The Book of Psalms
The sinner thinks God is like himself. He believes God will simply forget his sin. He assumes God will forget it and not deal with it. Does God overlook our sin? Is He not the solemn judge of the heavens and earth? The atheist outright rejects this God. His life is lived accordingly with no contradiction. The atheist believes there is no God and his actions mirror those beliefs. In this sermon, Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones sets forth to express how there is a man worse than the atheist: the man who claims to believe in God yet lives his life as if there is no God. Exploring Psalm 50:1-23, he explains that this man believes that God is like himself. He believes that God will not deal with sin. This man ignores God’s wrath. He denies God’s judgement, assuming there is no hell. He minimizes his own sin. His error is not simply doctrinal deficiency. This man has made a god in his own image. On the contrary, God wants us to know who He truly is. Listen as Dr. Lloyd-Jones calls the hearer to rightly know God and see His salvation so that we may live out lives praising and glorifying His name.
