Thomas Gray is the first to pen the phrase ignorance is bliss. Ignorance refers to disregard, insensitivity or being obtuse. Meanwhile, bliss is like experiencing euphoria, joy and paradise. However, when you put the two together, it can be a recipe for disaster.
As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance, 1 Peter 1:14.
In today’s progressive culture, if you’ve not open to non biblical ideas, you are considered ignorant. Yet, this same movement seeks heaven without following the guidelines left behind by Jesus. Sure, children make mistakes; its all part of growing up, to live and learn. However, at some point, you have to mature by taking responsibility for your actions.
When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me, 1 Corinthians 13:11.
Despite being an adult, I suffer from days of ignorance. These moments are marked by disobedience, not caring about this or that rule. Unfortunately, these periods open the door for evil, forgetting right from wrong or simply rejecting that which you know to be true. This recipe for disaster must be avoided at all cost before addiction poisons your soul. Therefore, before its too late, ask the Lord to draw you back into obedience.
