Facts, Deceptions and Differing Reality

differing reality

“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”
–2Timothy 4:3-4

“Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not to his own facts.”
Daniel Patrick Moynihan

Much is made of “talking it out” with a person.

Much is made of presenting a person with “just the facts, ma’am.”

But a person who is deceived will construct their own reality, regardless of the facts.

This is a prime reason the modern deceived man gropes about complaining“That just doesn’t make any sense!”

When the stories one has been indoctrinated with fail to explain the facts in front of a person, the only thing that person can (truthfully) say is “That just doesn’t make any sense!”

Much is made of presenting a person with the facts.

But facts do not matter to a deceived person. Nothing matters to a deceived person except maintaining their deception. Some writers call this “putting one’s head in the sand.”

Because the person is deceived, he will labor long and hard to fit the facts into the deception he calls “reality.” Most modern men have rejected the truth; but modern man STILL has to make sense of his life.

That is why the false reality which the mystery of iniquity has constructed for the masses holds such an appeal for the deceived modern man: it helps him make sense of the world around him.

Until it doesn’t.

When the facts just do not fit his false reality, the deceived person is at a complete loss to explain the facts.

Helplessly, he resorts to sputtering “That just doesn’t make any sense!”

And so, most moderns will gladly submit to uttering this phrase from time-to-time rather than seek after the truth.

Which is the primary reason modern man is so enslaved, yet does not know it.

“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.”
–John 8:32,36

DOES the reader find himself uttering the phrase “That just doesn’t make any sense?”

HAS the reader ever wondered why so many everyday things do not “make sense”?

THERE is still time to change direction (repent) and place one’s trust in Almighty God and His Son, Jesus Christ.

THE GOSPEL

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:”
2 Corinthians 4:3
