God’s law cannot be changed, because it is a transcript of His character. The same words in Scripture that describe God also describe His law. Here is a comparison between God and His law:

Characteristics: God Is: The Law Is:
GOOD Luke 18:19 Romans 7:12
HOLY Isaiah 5:16 Romans 7:12
JUST Deuteronomy 32:4 Romans 7:12
PERFECT Matthew 5:48 Psalms 19:7
LOVE 1 John 4:8 Romans 13:10
RIGHTEOUS Exodus 9:27 Psalms 19:9
TRUTH Deuteronomy 32:4 Psalms 119:142,151
PURE 1 John 3:3 Psalms 19:8
SPIRITUAL John 4:24 Romans 7:14
UNCHANGEABLE Malachi 3:6 Matthew 5:18
ETERNAL Genesis 21:33 Psalms 111:7,8


Earthy kings like Herod, Ahasuerus, and Darius made laws they later wanted to change but could not. If the laws of earthly kings were unchangeable, how could the God’s law be changed?

The Ten Commandment law can never be changed. It is as permanent as God Himself. Jesus said, “And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass away than for one tittle of the law to fail” (Luke 16:17); “My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips” (Psalms 89:34); “All his commandments are sure. They stand fast for ever and ever” (Psalms 111:7, 8); “For I am the Lord, I change not” (Malachi 3:6).

Jesus came to reveal to men the character of His Father. He is therefore the law demonstrated. If men wish to order their lives in harmony with the law of God, they must look to Jesus and copy His life. The transformation of men’s characters after the divine character is the great purpose of the plan of salvation.

The law reveals the character of God and of Christ; the plan of salvation provides the enabling grace for the attainment of every virtue. God created us to enjoy life with all of its functions and God’s law is the road map that points out the right way to find this ultimate happiness.
