    Yes, I think you are right and it involves more than ignorance.

    Conscious can only take you so far, being it can become seared according to Paul (2 Timothy 4:2).

    But the real point, of course, is to make clear that Christianity is open to the Gentiles just as much as to Jews, and that Jews cannot expect special treatment from God due simply to the religion they follow.

    By the way, what on earth makes you think that an atheist will take any notice of something written in a book he has no faith in?

    Very very true, because we are fallible humans for the most part believing in the many diverse conflicting religions of different cultures that consider what is true belief believe differently, and everyone considering their belief sincerely.

    Question: Do fundamentalist Christians sincerely and honestly consider science as science. Many Christians who endorse Theistic Evolution are more honest and sincere about science. For the most part atheists are sincere and honest about science.

    2"preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great patience and instruction. "
    Please explain , I do not see much related. Paul gives instruction to person of higher consciousness how to teach people of lower consciousness?

    Ignorance, imo, is general term, it leads to not connecting to the source .

    Does not work, and side steps the issue of what is 'sin' or wrongful acts from the Christian perspective. If this is the case there is no reasonable justification for Christianity. You are reducing Christianity to a political movement, which would justify the atheist view of the religion.

    Than your misusing 'ignorance,' and it is the wrong word. Were using the English language here.

    You misunderstand roots of Abrahamic religions. It is about changing consciousness and bringing nature of men to acceptable by God level, it starts with removing state of ignorance.

    Good for Him, I guess? Who cares? Please answer me... why would this matter? If He suddenly stopped, would I even know that it was Him doing the stopping? He would literally have to come in front of my face and let me know He had been the source of my heart beats and breaths, and then tell me that He was now going to take it away, and then follow through and stop my breathing and heart beating for me to know that He was the one responsible. So... let Him go ahead and do so, if that's what He wants. Well? Where is He at? I'm waiting. How long do you think before He shows up? Oh, He won't? Of course He won't.

    You theists talk a big, huge game... but you have nothing to actually bring to the field. Nothing but specious words and laughably empty promises. It's ridiculous.

    They wrote to justify their belief from an ancient worldview perspective.

    It became political today especially in the West. It was not and never meant to be. I am a Gnostic type. "Wrongful acts" is a psychic definition, spiritual one goes to agnoya
