What fools say
Psalm 14:1 “The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God.”
That’s a pretty blunt accusation – that a person who says there is no God, is a fool. I believe some of you will be offended by reading this. Our modern overly-sensitive ears are startled when language like this is used. However, when the Bible speaks of “fools” and “foolishness” it isn’t engaging in adolescent name calling. Instead, the word “fool” is used to describe a person who is in a state of moral and intellectual dullness. They do not see, hear or understand Spiritual things. They speak of spiritual things which they cannot know or understand and denounce them loudly and frequently.
These fools say there is no God because they cannot prove God exists. They cannot see, hear or understand when God moves in their lives and they attribute these things to anything other than God (including “Coincidences”). A child falls from a window 10 floors above and not a bone is broken. This is “Luck” or “A Coincidence” or they will even go so far as to deny that it actually happened at all.
By the time they realize their mistakes, it could be too late for them to repent of their foolishness.
