THE TYRANNY OF FACTS
Factoids are tyrannical idols demanding worship. With slavish devotion many worship information and bow to facts. “Facts” are cronies with “impossible.” To prove something unreasonable nay-sayers marshal facts. Regretfully, many bow in subjection. We offer our newborn ideas and aspirations in child sacrifice. Our babies are not permitted to live. They are offered up in the inferno to facts.
We appreciate our friend Michael Danforth who stokes a better fire! He shares how we can prevail by contradicting or overriding facts! We can rebel against the gods! You can see him at https://danforthministries.com Pick up his book, 2020 and Beyond!
FACTS EXPOSED AND HUMILIATED
It is a “fact” that we don’t have wings like birds, yet we have penetrated the clouds.
It is a fact we don’t have gills like fish, but we have visited the depths.
How many times has yesterday’s science suffered humiliation? Many “facts” which seem to be innocent neighbors are being exposed for what they are: tyrants!
“For the wisdom of this world is foolishness before God. For it is written, “He is the one who catches the wise in their craftiness”1 Cor 3:19
GOD LOVES TO OVERRIDE FACTS!
We are pinned between the sea and our enemies. There is no escape! Exodus 14:10
The fact is the whole city is surrounded by an army from Aram! 2Kings 6:15
Your daughter is dead. Don’t bother the Teacher any more. Mark 5:35
“I praise You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and intelligent and have revealed them to infants.”Matthew 11:25
SUPERIOR FIRE POWER OVER FACTS
Our Father’s power transcends minute details like death and corruption. Let’s not bend the knee to facts which set themselves against the knowledge of God! He said, “Have no other gods before Me.” Let’s rally the iconoclasts! Let’s pulverize facts with Heaven’s higher realties! They are lethal ammo for our guns, giving us superior fire-power.
SEE YOU AT THE TURKEY SHOOT!
What turkeys (facts) have you been able to overcome with Heaven’s higher reality? We’d love to pass on your testimony!
