Biblical Clarity of “Pride” and “Fools” – Proselytizing the Devil’s Counterfeit Delusions of God’s Design

is pride the never failing vice of fools

Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law, he meditates day and night. He will be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season; its leaf will not wither, and whatever he does will prosper. The ungodly are not so, but are like the chaff which the wind drives away. Therefore the ungodly will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the Lord knows the way of the righteous, but the way of the ungodly will perish. (Psalms 1:1-7)

Individuals who “did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them over to a debased (depraved reprobate) mind, to do those things which are not proper” (Romans 1:28) are referred to as Satan’s useful idiots by some. The Word of God however refers to them as “fools” (Romans 1:21-21), who being duped, in their folly celebrate Satan’s delusions of living without moral and natural boundaries, in direct counterfeit opposition to God’s undefiled design (Hebrews 13:4).

Understanding this willingness to be the devil’s ambassadors is reflected in their abuses to not only silence, but also criminalize Biblical Christians. It is also most disturbing that these fools are aided by like-minded deviants, be it politicians, lawyers, judges, educators, CEOs, Hollywood, or anyone willing to do Satan’s bidding. The scheme and strategy begin with hijacking words by falsifying and twisting the meanings such as pride, rainbow, bigotry, hate and tolerance to seduce gullible complacent and apathetic individuals.

Romans 1:21-25 – Because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him or give thanks to Him as God, but became futile in their imaginations, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools. They changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man, birds, four-footed beasts, and creeping things. Therefore God gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their own bodies among themselves. They turned the truth of God into a lie and worshipped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

As it was with Satan when he was “cast out” (Revelation 12:9) for “exalting his throne” (Isaiah 14:12-15), so to do the fools egotistically denounce the boundaries of God’s design of nature and biology, exalting their throne, worshipping the creation versus the Creator in sinful reprehensible immoral pleasure, “which is against nature” (Romans 1:21-26).  Then as they have been seduced by Satan, they in turn become accomplices in seducing gullible individuals into compromising with evil, and most disturbing, proselytizing and coercing children to do the same (Romans 1:32, Matthew 18:6).

Little children, let no one deceive you. The one who does righteousness is righteous, just as Christ is righteous. Whoever practices sin is of the devil, for the devil has been sinning from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was revealed, that He might destroy the works of the devil. (1 John 3:7-8)

Therefore God will send them a strong delusion, that they should believe the lie: that they all might be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness. (2 Thessalonians 2:11-12)

Just as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the surrounding cities in like manner, gave themselves to immorality and went after different flesh, they serve as an example by suffering the punishment of eternal fire. (Jude 1:7)

These feeble-minded adults, perverts, imbeciles and lackeys of Satan, who not only embrace, but promote this scam of abominations to demoralize citizens and undermine the civil society, are pushovers under the employ of the devil who “walks around as a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.” (1 Peter 5:8)

Beware also that “For false christs and false prophets will arise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.” (Jesus – Matthew 24:24) False shepherds who are “unlearned and unstable distort, as they also do the other Scriptures, to their own destruction.” (2 Peter 3:16) Now the Spirit clearly says that in the last times some will depart from the faith and pay attention to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils, speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their consciences seared with a hot iron… (1 Timothy 4:1-2) He who justifies the wicked, and he who condemns the just, both of them are abomination to the Lord. (Proverbs 17:15)

A fool has no delight in understanding, but in expressing his own heart. When the wicked comes, then comes also contempt, and with dishonor reproach. (Proverbs 18:2-3) As a dog returns to its vomit, so a fool returns to his folly. (Proverbs 26:11, 2 Peter :22)

In the last days there will be scoffers who will walk after their own ungodly desires. These are the men who cause divisions, sensual, devoid of the Spirit. (Jude 1:18-19)

Although the Biblical expectations of convincing and convicting fools is slim (Proverbs 1:1-7, 9:8), “Nevertheless, if you on your part warn the wicked to turn from his way and he does not turn from his way, he shall die in his iniquity. But you have delivered your soul.” (Ezekiel 33:9)

Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God is coming upon the sons of disobedience. Therefore do not be partakers with them. (Ephesians 5:6-7)
