Fool


FOOL

The fool lacks wisdom. The words fool and wisdom in the Bible differ in meaning from the ordinary usage of the same today. Proverbs 1:7 says, “Fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and discipline.” Psalm 14:1 adds, “The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God.’ Their deeds are loathsome and corrupt; not one does what is good.” Such a person who purposefully denies God and leads a sinful life cannot inherit Heaven. In the Biblical sense, calling someone a fool amounts to character assassination, slander on the person’s spiritual and moral integrity, and damage to his reputation. The one responsible for such behavior is liable for eternal punishment in hell.
