is not real. WHAT? It’s an alternate reality rooted in human-wisdom. But it SEEMS so real, on TV, in the news, as we go through our day. It only seems real to seculars and to Christians dominated by our human-wisdom. We do NOT see SovereignJesus behind everyone and everything. So our lives are not up to Him, but UP TO US. We feel the pressure to perform, strive for excellence. We Christians are to be pitied above all humans, for we claim the Lordship of Jesus, but do not experience the benefit of Jesus in this life, because we are so dominated by our human-wisdom and deceived by the alternate reality. Human-wisdom-dependence is a trap, a curse. Has never delivered happiness to humans, except when things go our way, which merely strengthens our addiction to human-wisdom-dependence.
The real world is only known through Scripture, where Jesus is totally sovereign over everyone and everything. Jesus-wisdom-dependence yields an other-worldly peace vastly superior to the circumstance-dependent peace of humans dominated by human-wisdom.
How can we get Jesus-wisdom-dependence? By CONFESSing our unbelief in His sovereign reign each time we are aware of it. Self-deception is our biggest problem. Just like the Pharisees.
