Psalms of the Salter: Some Thoughts on Really Living for the Lord (Psalm 53)

Psalm 53

For the director of music. According to mahalath. A maskil of David.

1 The fool says in his heart,Screen Shot 2016-08-29 at 7.12.08 AM
    “There is no God.”
They are corrupt, and their ways are vile;
    there is no one who does good.

God looks down from heaven
    on all mankind
to see if there are any who understand,
    any who seek God.
Everyone has turned away, all have become corrupt;
    there is no one who does good,
    not even one.

Do all these evildoers know nothing?

They devour my people as though eating bread;
    they never call on God.
But there they are, overwhelmed with dread,
    where there was nothing to dread.
God scattered the bones of those who attacked you;
    you put them to shame, for God despised them.

Oh, that salvation for Israel would come out of Zion!
    When God restores his people,
    let Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad!

Time for a Great Cartoon! (no snow – atheist!)

Screen Shot 2015-01-17 at 8.32.49 PM

For Calvin, all it takes for him to consider becoming an atheist is for God not to give him snow (so he can miss school). I doubt anyone who has become an atheist (or a Christian, for that matter) has done so out of purely logical considerations. Disappointments can lead one either into a life of faith or unbelief.

Screen Shot 2015-02-15 at 7.39.04 AMThe God of the Bible will be no one’s genie. He does not send snow when we demand it, nor answer our prayers as we would prefer. Life is filled with forks in the road which lead us either to unbelief or to confident faith. When we don’t choose the latter, we should throw a Calvin-like temper tantrum — at ourselves!

CARTOON MONDAY! Quite a gamble!

This summer I’ll be working on a book tentatively entitled Twelve Atheists Who Trusted Christ. Here’s a cartoon that illustrates the attitude of some when it comes to belief in God.

Questions:
1. What do you find alarming about this cartoon?
2. What would you say to this couple if you met them after the church service?
