That is not the way you learned

    Ephesians 4:17-20 says, “Now this I say and testify in the Lord, that you must no longer walk as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their minds. [18] They are darkened in their understanding, alienated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them, due to their hardness of heart. [19] They have become callous and have given themselves up to sensuality, greedy to practice every kind of impurity. [20] But that is not the way you learned Christ!”

    -Futile minds (empty minds)
    -Darkened understanding (lack of true understanding)
    -Ignorance (lack of knowledge)
    -Calloused (so used to evil it doesn’t bother them)
    -Given to sensuality and greediness (following own desires)

    We must choose to know truth or we will unknowingly be like those above. In Christ we are not expected to ignorantly follow, but rather to seek, learn, and know truth. Ignorance is the easy way but it will not lead us to where we want to go.
