“Why does the devil keep our people illiterate? So that he can use them for a tool and also a slave. He keeps them blind to themselves so he can master them. Illiterate means ignorant. (6/1-14)”
Ignorance can be defined as “lacking in knowledge or training; unlearned .” The key part of the definition is lacking in knowledge. If one doesn’t know, then how can they be expected to act as if they do know. I encountered a perfect illustration of ignorance earlier this morning. I went to the store around the way to get an energy drink. On my way back from the store, this brother addressed me with the following words, “Man, big brotha’ I got that diabetes knowin’ I don’t need this soda. Hey brotha, you know anybody that use that Cialis?” Now the fact that he said he knows that he doesn’t need to drink the pop because he has diabetes would make one think that he’s not ignorant. B.u.t. the fact that with that knowledge, he doesn’t further know how to apply said knowledge in order to prevent himself from acting to his own detriment shows and proves that in fact, he is ignorant. This is really sad born u truth certainly not surprising. The question is, how do those that do not know and are therefore ignorant, go from not knowing to knowing? The answer is, someone has to make knowledge born to them. The person to do it very well may be you. That’s not to say that we should soapbox, or preach to people, born u truth the only way to fight ignorance is with knowledge. If you have knowledge of self, then it is your duty as a civilized person “to teach the uncivilized people who are savages.”
We know that per the wisdom degree in the 1-14, savage means a person that has lost the knowledge of himself and is living a beast way of life. Out of that segment of the degree, I want to pinpoint the word lost. The degree is indicating that not only has said person lost knowledge, born u truth they are therefore lost in an overall sense. What is needed is a transformation from being lost, to lost-found. Via this recovery from mental death, a savage can find self, and therefore come to know self. The knowledge understanding degree states that the devil continues daily to teach the 85% about a mystery god. In this sense the devil is working against them. Self cipher they need someone to start working for them. If the devil continues daily, then so should God and Earth. Think about that the next time you have an opportunity to teach civilization, righteousness, the knowledge of self, or the science of everything in life. Keep your 120 sword over the devil’s head so that he can see it, and so he can see the blade coming…claim your button for the lapel of your coat and take someone with you to the holy city of Mecca.
