Psalm 53:Written by King David, this Psalm gives us a true definition of a fool! It also reveals the real life consequences of humans refusing, despite the overwhelming evidence. (Romans 1:19 – 22 NIV: Since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities; his eternal power; and divine nature; have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse. For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools), to acknowledge God exists and deserves to be obeyed. The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God.”}
It reads in Psalm 53:1-6 NIV
{For the director of music. According to mahalath. A maskil of David.}
The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, and their ways are vile; there is no one who does good. God looks down from heaven on all mankind to see if there are any who understand, any who seek God. Everyone has turned away, all have become corrupt; there is no one who does good, not even one. Do all these evildoers know nothing? They devour my people as though eating bread; they never call on God. But there they are, overwhelmed with dread, where there was nothing to dread. God scattered the bones of those who attacked you; you put them to shame, for God despised them. Oh, that salvation for Israel would come out of Zion! When God restores his people, let Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad!
