Does God make mistakes?

If  I assert that God makes mistakes . . . then where do I plan on spending eternity?

I think in our heart of hearts we all know God does not make mistakes, because, if this was possible, our universe would be nothing more than a crumpled wad of paper.  Even with the infliction of our sin on our universe, we still have an unspoken sense of the deep beauty poured into its foundations.

More than that, though . . . we know of ourselves . . . we were not created to be sinners.  Our longing for a utopia is no coincidence; we fumble through the dark corridors of corruption, hoping to find the door that opens perfection back up to us.  And yet, at the same time, we know that door is locked forever from sinners.

Our only choice, then, is to place our hope in our Creator, who can make right what we have made wrong . . . or to blame Him for the mess we have made and live forever in the never-ending cellars of consequence.

For Jesus is the one referred to in the Scriptures, where it says,

‘The stone that you builders rejected

has now become the cornerstone.’

There is salvation in no one else! God has given no other name under heaven by which we must be saved.” (Acts 4:11-12, NLT)
