Absolutes

In a world where it seems that the only thing that counts is one's personal values and how one feels about an issue, does the Bible speak about absolutes? It's in the Bible, Psalm 111:4, 7, 8, NIV. "The Lord is gracious and compassionate. The works of his hands are faithful and just; all his precepts are trustworthy. They are steadfast for ever and ever, done in faithfulness and uprightness.

Does God ever change? It's in the Bible, Malachi 3:6, NKJV. "For I am the Lord, I do not changeĀ…"

Is there such a thing as truth? It's in the Bible, John 17:17, NKJV. "Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth."

God's Word does not change. It's in the Bible, Psalm 93:5, NRSV. "Your decrees are very sure; holiness befits your house, O Lord, forevermore."

Won't time change God's Word and meaning? It's in the Bible, Matthew 24:35, NKJV. "Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away."

When the Day of Judgment comes, God's absolute, unchangeable law will judge everyone. It's in the Bible (James 2:10-12, NKJV):
"For whoever shall keep the whole law, and yet stumble in one point, he is guilty of all. For He who said, 'Do not commit adultery,' also said, 'Do not murder.' Now if you do not commit adultery, but you do murder, you have become a transgressor of the law. So speak and so do as those who will be judged by the law of liberty."

God will hold everyone accountable because of the absolutes He has given in His law. It's in the Bible, Romans 2:6, 11, NKJV. "Who will render to each one according to his deeds. For there is no partiality with God."
