. 

James 1:17 Whatever is good and perfect is a gift coming down to us from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens. He never changes or casts a shifting shadow. 

Numbers 23:19 God is not a man, so he does not lie. He is not human, so he does not change his mind. Has he ever spoken and failed to act? Has he ever promised and not carried it through? 

In case you aren’t familiar with the story of Sodom and Gomorrah, you can find it in Genesis 18-19. But this is a story of God bringing destruction to these two cities for their sins, but the tipping point for God was their sin of homosexuality. Sexual sin is praised here in America, people have parades for it, we call it “freedom” to do whatever you want to do. Isaiah 5:20 What sorrow for those who say that evil is good and good is evil, that dark is light and light is dark, that bitter is sweet and sweet is bitter. This verse describes the people of America…confused. 

Galatians 5:19-21 When you follow the desires of your sinful nature, the results are very clear: sexual immorality, impurity, lustful pleasures, idolatry, sorcery, hostility, quarreling, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambition, dissension, division, envy, drunkenness, wild parties, and other sins like these. Let me tell you again, as I have before, that anyone living that sort of life will not inherit the Kingdom of God. God will NEVER have to apologize, because He is NEVER wrong. Everything in His Word, everything that He has done and will do, will be perfect.
