Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools. Roman 1:22 KJV. The fool says in his heart, there is no God. Psalms 14:1 KJV.
The Lord wants us to know that humility is precious in His sight, also when we deny God there will be repercussions.
Let us therefore come to know the one true and living God, humble ourselves under His mighty hand and He will exalt us in due time. 1 Peter 5:6 KJV
