GODLESSNESS

An attitude and style of life which excludes God from thought and ignores or deliberately violates God's laws. Romans 1:20-32 is a classic characterization of godlessness: the godless refuse to acknowledge God in spite of the evidence of creation (Romans 1:22), engage in willful idolatry (Romans 1:25), and practice a life-style unconstrained by divine limits (Romans 1:26-31). The godless not only have no fear of God's judgment but seek to involve others in their wickedness (Romans 1:32). “Godless myths and old wives' tales” (NIV) refers to speech that encourages an attitude and life-style of godlessness (1 Timothy 4:7; compare 1 Timothy 6:20; 2 Timothy 2:16).
