THE FOOL

“The fool has said in his heart, ‘There is no God.’ They are corrupt, they have committed abominable deeds; There is no one who does good.” – Psalms 14:1

The Bible reveals here that anyone who states that there is no God is a fool.  Why would the Bible make such a bold, potentially offensive, proclamation?  We will look at three reasons that explain why anyone who refuses to acknowledge the King of Kings is considered to be a fool.

First, in Romans, Paul writes, “For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse. For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools.”  The evidence of creation all around shows His handiwork.  To believe that everything happened by accident, void of any kind of design is illogical.

Consider the moon, and its function for planet earth.  Our planet’s surface is two-thirds water.  We know that water, when it does not move, becomes stagnant, and it becomes a breeding ground for mosquitos and other insects.  Could you imagine our planet covered with two-thirds stagnant water?  That is why God put the moon in orbit, not only to be a light at night, but also to provide a gravitational pull that causes the tides so that the water will not go stagnant!

The second reason the Scripture can make this bold claim is that, logically speaking, morals must have come from God.  The term “morals” has been defined as “pertaining to, or concerned with the principles or rules of right conduct or the distinction between right and wrong; ethical.”  In order to have a right and just set of rules, they would have to be devised and created by one who is the epitome of morality and perfection.

Having a member of the human race set rules of morality would be faulty, because mankind is faulty.  Many people would have a problem with murder, but there are a few who don’t.  So if one of the ones who doesn’t have a problem with committing murder sets up the rules of moral law, it would be reasonable to expect that they would not make any rules against it.  The same could be true in regards to stealing and lying.  What about adultery?  What about honoring and obeying your parents?  In order to have a perfect set of moral rules, they would have to be devised by one who is perfect.  The Bible tells us that God is holy, which means that He is pure and perfect.  So He would have the absolute ability and right to decide on morals.

Last, the naturalistic argument of first cause for the universe is folly for one refuses to acknowledge the existence of God and accept the Big Bang Theory.  The Big Bang Theory very basically says that all matter came from a singularity, a super-dense collection of all matter in the universe that was so small it would fit in the ballpoint of a pen.  The singularity then became super-heated so that it exploded and the universe came into existence.  This begs the question, where did the singularity come from?  Since it is matter, then it cannot have an eternal existence, so we must have an answer to the question; from where did the singularity originate?  In other words, what is its first cause?  The Word of God proclaims that God is spirit, not matter, and that He has existed in eternity past, hence, He is our first cause.

But let us not only examine the one who outright verbalizes that God does not exist, but the one who denies that God exists with their life.  We may intellectually believe that God is God, but do our actions declare our belief in God?  Are we witnessing daily to people that God is the only path to eternal life?  Not just some namby-pamby, “I live a good life that people see” kind of testimony, but do we share Him with people verbally, as Jesus commanded?  This is where the rubber meets the road, in our heart.

The fool has said in his heart there is no God.
