Professing to be wise, they became fools
I remember this scripture from another Chick tract.
It has stuck with since the late 1970’s.
The entire Book of Romans is powerful with the foundation built in the first chapter.
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them.
For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened.
Professing to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.
God is fed up with ungodliness and unrighteousness. He is tired of people ignoring Him in all creation, which He created, and turning their worship of Him into the worship of the creation.
God is not through. Romans is an indictment against the sin of humanity.
Watch out, it will pierce your heart!
To say otherwise only validates today’s scripture.
