People who view God and doctrine with indifference, will mock God, will mock truth, will ridicule and defy and make fun of those things that are far beyond their understanding.
The fools pretend that God is the fool. The arrogant, presume that God will cower and react to their provocations. The angry, the defiant, the frustrated blame God for their predicament.
The very one who they reject, they challenge, which in itself is a contradiction.
When someone rejects something or does not believe in it, then you would think that he would simply ignore it.
But wicked people, anyone who rejects Gods plan and mandates and spiritual design, go many steps further in their rejection. They hate something, ignore something, reject something, try to re-define something, and then they go overboard in ridiculing the original.
People made of dust and possess short lives, presume that they know more than their maker, presume that they know more than the God who is eternal and omniscient, and omnipotent. Only a fool would mock or ridicule someone that is infinitely superior than they.
So the challenge, ‘Come right now! Show us your face! Show us the proof of your existence and wisdom! Why me? What have I done?’
And of course God has a plan that spans many generations, many millennia. God created all that exists. God is not tied to the laws of this universe, laws which He himself invented and put into place.
God is not able to sin, and able to not sin.
And so foolish people delve deeper and deeper into their own sins, in their challenge, in their hate, in their frustration, against the one and only person that can save them, even from themselves.
When you disregard God, you disregard His plan. When you disregard Gods plan, then you disregard Him. When you reject Gods defined apparatus for the spiritual life, then you reject God.
No one can invent their own spirituality and gain Gods acceptance. No one can reject God and acquire His awe. No one can invent something better, and expect God to be impressed. No one can argue a better argument and expect to win against God.
To do any of these is mocking the one and only person who knows and has provided the very best possible plan for humanity and each individual person. Rejecting God is rejecting your best and only hope and future.
