Matthew 22:29 Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.    “Did God actually say . . .?”   Jews, Messianic Jews, Dispensationalists, others rely on the Christians ignorance of the Bible to promote their lies.  If someone is ignorant of God’s Word, then they will reflect that ignorance in their beliefs, their speech, their purpose in life, their motivations and in all sorts of spiritual illnesses. They could join atheists in attempting to live in the world as it is. Ignorance of God and His laws quite often quickly results in sin.   The ancient Israelites. God also accused them of ignorance in Jeremiah 4:22. Israel wasn’t always ignorant as a nation, but as generation after generation strayed farther and farther from God, they forgot about God’s laws. They gave up the knowledge of God and His ways for the world and its supposed privileges. Apostle Paul admits that he had been ignorant in 1 Timothy 1:13. Some of the things he did in this ignorance were awful. He had killed faithful followers of Jesus, persecuted the Church and beaten the people called by the very God he was trying to worship.  Hosea 4:6,  God mourns, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.” There are many denominations even within Christianity, all of which claim to have the correct beliefs.Though we have more access to the Bible than any generation before us, most Christians still have never read it all.  Most Christians are ignorant of the bible cause they do not read it even 5 minutes a day. God is  calling us to  understand the Bible,.He is calling us to seek to understand Him and His ways more and more, through reading and studying Scripture, looking into what is the truth.Can a person even properly be called a believer if there is this much ignorance about what the content of that belief is supposed to be? A person is much more likely to compromise if they are ignorant of important information about their faith. Christians, first and foremost, need to learn the foundational truths about their faith. This includes a basic knowledge of the contents of the Bible. The ‘spiritual’ ignorance about faith was not limited to Christians. Christians are rightly concerned about the secular worldview’s rejection of biblical Christianity, we ought to give some urgent attention firstly to our own –biblical illiteracy. Recovery starts at home.  WE must get deadly serious about the problem of biblical illiteracy, or face Hell next. Since most people do not truly cry out to God for understanding, and because they do not really study His inspired word!

You must not remain ignorant of what the Bible actually says! Your very life truly depends upon it.  Offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God — which is your spiritual worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.    Knowledge is what you know; it’s what you have in your head. Understanding is the deeper level of seeing how the knowledge fits together and how it can be used. Spiritual understanding means understanding the things of God. Wisdom is the ability to make sound judgments; to take that knowledge and understanding and apply it.Gain Biblical knowledge then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is — his good, pleasing, and perfect will.

Hosea 4:6 God says through Hosea, “Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being priest for Me.” (Romans 12:1-2) Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable — if anything is excellent or praiseworthy — think about such things. (Phil. 4:8)   Let’s make you the  “ignorant Christian ” a thing of the past.
