What do fools say?

What do fools say? “There is No God.”

What do fools say? It’s an important question. The answer, they say, “There is no God.” This kind of person is corrupt, and the things they do in their lives are evil and wicked. Not one of them does good. God sees everyone. He is always looking down from heaven, upon the entire human race. No one escapes His notice. He is looking to see “who is it that has an understanding mind and heart, and who is seeking after God.”

Sadly, no one is. All men are sinners by birth, and they become corrupt as they grow up. Not one of them is genuinely doing good. Not one of them. What an indictment of the human race. We forget that all men don’t become sinners, but are born sinners. They may say there is a God, but they do not know Him, nor are they genuinely seeking the living and the true God. One has to ask, will people ever learn? Will they go on doing harm to God’s people, and eating them up like bread. They persecute the people of God.

What do fools say when disaster strikes?

These people would never even think of praying to God. Oh yes, when disaster comes, you will often hear people say, “Our thoughts and prayers are with you” But, in reality, though they may have thoughts about the victims of a tragedy, the fact is, they don’t pray. What is waiting for these kinds of people, what does the future hold for them? We find the answers here in Psalm 15. They will find themselves gripped by terror at some point.

You see, God is not with them. He is on the other hand with those who obey Him. God promises to help His people. He promises to protect them.

God’s Word on What Do Fools Say?

1 Only fools say in their hearts,
“There is no God.”
They are corrupt, and their actions are evil;
not one of them does good!

2 The Lord looks down from heaven
on the entire human race;
he looks to see if anyone is truly wise if anyone seeks God.
3 But no, all have turned away;
all have become corrupt.[a] No one does good,
not a single one!

4 Will those who do evil never learn?
They eat up my people like bread
and wouldn’t think of praying to the Lord.
5 Terror will grip them,
for God is with those who obey him.
6 The wicked frustrate the plans of the oppressed,
but the Lord will protect his people.

7 Who will come from Mount Zion to rescue Israel?
When the Lord restores his people,
Jacob will shout with joy, and Israel will rejoice.

Psalm 14
New Living Translation

Bob and Gayle Grenier have been at Calvary Chapel Visalia since July of 1978 and will be celebrating their 40th year not only in Visalia, California but also their 41st wedding anniversary in 2018.

Calvary Chapel Visalia is associated with over 1,500 Calvary Chapel Ministries worldwide. Bob and Gayle Grenier, upon a calling from the Lord to move to Visalia, with the mentoring and blessing of the late Pastor Chuck and Kay Smith, Founder of Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa, started out as a small Bible study and a Sunday afternoon service at a rented portion of the department store as Gottschalks. Nearly 40 years later, both Bob and Gayle, co continue to serve the Lord not only at their church in Visalia but reaching into the community to share the good news of Jesus Christ. Pastor Bob would like you to personally invite you to Church on Sunday or Wednesday, and you are also able to email him at info@bobgrenier.org if you would like to discuss questions about your faith, Christianity, and how to grow in your walk with the Lord.
