And what I mean by being blind to this truth is that often you hear "it is not my fault" or "I can't help it" and so you have these folks who feel that they aren't going to be held accountable or it is unjust that they are suffering because something they done. You and I as well as others on this website have not lost sight that even though we are all sinners, we are all still God's children. Being that I am not better than any other sinner, I cannot help but wander if I were to disobey the Churches teachings about Birth Control, the Sanctity of Life, and Premarital Sex, like so many are doing, what my life would be like.
I understand better Elizabeth. If people are "invincibly ignorant" of what they are doing, I wonder if the suffering is lessened? A priest once told me that God holds us at a different level of responsibility once we KNOW something is wrong to do than He does when we don't know, but I don't know if the suffering i s lessened if we are invincibly ignorant...
