Does the God of the Bible always tell the truth? The answer is an unqualified yes. God is true in all that He does. He is consistent with Himself. Everything that He has revealed about Himself matches up with reality.

Jesus Is The Truth

Jesus Christ, God the Son, made the claim to be the truth.

I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me (John 14:6).

He Is The Only True God

Jesus said of God the Father

Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent (John 17:3).

God Is Always Reliable

The God of the Bible is always reliable. Paul wrote

Let God be true, and every man a liar. As it is written: "So that you may be proved right when you speak and prevail when you judge" (Romans 3:4).

God is always proven to be right.

It Is Impossible For Him To Lie

Since God is a God of truth, it is impossible for Him to lie about anything. Paul wrote.

A faith and knowledge resting on the hope of eternal life, which God, who does not lie, promised before the beginning of time (Titus 1:2).

The writer to the Hebrews declared.

God did this so that, by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled to take hold of the hope offered to us may be greatly encouraged (Hebrews 6:18).

He Does Not Make Errors

Because God is a God of truth, there will be no errors in His written Word - the Bible. Paul wrote.

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man or woman of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work (2 Timothy 3:16,17)

Since all Scripture is God-breathed, we should not expect to find any errors in its revelation to us.

There Is Much Comfort In This Truth

There is much comfort for the believer concerning this attribute of God. Because God is true believers can rely on what He has revealed. God will never make any promises that He has to break. His truth will never change in the future. Nothing inconsistent will come from Him. Therefore He can be completely trusted.


God is a God of truth. Scripture says it is impossible for God to lie. Therefore when He speaks to humanity, such as in the promise recorded in the Bible, we can trust what He says. There is much comfort in the fact that His promises can always be relied upon. He will never let us down.
