The counter-intuitiveness of reality…

Much of reality is counter-intuitive to the natural mind. Looking at what appears to be a solid wall, you would never guess that it is actually made up mainly of empty space, with trillions of tiny dots swirling around. Many other things, like the Law of Relativity, as it relates to time, are very counter-intuitive to the natural mind.

And the same is true about spiritual realities as well. Before we had read the bible, we would never have imagined the things it speaks of. That is why it is so important to allow the Word of God and the Spirit of God to transform our understanding and to define reality. Otherwise we will be regularly confused and deceived — so much so that right can seem wrong and wrong can seem right.

“There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death.” (Proverbs 16:25)

“The man without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned.” (1 Corinthians 2:14)

“…for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.” (2 Corinthians 11:14)
