Perception is reality…


… sort of.

My three-year-old daughter is absolutely convinced that the fox from Dr. Seuss’ Green Eggs and Ham is not, in fact a fox, but a pig. She is so convinced, that when she watches the cartoon version on DVD, she yells at the television, “No, it’s a pig!

Post-modernism says that perception is reality, what’s good for you is good for you and what’s good for me is good for me, and we can hold very different beliefs yet both be right. My truth may be different from your truth, but we can both have truth, even if those truths are contradictory.

Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6 NLT)

Truth is truth. Despite one’s perception of truth, it doesn’t change. You can think the fox is a pig all you want, but the fact of the matter is, it’s a fox.

You are either right or wrong in your perception of the information. Once presented with the truth, you can either accept it and change, or reject it and continue in a false reality.

Choose change (and I’m not talking about Obama’s perception of “change”).
