Ignorance in Abortion

There are several types of spiritual ignorance that keep people in darkness.

1. They are natural men. They do not have the Spirit of God. They are normal.
“The man without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them because they are spiritually discerned.” 1 Corinthians 2:14

2. The enemy of our souls has blinded them.
“The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.” 2 Corinthians 4:4

3. He chooses to remain ignorant of the will of God.
“If anyone chooses to do God’s will, he will find out whether my teaching comes from God or whether I speak on my own.” John 7:17

4. They love darkness because they do evil.
“This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed.” John 3:19-20

5. If they are ignorant of the law they think that they can claim innocence in the violation. “If a person sins and does what is forbidden in any of the LORD's commands, even though he does not know it, he is guilty and will be held responsible.” Leviticus 5:17

“I did not know it was wrong to marry an unbeliever.” At the time of the marriage she did not want to find out. She wanted to stay ignorant.

“I did not know the baby I was carrying was a baby.” At the time of the abortion she did not want to find out that the baby was a baby. She refused an ultrasound. She did not want to find out that the act of abortion was immoral.
