Been thinking lately...is ignorance really so bliss? Sometimes knowledge brings with it information that challenges our current lifestyle or beliefs. Sometimes it forces us to draw a line in the sand and make a choice. To obey or not to obey. To live like you have always lived or change your ways. Yes, sometimes not knowing is more convient; but is it bliss?
Hosea 4:6My 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
1 Timothy 1:13Even though I was once a blasphemer and a persecutor and a violent man, I was shown mercy because I acted in ignorance and unbelief.
Acts 17:30In the past God overlooked such ignorance, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent.
Ephesians 4:18They are darkened in their understanding and separated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them due to the hardening of their hearts.
1 Peter 1:14As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance.
Not wanting to live in ignorance; having to make some tough choices.
