Question: What scripture in the bible says that God gives some people "eyes not to see" and "ears not to hear" the truth and why would He do this? Also, does this apply to people today?

Romans 11:8 says that God has given them the "spirit of slumber," eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear unto this day. We will also read of this in Isaiah 29:10. Yes this would apply to us today and is very obvious in many people. Why does He do this? Because many people cannot handle the truth. They are so wrapped up in traditions of men that when they hear a truth in the Word they just blow-it-off. And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. (2 Timothy 4:4). Even if they accept the truth, chances of them of sharing it with others are slim to none. God opens up truths to the Word to those who will believe them and take action on them sharing what they have received with others. But we must be able to discern truth form tradition and false teachings. To do this we must fully search the scriptures as it is written.
