Ignorance and Enlightenment
The enemy has used both ignorance and “enlightenment” (or the perception of it) to mislead many.
Even thechurch has been used many times to lead people into darkness – or to keep them there.
In the Middle Ages, the Catholic Church capitalized on the ignorance of the laity regarding the truth of the Bible – deceiving and exploiting them for sordid gain. The heart and truth of God was greatly misunderstood, if it was known at all.
And then came an “Age of Enlightenment”, in which God was “reasoned” by some out of existence.
The enemy is clever, and uses the trend of the day to deceive people.
Unfortunately, we sometimes seem to be less clever, either following the trend of the day for the sake of following it, or clinging so tightly to tradition that we miss the truth.
