“Every plant which My heavenly Father has not planted will be uprooted. Let them alone. They are blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind leads the blind, both will fall into a ditch.”
- Matthew 15:13b-14 (NKJV)
When we are born, we are blinded to the truth of good and evil. Even if we are good in behavior, we are still ignorant of what is good and evil. It is Jesus who gives us the light of life from the darkness of sin and death. We don't know the difference between good and evil until we come to the knowledge of what good and evil is. Therefore, we are born blind of the knowledge of good and evil until good and evil is revealed or taught. It is Jesus who brings us into the knowledge of the truth and delivers us from falling into evil as we pursue righteousness in Him. It is Jesus who brings us into the light and the life of truth so that we do not sin. It is the Holy Spirit who convicts us as we come into the revelation knowledge of true life so that we come out of sin that brings death.
