The Lusts of Ignorance
The apostles managed to fulfill in their lifetimes the commission of the Savior to carry the Gospel into all the known world of the time. Paul alluded to this fact at the Second of Titus, where he wrote that the grace of God that brings salvation had appeared unto all men. That message of grace taught that, in order to live a life of sober and godly righteousness, one must deny ungodliness and worldly lusts. It is blindness of heart that darkens one’s understanding of this concept. At the Fourth of Ephesians, Paul warned at Verse Eighteen that this condition alienates one from the life of God because of the perpetuation of the ignorance that the Gospel was designed to allay.
Such ignorance not only prevents the redemption of the lost, but has been known by the lusts characteristic of it to cause the loss of the saved. For this cause, at -z T Peter One, the children of God are warned not to fashion themselves according to the former lusts of ignorance.
