Immutability

Immutability means unchangeable.  It is the divine attribute of unchangeableness.  God said in Exodus 3:14, "I AM that I AM"; signifying his eternal sameness and his sovereignty.  He cannot change his moral character, his love, his omniscience, omnipresence, omnipotence, etc.  God is "From everlasting to everlasting," (Psalm 90:2).

Immutability does not mean that God does not vary.  The incarnation is an example of variation.  Also, God's attitude toward a person is changed when the person becomes a Christian.  For example, the enmity between God and man is removed (Rom. 5:10).

Mormonism denies the immutability of God.  It says that God was not always God, that he was a man on another planet who became a God (Mormon Doctrine, by Bruce McConkie, p. 321).
