Professing Themselves to be Wise

Professing Themselves to be Wise July 1, 2013

Why is it that those who have never studied a topic, and yet are confident they know everything they need to and have no need to learn anything, seem to be the most likely to quote Paul’s words in Romans 1:22, “Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,” and do so thinking it applies to the person they are talking to and not to themselves?
