Wendy

And that question is, is there anything that God can’t do?

Tina

Yes. He can’t lie.

Jay

It’s a good one. If you find a verse for that, I will.

Tina

There is a verse that says that I don’t have to think of it.

Jay

And then I have one. It’s James 113. And maybe I could put up while you find that verse go for it. So James 113 says, Let no one say he is tempted or let no one say when he attempted, I’m tempted of God, for God cannot be tempted. And God he himself does not tempt anyone.

Wendy

God cannot be tempted by evil.

Jay

Yeah. You don’t hear about being tempted by good, but yeah, he can’t be tempted. And he doesn’t tempt people. So that’s one thing he doesn’t or can’t do, Amen.

Tina

And yeah, Titus 1:2 says in hope of eternal life, which God who cannot lie promised before time began. So again, God can’t lie and he can’t fail. And actually, you want to see a bunch of things that God doesn’t do is if you go to 1 Corinthians 13, the love chapter. And if you plug in the fact that 1 John 4:8 says God is love. And if you put in love is patient. Love is kind. That means God is patient. God is kind. God doesn’t delight in evil, but delights in the truth. And it says that in one Corinthians 13, that love never fails. And I love plugging in God’s name right there because I know God never fails. He can’t. He can’t lie. His promises are always sure.

Jay

Yeah. Just talk about that. If God is love, he can’t be anything but love. And so you go back to doctrines like Doctor of eternal Hell. How could that be reconciled with a God whose love God can’t do that? He literally cannot not just torture people forever and ever. That’s contrary to exactly who he is.

Tina

And it makes no sense when it says the wicked will perish. They’ll die, they’ll be done. And there will be no more Obadiah says it will be as though they never were. How does that make sense if they still are, they’re just burning. We got to come with this.

Tina

And it makes me sad, because honestly, when you go back to the history of why did this doctrine come up? It’s because in the Dark Ages, they wanted people to not have Bibles, to not know the truth, but to only be spoon fed these versions of the Bible where they said God is going to bring you forever so they could control and they could manipulate people into submitting to whatever it is that these false churches were trying to make them do. And so that’s just it’s terrible. It’s really sad. And that’s why you see the Protestant Reformation come about and start saying, hey, let’s start thinking about the Bible. Let’s talk about it. And let’s be rational with it.

Jay

Exactly. Amen.
