Will God hold believers accountable for the truth they could have known, but they rejected the opportunies for various reasons?
Meaning, if a person had the access and chance to know the truth, will Yahweh mark it as sin, if a believer rejects the opportunity to learn more of Him, about themselve, and His kingdom. I am talking about stuff coming accross our path, that might seem like new or different in view and prospective, even contradictory at times.
I know a person who rejects the truth when they are presented with the gospel, will be held accountable for walking away from that truth.
What of the believer, who could escape additional lies post salvation that could have set them free.
Will Yahweh one day reveal to all persons when they rejected truth? I believe He will so all mankind, to include believers who still maintained the lie when they could have had the truth.
I.E. truths such as the significants and applications of certain Scriptural patterns, emblems, and events.
What say you................
Joh 8:32 - and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free."
Joh 14:17 -that is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it does not see Him or know Him, but you know Him because He abides with you and will be in you.
2Pe 1:12 - Therefore, I will always be ready to remind you of these things, even though you already know them, and have been established in the truth which is present with you.
1Th 5:21 - But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good;
Acts 17:10-12 10 The brethren immediately sent Paul and Silas away by night to Berea, and when they arrived, they went into the synagogue of the Jews. 11 Now these were more noble-minded than those in Thessalonica, for they received the word with great eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see whether these things were so. 12 Therefore many of them believed, along with a number of prominent Greek women and men.
The Bereans had the right ideal by not rejecting it outright, but examining it. Hence they held themselves accountable to the opportunity and chance to know truth.
