John 9:40 And some of the Pharisees which were with him heard these words, and said unto him, Are we blind also?
Ever heard the phrase none are so blind as those who refuse to see? Sadly I see some who are even worse than those. We have experience in these times those who are like the Pharisees of John 9:40. These are those who have heard the truth and come to an understanding that the truth is talking about themselves and in their arrogance choose to stay blind. These blind men are arrogant enough to say “We are in charge here, we make the laws and we will have our way.”
Psalms 14:1 The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.
These blind men say they are not fools. They are well educated, passed the bar and now make the laws. They have overcome ignorance only to surrender to the darkness of their own hearts. They read Plato rather than Job, Socrates rather than Isaiah and Voltaire rather than the Psalms. They are more likely to believe Nemo controls The Matrix than the God of Abraham controls the universe.
Sadly for those of us who know and follow Truth, we are more likely to live the life of Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah: where the prince of eunuchs gave them new names. Just as the leadership of those days stopped worshipping God, history is repeating itself, and the innocent suffer because of it.
So what are we to do about it now? I can only say to follow the example of Daniel and no matter what happens, no matter where life takes us, stand for the truth and bow before no man.
