Some treat Bible knowledge as if it comes with a light-dimmer switch.
They find something they don’t like and then slowly begin to turn the light down till it’s gone.
The power of the light to “enlighten” remains, but the dark veil of intentional ignorance prevents it from shinning.
Such is the way we will all attempt to soothe our conscience if we’re not careful.
“And we have given up the secret things of shame, not walking in false ways, and not making use of the word of God with deceit; but by the revelation of what is true, as before God, we have the approval of every man’s sense of right and wrong. But if our good news is veiled, it is veiled from those who are on the way to destruction: Because the god of this world has made blind the minds of those who have not faith, so that the light of the good news of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, might not be shining on them. For our preaching is not about ourselves, but about Christ Jesus as Lord, and ourselves as your servants through Jesus. Seeing that it is God who said, Let light be shining out of the dark, who has put in our hearts the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.” (2 Corinthians 4:2-6 BBE)
