Memorable Scripture: Foolish things

The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God.” Psalms 14:1

Many verses of the Psalms are somewhat familiar but this one is very familiar.
I’m sure many atheists take exception to these words and think how foolish those verses are.
The Bible says many things about foolish thinking and foolish ways and I’m sure we’ll explore them as we continue through the Bible’s memorable scriptures.

I understand the atheist mind. It is easy to over-think God and overlook Him. There have always been teachings against God’s existence that extends into the present time.
Science teaches against creationism. Evolution maintains the self-existent change of man. Philosophy attempts to explain things in a logical manner, and so many false religions pull people’s belief in different directions.
It’s easy to throw up your hands and walk away from the idea of God.

However, we don’t live just by science, theories, philosophies, and religions. We walk by faith and not by sight, yet, it is difficult for the natural man to receive the spiritual things of God. The spiritual is foolishness to such a person.

As Paul told the Corinthians, “These things we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one. For ‘who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him?’ But we have the mind of Christ.” 1 Cor 2:13-16
