Matthew Flannagan and Psalm 14 – Could he be more wrong?

No, not Matt, the other ‘he’ which we don’t mention. Matthew has entered into the conversation on Psalm 14.1 and atheism:

It is worth noting that even commentators who interpret the phrase as “there is no God” do not think it refers to atheism as we understand the term today. There are several reasons for this. The first is that the phrase “no God” is used in Psalm 10:4. Here it refers to a person who “curses and renounces God”, acts as though God will not hold him or her accountable for his or her actions. The point is not that the person does not believe in God but that the person rejects God’s requirements to do what is right and does not consider him or herself to be accountable or responsible for what they do.

Anyway, go read Matt’s article:
