"Seeing the Truth"
John 9:41 Jesus said, "If you were blind, you would not be guilty of sin; but now that you claim you can see, your guilt remains."
Jesus was talking to the Jews about their belief in Moses but not in him. They claimed to know the truth.
As for me, the way I understand this statement from Jesus is, since I have seen the truth, God holds me more accountable for my sins than for those who have not seen the truth or who have yet to understand it. A realization I had recently was that I hold high expectations for my kids. I am not being fair to my kids, though. They are still young and are still learning the truth about Jesus. I cannot expect them to live as I do. Also, I know I have much to learn about God, and he does not hold me accountable for those sins I have committed in ignorance. If God forgives me of my sins, through the blood of Jesus, than I need to do the same for my kids and for those who do not know Jesus. I need to be patient and loving toward those who are blind to the truth, just as God is with me. When I see people supporting issues that are against Biblical truth, instead of reacting with judgment and hateful comments, I pray for them to see the truth.
