Discussion for Psalms 50

    PSALM 50:16 but unto the wicked GOD saith what hast thou to do to declare MY statutes or that thou shouldest take MY covenant in thy mouth --50:17-- seeing thou hatest instruction and castest MY words behind thee
  • RonT
    The entire Bible must be read as a child, in that we must NOT think of God's actions as unjust. If they EVER appear unjust, it is because we are judging by our primitive, incomplete, short sighted systems. That's why God says He will judge. Just do as He commands... including forgiving yourself when you sin and getting immediately back to serving Him. Immerse yourself in praise, prayer and Bible.

    Pslam 16:But unto the wicked God saith, What hast thou to do to declare my statutes, or that thou shouldest take my covenant in thy mouth?

    This verse assures the believers that if we are standing right with God and obey his statues we have the right to call upon him or take his covenant in our mouth when we are facing problem and he will surely deliver us as in Psalms 15.

    I love the last verse whoso offereth praise glorify me. When the praises go up blessings come down. When we begin to glorify God, in he sends the blessings down. God truly inhabits the praises of his people. Amen God is a spirit, and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and truth.

    ST JOHN 3:17 For God send not his son into the world to condemn the world:but that the world through him might be saved.

    Sissy; you were right with your first reaction to this thought. Your Pastor wasn't exactly teaching it right! We are NOT automatically forgiven everything because we're now "saved." How is that fair for those who don't know the Lord, if they would be judged more harshly than us who do? Read the Lord's messages to the Churches in Revelation 2-3; if those that sin don't repent they will perish!
