Spiritual Blindness2 Cor. 4:1-6. Nov. 22 2020
“. ...Whose minds the gods of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ , who is the image of God, should shine on them””. 2 Corinthians 4:4
Have you ever wondered why race horses have blinders? Blinders are attached to the bridle on both sides of the horses eyes. They keep the horse focused on the path before him because they can only see what is right in front of them. To be focused is good unless you are focused on a path that leads to destruction. Do not allow yourselves to be blinded by deception.
So what causes spiritual blindness? The verse above tells us that Satan has blinded the minds of unbelievers. He deceives them He loves to create pockets of doubts in various groups of people. Untruths run rapid and is delivered by false teachers. They spread quickly. These doubts turn quickly into utter rejection of God .
So how do we protect ourselves from Satan’s schemes? We need to be grounded in the Word of God. We need to know the truth from His Word. We also must separate from groups that misrepresent the things that you know are true.
Christ will expose all of Satan’s lies when He returns to this earth. Until that time we need to guard our hearts and minds with the truth. Seek God and He will give you the wisdom to separate the truth from the lies.
