YOU WILL SEEK ME AND FIND ME WHEN YOU SEEK ME WITH YOUR WHOLE HEART -
We don't struggle with the Word of God primarily because we are ignorant of it. I don't think there has been a period in church history of a more pervasive ignorance of the content of Scripture than today, in our own culture.
And you know the word ignorant comes from the Latin - ignoramus - (Gk - agnosco (from which we get the word agnostic) - w/o knowledge. It's a lack or a deficiency of the information that we have in our heads, in our minds. We are ignorant of the Scriptures... we are w/o knowledge...
The question is this, "Why the ignorance?"
The primary, motivating, driving cause of ignorance of anything is the ignoring of the subject. We're ignorant of the Scripture because we ignore the Scripture and... we are proving it with our lives.
We don't want to retain God in our thinking. We want to banish Him from intruding into our presence, particularly when He comes to speak of law, when He makes a claim upon our lives and imposes upon us an obligation... I want to be free... I have a conflict over an ultimate issue and now the issue is one of authority. Who is sovereign? Is it God Who is and Who speaks, or am I sovereign, exercising personal autonomy, for I am a law unto myself, to do what I want to do because I want to do it?" long red formal dresses
If that's where we are, then there's a whole lot at stake for us, and we'd better hope (of course prayer would be a waste of time) but we'd better hope there's no God, and there is no law, and that God is du mb and deaf and blind." - RC Sproul
