Confessions of a screwed up middle aged man: who is truly being “ignorant?”


So the other day I posted about the new equivalent of the “master/slave” relationship, which if you did not read that post it is the employer/employee dynamic [ The new master and slaves association ].
So anyway. This became a topic in a discussion. When this correlation was shown to be a problem in someone’s live. This person became angry and stated that I was being “ignorant.”
Now here is the dilemma. Since I was directly paraphrasing from Ephesians 6:5-9.
Who is being called “ignorant?”
Before I go further in this. I feel it is necessary to mention the teaching of 2 Timothy 4:1-5
“I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; 2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine. 3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. 5 But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.”
Since we are to help those that profess to being “Christian” by reproving, rebuking and exhorting. This was done in full accordance to the Bible. What was shown to this person was Biblical teachings.
So, with that in mind, the person was not calling me “ignorant,” but the Word of God ignorant. Since the Word of God is God, then this person had just called God ignorant.
So we are back to the question:
“Who truly is being called ‘ignorant?’”
From what I have just shown. It is God that is being called this.
I will let it lie there.
