Pride: A Pathway to Foolishness – Romans 1:22-23

I believe that human pride is one of the causes that lead people to turn away from God; reveling in their own wisdom and understanding; and in the process becoming fools. Education and learning are wonderful things. Modern science is a great tool to help us to understand the creation around us. But when we put education or science on the throne, instead of God, we have done what Paul is expressing in Romans 1:22-23; claiming to be wise, but becoming fools.
