2 Peter 3:5-6 (KJV)
For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:
Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:
This sounds like it was hand written for our day. This world is not ignorant but willingly ignorant of those things that are key to life and godliness:
- The Flood
- Judgment of God
These simple but foundational principles have been passed down almost inherently in our genes. We know them to be true because:
- We have the Word of God
- We have the witness of the Holy Spirit
- We have placed within us the consciousness of this truth
Those who reject the Lord do so willingly, consciously. They design schemes to replace what they inherently know to be true. They build walls to remove themselves from those who speak the truth. They set up heroes to trust in rather than the truth. Our modern educational system leads the way in this willing ignorance. It is advanced through science. It is lauded in the arts.
Those who know the truth choose to grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ instead.
