    God is the word and his word is true, as you read the Bible you see and know his word, you cannot pollute it to your own meaning but as what he has spoken, he promised to save us from satin , as adam and eve followed a false teacher, he gave us his son to die on that tree so we may be redeemed again in the glory of God, there is know greater love then his Amen
  • Marilyn
    I am proud to read this chapter because I made a chart based on numbers 23:19.
    I read this everyday and whenever I look at the chart. God is not a man , that He
    should lie, neither the Son of Man that He should repent: hath He said , and shall
    He not do it? Or hath He spoken and shall He not make it good? This "blesses" my
    heart to know that my source is God and not man.
  • Shirley j ashley
    Shirley!!! What ever God think becomes the truth. This is why he can not lie. He is the word and the word is God!!!
  • Michael Frye
    God cannot lie! To lie and to bare false testimony is from the Evil one. God is Truth God is the Light God is Holy. He is the Holy of Holy. Their is no Sin in God, Their is no Darkness only Light which Smothers Darkness. God is Light God is Truth God is all that's Good.
  • A disciple
    Robert; God cannot lie as He cannot sin because there is no unrighteousness in Him. His Divine Nature has no part dark or anything in His character that can be tempted with evil. Lying and perversion came out of the father of lies who has never stood in the truth. Thus it is that the Lord Jesus said, All they who are of the truth will hear my voice. And so then by our faith He counts us righteous.
  • Robert
    Vs 2 THE STATEMENT IS THAT GOD CANNOT LIE,DOES THAT MEAN THAT HE IS INCAPABLE OF LIEING REFUSES TO LIE OR IS RESTRICTED FROM LYING. WOULD THE WORD"CANNOT" BE BETTER TRANSLATED "DOES NOT"? THIS QUESTION WAS PRESENTED TO ME WITH THE ADDENDUM "GOD IS ALL POWERFUL AND CAN DO WHATEVER HE WANTS SO WHY CAN'T HE LIE". IT WAS AN HONEST QUESTION NOT A CHALENGE
