My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children. Hosea 4:6
The people were destroyed because of the lack of knowledge. But what kind of knowledge? Look at the last half of the verse. They forgot the law of God. People are destroyed when they forget the law of God. Is it any wonder Satan has worked and is working so hard to get and keep the Ten Commandments out of our schools and other public places? Satan knows the people will be destroyed if they do not know the law of God. Why are people destroyed for not knowing the law of God? The law of God brings the knowledge of sin (Romans 3:20, Romans 7:7). People will not know they are sinners without knowing the law of God. The law also brings us to Christ (Galatians 3:24).
Let us counter the efforts of the devil. Let us post the Ten Commandments. Let us fight to get the Ten Commandments posted back in our schools and public places. Let us help prevent the destruction of the people.
