Fools? Yes. But, not like Mr. T. :]

God says:

The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.”-- Psalm 14:1

For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened.  Claiming to be wise, they became fools-- Romans 1:21-22

God says that all people know Him.  So much so that they are without excuse before Him for their unbelief.  God says that people who deny His existence are... fools.  Obviously, this infinite, omnipotent God is not "hatin" on people and just trying to throw a jab at finite little creatures.  He is not simply calling people names.  God keeps it real (to use the modern vernacular).  God is describing someone.  He is describing a person who knows something but is working very hard at convincing themselves otherwise.  He is describing the person who is hard-hearted and will not admit to what they and everyone else knows clearly in their heart-of-hearts.  He is describing the person who cannot escape the FACTS of His existence and chooses impotent reasoning over proper reasoning.  This kind of person may profess to be wise but their reasoning becomes futile.  Their outlook on life will reduce to simple foolishness.  In apologetics/evangelism with our Atheist friends all we have to do is give the Atheist (made inescapably in the Imago Dei) enough time in the conversation to display these truths.  As Greg Bahnsen used to repeat:
"Give the unbeliever enough rope and he will hang himself".

Biblical Apologetics Applied:

My friends and brothers Pastor Dustin Segers and Sye Ten Bruggencate recently debated some Atheists during a public debate at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.  The futility of the Atheistic worldview couldn't be clearer and proper biblical methodology was on full display.  

Listen Closely.  Watch how Dustin and Sye do not abandon faithfulness to Christ (and proper reasoning) in their apologetic.  Watch how Dustin and Sye actually apply the Gospel (God, sin and the need to repent and believe in Christ for salvation) in their actual apologetic.  Very exciting!  Very educational!  

Big props to Dustin and Sye.  Although, all the glory goes to Jesus of course.... :]
