Lack of Knowledge

Lack of Knowledge

Though we know it is a sin, why we keep doing it? Don’t we believe in heaven anymore? Don’t we believe that God is still with us? If you call or pray and asking for something and did not get an answer, did you pray to the right person in the godhead? As I have been telling everyone that the Persons in the godhead never usurp their authority. That is one of the keys to answered prayer.

God was directly involved in human affairs even after the first man Adam fall to temptation and that is the proof of His love though He made it known to humans that God hates sins, human strength seems coming from sinning why they cannot resist doing it. But that is not true, human fear God because of the consequences it will bring.

The truth inhuman perspective is that it hates sin and not enjoying doing it especially when the conscience resists and starts bothering the body, the problem is not because of the love of doing it but the happiness it brings to the body. Why there are corrupt officials who make laws and yet they are number one to violate it. Corruption is in their blood and to drain the blood is to get their happiness cut. They already made it part of their lives.

Why there are ministers who preach the goodness of the Word and yet not doers of what they preach. Why there are more corruptions of any kind than doing straight and godly work? Why favoring money becomes more powerful in distracting our rightful decision?

We are in the fallen state and no matter what we do at the end of the day it’s foolishness because there is always sin involve. Little or big sin is still a sin. That is why when God was pushed to carry on His decision to wiped out all the living creations during Noah’s time and through Noah’s righteousness mankind remain to exist.  Life was reset after the deluge and did not stop involving Himself in human activities.

God called Abram His friend and even promised that through him all nations will be blessed and God even put His name in the middle and called him Abraham. God continues to speak to humans many different times but a human cannot live without sins. God gave Laws to be followed and they go back to worship God for a little while then come back to the old habit of worshipping other gods. The desires of the flesh overpower the work of the spirit that gives guidance and protections. Too many transgressions of the law and there is no way humans can survive another wave of wiping the human race.

From the mountain to the tent to the temple because of Gods purpose to continue the existence of the human race God made a covenant with the Son and the Son established the doctrine of the church then the message that is part of the covenant about the kingdom of God was shared through Jesus’ ministry.

It was fully misunderstood at that time even Jesus’ disciples didn’t get it. There is already an issue of misunderstanding who was really the church. They thought that Peter is the church and the Pope is the successor and for centuries they hold to that power and the ignorance of the believers has been abused. Due to the protest made by a member of the church the evangelicals got a piece of the history of the church but still the same the church is considered to be a building.

Until later many new believers understand it better than the old who remained to play ignorant because of fear that when they turn their back something might happen. The church is not a building but the Body of Believers.

“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge; because you have rejected knowledge, I reject you from being a priest to me. And since you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.” Hosea 4:6
