The descriptions of a “fool”……
•   Those who DENY God in speech, attitude, and action.
•   A fool is one who is obstinate and STUBBORN.
•   Fools are those who despise wisdom’s instruction and are MORALLY bankrupt and fleshly.
•   Fools trifle with the serious and GAMBLE away the joys of eternity for the lusts of time.
