Judgment and Salvation

Jun 25, 2023    Grayson Gilbert

While imprecatory psalms are a topic of much debate in the broader church, in the Scriptures, they are not. The judgment of God against sin is something we cannot avoid, and it is brought to us in no uncertain terms. There is an occasion for judgment, there are very real consequences to this judgment, yet there is also a joy to be found in judgment, for we see that God upholds the foundations of justice and will not let evil go unpunished. Yet the point of imprecatory psalms, ultimately, drives us to ask the question: are we the target of God's judgment, or the one pardoned from judgment in Jesus Christ?
