Hot Topics... Foolishness
Out of a person's heart come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, wickedness, deceit, lustful desires, envy, slander, pride, and foolishness.
Mark 7:21-22 (NLT)
Among my young grandsons, foolishness is called bad silly. It usually involves some juvenile potty talk. To them, the words poo and butt are non-stop hilarious.

When bad silly begins, their laughter seems so innocent. Maybe... but I've noticed trends that may apply to us, too:

1) Once raunchy humor starts, it's contagious and hard to stop. It's almost like a little demon has entered Stage Left.

2) Bad silly (foolishness) leads to even worse behavior--usually a more aggressive disobedience.

3) Among grownups, foolishness often takes lewd undertones. But sensual humor can precede carnal aggression.

Bottom line: If God says foolishness is evil, it is. Perhaps locker room talk or girl's night out need God's Presence. Among believers, perhaps there's no perhaps about it.
