Ignorance is bliss? Think again!

By faithsprings

I have heard people say many times that what you don’t know doesn’t hurt you. This may be sound logical in the world, but not according to the Word. According to the Bible, ignorance is to be avoided at all cost, as it brings captivity and destruction.

Isaiah 5:13-14 (KJV)

[13] Therefore my people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge: and their honourable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst.

[14] Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it.

Hosea 4:6 (KJV)

[6] My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge:_because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

As a Christian, it is important make a quality decision to get knowledge, and with all your getting, get understanding. What is that area you are struggling with? God has spoken to someone about it in the past, and the secret is in a book, in a message, or in the Scriptures. Get reading, get listening, get studying.

Proverbs 11:9 (KJV)

[9] An hypocrite with his mouth destroyeth his neighbour: but through knowledge shall the just [righteous] be delivered.

True freedom can only be found in the truth of God’s Word. You will not fail!

John 8:31-32 (KJV)

[31] Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, _If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;
[32] And ye shall know the truth, and the truth [that you know] shall make you free.
