Marks of one not following God


Characteristics of those who reject God include wanting to deceive you, they want to kill any good thing that is in you and yet, if you wait long enough, you will see their downfall and you will see that there is no generation of family coming after them.

Psalm 14’s theme is the folly and downfall of those who reject God. It begins, “The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God.’” (Psalms 14:1a, NIV). The person who denies God’s existence is senseless, denying all the evidence in the world around us that points to a Creator (c.f.—Psalm 19:1-4 & Romans 1:18-32). Without belief in God, men have no grounds for morality, therefore, “They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none who does good” (v. 1b).

In comparison, deciding to live right, you will treat others fairly, you will rescue those who are being threatened and your families will grow from generation to generation.

Give justice to the weak and the fatherless;
maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute.
Rescue the weak and the needy;
deliver them from the hand of the wicked.
Psalm 82:3,4
