Here is a link to my interview on Issues Etc. from last night on Psalm Six. It does raise lots of interesting questions. One of the questions it raises is this: does God hate me or love me? We often will hear the phrase “God hates the sin but loves the sinner.” I’m not so sure about that. It think it would be pretty hard in the Scriptures to separate God’s righteous hatred for sin from his righteous hatred for the sinner.
The point, however, is that this is not the final word. God takes out His just punishment on Jesus at the cross. God does not deal with me according to his anger anymore (Ps. 6:1) but he deals with me according to His graciousness (Ps. 6:2). If we forget or ignore one, we lose the whole enchilada.
Anyway, there’s my interview. Enjoy!
