My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.
Because you have rejected knowledge,
I also will reject you from being My priest.
Since you have forgotten the law of your God,
I also will forget your children.
I was walking back home from the library at 4am on Sunday, and there at the corner of the library were two young students making out. I was just at the breach of judging them in my mind, when I remembered that they may not know that what they're doing is wrong. Besides, it's not unusual to find people doing the same thing at the same time in the modern world. The world has ignored knowledge, they have rejected it. The law of God has been forgotten. In fact, obeying the law of God is seen as the practice of our forefathers.
Just as there is a consequence for every action, destruction is yielded by lack of knowledge. People would not have knowledge if they have not been taught, ...Romans 10:14
How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how will they hear without a preacher?...
Our duty as Christians is to prevent destruction by telling the gospel to the world. Jesus has commanded us to go... Mark 16:15 And He said to them, “ Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation... Unfortunately, most Christians do not even know what they have been called to do. The purpose of our salvation is to establish God's Kingdom in earth. Christians should not keep the knowledge of Christ to themselves. No matter how little the knowledge is, it is powerful enough to change someone's life. SPREAD THE WORD, SHOUT IT, SCREAM IT, CRY OUT TO THE WORLD...TELL THEM THAT THEY NEED JESUS!
