Who Thinks You’re Foolish
Look at all these folks, these atheists comments. How do you think they judge your desire to rely upon God.
I do not believe in God. I’m an atheist. I consider myself a critical thinker.
Science flies you to the moon. Religion flies you into buildings.
If I were not an atheist, I would believe in a God who would choose to save people on the basis of the totality of their lives.
I don’t believe in the afterlife.
Being an atheist has made me an active participant in my life, rather than a bleating victim of it.
Religion is the cause of all the problems in the world. I don’t believe in organized religion at all.
Religion is the worst enemy of mankind.
I’m not scared of dying, because I’m an atheist.
By simple common sense I don’t believe in God, in none.
The word God is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weakness, the Bible a collection of honorable, but still purely primitive, legends which are nevertheless pretty childish
I’m not religious, I’m an atheist.
If only I wasn’t an atheist, I could get away with anything.
I do not believe in a personal God and I have never denied this but have expressed it clearly.
God’s View of Foolishness
Forgive me, but I will refrain from the obvious, Psalm 14:1 which says, “only a fool says in his heart there is no God.”
Did you know that God has attributed foolishness to Himself?
1 Corinthians 1:25a (KJV) says that, “the foolishness of God is wiser than men. . .”
What Foolishness of God
How about the foolishness that says:
Pray For Direction? FOOLISHNESS:
You Don’t Gotta Worry? FOOLISHNESS:
Open My Bible When I Pray? FOOLISHNESS:
Do Not Doubt When I Pray? FOOLISHNESS:
Thank God For Everything? FOOLISHNESS:
Fast, From Food? FOOLISHNESS:
I Can Know God’s Will? FOOLISHNESS:
God is Interested in Intimacy, with Me? FOOLISHNESS:
Wrestle With God? FOOLISHNESS:
Take Sin Seriously? FOOLISHNESS:
Truly, the foolishness of God is wiser than men. Here’s that entire passage from chapter one of 1st Corinthians:
Christ the Power and Wisdom of God
18 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but it is God’s power to us who are being saved. 19 For it is written:
I will destroy the wisdom of the wise,
and I will set aside the understanding of the experts.
20 Where is the philosopher? Where is the scholar? Where is the debater of this age? Hasn’t God made the world’s wisdom foolish? 21 For since, in God’s wisdom, the world did not know God through wisdom, God was pleased to save those who believe through the foolishness of the message preached. 22 For the Jews ask for signs and the Greeks seek wisdom, 23 but we preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to the Jews and foolishness to the Gentiles. 24 Yet to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ is God’s power and God’s wisdom, 25 because God’s foolishness is wiser than human wisdom, and God’s weakness is stronger than human strength.
The Ultimate Foolishness of God
Enjoy this day where we see the ultimate foolishness of God displayed. Namely, a risen Saviour, saves all mankind.
