We’ve all heard the phrase, “Ignorance of the law is no defense. ”With all of their culture, reasoning and education, the Athenians were ignorant when it came to the one true God. And so along with the gospel, Paul gave them a stern warning. Soon God’s Son, Jesus Christ, would be returning to judge the earth and its people. And no longer would God overlook the ignorance of those who reject Him. This warning Paul gave to the Athenians, he gives to us as well. The time for ignorance is over. Now is the time for repentance. For the days are growing darker and the appointed day will soon be upon us. Christ in all of His glory will be retuning to judge the world in righteousness. And ignorance of the Lord will be no defense.
