    The inscription of Psalm 8 states "To the choirmaster: according to the Gittith." The word Gittith means a winepress but also designates a stringed instrument which was shaped like a winepress. The Greeks took the word and the instrument which it represented and called it a kithara and from that comes the Spanish guitarria and from that the English guitar. We are therefore, in the prophetic succession when we have a guitar accompaniment to these psalms. They were designed to be sung to the music of a guitar.

    Tonight we are dealing with man and the fall of man. This is a combination of two very important scriptural truths. Usually, they represent two quite distinct areas of theological study; that is, the doctrine of who man is and how he functions, and then the effect of sin. We are combining those in Doctrinal Statement number three, which reads:

    Concerning Man and His Need

    “We believe that man was created in the image of God, but because of Adam’s sin that image was damaged, and that all human beings are now born with a sinful nature, are unable to function in moral responsibility before God, and need a spiritual regeneration before they can become what they were meant to be.”
