Message of the Day: Corruption is the Result of Unbelief and Reckless Action
“The fool has said in his heart, ‘there is no God.’ They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none who does good.” (Psalm 14:1, NKJV)
This psalm is similar to Psalm 53 and quoted in Romans 3:10–12. People who don’t believe in God are here called fools: rampant wickedness shows what fools people are.
The psalmist observes what happens when people refuse to recognize God and does reckless actions, the result is a corrupt society. Their rejection of God means that they reject the true standard by which to judge good and evil. They are selfish, they do not consider others and no thought for God.
But since there is a God, there will be a day of reckoning, a day of judgment for the wicked. But living among the ungodly are godly people, for whom Judgment Day will be a day of joy.
