Blindness is the car that the lost Ride into Hell.

This I say, therefore, and testify in the Lord, that you should no longer walk as the of the gentiles walk, in the futility of their mind, having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart…Ephesians 4:17,18.


Blindness, porosis; Strong’s # 4457. This word primarily means “a covering with a callus,” hardening, callousness. Also, this medical term describes the process by which extremities of fractured bones are set by an ossifying, or calloused petrifying.

Sometimes it can describe a hard substance in the eye that blinds. Used metaphorically, porosis denotes a dulled spiritual perceptivity, spiritual blindness, and hardness.

    Porosis seems to be rampant in America today. I know that I’m not immune to the hardness of the culture around us. We have taken porosis to a new level, however. All one has to do is read the newspaper or watch the news to see the blindness of the majority.

    “Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools and changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and four-footed beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves: who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.”

    – Romans 1:22-25

    It sounds like the world around us.

    May God have mercy.

      I agree about the world around us. It takes the living God of the Scriptures to bring people out of the kingdom of darkness which has total control over their lives in thoughts, actions and deeds. The deceitfulness of sin keeps them in the prison until they cry out to the Lord.
