"To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them." Isaiah 8:20.
"There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death." Proverbs 16:25.
... Ignorance is no excuse for error or sin, when there is every opportunity to know the will of God... with a prayerful dependence upon God and a sincere desire to learn His will ...(we) must come with a humble and teachable spirit to obtain knowledge from the great I AM...
...With those who have slighted God's mercy and abused His grace, the heart of long-suffering love yet pleads. "Wherefore He saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light. See then that ye walk circumspectly, . . . redeeming the time, because the days are evil." Ephesians 5:14-16.
