“17 This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that you henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind,
18 Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:
19 Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.
20 But you have not so learned Christ;” Ephesians 4:17-20
Moral insensibility, “being past feeling”, occurs when one fully gives themselves over to evil. The lost are ignorant of Divine things. They may be very smart intellectually but spiritually they are ignorant. Remember, they are not lost because they reject Jesus but reject Jesus because they are lost.
Willful ignorance is not knowing that you don’t know. There are far too many Believer’s who have the Holy Spirit and the Word of God, yet they remain willfully ignorant. They don’t know that they don’t know because they have deemed the word of man to be truth. They have not studied the Scriptures to show themselves approved but have taken the word of man that they are approved. They have been approved by man to remain in their sin, their oppression, their depression and anything else that the Lord Jesus Christ came to deliver them from. Jesus Christ broke the bondages of sin on Calvary’s Cross, yet the churchians believe the preacher’s method will throw off the sin that has so easily beset them.
“Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth.” 2 Timothy 2:15
We will all give an account of how we rightly divided the Word of God…study to show thyself approved. Be determined to know nothing else among you save Jesus Christ and Him crucified.
