Two examples: The Seeker escaped from a dark and cold perpetual cave. He goes out to the sunlight then returns to his friends still in chains in this dark cave. He speaks of the Light and encourages them to follow him. They refuse. Would they have done so if they truly knew the Light? The frog from the field visited the frog in the well. "Is your field as big as my well?" Said the frog from the well. "Much bigger." Said the frog from the field. "You're a liar." Said the frog in the well, and kicked him out. Would he have truly done this, had he seen the field? Such is human ignorance

Wonderful answer. This question was designed to support an answer I gave somewhere else. Yes, for me Ignorance is part and parcel of the plan. Nothing is bad really. Truth is in all and Love is all. Gratitude.
GOD DOES "NOT" WANT US "IGNORANT" OR A "FOOL!" (Rm 1:13; 11:25; I Cor 12:1-3; 15:50-54; I Thess 4:13-18!)
People on HP thk I'm "rude" by "parroting" what is in HIS WORD, but IT IS WRITTEN (TRUTH)!
"Ignorance" is "sin" ("unbelief") when WRITTEN!
Norine let me get it straight. You believe in the Bible but I don't and if god is going to punish me then so be it. I am not afraid of being punished and I will continue to walk my path. I believe in reason and not blind faith.
Yes Tom, nice one, and what you describe is very much so. Still, sometimes we simply do not know. I touched this red cable and got 300 volts! If I knew it was going to hurt me, would I have touched it? If I knew Christ could heal me, why kill him?
That's one of the best descriptions I have ever read. I can fully agree with that!
Buildreps, Thank you so much! Appreciated.
"..a self-created thing?" TOTALLY against Scripture (Prov 3:5)! " When reality comes along and that thought is challenged, they either go through great travail and trauma, or - and more commonly - simply refuse to see life 'as it is." TOTALLY AGREE!
Tom I like your answer. Mostly you are very balanced with many Hubs and to me a really good human being. My Gratitude. Happy Easter.
I read this twice, Norine. A sometimes difficult for me. Please forgive me.
Actually, your answer is awesome! God is Omniscient; God is all in all. We deny Him because we do not know Him. Ah! The nature of His plans! Happy Easter, my Sweet Friend
Let me break it down "friend!"
If 1 doesn't have Holy Spirit (or knowledge of field as frog didn't, although have access), then "ignorant" & continue to "kick out" TRUTH!
God sees ALL, but not in ALL!
"Such is human ignorance!"
Fine! All's good, Norine. The weather is great here! Has Hub Pages been kinder to you? I see that you're back in full swing! Happy Easter!!
IDK how to explain it - BUT GOD! All's good!
I wish u'd know GOD is not in everything. Although He sees ALL, some things He "hates!"
Why do u believe He's in "religions" created by man?
What do I know, Norine? I am a student of Peace; an eternal beginner; a mere instrument of His. Please continue to chide me when I go too far. Much Love.
Man: "Peace" is not the answer! TRUTH is! TRUTH does NOT "go alone to get alone!"
IF 1 BELIEVES in the CREATOR, then 1 BELIEVES Bible; otherwise serving "idols" (Exd 20:3)!
Thanks for all your inputs, Norine. Happy Easter!
