The God Who Is Not Like Us: Why We Need the Doctrine of Divine Immutability

Speakers: Kevin DeYoung Year: 2018 Session: Main Session

God’s people are called to be distinct from the world because God—in the perfect life of the Trinity—is distinct from the world. In a survey of various biblical and historical texts, Kevin DeYoung demonstrates how the perfection of divine immutability sets the Creator apart from his creation. The saints are eternally secure trusting in the promises of their unchanging God.
