The Unchanging Nature of God

“Do not take me away, O my God, in the midst of my days; your years go on through all generations. In the beginning you laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands. They will perish, but you remain; they will all wear out like a garment. Like clothing you will change them and they will be discarded. But you remain the same, and your years will never end.”Psalm 102:24-27

Here is a reminder to us that all things as we know them here are earth will eventually decay and go away. Though we may be inclined to build some sort of lasting empire or legacy of earthly things, it will eventually be stripped away, leaving only God's original legacy.

I think the most important part of this passage is found near the end – “But you remain the same”. Once again, I have to make the observation that God simply does not change – neither His principles nor His very nature. He is not a God who changes with the times, such as man does. So why do we see whole religions amending their doctrines to more reflect the modern world? Isn't it obvious from verses like this that God's law is unchangeable, regardless of where our society is in the downhill slide of moral decay?
