Today’s attached devotional illustrates how really foolish supposedly
intelligent people can be. When I read the first quotation for the first
time, I actually burst out laughing. I hope it gives you a good chuckle
too. God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
Psalm 53:1 (ESV)
The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.”
They are corrupt, doing abominable iniquity;
there is none who does good.
“What can you say about a society that says that God is dead and Elvis is alive?” [Irv Kupcinet in The Smartest Things Ever Said about Everything: True Wisdom from the Most Brilliant People Who Ever Lived collected by Rosemarie Jarski, (New York: Skyhorse Publishing, Inc., 2014), p. 215]
“This wonderfully enlightened nineteenth century has produced an order of wise men who glory in their ignorance. They call themselves ‘Agnostics,’ or know-nothings. When I was a boy it would have seemed odd to me to meet with a man who gloried in being an ignoramus, and yet that is the Latin for that Greek word ‘Agnostic.’ Is it not singular to hear a man boastfully say, ‘I am an ignoramus’?” [Charles Haddon Spurgeon, The Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit XXIX, (London: Passmore and Alabaster, 1883), p. 259]
