My opinion is that a scoffer is a pessimist, Sharon, to answer your related question. As to what the Bible says about scoffers, read on: Proverbs 13:1 A wise son heareth his father’s instruction: but a scorner heareth not rebuke. 2 Peter 3:3 (ESV) 3 knowing this first of all, that scoffers will come in the last days with scoffing, following their own sinful desires. Proverbs 3:34 (ESV) 34 "Toward the scorners he [the LORD] is scornful, but to the humble he [the LORD] gives favor." or in the NET Bible, "Although he is scornful to arrogant scoffers, yet he shows favor to the humble." Acts 13:41 (NET) ‘Look, you scoffers; be amazed and perish! 1 For I am doing a work in your days, a work you would never believe, even if someone tells you.’” NET © Notes 1 Or “and die!”
