In his recent sermons Mr. Smith has been covering the subject of wisdom. In this Bible study he looks at the opposite way of life. Psalm 14:1 says that the fool has said there is no God. Mr. Smith points out that this is not the only class of people that the Bible labels as foolish. Many verses speak of people who believe God exists but for various reasons do not believe they have to obey his laws. Also Romans 1 speaks of the way of life that people live who have openly rejected the knowledge of God.
