Software Developer, part-time pastor, and I raise chickens. Who can't love a chicken?

For Christianity.stackexchange.com, my religious background:

  • Grew up in a Protestant, evangelical, nondenominational "Bible Church" (-1990)
  • earned a M.Div at a Baptist Seminary (2008) and pastored a very small Baptist church (2004 - 2008)
  • Served in an Episcopal Church, and yes I did that site. (2008 - 2013)
  • Now attending a Baptist church that has a true passion for breaking down the barriers of church so as to focus on the original mission of the church - namely to bring Jesus to a dying world.

comment If God is unable to change, why did he (after the Flood)?
The one viable question I see is this: "If God is all-knowing and unable to change, why does he change his mind after the Flood?" Everything else is simply too much. You are asking for a book and a lifetime's work - or else, you're ranting.

Note, I realize that this claim is about a shrine in Oman, not Japan, but the answer covers the same ground.

Welcome to C.SE. I'd invite you to see how we are different. I'm having difficulty seeing how this actually answers the question.

d) You've gone from impassability (that God doesn't change) to questioning original sin - Not that I mind the question, but I do mind bringing up so many in a single question. This question reads like a rant, not a request to get real info.

Um, (a)What mistakes other than the single one mentioned? When you bring up the correct Exodus one, I'll listen. (b) Why does God change? How do you know it isn't people's perception of God that changes? c) Who preaches that our God will not "change for us"?

Welcome to C.SE, and I encourage you to find out how we are different than other forums. This is the beginning of a good answer - I like that you are sourcing the doctrine to others, but it would be helpful if you could contextualize these resources.
