God's Unchanging Law


The moral law of God as contained in the Ten Commandments is alive and enforceable today in our 21st century era of moral relativism. This statement is anathema to our culture and to those who oppose any moral absolutes.  The Apostle Paul tells us in chapter one in the book of Romans that a society can apostate and slide into a black hole of apostasy when God's law is pushed to the side and marginalized.

But what about an individual? can a person ignore the moral law of God without suffering the same fate? Can any person harden their heart and sear their own conscience without also sliding down the black hole of nothingness?

We as Christians know that the whole world system is directed and under the power and influence of Satan (Ephesians 2:2). He has blinded the minds of the lost (2 Corinthians 4:4). He works to keep unbelievers in spiritual darkness.

This wold's system with all of its philosophies, ideologies, and religions are under the direction of the prince of the power of the air...Satan. As we analyze why moral relativism is alive and well in the 21st century we don't have to look to far...the deceiver and the enemy of God is at work in our educational systems, in our governments, and yes, even in our churches.

But for God's people the moral law of God is a lamp to their feet and a light for their paths Psalm (119:105). The moral law of God as contained in the Ten Commandments is an absolute standard of morality...it will never change or equivocate....this is where the child of God plants his flag...in God's unchanging moral law.

Listen to a wise man from the past...one of our former presidents on the importance of God's moral law:


“The fundamental basis of this nation’s laws was given to Moses on the Mount…If we don’t have a proper fundamental moral background, we will finally end up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the State.”
Harry S. Truman

It is reassuring for the believer to know that God is not changing his mind from generation to generation. His law is fixed and permanent.

Here's another voice from the past on the surety and steadfastness of God's moral law:

“Opinions alter, manners change, creeds rise and fall, but the moral law is written on the tablets of eternity.”
John Emerich Edward Dalberg-Acton

I would encourage the believer to go back to the moral law of God and devour it, love it, nurture it, and thank God for it. God's law is good, clean, pure, and holy.
