As fallen humans we all have some tendency to want to create our own realities, but the left is amazingly adept in this pursuit. During this election cycle the left's propensity to create fantasy in the face of stark reality is simply amazing. I have been stunned by the ability of senior Democrat leaders, and especially the WH, to blatantly lie and mislead the public regardless of how clear the facts are against them.
The human race possesses the same set of skills when it comes to denying God, His sovereignty, who we are in His creation, and ultimately, His son. We run from truth and construct our own fantasy reality because it protects us from the the harsh truths of the scandalous Cross. The New Normal is just one example.
