D. Scoffers in the scriptures: (Psalms 73:11-12, Isaiah 5:18-19, Jeremiah 17:15-16, Acts 17:18)

1. Life of ease with riches multiplying but does not acknowledge GOD. (Psalms 73:11-12)

Psalms 73:11-12 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

“What does God know?” they ask. “Does the Most High even know what’s happening?”

Look at these wicked people— enjoying a life of ease while their riches multiply.

What sorrow for those who drag their sins behind them with ropes made of lies, who drag wickedness behind them like a cart!

They even mock God and say, “Hurry up and do something! We want to see what you can do. Let the Holy One of Israel carry out his plan, for we want to know what it is.”

Jeremiah 17:15-16 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

People scoff at me and say, “What is this ‘message from the Lord’ you talk about? Why don’t your predictions come true?”

Lord, I have not abandoned my job as a shepherd for your people. I have not urged you to send disaster. You have heard everything I’ve said.

4. They are usually wise in debate but does not acknowledge the LORD JESUS and His Resurrection (Acts 17:18)

Acts 17:18 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

He also had a debate with some of the Epicurean and Stoic philosophers. When he told them about Jesus and his resurrection, they said, “What’s this babbler trying to say with these strange ideas he’s picked up?” Others said, “He seems to be preaching about some foreign gods.”
