Willfull ignorance, comfort zones, and complacency
Willful ignorance can be framed as the deliberate decision to avoid or disregard information that conflicts with our preexisting beliefs and opinions. It is a common tendency that can be linked with our desire to remain within our comfort zones.
But if we are often willfully ignorant, our comfort zones turn into “complacency zones”. We settle, wither away, and decay if we remain complacent. Comfort is resting to recover; complacency is avoiding personal accountability.
To wish for comfort or even salvation presupposes that we are willing to do the work.
John 9:1-41. If you were blind, you would have no sin; but now you are saying, ‘We see,’ so your sin remains.
