anybody’s fool

Psalm 53:1 (JDV)

Psalm 53:1 The fool says in his heart, “There’s no God.” They are corrupt, and they do repulsive things. There is no one who does good.

anybody’s fool

Once you divorce yourself from the existence of God, and jettison accountability to him, you necessarily make wrong decisions and everything you do is corrupted. Taking the wrong road never gets you to where you want to be. Doing actual good is no longer possible.

That is why the Bible calls the atheist a fool. In one fell swoop, the person who rejects God had condemned himself to a lifetime of wrong choices, and a legacy of corruption and repulsive acts.

That is not to say that believers cannot make wrong choices. We absolutely do. But we have made the choice that ultimately matters most. As long as we stay with God, we have hope for a bit of his light shining through our darkness. We also have hope for restoration and redemption. But without God, there can be no light, no hope.

Lord, give us all the wisdom to acknowledge your existence. We do not want to be anybody’s fool.
