Luke 12:46-48 And Sins Committed In Ignorance

Luke 12:46-48 illustrates “The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers. And that servant, which knew his lord’s will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.”

This passage is so clear on the “sins of ignorance” subject, no explanation should be needed. However, notice ..

The servant of verse 48 knew NOT his lord’s will.

Nevertheless, that servant stood condemned for his actions that were committed in ignorance:

· the things that he did were worthy of stripes (condemnation)

· he received stripes (will there be any stripes in heaven?)

· he was cut in sunder, and appointed his portion with the unbelievers

Question: According to this passage, what is the condition of a saint or sinner who commits a sin of ignorance?
