Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch. Matthew 15:14
We have that today. In ministry, In media, In government, In Education, In Entertainment. All sorts of people purporting to know "The Truth" and leading people to a ditch from which many will never emerge.
Do we ignore them.. do we tolerate them, do we argue with them, do we denounce them? Jesus said that we should ignore them.
But what of those deceived and mindlessly going to the ditch.
I have personally struggled with this. This is what I hear the Lord saying about those so misled,
"Some of these will emerge bruised and confused. They will be looking for answers. Answers I have placed in your mouth. Do not be afraid to give them what I have shown you. Some will reject the truth, even in their despair and defeat. Even if you were to show them a sign from ME.. it would make no difference. Their hearts are hard, their blindness is intentional, and they will die in their deception."
It's hard, I was deceived into thinking I could show them the truth.. but alas.. no.
Speak not in the ears of a fool: for he will despise the wisdom of your words. Proverbs 23:9
