Never underestimate the power of people – including Christians – to perceive and believe what they want to perceive and believe …

All evidence, logic and morality to the contrary.

Which is why God gave Scripture as His external standard of truth on those issues where He wants to hold us accountable …

To Him and each other.

And why those who reject the plenary authority of God’s written Word become stuck in existential quagmires …

From which healthy churches and disciples never seem to emerge.
