“People knew God perfectly well, but when they didn’t treat him like God, refusing to worship him, they trivialized themselves into silliness and confusion so that there was neither sense nor direction left in their lives.


Key Points:

Only by fully understanding the “Bad News” can we fully appreciate the “Good News.”

  1. Idolatry is the first level of the downward spiral, followed by sexual immorality, then wickedness.
  2. Humanity appears constantly drawn to this spiral
  3. Even King David, a “man after God’s own heart” is snared in this spiral
  4. Psalm 51 reminds us that there is hope in the grace of God and in Jesus.
