Is our God Binary?

Firstly I will clarify my understanding of the meaning of the word ‘Binary’. I consider that binary is a system of two options; black or white, on or off, 1 or zero for example.
I recently had an interesting conversation with someone whose intellect I respect but who challenged my view of scripture as infallible and further conversational exploration resulted in the opinion that I am too binary and that God, simply, is not.
Oh really? I am considered radical? I had some serious food for thought right here.
Is this true or is this to support our individualistic and autonomously driven society’s apparent need for fluidity in all things, especially things that were previously considered solid in nature, such as your gender at birth?
Sadly the church is unable to stand clear of the worldly view and is under the same pressure or metamorphosis, depending on your point of view. There are currently radical shifts of opinion within established denominations that are causing more than cracks and fissures in the theological foundations; splits and separations are happening, as I write this, to many different and mainstream churches.
Additionally, I must ask, are we attempting to redefine the concept and the definition of sin? Do we believe that the passage of time allows us to ‘move on’ and to rewrite the code of what is acceptable in the sight of, or in the house of, our Holy God?
I would expect non-believers to campaign for what they believe is fair, moral and acceptable behaviour and to shift mainstream opinions further and further away from our western Judeo-Christian heritage.
However, the sheer numbers of those professing belief in Christianity, surely by definition, believers and followers of Christ, who are also moving to redefine what is acceptable in the eyes of the Lord, is astounding to me.
So, my equilibrium rocked by a respected brother, I turn, as always, to what does the Bible say?
The Book of Psalms 119 verse 89
Forever, O LORD, your word
is firmly fixed in the heavens.
Also, from the New Testament we are told;
The Book of Hebrews Chapter 13 Verse 8
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.
The bible shows us clearly that our self-focus and need to define our own rules and morality is nothing new.
It also shows through the history of the Israelites and the prophetic scripture foretelling the future, the outcomes of such rebellion.
Please read and re-read diligently the inspired Word of God and then prayerfully and spiritually decide where you want to stand regarding the changes that occurring within the church right now. Now, these changes truly are radical!
