Love Simplicity, Delight in Laughter, Hate God
Proverbs 1:22 (KJB) How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge?
This proverb in its entirety amply describes simplicity, speaks of scorners, and introduces for us three types of sinning hearts.
Simple souls are often comfortable, unassuming, and uncomplicated by truths in accepting world-based terms. Even when pressed by truth of God are unwilling to change. They desire nothing other than what they naturally know and find to be pleasurable and palatable in this world. In the flesh nobody desires to feel uncomfortable and out of place and especially those operating with spiritually lost souls.
Scorning people delight in laughter, understand the world’s simple wit and logic, and fail to take things of God seriously. These individuals recognize there is a God but fail time and time again to regard Him. Or fail to ever place any importance on Him and in following His way. To them, God is just another path leading to heaven alongside many others in this world.
Foolish people outrightly disregard any notion of the existence of God. Fools make a personal choice to disregard God rather than an ignorant passing over of His truths. A fool recognizes God but hates anything to do with His presence and power. A fool realizes the certainty of eternity but does not think eternity will adversely affect him in any way or last forever. It (torment) will never happen to him for he chooses to believe in a kind of Heaven offered to all “good” people which is often casually portrayed by world based writers in movies and television.
Fools recognize God and hate Him, they know exactly who God is and yet they choose repeatedly to despise him. Simple and Ignorant people refuse to comprehend or apply the truths of God. You can count on it, every soul, sinners and saved alike, will enter eternity with or without favor and fellowship with God.
