The Fool

The Fool has said in his heart, “There is no God.”      (Psalm 14:1).

How do we know that he is a fool?

Simple. A fool speaks as if he has the answer to a question to which he cannot have an answer. No man knows enough to make that statement. You would have to be everywhere at the same time to reach that conclusion. Otherwise, God might be just one jump ahead of him.

But to be everywhere at once is to be God! And the strangest part of it is that he isn’t just boasting, showing off or something. He believes it—partially, at least—and is trying to fully convince himself that it is really true.

Say, fool—will you come to your senses? When you do, it is time to find out about the Salvation that is in Christ Jesus. If you need help, let us know.


The fool has said in his heart, God does not exist      (HCSB)

He may not say it out loud, but he’s a fool anyway. What makes him a “fool?” The simple fact that—like every other fool—he claims to know more than he is capable of knowing. How can he know here is no God?  God may be exactly the place where he looked for him last, but he is no longer there!

The fool is one, wherefore who tells himself that for which he has no basis in fact.

Are you a fool?
