A Brief Biblical Principle from our lesson on John 8:12-21:
Unbelief never has enough proof; willful ignorance never has enough truth.
Willful ignorance is demonstrated by that person who says, “Don’t bother me with facts. My mind is already made up.”
In short, if you’re willing to know the truth, you’ll know the truth.
Ignorance is cheap; ignorance is common; and ignorance in the face of evidence for truth is terminal.
The author of Hebrews lamented,
The only unpardonable sin is unbelief.
And a willing unbelief – a refusal to to honestly investigate the claims of Christ – is a death sentence.
