Exodus 32:14 Genesis 6:6 Jonah 3:10 Jonah 4:11 these are but a few of many passages in the bible where god as changed his mind clearly you people who call yourself religious have no idea what your own holy book says.
After all ... He changed from only offering Heaven to the Jews, to offering it to anybody who accepts Jesus as being the sacrifice for their sins. That also shows that He changed His Mind, in what an acceptable sacrifice for sin was - and that individual sacrifices weren't necessary.
I am a little skittish about answering this one....God is perfect. When the Israelites were worshiping the statue of the golden calf, God wanted to wipe them out. However, Moses 'confenced' him to change his mind.
Yes, God has changed his mind before. In Exodus 32: 9-14, he was basically sick of how corrupt the Israelites had become. So He told Moses that He was going to destroy them. However, Moses prayed to God that He not bring disaster upon the Israelites, to remember His servants Abraham, Isaac and Israel...The the Lord relented and did not bring on His people the disaster He had threatened.

God does say, on occasion that "If you don't repent, then I will..." So His answer or statement could be either way, depending on how man reacts to his command. However - the Promises he makes to each one of us personally will never be changed - we will ALWAYS be His, because no one can take us out of His hand. And even tho' at times we may feel like everything's dark and we're falling into a pit, we'll only go but so far down, BECAUSE - underneath are those everlasting arms that will save us. And not only that - even when everything's dark, GOD can still see, because darkness is like light to Him. How wonderful He is to those He calls His own!
Do we have still any proof (faith is not a proof, it's wishful thinking), whatsoever, that there is a god indeed? Must you not first establish the fact that a god exist beyond any reasonable doubt before venturing into the characteristics of his mind?
Even if the proof of god is assumed (leaving aside that indispensable impossibility), far from being changeable or unchangeable, you really don't expect a being without "body, part and passion" to have a mind at all; do you!!
From our human vantage point it is clear that God "changes his mind". There are examples of this in the Old Testament and the New Testament tells of how God's final judgement will come (can be seen as changing His mind from mercy to raw justice). There is a theological issue regarding what it means that "God has a mind", but let's just skip that part for now. Lol There is no need to have a cynical outlook on the fact that God "changes" His mind. It's simply due to the fact that God is dynamically involved with us and since we have a will that can oppose God's best for us then He may invariably "change" what He will do. This in now way changes God in His perfect state nor does it change His intention and design for creation. It may be more true to think of it as God responds dynamically to us from His unchanging self... It's us that really are the one's that change.
Numbers 23.19, God is not a man, that He should lie, or a son of man, that He should change His mind.
Ex 32.14 is telling of how merciful He is with His ppl, He didn't bring on a horrible judgement on them cause Moses stood in the gap and prayed, "Lord spare them"...
Gen 6.6 says that He was sorry that He ever made man cause of their atrocious sins, man can grieve the heart of God U know!
U don't even realize how much grace He has on U for your unbelief in Him, I was very bad in my ways and should or could have been dead by now but He was so merciful with cause I'm sure He has a plan for me, I hope that He will give U a revelation of who He really is!
Yes he does this is just one instance were he changed his mind. Read ====================When God saw what they had done and how they had put a stop to their evil ways, he changed his mind and did not carry out the destruction he had threatened. (Jonah 3:10 NLT)
Honestly, I'm not sure. God is the Alpha and Omega and everything in between, yet I think prayer changes things. Maybe He causes that prayer. But what about free will. I'll let you know when I'm done debating this with myself.
6 “For I am the Lord, I do not change; Therefore you are not consumed, O sons of Jacob.
Anyone who thinks God changes better be worried but there would be nothing stopping Him from changing His mind about your Savation. God doesn't and can't break His promises.
7 Remember those who rule over you, who have spoken the word of God to you, whose faith follow, considering the outcome of their conduct. 8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. 9 Do not be carried about with various and strange doctrines. For it is good that the heart be established by grace, not with foods which have not profited those who have been occupied with them.
For those who accept the literal interpretation of the creation story, God tacitly declared incest to be okay in order to get things going, then later made it a sin. He was also once in favor of executing homosexuals, but he supposedly no longer sanctions that method of dealing with them.
I don't believe. That is my truth, and you don't have to like it. However, I cannot believe some of the answers I've read.. That God doesn't change his mind.. WHAT? If there were actually some omniscient deity, it would be so far beyond our ability to comprehend as to be a joke. And people are PERSONIFYING this deity? Imbuing it with human traits? Is god a cat person or a dog person? I thought it was bad for those who speak for and judge in place of, their god..
Sometimes. But it's always for a good reason. He changed his mind about destroying the world because Christ offered to pay for our sins. God always makes the best decision in the end he just usually takes some time to think about it.
