It is a terrible state and condition. It is not just a refusal to believe. This is how the devil foils us. He persuades modern unbelievers into thinking they are unbelievers because of their great intelligence, their wonderful intellect and understanding. They think that Christians are fools who have not read or simply have not understood what they have read.
"The unbeliever thinks he is an unbeliever because of his scientific knowledge, and that it is in the light of these things that he refuses to believe. They rejoice in their great emancipation, that they have been delivered from the shackles of the Bible, that they have been emancipated from this drug, this dope of the people that we call the Gospel.
Poor things! The devil has got them. They are unconscious slaves, and they do not know that they are victims.
[Martin Lloyd Jones]
Psalm 14:1 ... The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.
Luke 24:25 ... Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken:
Romans 1:21 ... Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.❤
