A Sermon on Psalms 50:1-23Read more
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.
About Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones
Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones (1899-1981) was a Welsh evangelical minister who preached and taught in the Reformed tradition. His principal ministry was at Westminster Chapel, in central London, from 1939-1968, where he delivered multi-year expositions on books of the bible such as Romans, Ephesians and the Gospel of John. In addition to the MLJ Trust’s collection of 1,600 of these sermons in audio format, most of these great sermon series are available in book form (including a 14 volume collection of the Romans sermons), as are other series such as "Spiritual Depression", "Studies in the Sermon on the Mount" and "Great Biblical Doctrines". He is considered by many evangelical leaders today to be an authority on biblical truth and the sufficiency of Scripture.
