Will God Contradict Himself?

it is impossible for God to lie

Contradicting Himself is impossible with God because He can not deny Himself.

2 TIMOTHY 2:13
If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.

God — the real God — is a God of principles that teaches us, also, to stand by the good principles He teaches the faithful.

ROMANS 14:22
Hast thou faith? have it to thyself before God. Happy is he that condemneth not himself in that thing which he alloweth.

He is not a God that tells us something is colored red, and after us beholding that it is red tells us that it is blue; unlike ‘the god’ of the Iglesia ni Manalo (INC) that constantly changes his teachings. After teaching their members for almost a century that Felix Manalo is “undoubtedly the seed of Abraham”, when Brother Soriano emerged as a critic of that erroneous teaching, they suddenly changed it to be the Lord Jesus Christ.

After making people believe (even students of geography) that the Philippines is the Far East, they now assert a blatant lie that they have never taught it.

God’s word and wisdom written in the Bible are straightforward declaration of the absolute truth. There is no contradiction whatsoever. God guarantees it; but it will appear to be clear and concise only to an understanding mind of someone favored by the grace of the Holy Spirit.

All the words of my mouth are in righteousness; there is nothing froward or perverse in them. They are all plain to him that understandeth, and right to them that find knowledge.

2 PETER 1:20-21
Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the Scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

There are absolute truths in the Bible that work out to be the guiding principle in understanding the written word of God. They are our guide to discern the absolute truth about everything that exists, and within the capacity of our awareness. Of course, our awareness is limited compared to God’s. The absolute truth is: God is a God of truth!

Into thine hand I commit my spirit: thou hast redeemed me, O LORD God of truth.

Being the God of truth, He is faithful. In Greek, ‘pistos’ one supplied meaning is trustworthy, among others.

From G3982; objectively trustworthy; subjectively trustful: – believe (-ing, -r), faithful (-ly), sure, true.

It follows that He cannot lie.

In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began…

Emphatically, it is impossible for Him to lie!

That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us…

What about the verses that say:

LUKE 1:37
For with God nothing shall be impossible.

But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, with men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.

Those who are trying to destroy the credibility of the written word of God employ these verses to put doubt to the truth that God’s words are without contradictions; but a quick look at the context will immediately erase any clout of doubt in the mind of someone with understanding.

The phrases “For with God nothing shall be impossible” and “…with God all things are possible” if taken within the context of the conversation, reveal that the Lord Jesus Christ and the angel Gabriel are speaking of things that, for man, are impossible to be done. What they are saying is what is not attainable by man can be done by God. Whereas, on the other side, those things that are impossible with God are things which He will not (and cannot) do to Himself or on His person…He cannot lie; it is impossible for him to lie; He cannot change Himself ; He cannot deny Himself, etc.

See the point?

I want to re-cite the verse PROVERBS 8:8-9:

All the words of my mouth are in righteousness; there is nothing froward or perverse in them. They are all plain to him that understandeth, and right to them that find knowledge.

God’s words are all plain and right to somebody who understands. It is plain and simple that we must “honor our father and mother” (EPHESIANS 6:2).

Do you agree that it is not very hard to understand? It is also plain, simple, and can very well be understood to read “Husbands, love your wives…” (EPHESIANS 5:25)

Nowhere in the scriptures can you find something that will contradict these plain and simple truths. A seeming contradiction for others, even reiterates this simple commandment:

He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.

It means that we must love a mother, a father, a son, a daughter, and wife, but not more than our love for God.

MATTHEW 22:36-39
Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.

God must always be our priority — our loved ones follow. Is there any contradiction?

I hope and pray that you will understand.

Sincerely in Christ,

Brother Eli Soriano

  14. God must be our priotity- our love ones will follow-

    Minsan akong naging Katoliko pero never kong naging Priority noon ang Dios dahil mas mahalaga sa akin noon ang maglasing, magbarkada, mambabae at kung ano ano pang kalayawan sa mundo. Walang aral sa hanay ng mga paring katoliko na nagbabawal dito. Ang katunayan ay ang napakarami nilang ipinag pipistang mga santo at pagkatapos nito ay inuman at lasingan. Binyag na may inuman, pamisa na may inuman, kasalan na may inuman, sabong at sugal sa pistahan at kung ano ano pa.

    Naging isa din akong kasapi ng Born again na papabor uli sa kalayawan na kinahihiligan ko noon dahil sa aral na once save always save. Naging guitarista ako at isa sa mga naging youth leader. Pero dahil sa ang paniniwala ko noon ay ligtas ako anuman ang gawin ko. Tuloy parin ako sa ibang bisyo at paglalasing.

    At ang pinaka huli ay naging kaanib ako sa pinaka mahigpit na kalaban ng samahang ito. (MCGI). Na nag alis naman sa akin ng takot sa kahit sino pang kaaway. Patuloy ang bisyo At pag may makaka away ay siguradong may paglalagyan ka pag binangga mo sa away.

    God must be our priority:
    Salamat sa Dios dahil nong nasumpungan ko ang tunay na kahulugan ng salitang ito ay natutunan ko na pag siya ang inuna mo gagaan ang bigat na dalahin mo. Dios ang may sabi na mahalin mo ang sambahayan mo kaya pag mahal mo ang Dios susunod kang mahalin ang pamilya mo. Siya din ang may sabi na mahalin ang kaaway pag nagutom ay pakainin ng pagkaing makakain at pag nauhaw ay painumin ng inuming maiinom. Kaya pag priority mo ang Dios susunod ka sa utos na lingapin maging ang kaaway. Paglalasing at anumang katulad nito (bisyo) ay di magmamana ng kaharian sa langit kaya pag inuna mo ang Dios titigil ka sa lahat ng ito at lalakad ng may kabanalan.

    Napaka gandang blog ito sa lahat. At dahil sa blog na ito isang bagay ang naalala at masasabi ko.

    Hindi mahalaga sa akin kung siraan ng siraan ang taong nasa likod ng blog na ito. Ang mahalaga sa akin ay ang isang bagay. "Dati akong bulag ngayoy nakaka kita na ako"
    To God be the glory.

  15. Thanks be to God. ��
    Another wonderful blog.❤️

  16. Salamat sa Dios because we have been taught well by Bro. Eli Soriano and kuya Daniel Razon with the help and mercy of God! God bless you!

  17. Very plain and simple to him that understandeth and find knowledge and no amount of human understanding can discern the truth in God's word unless by the grace of the Holy Spirit. Thanks be to God!

  18. Reading the bible should basically be understood that God will not contradict Himself because the devil will always find a way to confuse the reader...

  19. Hindi rin nagsisilid ng bagong alak sa mga balat na luma: sa ibang paraan ay nangagpuputok ang mga balat, at nangabububo ang alak, at nangasisira ang mga balat: kundi isinisilid ang bagong alak sa mga bagong balat, at kapuwa nagsisitagal.
    Matthew 9:17

  20. Dios es de verdad absoluta.En Él no hay contradicción, como lo dice en proverbios 8:8,9.gracias a el señor controversia.

  21. Truly, God is a God of Truth and consistent to his words and promises. Thanks be to God.

  22. Thanks be to GOD for His wisdom and understanding..

  23. The only material explanation that God can't contradict himself is his creations. I believe that by faith he can't contradict himself but this is hard to the infidels and atheists. But look to the nature, it teaches a lot about himself. Everything is in harmony although all of them will end but it's created very good. One way that nature teaches us about his perfect being that some scientists still computing his uncontradicting infinity.

  24. Kahit Kelan Hindi Pwedeng Magka Konta Ang Salita Ng Dios!! Nangyayari Lang ito "Sa Mga Hindi Nakakaunawa Sa Biblia!! Sapagkat Nasusulat; "Ang Dios Ay Hindi Maaring Magsinungaling!

  25. Just a thought from this very educational blog; i have observe that man contradicts himself from time to time to justify his/her particular action but God will never contradict Himself.

  26. A person reading the bible sometimes sees some contradicting verses but faith in God will remove doubts in our minds and will be able to see the truth sown by the Creator. God will never contradict Himself.

  27. The wisdom I see in this blog is God will not contradict Himself because He is God.

  28. For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten son that whosoever believeth in Him shall have everlasting life (Jn. 3:16). By this verse God will not contradict Himself. Even the devil himself believes in this doctrine written in the bible.

  29. James 5:12 (But above all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, neither by the earth, neither by any other oath: but let your yea be yea; and your nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation.) Please let us be guided by this verse not to contradict ourselves for God said so and so it shall be done.


  31. God is a supporter in all people because god is a absolute truthful of all God all things are possible But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them with men this is impossible but with God all things are possible.

  32. God will never contradict Himself. All the seemingly contradicting verses in the Bible are clear to them that are favored by the Holy Spirit. Amen!
