Fool’s Gold

April 20, 2018

An Amazing Fact: Gold coinage is composed of 90 parts gold to 10 parts
silver. But counterfeit gold, or “fools gold,” is made of iron pyrite,
which is a mineral composed of iron sulfide. The mineral is brass
yellow or opaque and has a metallic luster. The resemblance of pyrite
to gold caused many prospectors to mistake it for gold. However, it is
easily distinguished by its unusual brittleness.


Iron pyrite was used in ancient Rome to create sparks when struck with
steel. In the 16th and 17th centuries, it was used as a source of
ignition in firearms. The name “pyrite” comes from the Greek word
“pur,” which means “fire.” Some pyrite has a brass color and has been
nicknamed “brass,” “brazzle,” or “Brazil.”

Zephaniah, an Old Testament prophet, warned the people of Judah in the
days of Josiah that the great day of the Lord would come upon them.
They said, “The Lord will not do good, Nor will He do evil”
(Zephaniah1:12). But the prophet answered, “Neither their silver nor
their gold Shall be able to deliver them In the day of the Lord’s
wrath; But the whole land shall be devoured By the fire of His
jealousy” (v. 18).

The prophet’s message was not intended to lead them to despair but to
wake them up and call them to repentance. They carried around with
them a belief that “nothing is going to happen, don’t worry, this too
shall pass.” Like fool’s gold in their pockets, they assumed they were
secure in their false riches. But the destruction of Jerusalem came
like the flood and swept everyone away.

Today we also can be fooled in spiritual truth. Millions of people are
toting around heavy bags bulging with fool’s gold. They rejoice that
they have discovered that which will make them rich, but though it
sparkles on the outside it will be discovered useless at the bank of
heaven. Make sure you have the real thing!

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves:
it is the gift of God: Ephesians 2:8

Romans 10:9-10
"If you declare with your mouth, Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved."
