Yes, it is His assurances that tell me I can count on His statements and His
Laws - of any kind.

However, I am not the first to use this concept of the need for God to be
consistent in order to be God.

(Alma 42:13.)



13 Therefore, according to justice, the plan of redemption could not be
brought about, only on conditions of repentance of men in this probationary
state, yea, this preparatory state; for except it were for these conditions,
mercy could not take effect except it should destroy the work of justice.
Now the work of justice could not be destroyed; if so, God would cease to be
God.



(Mormon 9:19.)



19 And if there were miracles wrought then, why has God ceased to be a God
of miracles and yet be an unchangeable Being? And behold, I say unto you he
changeth not; if so he would cease to be God; and he ceaseth not to be God,
and is a God of miracles.


It is important that I say that I, with you, believe this is just not a
realistic concern.

George
