THE ANATOMY OF A FOOL Your Own Worst Enemy
The Ontological Argument (proof of God by nature) for the existence of God rebukes atheism without saying a word. The Biblical definition of a fool is the person who says in their heart that there is no God. Atheists are more creative than Believers. It takes more energy to deny God, than to have faith in Jesus Christ; just as it takes more facial muscles to frown than to smile. The path to least resistance is to have faith in God.
To truly believe that there is no God after observing creation in its majestic splendor and observing the interactions of seasons then deny the existence of the Grand Architect emanates from a mind of a fool. Philosopher Descartes simply stated, “I think therefore I am.” Furthermore, the Apostle Paul stated, "For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse" (Romans 1:20).
Glass Half Empty
To quietly complain to oneself and not confront issues can be more detrimental than speaking out and seeking a dialogue that can spawn salient solutions. A fools’ primary agenda is hate. It requires less thought, and work to remain focused upon a bitter path set by a nescient few than to work on change.
It runs in shallow shores bearing the weight of natural resistance and treads misery in stagnate water. Through individual participation or in groups the historical memory of racists are normally forgotten or infamous, to say the least. The gift of unity evade people who divide the human experience for the sake of accelerating personal endeavors.
Persistence Overcomes Resistance
A fool can never keep it a secret that he or she is a fool. It is in a fools’ nature to vent that they are such and display how ill-equipped they are with great tenacity. For example, a fool may bring a knife to gunfight and say, "shoot me."
While others are pulling up their bootstraps to succeed many use excuses not to try. My all-time favorite rap record is 'Young World' by MCEE Ricky D. aka Rick the Ruler. The artist made mention that, "Society is a weak excuse for a man." This attitude of not using excuses for failure is a great paradigm for a young person. Success can come regardless of your circumstances. To sum it up in a quote from a mid-eighties, NYC radio personality, Super-Rocking Mr. Magic, "Persistence overcomes resistance."
Trust Listen, Obey
A fool despises wisdom and abhors instruction. Sound doctrine is not preferred over habits that were once productive, but are now destructive. A fool does not respond when a season changes and fail to change garments even if weather permits. Its like swimming during freezing temperatures bare-skinned and calling yourself a polar bear.
Your Own Worst Enemy
"In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth" (2 Timothy 2:25 KJV).
