[Wisdom]
{4:9} and an immaculate life is a generation of sages.

[Hebrews 13]
{13:4} May marriage be honorable in every way, and may the marriage bed be immaculate. For God will judge fornicators and adulterers.

[Proverbs]
{1:29} For they held hatred for discipline, and they would not accept the fear of the Lord;
{1:30} they would not consent to my counsel, but they detracted from all of my corrections.
{1:31} Therefore, they shall eat the fruit of their way, and they shall have their fill of their own counsels.

Two passages come to mind:

Quote:
Matthew 6:25-34
"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat (or drink), or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds in the sky; they do not sow or reap, they gather nothing into barns, yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are not you more important than they? Can any of you by worrying add a single moment to your life-span? Why are you anxious about clothes? Learn from the way the wild flowers grow. They do not work or spin. But I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was clothed like one of them. If God so clothes the grass of the field, which grows today and is thrown into the oven tomorrow, will he not much more provide for you, O you of little faith? So do not worry and say, 'What are we to eat?' or 'What are we to drink?' or 'What are we to wear?' All these things the pagans seek. Your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom (of God) and his righteousness, and all these things will be given you besides. Do not worry about tomorrow; tomorrow will take care of itself. Sufficient for a day is its own evil.

Psalm 128
Blessed is the man who fears the LORD, who walks in his ways! You shall eat the fruit of the labor of your hands; you shall be happy, and it shall be well with you. Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house; your children will be like olive shoots around your table. Lo, thus shall the man be blessed who fears the LORD. The LORD bless you from Zion! May you see the prosperity of Jerusalem all the days of your life! May you see your children's children! Peace be upon Israel!

I wonder why people usually skip the rest of the verse?

Psalms 14:1
The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.

Not politically correct or just fear?

Well, Spiritually speaking, the entire verse is right

"they are corrupt" - since they don't believe in God, their spirituality is "corrupt" in the Judeo-Christian worldview

"they have done abominable works" - when it comes to religion I'll refer you to academia:
"The God Delusion" by Richard Dawkins
"god Is Not GREAT" by Christopher Hitchens
"Why I'm Not a Christian" by Bertrard Russell
the "There Probably Is No God" signs in Britain

It's not to say Atheists are bad people. However when it comes to religion nothing good comes out of it in the end.

"there is none that doeth good" - once again, Atheism does nothing to progress the belief in God

Look at the next two verses:
(I noticed you quoted from the KJV so I'll continue with it)
Quote:
2 The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God.
The verse is true in the Judeo-Christian world-view because no Atheist "understands" that God exists. This also shows how no Atheist seeks God because an Atheist does not believe in God. If they begin to sincerely seek God and worship Him they are no longer Atheists.

Quote:
3 They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one
This verse is very angry. Denying the Holy Spirit is considered the ultimate blasphemy. This is something ALL Atheists do by the very DEFINITION of Atheism


There are many ways to interpret Scripture. Some even have multiple true meanings. Be they literal, allegorical, or spiritual.

Probably because "The fool says in his heart, "There is no God." fits on the sign.

anyway....

2Samuel 15:32 And when David was come to the top of the mountain, where he was about to adore the Lord, behold Chusai the Arachite, came to meet him with his garment rent and his head covered with earth.

Revelation 21:6

And he said to me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega; the beginning and the end. To him that thirsteth, I will give of the fountain of the water of life, freely.

whoops, in replying to cerad, i forgot my bible quote:

Wisdom 2
(reasoning of the wicked)
17 Let us see then if his words be true, let us prove what shall happen to him, and we shall know what his end shall be. 18 For if he be the true son of God, he will defend him from the hands of his enemies.


Gotta love that prophesy Protestants don't have
