God has a perfect word for His people in these last days - ignorant. "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge", saith the Lord. "Because you have rejected knowledge, I will also reject you, that you shall be no priest to me: seeing you have forgotten the law of God, I will also forget your children." Ignorance is from a Greek word that means the absense of knowledge. It is not a sin to be ignorant but it only makes a person ramain ignorant once truth is presented and rejected.

One writer sees ignorance as the first penalty of pride. The rest of the world can speak for itself but here in America it is the puritan ignorance that is so obvious. The traditional churches among them have adopted a theology against spirit, reason and understanding that precludes them from ever coming to an accurate knowledge of the truth. The naive blindness to progressive revelation, the five-fold ministry and the right-wing role that they play has exposed them to the delusions that God has sent to those who believe a lie. The accumulation of riches has only denigrated their ignorance into debasement.

Ignorance is not a popular topic; there are always those that will be offended, but the light of spiritual reason must shine regardless. For the most part it is futile to argue against ignorance and unfair to take shots at someone who is unarmed. An ignorant person cannot understand what ignorance is, will only get defensive and it's hard for them to appreciate the ones who can see right through them. The worst of them will not provide service in the church but go just to get blessed, if they go at all. They will believe the soothing words of the most ignorant of pastors as long as they tell them what they want to hear, that they are all saints and will not be numbered with the transgressors. As they serve their God they exploit the poor until their eyes cloud over. They oppose latter rain promises and think that they are serving God in their zeal. Their understanding is darkened, they are alienated from the life of God because of the blindness of their heart. Isaiah prophesies the word of the Lord concerning judgment and doing justice and speaks out against those in His house of prayer which should be for all people. "His watchmen are blind, they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark, sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber. Yea, they are greedy dogs which can never have enough and they are shepherds that cannot understand, they all look to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter."

The good Pope John wrote, "The ignorance of the truth is the root and cause of all the evils which poison, so to speak, the lives of individual peoples and nations." An ignorant person can always be aroused but they are fast asleep and have been lulled with hundreds of years of traditional incognizance. Gilson said it well concerning fundamentalists: "Since God has spoken, it is not necessary to think." Paul wrote of them that "they have a zeal for God but not according to knowledge. For they being ignorant of God's righteousness and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God."

Under the Mosaic law many sin offerings were made for the people who sinned under ignorance. Many say that ignorance of the law is no excuse, but that is worldly wisdom. The priest would make an atonement for the one that sinned in ignorance and they would be forgiven, but the sin at some point would have to come to his knowledge and be recognized, bringing them into the light of awareness. For a Christian, ignorance of God's law is to go against the law of love because you have not the grace or the knowledge to do right. Jesus is our sacrifice and he overlooks and forgives former ignorance. If you are truly walking in the light, you have no excuse to walk in ignorance. Conversely, if you are walking in ignorance, it can be argued that you are not truly walking in the light.

It is time for Babylon to awake, arise and turn away from their ignorance. I could sit here and write all day for them to come out and I could blow my trumpet and jump up and down for them to accept knowledge, but you know and I know that we are preaching on deaf ears. These people really are ignorant but they have chosen to be so but we should have compassion on them. They will not see the light until we come together as a group and speak as one in order for the light to shine.
[Hosea, 65, 228, 04, 375, Ephesians 4, Isaiah 56, Leviticus 4, 5, Numbers 15]

The Lord has given Christians the grace to reconcile the children to their Fathers
