Truth Shall Make You Free

Click here for the audio version

It has been claimed that ignorance is bliss. The meaning of this seems to be that a person is not disturbed by that of which he is unaware. Yet, great harm has come indeed as a result of ignorance. The Seventeenth of Acts reveals that it was in ignorance that the Athenians worshipped a deity they regarded as unknown to them. The Tenth of Romans tells us that zeal expressed in ignorance results in a failure to submit to the righteousness of God. At Ephesians Four, ignorance alienated some from the spiritual life they may have found in God. At Second Peter Three, some chose ignorance over the acknowledgment of Divinely revealed information. At First Corinthians Twelve and First Thessalonians Four, however, Paul sought to allay ignorance about spiritual gifts and the eternal future of the dead, while Peter did the same concerning God’s view of time, verses our own, at Second Peter Three. At John Eight, the Savior highly recommended knowledge over ignorance when He said, “Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
