My frustration is not with ignorance or ignorant people per se but rather with people who are willingly ignorant.
The fact is, we are all born ignorant.
No one is born knowing anything and as life progresses we consistently become less and less ignorant… it’s the natural progression of life.
The problem occurs when people become more comfortable in their ignorance and are not willing to change to accommodate new information – new facts and truth… that’s the problem .
In order to succeed at life, we must become lovers of the Truth above everything else.
We must love the Truth more than our own opinions and more than the popular doctrines of our clique, whether that clique is our religion, our local church, our ethnicity or any other group we belong to.
The primary commandment of the New Covenant is to love the Lord above everything else, with our whole spirit, soul and body.
And Jesus said, “I am the way, THE TRUTH and the life.”
Therefore, God is Truth and loving God is loving the Truth… Loving the Truth is loving God.
Loving the Truth Means:
Loving The Living Truth – God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
Loving The Written Truth – The Bible, God’s Word.
Loving The Revealed Truth – Specific Principles the Holy Spirit Illuminates from His Written Truth.
When we love the Truth above everything else and we’re willing to change to accommodate that truth in our lives, we protect ourselves from error and deception .
When the Truth is NOT first place in our lives, we consign ourselves to living in ignorance and become easily deceived and manipulated by our enemy.
Consequently, when faced with life choices, we make decisions based on faulty information, corrupt understanding and fleshly wisdom, resulting in disaster.
Love the Truth above everything else and have the courage to change to accommodate it.
