1st Peter 1:14-15 As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: (15) But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation;
Ignorance is a state of being uninformed (lack of knowledge).
I have a lot of experience making ignorant mistakes. I have done things wrong simply because I did not know the right way to do them.
Probably everyone reading this can look back and laugh at some silly mistakes you made just because you didn't know better. I am reminded of the young man who said that his new bride obviously thought the smoke detector was the timer for when she was cooking. Hopefully a little experience and some cooking lessons helped her.
We all lack knowlege in some areas and none of us know all there is to know about God's Word. Sadly many are content to remain ignorant of what the Bible says is sin and go on living unholy lives. Matters are made worse because those who are ignorant of God's Word often become vicious and attack those who have an abiding love for the Bible. We are the ones who are accused of ignorance when in fact the reverse is true.
I believe the smoke detector is already screaming and it is time for us to take some lessons from God's Word on living holy lives for Him. We can never do this until we begin to accept the Bible as God's Word and try to incorporate it into our lives by studying it and by trying to live according to what God says.
