After reading another post, I am curious as to how many Christians feel it is appropriate to directly call a person ignorant. I would like a to hear from Christians on this. I am a little surprised this word is thought of as civil but it gets hard to tell if it is approved by Christians after a lot of post.
I couldn't imagine going into church, find a person singing the wrong song, or even giving false informaiton and calling them ignorant.
It seems like a degrading word to me. I wouldn't tell anyone they were ignorant. If a person tells me I believe in an invisble guy in the sky, that is obvioulsy untrue. I don't believe God lives in the sky, but I don't feel "ignorant" is the appropriate word to use.
Am I alone on this? Do many Christians support the liberal use of the word ignorant? You really can't be wrong on this answer, I am just curious as to how many feel this way.

I am a Christian and "ignorant" isn't a degrading word, it's a word do describe that someone is unaware of the truth.
I agree. I think people misunderstand the meaning of the word. It doesn't mean they're stupid, it just means they're uniformed, or unaware.
