The Book of Psalms
What does it mean to be a fool? To be a fool, according to Scripture, is not merely being ignorant of the truth, but it is opposing the wisdom of God. This is why all those that deny that God exists are called fools; they have rejected God’s revelation of Himself in His Word and in His creation. In this sermon on Psalm 14:1, Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones preaches on the folly of rejecting God as Lord and Creator. For Scripture tells us God has clearly revealed Himself, and it is only an act of foolish rebellion that leads men and women to deny that God exists and has created all things. God has given evidence that He exists in all of creation, from the stars above to human consciousness. The greatest tragedy of the fool is not only that he has rejected God has his creator, but that he has also rejected God as his savior. For Jesus Christ is God’s only appointed means of salvation; to reject Him is to reject God’s love and grace! The ultimate answer to human rebellion is the sovereign electing grace of God. For it is only God’s grace that can overcome sin!
