Men who are wise (in their own eyes) often feel too smart 
	to believe in God.  Even some, so called, Bible believers 
	think themselves too wise to believe the entire Bible and 
	must explain away things they feel are unbelievable.  
	Things like: the creation, hell and the devil, Christ's 
	resurrection, the flood, Sodom and Gomorrah, etc.  
	(A Bible believer with no belief in the Bible? Hmm.)

	What does the Bible say?

		Romans 1:21-22 "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."

		1 Corinthians 1:20, 21, 25 "Where is the wise?  Where 
	is the scribe?  Where is the disputer of this age?  Has not 
	God made the foolish the wisdom of this world?  For since, 
	in the wisdom of God, the world through wisdom did not know 
	God, it pleased God through the foolishness of the message 
	preached to save those who believe, (25) Because the foolishness 
	of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger 
	than men."

		Colossians 2:8 "Beware lest anyone cheat you through 
	philosophy and empty deceit, according to the basic principles 
	of the world, and not according to Christ."

		Always remember to look at what the Bible actually says, 
	for yourself, not what others "think" it does or does not say.
