13:52 A Lexicon of Sin: Culpable Ignorance
"An ignorance or a blindness that both causes sin and exacerbates the guilt or the fault of sin.”
To be ignorant in the mystery of Christ is to be wise in their own conceits.
Ignorance is an impediment to our sanctification. Ignorance gets in the way of believers growing in grace.
"The basic problem is that carnal men, natural men, are ignorant of God’s righteousness (Rom 10:3). And when you are ignorant of God’s righteousness, you always want to figure out some way of establishing your own righteousness. If damnation has a single root, and it does, it is this: the most important repentance for man to learn is repentance of his virtues, repentance of his own righteousness.”
