Innocence is Not Ignorance

“I want you to be wise as to what is good and innocent as to what is evil.”
(Romans 16:19)

I am horrified, disgusted, and appalled at the bold-face obvious crime being perpetrated upon our children and young people under the guise of education when in actuality it is an assault on their innocence and on the sole right of parents.

I am talking about the so-called “sex education” being approved by school boards and taught to our children. In reality it is pornography and perversion of the filthiest kind, and I am glad many parents have become aware of this and are standing up and pushing back to eradicate all this filth that passes as education which our tax dollars are paying for.

Allow me to first explain the difference between “ignorance” and “innocence”. Both involve a lack of knowledge and experience; the difference lies in their implication and application. Implication is the inferred meaning and insinuation or suggestion to be understood. This points to the intention of what is being implanted in the minds of our children. Application is the act of putting it to a special use or purpose. What is this being applied to and for what purpose?

The other obvious issue is that the subject of sex education is the sole responsibility of the parents at the appropriate time and the proper emphasis in the lives of their children. So, why do the schools think that it is alright for them to usurp this parental right and step in with their filth to rob our children of their innocence in total violation of this proper order?

All humans at any age begin a quest of learning from the time we are born. This eliminates ignorance as we grow and mature. It is up to the parents to know and seek good knowledge to pass on to their children as they grow and develop. We are all born with a sense of innocence which represents purity and free from the taint of evil.

Even adults are supposed to maintain innocence when it comes to evil as we read in this text: “I want you to be wise as to what is good and innocent as to what is evil.” This involves our free will and the choices we make. Ignorance often results from a deliberate decision to ignore or avoid available information where innocence may be due to circumstances where no conscious choice is involved.

Protecting our children and ourselves from evil is a needed trait that should be zealously preserved. This is never to be confused with ignorance.

Let us step up the fight to preserve our children’s innocence at all costs against those who are working diligently to contaminate them.

“Behold, I am sending you out like sheep among wolves; therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves.”
(Matthew 10:16)
