Stop the Self-Deception

It’s hard to see the truth, with all the lies swirling about. And, there seem to be fewer and fewer people that you can trust.

So, how do you get to the truth?

That’s a tough one, especially since your first opponent on the road to truth is yourself. You – yes you – are an incredible obstacle to seeing the truth. This is true for all of us.

The question is…

WEEKEND SHOCKCAST: Our Sin Runs Through It

So, when I see someone else stuck firmly in a normalcy bias. All that I really can do is offer a few bits of incontrovertible evidence and a prayer that God will do what He did to me – shake ’em awake.

Unfortunately, this means that God will need to knock the other person down, which is a really hard process to go through. So, you’ll need to stick around to help pick up the pieces.
