God’s consistency

“We have to deny or disown everything within us which is false to our true humanity… It is in order to be our true selves that we have to deny ourselves; it is because God is never other than his true Self that He cannot and will not deny Himself… He cannot repudiate any part of Himself, because He is perfect.  He cannot contradict Himself… He is always Himself and never inconsistent.  If He were ever to behave ‘uncharacteristically’, in a way that is out of character with Himself, He would cease to be God, and the world would be thrown into moral confusion.  No, God is God; He never deviates one iota, even one tiny hair’s breath, from being entirely Himself.”

John Stott, The Cross of Christ
