3 Scriptural Warnings for the Biblically Illiterate in These End Times

3 Scriptural Warnings for the Biblically Illiterate in These End Times by GARY CURTIS for Charisma News

I’ve been intrigued recently at the number of times the New Testament epistles speak of people being “ignorant.”

The apostles’ intent was not malicious nor mean spirited. The Greek word used is agnoeo‘ and simply means “not knowing.” One might say that these people were “uninformed,” “unlearned,” or “uninitiated.” In each reference, they were “biblically illiterate” of the subject or issue.

Biblical illiteracy is a critical problem in our “post-Christian” era. Our modern world has produced a biblically “ignorant” generation, which does not know God nor His prophetic plans for the end of this age.

As such, they are culturally ignorant of His call to repentance and holiness. We must inform, enlighten and seek to save or rescue these ignorant ones, “snatching them from the fire” of hell itself (Jude 1:23, NIV). This is our mission “while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work” (John 9:4, MEV).

Scriptural instruction from the New Testament regarding the biblically “ignorant” can be divided into three areas.

1. Biblical illiteracy has produced a current generation which does not know God.

  • In Romans 10:3, Paul taught that some were “ignorant of God’s righteousness and seeking to establish their own righteousness, they did not submit to the righteousness of God.”

  • When he taught the Romans regarding the grafting in of the Gentile church and the future restoration of Israel, Paul said, “For I do not want you to be ignorant of this mystery, brothers, lest you be wise in your own estimation, for a partial hardening has come upon Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in” (11:25).

  • In teaching the Corinthians about spiritual gifts, Paul said: “I do not want you to be ignorant … you were Gentiles, carried away to these dumb idols, however you were led. Therefore I make known to you that no one speaking by the Spirit of God says, ‘Jesus be cursed!’ And no one can say, ‘Jesus is the Lord,’ except by the Holy Spirit” (1 Cor. 12:1-3).
