Leave the presence of a fool, for there you do not meet words of knowledge (Proverbs 14:7, NKJV). Who is the fool? From the vantage point of those who think in accordance with the “god of this world” (2 Corinthians 4:4), all those who belong to Christ (cf. 1 Corinthians 1:18-31). To that degree then, let us leave those who think Christians are foolish because the real fool is the one who thinks and lives as if there is no God (cf. Psalm 14:1). The message the real fool lives by is a message that originates and perpetuates moral relativism, existence coming into being without any sufficient cause, and all sorts of ideas that speak against the very idea of God. There is no way to learn anything of eternal substance from those who are fools. While they call Christians foolish, who is really the fool?
