Discussion for Psalms 119:104

  • verse 104: There is no way to ascertain what is right or wrong without coming to scripture. That's exactly what's going on in higher learning where God has no place in their thinking. Man on his best day could not know perfectly right without the counsel of God. 1 Cor. 2 14 states to the natural man, or the unsaved man, the things of God are foolishness, because the things of God are only understood by the help of the Holy Spirit, which they lack. Information that something is wrong isn't enough, because there are things that man knows that are intrinsically wrong, and that is by his Godgiven conscience, but he still does them. David shows the difference. David desired the truth to avoid the lie, and he found that in the law. With that came a desire to hate the every false way.
