Foolish

The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, They have done abominable works, There is none who does good. (Psalm 14:1)

The truth that David declared sounds pretty ridiculous in this age of smart-thinking scientists.  The brilliant minds of our age would scoff at David’s conclusions. Some of my smarter pals at school would call me an idiot for agreeing with David.  Yet I think David got it right when he said it was foolish to think there is no God.

Professors tell us that if you are smart enough, you will gaze at the amazing Rocky Mountains and declare they are simply products of natural forces.  The world has us thinking that gazing up at the night sky on a desert evening should make us wonder at the “big bang”.  The intelligentsia has us trained to think that looking at the beauty of a tropical flower, a bird in the sky, or a whale breaching off the coast are simply results of random chance mutation.  But is that so?  We had to be trained and taught to conclude that there is no God.  Those conclusions don’t come naturally.

Belief in God is not a convenient truth, because it leads to the truth that we are accountable to our Creator. Want to know more about what God is really like?  Look at His Son.  Jesus explains to us exactly what God is like, full of grace and truth (John 1:14).
