What, more than all else, proves the perpetuity and immutability of the law of God?


"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should
not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3: 16. "Christ died for our sins." 1 Cor. 15: 3.
NOTE. - Could the law have been abolished, and sin been disposed of in this way, Christ need not
have come and died for our sins. The gift of Christ, therefore, more than all else, proves the immutability of
the law of God. Christ must come and die, and satisfy the claims of the law, or the world must perish. The
law could not give way. Says Spurgeon in his sermon on "The Perpetuity of the Law of God": "Our Lord
Jesus Christ gave a greater vindication of the law by dying because it had been broken than all the lost can
ever give by their miseries." The fact that the law is to be the standard in the judgment is another proof of
its enduring nature. See Eccl. 12. 13, 14; James 2: 8-12.
