Biblical truth standing on its spiritual head to get our eternal attention.

Hebrews 13:8 – Jesus Same, Methods Different

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8). That passage is used – misused – to prove anything the advocate wants. For example: 1) if God once provided man with miraculous ability then God always provides man with miraculous ability; 2) if God once approved of worshipping with instruments then God always approves of worshipping with instruments. To rightfully prove Hebews 13:8 refers to God’s character and not methods is simple: Did God once approve of sacrificing animals as part of a tabernacle? Yes. Did He change the tabernacle to a temple? Yes. Did He change the physical temple to a spiritual temple? Yes. Did He change from animal sacrifices to the sacrifice of His Son? Yes. God frequently changes methods. I don’t know too many humans made from clay or ribs today, do you?
