Can God Contradict the Bible?

State of Theology 2022

Part 9


This is Ken Ham, inviting your family to visit our massive Noah’s Ark in Kentucky.


According to a recent survey, nearly one in three so-called Evangelicals in the US believe “The Holy Spirit can tell me to do something which is forbidden in the Bible.”

But God can’t contradict himself! God has given us his perfect Word as the ultimate authority for our lives. It’s God’s Word that tells us what the holy God expects from us—and what his standard is. And that standard is perfection!

God the Holy Spirit—and yes, the Holy Spirit is God—will never tell someone to do something that contradicts God’s Word. God cannot deny himself. If someone claims God’s told them to do something that goes against his Word, they aren’t hearing from God!
