Quote of the Day #75 - Charles Spurgeon

A quote from Charles Spurgeon, taken from his commentary on Psalm 53:1 (The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God...):
And this he does because he is a fool. Being a fool he speaks according to his nature; being a great fool he meddles with a great subject, and comes to a wild conclusion. The atheist is, morally as well as mentally, a fool, a fool in the heart as well as in the head; a fool in morals as well as in philosophy. With the denial of God as a starting point, we may well conclude that the fool's progress is a rapid, riotous, raving, ruinous one. He who begins at impiety is ready for anything.

No God, being interpreted, means no law, no order, no restraint to lust, no limit to passion. Who but a fool would be of this mind?
~Charles Spurgeon (The Treasury of David, Psalm 53:1)
