The Bible is very clear. Saying, "God does not exist," is evidence that the person saying it is a fool. The person may be very intelligent. And they might be highly educated. But intelligence and education are not the same thing as wisdom. Education imparts information and knowledge. Intelligence is the ability to process that information. But wisdom is something else entirely. Wisdom is the correct application of that information and knowledge. Intelligence looks at the "what" question and considers possibilities. Wisdom addresses the "why" question and selects the possibilities that truly are the best for all concerned. God is the source of all wisdom. Those who refuse to acknowledge that God even exists have cut themselves off from that source. That means there is no foundation whatsoever to support their thinking. When shaking comes, as it inevitably does in every life, those things that they are so sure about now will come crashing down and shown to be nothing but hollow constructs. In contrast, those who acknowledge God in their ways start from a place where wisdom can flow. And they are the ones who will still be standing after the shaking comes.
The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt. They have done abominable deeds. There is no one who does good. — Psalms 14:1 (WEB)
