“They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion.”2 Thessalonians 2:10-11a
We live in a fallen world that subjects us to fleshly desires and temptations. Our adversary, Satan, waits like a prowling lion to devour us (1 Peter 5:8) using his main weapon, deception. When we start thinking we are self-sufficient or forget that we need God, we become subject to delusions about ourselves, about other people, and about the world. A delusion is a persistent false belief that is maintained despite sound evidence to the contrary. In other words, sin can blind us to critically important realities, leaving us confused, anxious, and despondent.
I thank the Lord that He brought me out of Mormonism and agnosticism. I had always known there was a Creator, but false teachings led me to identity crises and moral confusion about my role in the world. Since becoming His follower, I am blessed to know God through His special revelation, the Bible. I see more clearly, am calmer, and experience God’s grace daily through prayer, study, music, service, and Christian fellowship.
Will you come to Jesus today?
