My name is Jean Skipper, and I'm a working artist who's living my dream in North Carolina. The weather is beautiful; the people are warm and wonderful; and I'm exactly where I want to be in this world.

My new blog...

As you may have noticed, I've been conspicuously absent from my blog lately. The year is flying by even faster than usual thanks to my new venture at Artist Alley. I love every minute of it, and I'm truly living my lifelong dream.

A few weeks ago, I established a blog for The Alley. You can view it at .

I don't plan to discontinue my personal blog; but for the time being, things will be quiet here. The new blog will be the best place to keep up with my antics for the forseeable future, and I hope that you'll visit soon.

Perhaps the biggest threat to Christianity is, "learned ignorance."

Acts 2:38 Then Peter said to them, "Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.(NKJV)

Ninety nine percent of those who believe that baptized "for" the remission of sins actually means baptized "because" your sins have already been forgiven, learn that from Bible commentaries, preachers, or books about Bible doctrine. In other words, learned ignorance. You cannot believe the "for" means "because of" by reading Acts 2:38 in the Bible. It has to be by, learned ignorance.

Romans 5:12 Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, thus death spread to all men, because all sinned---(NKJV)

Ninety nine percent of those who believe that unborn babies and infants are guilty of original sin, inherited from Adam, believe it because they have been miss taught by reading Bible commentaries, listening to preachers, or reading books about Bible doctrine. That would be, learned ignorance. Romans 5:12 clearly states, death through sin spread to all men, "because all sinned."

God does not create sinners. Satan was not created a sinner, he rebelled against God and became a sinner. Adam and Eve were not created as sinners, they disobeyed God becoming sinners. All men are not born guilty of Adam's sin, they are not born sinners, men are sinners because they sin.

Matthew 4:10 Then Jesus said to him. "Away with you, Satan! For it is written, "You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only you shall serve." (NKJV)

You cannot read Matthew 4:10 and believe it is permissible to to worship a dead Pope, the Virgin Mary, and other dead saints my offering up prayers to them. You can only believe that by reading church catechisms, listing to priests, and reading extra-Biblical Catholic doctrine. That would be, learned ignorance.

There is no Scripture that teaches to pray to men, dead or alive. Worship is reserved for God and His Son Jesus the Christ.

The Bereans had the cure for learned ignorance, they searched the Scriptures for the truth.

Acts 17:10-11 Then the brethren immediately sent Paul and Silas away by night to Berea. When they arrived, they went to the synagogue of the Jews. 11 These were more fair-minded than those in Thessalonica, in that that received the word with all readiness, and searched the Scriptures daily to to find out whether these things were so. (NKJV)

Will learned ignorance be excused on Judgement Day?
