The fool has said in his heart, "
Psalm 14:1 NKJV
IS THERE A GOD?
By Thomas Whitelaw, M.A., D.D.
IV. THE DESIRE OF THE FOOL (IN THE BIBLE):
"I WISH THERE WAS NO GOD."
Only a few words need be given to this rejoinder, as the fool does not say in his intellect, but only in his heart, there is no God. In his case the wish is father to the thought. Secretly persuaded in his mind that there is a God, he would much rather there had been none. It would suit him better. But the fact that he cannot advance to a categorical denial of the divine Existence is an indirect witness to the innate conviction which the human heart possesses, that there is a God in whom man lives and moves and has his being.
A fool has no delight in understanding, But in expressing his own heart.

Therefore, the One whom you worship without knowing, Him I proclaim to you:
God, who made the world
and everything in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands.
Nor is He worshiped with men's hands, as though He needed anything, since He gives to all life, breath,
and all things.
And He has made from one blood
every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth,
and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings,
so that they should
seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of
for in Him we live and move and have our being,
