The greatest obstacle to learning the truth is to believe you already know it. There are many who are so indoctrinated by their religion that they refuse to abide in God’s Word to know the truth that will set them free. By stubbornly refusing to look to the only reliable source for truth, they are saying they are resolved to ignore God’s justice, to defy His sovereignty, to refuse His mercy, and to endure His wrath. They refuse to follow Christ, bow to His authority, believe on His Name or receive salvation on His terms. Tragically, they do not realize they are held captive by religious deception. They say their mind is made up, they will be their own master, and they are happy with the choices they have made. This is what described me until the sovereign grace of God drew me to Himself, opened my eyes, granted me repentance and the ability to believe His Word!
