As I stated in a previous blog, I am reading Christian Beliefs: 20 Basics every Christian Should know by Wayne and Elliot Grudem. Here of are some of main points of Chapter 2 titled “What is God Like.”
God is Truthful
God cannot lie. He is the One true God. We can count of Him to do what He says.
- But the LORD is the true God ; He is the living God and the everlasting King. At His wrath the earth quakes, And the nations cannot endure His indignation. (Jeremiah 10:10)
- “God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent ; Has He said, and will He not do it? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good ? (Numbers 23:19)
We can imitate God’s truthfulness, in part, by striving to have true knowledge of Him, and His word. We can also imitate God by being truthful in what we say and do. True faith is relying on God at His word to do what He promised.
