Psalms 53:1 "The fool hath said in his heart, there is no GOD." In this passage of Scripture we have a picture of how GOD views fallen humanity. They are separated from GOD. They are under the curse of sin. They are lost spiritually. They are blind to their need of a Savior. They are spiritually dead in their sin. They live their life as though there is no GOD.

Psalms 53:2-3 "GOD looked down from heaven upon the children of men to see if there were any that did understand, that did seek GOD. Everyone of them is gone back. They are altogether become filthy. There is none that doeth good, no not one." This is the reality of lost humanity.

GOD has given testimony to His existence through creation. Romans 1:20 says "For the invisible things from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and GOD head so that they are without excuse." GOD has given the divine record that reveals His plan of salvation, the Holy Scriptures. GOD sent His One and only Son to die as our substitute on the cross. He paid our sin debt. He offers to us the free gift of eternal life if we will only believe the message and receive it by faith. Many people not only do not receive the free gift, they refuse to even believe there is a GOD.

The sad truth is that if they continue in their unbelief they will die unprepared to meet GOD. They will hear the fearful message, depart from Me you workers of iniquity, I know you not. That my friend is a true definition of a fool, lost for all eternity. Revelation 21;15 states "and whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire." Don't be a fool. Be wise and chose Christ. Believe on Christ and live. Proverbs 1:7 states "The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction" Be wise, fear GOD. Believe on Christ Jesus and live in the favor of GOD. Here is the contrast between a wise person and a fool.
