IGNORANCE GONE TO SEED
“Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.”
—Rom. 1:21, 22
There seems to be no lack of people today who are ready, in an authoritative tone, to make one asinine (def., extremely stupid or foolish) statement after another. In the farm community where I spent much of my youth, men and women would often classify the opinions of people like this as “ignorance gone to seed” — an agricultural metaphor, evoking a mental picture of a field that is so far gone that it is no longer flowering, and is past the point of cultivation.”
There’s a whole lot of “ignorance gone to seed” types at large today, pontificating here and there and making no sense whatsoever. They’ve come to the place where they’ve lost the capacity to make any sense. And they’re past the point of any cultivation of their thinking. Those clamoring for the unlawful impeachment of our President are a perfect case in point.
People who form the leadership of, make up the base of support for, and believe in the Platform and doings of the Democratic Party personify “ignorance gone to seed.” These are the folks who legislate for the killing of unborn and newborn babies, gender-neutral locker rooms and restrooms, sex change operations for children, convicts and whoever else, same sex marriage and mandatory education in perversion for elementary school children. These are those who want free speech restriction, universal gun bans, open borders and socialistic government, etc., etc., etc.
These people are “so far gone” intellectually and integrity-wise that they are too ignorant to know that they ought to be ashamed of themselves for promoting and supporting the things that they do. They are “so far gone” that they feel entitled and obliged to lecture the nation about American values, family, the dignity of human life and all areas of right and wrong. One would have to look long and hard to find a greater example of ignorance gone to seed.
People can buy into a line of godless, evil, thinking for so long that it makes demented dunces out of them. We have a whole political party, aptly identified by the image of a donkey that has gone down that road. We have a mainstream media, entertainment industry, public education system and many in the corporate business world that have done the same thing. They demonstrate nothing but contempt for our nation’s heritage, our Constitution, the American flag and any vestige of patriotism. And, they stand against everything and everyone who stands for God, the Bible and the Christian faith. It’s time for Americans, in a serious way, to stop supporting them with their votes at the polls, stop watching and listening to their programs, stop buying their products and start getting themselves and their children out from under their influence.
