The True Fool

The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” 
Psalm 14:1    

On this day that society deems, "April Fools' Day".  Let's take a look at the true definition of a fool.  

"The Fool" - the most fundamentally foolish thing in the universe is to deny that there is a God. It is like a living, healthy man denying the existence of his beating heart, or his breathing lungs, thus denying the moment-by-moment warm, red blood flowing inside his body and the fresh air being breathed into his lungs.  He stupidly denies the very source of his life, while simultaneously living off of it.  This is the epitome of a walking contradiction. This is worse than a demon. Even demons acknowledged the reality of God when in the presence of Jesus!  However, the human who has been created in the image of God, yet claims that there is no God, is infinitely worse and wicked—because he denies the glorious reality of the only infinitely wise and worthy Creator God who "gives life, breath and all things" to every living creature (Acts 17.25).
