What does the Bible really say about God being eternal; His existence has no beginning and no end, his being unchangeable, how the unchangeable God could repent, how God is self-existent; not only existing from eternity but exists from Himself?
We do not have to even delve into the deeper things of science in order to resolve this Bible difficulty. Sometimes I think the atheist scientist is seeking to confuse and confound the churchgoer with all of his deep science-speak. When it appears that science and the Bible are at odds with each other, it is automatically assumed that the Bible is wrong and science is right. Within this brief, easy to understand article, we give you how you can respond.

The Byzantine text family that makes up the Textus Receptus, which is behind the KJV, and the NKJV is 80-85% in agreement with the Alexandrian text family that is behind almost all modern translations. The King James Version Onlyists (KJVOists) & the Textus Receptus Onlyists (TROists) call the differences omissions in the Westcott & Hort 1881 Greek New Testament (WH) and the Nestle-Aland 28th edition Greek New Testament (NA). They would argue that many of the differences are actually additions to the original texts, which have now been restored to their original form by removing spurious interpolations? Who is correct?
3 John 1:4 Updated American Standard Version (UASV) 3 For I rejoiced greatly when the brothers came and testified to your truth, just as you are walking in the truth. 4 No greater joy do I have than this, to hear of my children walking in the truth.

You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; In the same way, let your light shine before men, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in the heavens. (Matthew 5:14, 16) Being the light of the world is pre-eminently applied to Jesus in the Scriptures (Matt. 4:16; Luke 2:32; John 1:4; John 8:12; Isa. 49:6), because he is, in the moral world, what the sun is in the natural world. The apostles, Christian ministers, and all Christians are lights of the world, because they, by their instructions and example, show what God requires, what is the condition of man, what is the way of duty, peace, and happiness the way that leads to heaven. As the city on the hill, Christians must be seen; they ought to be holy, harmless, and undefiled.
