Psalms Chapter 14 Discussion

  • Richard H Priday on Psalms 14
    This Psalm is focusing on those who would be what we call today "atheists." They are said here to do terrible things; as well as go after God's people. Verses 1 and 3 remind us that there is no one who does good. We see this sort of behavior in the end of dispensations of time when "judgment comes to the full" starting in Genesis 15:16; and it continues to the transgressions of Babylon at the end of the 70 years of captivity as well as the time in Revelation in the example of a few instances.

    Lest we entertain the tought that this state is only for those who deny that God exists; we surely have to realize the admonitions in 2 Thessalonians 2:10 about those who did not receive the LOVE of the truth. Ultimately; as Romans 1 and Psalm 19 indicate there is enough evidence in Creation that men are without excuse; also including evidence of the godhead ( Romans 1:20). We are reminded that because God does not execute judgment right away men get complacent in Ecclesiastes 8:11.

    We are reminded here in verse 6 of the treatment of the poor of Proverbs 21:20 where "a fool and his money are soon parted." Some; thankfully will repent when humbled enough; sadly others not as Revelation makes all too clear. The last verse once again looks forward to the salvation of the nation of Israel; related to the last days return of His people. Israel for now is far nationally from repentance; and it won't fully repent and come to the true Messiah until the Lord is returning ( Zechariah 12:12 and surrounding verses). Let us all test our hearts to make sure that we are worthy to escape all the things that are to come to pass and to stand before the Son of Man ( Luke 21:36 see also Rev. 3:10).

    Study evangelism; street ministry. :) Which can be carried out anywhere, like where you live.

    I leave tracts that I purchase (Chick Tracts, online)

    on the ground at Lowes, Home Depot, Goodwill, Subway sandwiches, anyplace with a lot of foot traffic. Bus benches, park benches, bleachers.

    If anyone ask questions of you, tell of the faith that YOU have personally. Our testimonies are heart-crafted by Jesus.

    Psalms 14:1 The KJV puts "There is" in italics which means the translators added those words. That renders a completely different meaning when you write is as in the original Hebrew. When "there is" is left out, the fool states "no God". In other words, the fool refuses to accept what God is telling him to do and says "no God". I do not believe what you are saying and refuse to do what you are instructing me in your Word. That makes a really BIG fool and leaves the one refusing lost and undone. Just like the Hebrew children at Kadesh Barnea when they refused God's instruction to enter into the promished land. They did not believe God--why did they NOT enter in?-----Unbelief. How sad............................

    God's Word is true and every man a liar.

  • Copy How Jesus Does Things - in Reply on Psalms 14
    I was 4 yrs old when God began showing me what he was like. We can glean the same tender instruction now, through the Holy Spirit. If we seek Him, he will come to us. It's a matter of desire within us. The world crowds in, often, and interrupts us. I've been a single most of my life. Saved at at age 34. Often in gridlocked traffic I can draw close to God and listen to counsel and wisdom. Speak peace over traffic around me. We can use the authority of Christ to bring Him into any situation we care about. If we don't care, we should draw closer to God.

    Even as a child, I found God to be most precious and desirable as a friend. I didn't know who he was; but I heard Him. He'd teach me through His creation. He'd bring the most unusual learned people into my path to reveal secrets of rocks, etc. I think this is how Heaven is going to be. All the angst of the world will be gone. We'll be able to hear Fathers revealed wisdom.

    We witness meanness and pure evil around us every day. We're called to be peacemakers. Our words and prayers can effect change. We have to learn from scripture how it works. WHO it is that stands alongside of us as we pray. Always pray the known Will of God. Avoid wordy books. Get our info from the Lords Bible.

    Satan knows the Bible too, and tries to use it against us in the court of Heaven. We have the best lawyer: Jesus!

    Jesus used scripture to shut the devil down. That is what works. Knowing our authority in Jesus. If we spend our time doing the Do's; we can avoid the snares and traps of satan. Be quick to Repent. We make mistakes. How fast we are to make adjustments is sensitivity to the Holy Spirits leading of us.

    We can all have a closer walk with Jesus if we will follow in his shoe prints. I tear through the Bible often in search of: HOW did Jesus do this? He's the son of God. We cannot fail, if we follow His examples. One being: he did not skimp on prayer time. He was actively communicating with his Father, every day.

    seems as though you could apply the same to todays political scene.

  • Wayne goldsworthy on Psalms 14
    The people of Israel where mixed with the Christian countries for a portion of time and returned back to Israel still without a heart for the truth about the Lord and only became subjects to the worldly corruption which disappointed God

  • Vanessa on Psalms 14
    We allow immoral things go on as well, are we serving God, or are we guilty just as well?
  • Vanessa on Psalms 14
    we live in the day that people deny there is a God , because it makes them feel better about their sinful ways, they are fools and those that follow them as well, dont get caught up in the worldly advice stick with God's word, do not condone their actions either. We sit by now an watch allowing live born babies die what are we doing?We vote such people into office, sad aren't we
  • Standaman on Psalms 14
    The fact that there is "none that doeth good, no, not one." proves that the only ones who do good and are saved are those who believe in Jesus. Cause since all of us are evil sinners undeserving of eternal life ( Romans 3:23) then that means the only way to be saved is to have your sins forgiven and righteous imputed upon you by faith and the only way that could happen is by believing in Jesus.
  • Mild Bill on Psalms 14
    Any person/sinner is changed from fool to fellowship with God, only by his grace. We don't find God, he is the potter, we are the clay. It is nonsense/ignorance to believe, or suggest, he owes us anything, due to anything, from within us. We love him because he first loved us.1John4:19. Sovereign, Almighty, Savior, Love, is he alone.
  • BSP on Psalms 14
    Verse 1: God views those who do not believe in him as fools. Such ones can become corrupt and have detestable actions.
  • A disciple on Psalms 14
    "Oh that THE SALVATION OF ISRAEL were come out of Zion! when I AM brings back the captivity of HIS PEOPLE, JACOB shall rejoice, and ISRAEL shall be glad." As the heathen beat their plowshares into swords, and beat more fiercely the drums of war; The God of Israel, the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, is working all these things for the salvation of His People Israel, and for all grafted in by faith.
  • A disciple on Psalms 14
    "I AM looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, seek God." Some may say that the Lord knows their hearts, when they are reproved for sin and bad behavior. Yet when it comes to the very root of their moral choices and character they play ignorant. God KNOWS that we understand the truth and His commandments: our duty is to truth in the inner man.
  • A disciple on Psalms 14
    "The fool hath said in his heart . . No God! They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that does good." Notice that it doesn't say, The angry hostile hater . . but, The Fool! It is a moral behavior of willful stupidity. When the Lord called the scribes and Pharisees, Fools and blind; the word in the Greek literally means, Stupid, Moron; which is what men act out morally.
  • Mild Bill on Psalms 14
    Any,all,none means no exceptions. And from them, he gives refuge, to whom he pleases, to make them righteous. "The blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works"Romans4:6 "If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.John8:36" "For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost."Luke19:10
  • Irene123 on Psalms 14
    v. 1 - We need to pray, pray really and sincerely pray for the 'fools'. Pray with REAL compassion - which compassion ONLY the Holy Ghost dwelling in us can give; we cannot 'conjure' it up ourselves.
  • Adoniyah Yisrael on Psalms 14
    This passage of Scripture isn't condemning the whole earth as if there wasn't anyone doing good or not understanding nor seeking God. It specifically identifies the non-compliant subjects as the fool being the children of men. There is a difference between the children of men and the sons of God See Genesis 6:1-2 4 . ALSO Psalms 82:6,7 I have said, Ye are gods and all of you are children of the Most High. But you shall die like men... In other words the sons of God now die just like men die. The only way to know the difference today is to observe who is eating up the people identified in verse 4 of Palms chapter 14. In Genesis 3:15 the Lord God put emnity between the seed of the woman and serpent. Therefore we have to observe the fruit or works to identify who is creating all the hell on earth and who is catching all this hell that is being created. Therein lie the truth. I speak strength and endurance unto all the children of the Most High the sons of God that they may endure to the end not being caught in the trap of materialism. Blessings unto all you who strive for the good of all! Amen.

  • BSP on Psalms 14
    God was looking down for the good in people but unfortunately all he saw were the people doing bad.
  • Norm on Psalms 14
    Our Father, which art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. These pervert Your Word, Father. These take money and teach lies, Father. These PREACH falsehood in many buildings called by YOUR NAME, Father GOD. These be among that spiritual wickedness in high places that influence Your people wrongly. In CHRIST JESUS we pray Your will be done, all for Your glory and Your name's sake. Amen Jeremiah 23:1 Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! saith the LORD. Psalms 14:3 They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
  • Bertha on Psalms 14
    How can anyone deny there is a God, the scriptures tells how he created the heavens and the earth and without him none of this would exist, not even man. Truly the fool has said in his heart there is no God,
