Don’t Hide Your Head in the Sand…

Read: Acts 17
Marked: Acts 17:30-31, “Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent, because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom He has ordained. He has given assurance of this to all by raising Him from the dead.”

The men Paul spoke to worshipped, among their pantheon of gods, the Unknown God. This, Paul says, was done in ignorance, and so he revealed this god to them. Much is done because of ignorance, but once truth is manifested we can no longer hide behind our ignorance.

God will not overlook it. The truth is, God will judge the world in righteousness through Jesus Christ. The proof offered is Christ’s resurrection. We can choose to deny this proof, but we can’t remain ignorant of it.
