“Now, brothers, I know that you acted in ignorance, as did your leaders.”
In the Christmas Carol, Charles Dickens highlights the 2 extremes still found today in our society, the want of the poor and the ignorance of the wealthy. If you have never read it I encourage you to do so this Christmas time.
Ignorance is found in every class not just the wealthy.
Ignorance cause people to believe things that are not true, like the earth is flat!
There are many humorous examples of people’s ignorance. But ignorance also causes pain, division and prejudice. Ignorance causes war. The world is in a mess in many places because of ignorance.
Ignorance is passed down the generations.
Ignorance can be taught from temples, mosques, synagogues and churches.
Last night I saw my neighbour put her Christmas tree up.
Ignorance takes God’s gift and hangs him on a different tree. A tree of wood that was the act of salvation for everyone.
This month many will be ignorant.
It’s up to us to enlighten them.
