We like to say when we’ve made a mistake or things did not work the way we intended: “Well, we are only human!” That idea makes us comfortable with the situation and even excuses us from trying to solve the problem again. What exactly do we mean when we say,” We are only human!”?
Is there someone or something we know about that doesn’t make mistakes? Could it be some other creature like lions, tigers or bears, or maybe an elephant? No, we see them making mistakes as they get trapped, hunted, and killed. We even say, “that dog barks funny” or, “that cow is making a strange mooing sound”, indicating that we think they may be not doing their thing just right.
The truth of the matter is that God is the only one who doesn’t make mistakes. Where did that idea come from? It seems to be part of our inner knowledge, but The Bible has many examples indicating that God does not make mistakes or lies, but is true to his word. It begins with the story of creation and continues on throughout the rest of the Bible.
Genesis 1:1 begins, “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth”, and Genesis1:31 states, “and God saw everything He had made, and behold, it was very good”. That even includes us because the Bible goes on to say in Genesis1:27 “God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.”
So we know where our knowledge of right and wrong comes from; God gave it to us; The Bible tells us so.
