5 Fools

~ Which Fool Are You? ~

Each of us fits into one of the five types of fools.

Atheistic Fool ~ The person who has enough faith to believe that there is no master designer—no God. He lives by the motto that “there is no God.” This may be the biggest fool of all since Scripture twice makes the following statement:  The fool has said in his heart, ‘There is no God’” (Psalm 14:1a & 53:1a).

Do It Yourself Fool ~ The individual who depends on their own good works—unwilling to accept the Cross of Calvary as their access to God. “For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God” (1 Corinthians 1:18).

Let Me Help Fool ~ The one who intellectually accepts the reality of the historical Christ but bases their salvation on something other than Christ’s death in their place for them—unwilling to accept the Cross of Calvary as their only access to God. Jesus said, “Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock. But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall” (Matthew 7:24-27).

Pick & Choose Fool ~ This is the person who decides for themselves which parts of God’s Word is true and reliable—unwilling to accept the whole of the Word of God. “Then He said to them, ‘O foolish ones, and slow of heart to believe in all that the prophets have spoken!’” (Luke 24:25, emphasis added).

Not Really a Fool ~ The individual who is sold out to God and considered a fool by the four other classes of fools. This person seeks to respect, honor, and live for God in all they do. “We are fools for Christ's sake” (1 Corinthians 4:10a).

Martyred missionary Jim Elliot is often quoted for saying, “He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose.” Centuries prior Dr. Luke wrote: “And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but are yourself lost or destroyed?” (Luke 9:25 New Living Translation).
