Dark Dungeon of Ignorance

The dark dungeon of ignorance! (William Secker, "The Consistent Christian" 1660)

"God has called you out of darkness--into His marvelous light." 1 Peter 2:9

The papists cry up 'ignorance' as the mother of devotion. But we cry down 'ignorance' as the father of superstition.

It is no wonder that Christ should be so much undesired--when He is so much unknown.

Satan binds all his captives down in the dark dungeon of ignorance! Like the cunning falconer, he blindfolds his birds--that he may carry them to hell more securely!

Darkness is the devil's element--and the sinner's punishment.

Utter darkness--is the recompense of inward darkness. "My people perish--for lack of knowledge." Hosea 4:6

An ignorant man neither cares what he does--nor knows where he is going. When such a one is taken off the earth--he cannot be taken into heaven! "Taking vengeance with flaming fire on those who do not know God!" 2 Thessalonians 1:8

"The Light has come into the world, but men love the darkness."

Men are actually happy in their ignorance.

Enter the Word of God to wake some from their slumber!
