Agnotology and the Spread of Ignorance

We recently learned of the word 'agnotology' and after doing some research we learned that it had an important meaning, as it relates to our work and the spreading of the Word of God and the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

We also started to use the word in our regular communication with organizations and people as 'agnotology'  is alive and well in today's world. It also became the source for our latest article 'The True Christ vs False Christs'.

Agnotology (formerly agnatology) is the study of culturally induced ignorance or doubt, particularly the publication of inaccurate or misleading scientific data. The neologism was coined by Robert N. Proctor, a Stanford University professor specializing in the history of science and technology. Its name derives from the Neoclassical Greek word ἄγνωσις, agnōsis, "not knowing" (cf. Attic Greek ἄγνωτος "unknown"), and -λογία, - logia.

There are many causes of culturally induced ignorance. These include the influence of the media, either through neglect or as a result of deliberate misrepresentation and manipulation. It is important to recognize the word 'deliberate' as we have learned by reaching out to the people of this world and key contacts in the Media Industry.

Besides the Religious and Political Authorities, the Media, as the voice of the world for the last 100 years, has been a very influential stronghold. But thanks be to God, the Media Industry has become a self-destructive industry and an industry in decline (Luke 11:21,22).  

The following are two excerpts from the article Influence of the Media listed on our website.  

"Public opinion is dangerous because most public opinion is the view of the media. If the media do not like something, their bias taints information getting to the public, and this forms public opinion. Public opinion is never based on research and facts. The public uses the media for its sole source of information."

"As a member of the local business community, the local newspapers are the most important element, as society is shaped by what it hears and reads and it is conditioned by the events that influence the mind of every person. You reap what you sow."

The only thing The Chronicle Herald (our local paper) was able to do was block our email addresses four years ago, in order to protect their reporters from lack of knowledge and wisdom on social issues, and in order for their readers to be deceived. The story is the same at other newspaper and is the very reason for the decline of the Print Media and also the Electronic Media, as they continue to ignore our message of Repentance.

We invite you to study what it means to Repent, as it means a lot more than what by nature you have been conditioned to believe.

Corporations and governmental agencies also contribute to agnotology through secrecy and suppression of information, document destruction, and myriad forms of inherent or avoidable culturopolitical selectivity, inattention, and forgetfulness.

Our story with Politicians is no different. We have attempted to reach out to Federal and Provincial Government Officials for many years, and even though they are unable to provide answers on every social issue, they continue to ignore our voice.

Agnotology also focuses on how and why diverse forms of knowledge do not "come to be", or are ignored or delayed. For example: the truth about God, Jesus Christ, the deceptions of Religion, the Imploding Health-Care System, the Imploding Mental Health Crisis, the Opioid Drug and Abuse Crisis, Cancer and every other disease, etc., etc.

The only words that are able to overcome ‘agnotology’ are ‘Questions’ and ‘Dialogue’ about the message and testimony we communicate, but those are words that continue to be ignored by Religious and Political Leaders, Health-Care Officials, the Media, etc., etc.

The Word of God teaches us that we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places (Eph. 6:12).

Notwithstanding, the Word of God also teaches that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil (John 3:19).

Besides the spiritual powers of this world 'Agnotology' is a contributing factor as part of the self-destructive nature of mankind and continuous separation from God.

Our message never changes: Ye must repent and turn from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God (Acts 26:18). Without the Baptism of Repentance (Matthew 3:8; Mark 1:4; Luke 3:3) you will remain spiritually blind and separated from God and the Word of God will forever remain a mystery to you, which was kept secret since the world began (Matthew 13:35; Mark 4:11; Romans 16:25; 1 Cor. 2:7; Eph. 3:3-9; Col. 1:26; Rev. 10:7).

All of the pages and articles listed on our website explain how and by whom you have been deceived and what you must do to be reunited with the only true and living God.

Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it (Matthew 7:13,14).

All we can do is stand at the door and knock but it is up to every individual to open the door (Rev. 3:20).

Seek, and ye shall find (Matthew 7:7).
