Isaiah 33:15 Those who walk righteously and speak with sincerity, who reject unjust gain, and shake their hands that they hold no bribe, who stops their ears from hearing of bloodshed and choose to shut their eyes from looking upon evil.
The basis of that scripture is that to be righteous one must shut out evil and not embody it. I wanted to recognize how humans will censor things they think to be evil with one of the things that's censored (scripture). In that way, I think we limit a large field of understanding. Things that I noticed we censor or try to shield ourselves from are: nudity, sex,blaspheme,extra terrestrial intelligent life, violence, cussing, environmental issues, secrets, actions, the chemicals, our food, water, language, knowledge, history, cures for terminal illnesses, answers, questions, religion, books, and stories, and I'm sure if I spent more time thinking on it, I could come up with many others... my message with this is Don't let someone else shut your eyes.
