Believing The Lie

The Leaning Tower of Pisa reopened to tourists a few years ago after being closed for over ten years, Apparently the tower had been slowly tipping for years and was in danger of falling over so work was required to reduce its incline by several degrees.

Now this will blow your mind. I read that there are actually some people who are absolutely convinced that the tower was not then and is not now leaning at all. They insist that there is some local optical phenomenon that makes it only appear to be leaning sort of like Knott’s Berry Farm’s mystery house.

As ridiculous as that might sound, there are millions of crazies out there who believe all kinds of nutty stuff. Here are just a few other examples that you might have heard:

“Pigs are really clean animals.”
“My child would never lie to me.”
“The holocaust didn’t really happen.”
“The U.S. government deliberately blew up the World Trade Center.”
“Men have never actually walked on the moon.”
“The world is flat.”

Some people will not be convinced by truth but will rather make deliberate choices to believe that which is unreasonable, unbelievable and untrue. In effect they say, “Don’t confuse me with the facts; I’ve already made up my mind.”

Another foolish lie that millions of people believe is that there is no God. Regardless of overwhelming, objective and demonstrable evidence, they deliberately suppress the truth because they would rather believe the lie.

“God’s wrath will come upon them. They are without excuse. Although they know God, they refuse to acknowledge Him. They claim to be wise but they are fools. They willingly exchange the truth of God for a lie, and worship and serve created things rather than the Creator.” Paraphrased from Romans 1:18-25
