Is Ignorance Bliss?

February 13, 2012

John Allan

You have probably heard expressions such as “Ignorance is bliss” and “What I don’t know won’t hurt me.” But are these statements true when it comes to God’s word?

Is it a good thing to be ignorant of the Gospel? Will ignorance excuse sin? The purpose of this study is to understand that when it comes to spiritual matters, ignorance is NOT bliss.

 

Ignorance Does Not Excuse Sin.

 

Ignorance Does Not Save

 

Ignorance Will Not Produce Faith (Romans 10:14-21)

 

Sin is the Problem

 

If ignorance could save then God, in His love, would not require that the Gospel be proclaimed. Since God commanded that the Gospel be taught we are forced to the conclusion that the Gospel must be heard and obeyed for man to escape from sin through Jesus Christ.

Have you obeyed the Gospel? It is done by hearing the word (Romans 10:17), believing it (Mark 16:16), repenting of your sins (Acts 2:38, Luke 13:3), confessing the Lord Jesus Christ (Acts 8:37, Matthew 16:16), being immersed in water (baptized) for the remission of sins (Acts 2:38, 1 Peter 3:21) and being faithful to God unto death (1 John 1, Revelation 2:10).
