Multiple points made in yesterday’s post about professor Daniel I. Block’s essay have been running through my head. The major one is one I’ve pondered before but am again relishing.
Simply, the truth recorded in Torah has not and cannot change. When יהיה said to keep His feasts forever (4x in Lev. 23), that is unchanging truth. When יהיה said to keep the seventh-day Sabbath forever (Ex. 31:16-17), that is unchanging truth. It can’t change, else He is a liar, and He cannot lie (Titus 1:2).
Therefore, if someone tells you these have changed, that person is lying. Period. (Now, they may be doing so in ignorance as I once was, but it is still lying.) Gently correct them with this thought: Does (or, can) God lie? Concerning the Torah, He says it is truth and everlasting righteousness.
