In the Middle Ages, the days of kings, knights, serfs and peasants, it was not uncommon to hear someone talk about The Fool. He was the court jester or the joker of a nobleman’s household, responsible for entertainment. In our day the title, Fool, has taken on a different meaning; it describes an ignorant person who exercises poor judgment. Under the inspiration of God, the writers of scripture employ the word many times. e.g. “The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good. (Psalm 14:1)”
For one to deny the existence of a Being whose wisdom, knowledge and power exceed that of feeble man, is illogical and foolish. The great design of this universe requires a Great Designer/Creator. The perfect order that can be observed from the realm of the microscopic to the realm of the galactic, most certainly requires a Sustainer. The astounding book, the Bible, that contains perfectly harmonious answers to the world’s toughest questions, provides a moral compass for the otherwise wayward and wandering human race, and prescribes a satisfying purpose for all who choose to embrace it, most certainly requires God! To say otherwise is foolish and undiscerning.
But many would rather be called a Fool, than to admit there is a God. They know that if God exists, He would certainly require something of them, but they are determined to be captain of their own soul. This might seem okay except that God has a plan for fools: the unbelief of a fool is sinful, and “the wages of sin is death… (Romans 6:23).” God says, “…the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: [Hell] (Revelation 21:8)”
But God wants you to know that He would “…have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. (1Timothy 2:4) “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16) Perhaps you should reconsider.
