There is an old saying that goes like this, "What you don't know won't hurt you." The truth is, what you don't know will either harm you or destroy you. If you don't know the truth (which comes through knowing the Word of God), you will be deceived by a lie.
Example: A little kid does not realize that if he touches a hot iron, he will be burned. Just because he does not know this, will not prevent him from being harmed.
If we do not know that we were born in The Kingdom of Darkness, we will not see the need to be born again to enter into The Kingdom of Light, and we will stay unregenerate.
If we stay unregenerate, when we die we will enter into eternal death or eternal damnation. But on the other hand, if we receive salvation we will enter into eternal "LIFE" with "CHRIST."
When we are regenerated or saved we have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer we who live, but Christ live in us; and the life that we now live in the flesh we live by faith in the son of God, who loved us and gave Himself for us.
Looking at several analogies of "what you don't know, won't hurt you," can you see a clearer picture now, that "what you don't know will harm or destroy you."
The Truth will make you free, but if you don't know the Truth, you will stay in bondage." "Facing Our Fears Releasing Our Faith Book and Workbook" were designed as a foundation for the study of God's Word. These books are a step by step recap of how I came to know the truth.
My people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge, (Hosea 4:6). No knowledge, no Faith!!!!
Selah, think about that!!!!!
