Wayne B. Smith Sermon



"Bob Russell, one of Smith’s dearest friends and former pastor at Southeast Christian Church in Louisville, wrote in December of Smith’s generosity.
“If you measure wealth by friends, Wayne Smith is probably the richest man in Kentucky; plus he’s stored up a lot of treasure in heaven,” Russell wrote. “That’s the most secure place in the universe. And the Lord hasn’t charged him a dime for the rental space.”
Smith did not shy from taking public stances on issues: Sunday liquor sales, merchants who opened their stores on Sunday, abortion, coed dorms at the University of Kentucky and X-rated movies, among others.
In 2006, he took the Kentucky Board of Education to task for a plan to add B.C.E. and C.E. (Before Common Era and Common Era) to the traditional terms B.C. and A.D. in school curricula.
The following year, he railed against expanded Sunday alcohol sales.
Smith was asked in a 2005 biography by Rod Huron, The Ministry of Wayne B. Smith: Love, Laughter and Leadership, “If you were not a conservative, what would you be?”   from Lexington Herald-Leader 
Smith answered, “Ashamed!”"
