Handout: Psalm 51: Sin, Practicality of Condemnation, Perfection, Original Sin, and Conscience

 

Summary:

This poignant psalm reaches so deeply into our humanity and our relationship with God that it provokes a wide range of discussion on core doctrinal issues.  In tonight's study, we touch on the nature of sin and how God is justified and entirely practical to condemn us even if sin is the way we are.  We discuss how important it is to keep our sins in mind especially as we grow toward perfection and how God's willingness to extend grace at every moment to support our perfection inspires us to see the magnitude of His love in every moment of our lives.  We follow with a discussion of original sin and sanctifying grace pointing out that, if we do not understand these doctrines, we do not understand salvation.

In our second half, we discuss the inviolability of conscience but also its need to be formed and to admit that our consciences may not be right.
