According to a statement from Allen Temple AME Church in Somerset, Rev Smith focused on the biblical character of King Saul.

Rev Smith, now of , now of Bethel AME in Shelly Bay, “The King Who Lost his Kingdom”.

“In an extremely engaging manner he entreated the congregation assembled to beware as Christians of becoming so self-confident that we no longer listen for the guidance of God in our lives and begin to ignore the presence of God,” the statement said.

“ He stressed that this was a formula for failure and like Saul if we forget God we will lose everything.”

The Bad Boys of the Bible Series has been held each Wednesday evening at 7.30pm as a part of the Men’s Season activities of Allen Temple which focuses on the theme “Christian Men: Taming The Dog Within “ based on Philippians 3:2.
