Good post from Steve Quayle's website. I have copied and pasted the article here and you can find it also at this link from Steve's site.
The Bible warns us as Christians to “walk circumspectly,” which means in plain English, not to be stupid (a.k.a., willingly ignorant or dumb on purpose).
THE PEOPLE ARE NOT AS DUMB AS WE GIVE THEM CREDIT FOR BECAUSE IF THEY WERE STUPID AS SUCH IT WOULD BE SOME KIND OF AN EXCUSE BUT THEY ARE WILLINGLY IGNORANT. as the author of the article so well puts it.
it is the willingness and intent to be lazy which is bringing the judgement the tyranny on the western world. Sloth is a deadly sin and one of the sins of this age is this mental form of slothness. this is a willing state which is why we who are awake as we call it shake our heads in amazement at these people, what we dont understand is they are not stupid, they are not dumb they choose to be ignorant they choose not to think because to do so means they have to have a social responsibility even if they dont do anything being aware and concerned is being responsible. the bible says with much knowledge comes much sorrow. No wonder we live in the Prozac generation THESE WILLINGLY IGNORANT MASSES know fine rightly what is going on they can see it but in their subconscious mind they have chosen to believe a lie because it means they can live on this earth a little while longer in what they think is ignorant bliss but is actually willfull ignorance. They dont want to believe the truth and this means they know its the truth but they reject it. JESUS SAID HE WAS THE TRUTH, the root of the problem is spiritual. In the same way Jonah was sleeping in the bowels of the ship while a storm raged outside with the sailors above terrified these people can hear the roaring waves, they can feel the ship moving violently but they choose to sleep in slothful slumber. If you ever tried to wake a lazy person up who wants to stay in bed and wont get up they sleep all day and come out in the afternoon when it starts to get dark stay up half the night watching television and then go back to bed in the early hours. the cycle repeats until the person ends up middle aged overweight, depressed and sick he-she still living with his parents, That's a good definition of America throw in prescribed drugs for depression which usually follows such a state and voila. We have a society transformed , of course i am only talking about mental laziness or sloth although the physical definition rings true to much of society as well. anyhow the article it hit it spot on the head the lukewarm are lukewarm because they dont want to be shaken from their slothful slumber the truth makes them uncomfortable, God doesnt comfortable he want's passion Apathy is the antithesis of the whole gospel of jesus christ , christians in america and in the western world used to be hot for GOD now we just go along to get along, we deserve our prisons they have made for us. We made cell's for our minds a long time ago when we stopped searching for truth and embraced the lies, I guess Nothing has changed in 6000 or so years give or take lucifer is still peddling the same old lie, whispering into our itching ears nothing much has changed from the first lie to man in the garden of Eden. The apple doesnt fall far from the tree. AUTHOR R.C. MURRAY--WELL DONE HE NAILED THE CAUSE OF APATHY AND STUPIDITY AMONGST BELIEVERS IN NAME ONLY
