April Fools Day – Atheist Day – The fool hath said …

I figured this would make a good blog post for April Fools Day, which is known as National Atheist Day.How fitting for being on April Fools Day.

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

A fool is known as a stupid person. In this since it is known as a wicked person, as in a vile person or a senseless person. Seek Strong’s #H5036.

נָבָל nâbâl (naw-bawl’)

From root Strong’s #H5034; stupid; wicked (especially impious): – fool (-ish, -ish man, -ish woman), vile person. It can also be used as the word foolish. This usage occurs 18  Time in the Hebrew concordance  The King James Version.

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 (MyBible)

A fool here can also be referred to as an atheist (someone who suppresses the truth of God since God does exist). In reality the atheist is just denying the truth, a form of rebelling. After all Creation is proof of a creator. (Romans 1:20) So there is no such thing as an atheist. That is why the Bible calls them a fool, because they are wicked, they don’t repent of sins and they reject Jesus Christ.

For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, Romans 1:20

Mathew Henry says this in his commentary about this verse.

We are sometimes tempted to think, “Surely there never was so much atheism and profaneness as there is in our days;” but we see the former days were no better; even in David’s time there were those who had arrived at such a height of impiety as to deny the very being of a God and the first and self-evident principles of religion.

Sin blinds us

Sin is what keeps us from saying that because sin blinds us from the truth. Like I mentioned above rebellion, rebellion is sin, disobeying God and denying God despite Creation is proof. No one is without excuse. Every knee will bow and every tongue confess!

The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Click To Tweet

Notice David said in his heart, not his brain. Your heart is the most inner part of the body. It is the core of your body. What gets bump often spills out and comes from your heart.  The heart is where our emotions and feelings come out too.

There is no fooling around with this blog post. Just pointing out a verse about the fool in the Bible.
