“The Stupid Fool”

Blessings folk!

Psa 14:1
For the choir director. A Psalm of David.
The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God.”
They are corrupt, they have committed abominable deeds;
There is no one who does good.

Psa 53:1
For the choir director; according to Mahalath. A Maskil of David.
The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God,”
They are corrupt, and have committed abominable injustice;
There is no one who does good.

Well, that explains much about those in the world…and the religionist within the organizational “church”.

The Fool…

  • says there is no God
  • is corrupt
  • has committed abominable deed
  • does no good…none.

Now, give heed to some about the “stupid”…I know, we tell our kids not to call folk “stupid”.
It is a difference in the attitude of heart…

Jer 4:22
“For My people are foolish,
They know Me not;
They are stupid children
And have no understanding.
They are shrewd to do evil,
But to do good they do not know.”

This is the Lord speaking.
Note it is His children who are…

  • foolish
  • stupid
  • lacking in understanding
  • shrewd to do evil
  • unknowing in doing good

They are delusional…

Jer 10:3
For the customs of the peoples are delusion;…

Jer 10:8
But they are altogether stupid and foolish
In their discipline of delusion—their idol is wood!

They are altogether stupid and foolish.
They are disciplined in delusion…what a picture and description!

They are consumed with idolatry.

Jer 10:14
Every man is stupid, devoid of knowledge;
Every goldsmith is put to shame by his idols;
For his molten images are deceitful,
And there is no breath in them.

Devoid of knowledge.

The people of the Lord were like this.
But, there is more…

Jer 10:21
For the shepherds have become stupid
And have not sought the LORD;
Therefore they have not prospered,
And all their flock is scattered.

The shepherds of the Lord have become stupid.
The very ones who are to lead the people to the Lord.
They have not sought the Lord.
The people have not prospered in spiritual growth.
The people wonder about seeking that which is needed.

Every man…
The people…
All are stupid.

Little has changed.
