The Real Fool

Psalm 14:1 “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.”

Believe it or not, but every human being born after Adam less Jesus Christ, was born a real fool. We naturally lie to our hearts and say “there is no God” and would live out the rest of our lives this way unless God intervenes.

And unless that intervention comes, we delusionally continue to lie and then attempt to become our own god. We make the rules for right and wrong, we decide what is ethical, moral, and good. We decided what is sin as well. This is why the Psalmist says “there is none who does good”, because “goodness” compared to a holy God is an unachievable endeavor.

The real fools are those who will continue to say “there is no God” until their dying breath. Only then to discover that absolutely EVERYTHING they ever accomplished in this life including the very breath they too was all given by God. They never realized that God sent them their spouse and children, their jobs, their provision, the many good things, as their deluded fallen hearts told them they created this through their own will and exertion.

What a regret that day will be! To finally realize the TRUTH, that the Almighty God is sovereign. And as mentioned, we ALL have been fools. Just because God intervened doesn’t dismiss the fact that if saved, you were a deadly fool as well. Some forget this fact, or try to portray themselves as never having been real fools as anyone else.

And let’s be clear as well, if you are trying to save yourself by your “goodness”, it doesn’t matter how much lip service you give to God, you are actually saying IN YOUR HEART, “there is no God”. You invented a god to suit yourself most likely through a world religion such as Roman Catholicism or other religions who use the humanistic “goodness scale” to determine who goes to heaven and who goes to hell. Whereas God is using His own scale, which is His holiness compared to everyone else.

Jesus Christ is the only who has met the “goodness” standard, and there is just one way to eternal life, it is through His person and work alone! Place your faith alone in Him!
