God Can’t Lie

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

(Titus 1:2) KJV

What are the logical implications of “God can’t lie?” Total destruction of the mainstream science paradigm (SciPop). Figuratively speaking we’re going to do to SciPop what Samson did in Lehi with the donkey’s jawbone.

The sum of your word is truth, and every one of your righteous rules endures forever.

(Psalms 119:160) ESV

We all have the same evidence. Our choice of paradigm determines what we think it’s evidence of.

Logical Implications of “God Can’t Lie”

  1. IF God can’t lie
    • AND he promised that His Word is true (Psalms 119:160),
    • AND that not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law (Matthew 5:18),
      • THEN the Bible is true.
  2. IF the Bible is true
    • BUT mainstream science (SciPop) has a narrative for human origins which is different,
      • THEN SciPop is wrong.
  3. IF SciPop is wrong
    • THEN how is it wrong?
    • The errors in SciPop reasoning must be identified and accounted for.

For truly, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law until all is accomplished.

(Matthew 5:18) ESV

Faith is believing in something that you can’t see, because of evidence.

Proving that God Can’t Lie

And out of the ground the LORD God made to spring up every tree that is pleasant to the sight and good for food. The tree of life was in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

(Genesis 2:9) ESV

We can prove that God can’t lie with a simple example. The universe was created in a corrupted state in order to manifest free will. Free will means that we can choose to be evil if we want to. Evil had to exist, and so the universe had to be created in such a way that evil is possible. God can’t lie, he has no reason to, so the tree of knowledge was God’s righteousness, it was God being honest about the state of creation.

In a sense, the command: do not eat of the fruit of the tree, was the first law. Sin isn’t imputed when there’s no law.

The universe was corrupted but, on the sixth day of creation, humanity wasn’t. Adam and Eve were pure. They also had to fall in order for the universe to complete its purpose. The thing is, the Lord God couldn’t make them fall, that would defeat his purpose. Humanity had to fall by itself, as a consequence of having free will and making a wrong choice.

When Adam and Eve ate the fruit of the tree of knowledge they didn’t corrupt creation, their eyes were opened and they saw that it was already corrupted. We were condemned and could now be redeemed, the ultimate goal.

The purpose of creation is to bring about the permanent physical separation of light from darkness, day from night, good from evil.
