Perish without knowledge

Pushan and Souradeep were among the four schoolboys who were being trained in boating in Rabindr Sarobar in Kolkata. Along with the coach the boat capsized but was flipped back to position, however it was filled with water, floating just below the surface. The coach asked them to just hold on to the boat or swim to shore. The coach was holding on to the boat, while boys swam, which is when Pushan and Souradeep drowned on 22 May 2022. Devansh and Sanskar said: their friends would have lived if they had known the boat was designed to be unsinkable. (Telegraph 23 May 2022) The boys who drowned knew swimming, rowing the boat, were physically fit but died as they did not have critical information that their boat was unsinkable. The boat was full of water but did not sink, holding on to that would have saved their lives.
“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge; because you have rejected knowledge, I reject you from being a priest to me. And since you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children. (Hosea 4:6)
1) Lack of knowledge: The knowledge of God, His works, expectations, and attributes were revealed to the Nation of Israel by Mosaic Law and God’s numerous acts. Yet, they did not know God or responded to Him in love and obedience.
2) Rejected knowledge: The Israelite were acquainted or familiar with knowledge, but they rejected it. They considered that knowledge of God was useless, and it was a waste of time to study and meditate. For them, the Word of God was a burden that should be thrown off.
3) Forgot knowledge: There were others in Israel, who studied it but did not remember or allow it to sink in their mind. The words were like seeds that fell on the wayside, as the birds took them off, Satan had snatched them away. (Matthew 13:4,19)
Those who do not esteem and receive the Word of God in faith are liable to be destroyed.
Do I love, learn, and live the Word?
