Psalm 14 directly connects atheism with sin, the first of which is the foolish denial of the reality of God. Having reassured themselves that a non-existent God cannot punish them, fools proceed to act wickedly. The Lord looks down from heaven, and can’t find anyone with understanding. But we are no longer down on earth among the children of men. When we come to worship, we join God in heaven, and when the wicked see that God meets with the children of the righteous, their pretensions come crashing down, and they are terrified. O, that God would fill our church with worshipers, that unbelievers might be rebuked and dismayed, and that salvation might flow from our worship in Zion!
