3. Is it therefore in your opinion better for us to act in ignorance? If so then why to Christians keep trying to tell me about God?
The fear is justified, since there isn't anyone that can pull us from His
hand or protect us from His judgment; however, the grace and mercy
that we are shown through the love He has for us is by far greater.
I'm also saying that we tend to let things go we should not, or do
things we should not because that is in our heart to do. I will speak for
myself but I do tend to from time to time do things I know are wrong
while I'm doing them, because I want to, even if I am struggling to
not them them!
I'm not saying that it is better to act in ignorance, God through Jesus
Christ has setup a waya of salvation, a life raft in the storm of life you
either get in or you don't, both choices will lead you somewhere.
Knowing God is a means to reject the sin of this life too, without Him
why would you?
