Why Do Some People Refuse to Believe the Truth?
The answer is simple...
Ever wonder why supposedly smart people hate the truth and choose to believe lies instead? They support vaccine and mask mandates; they’re all good with homosexuality, abortion, gay marriage, transgenderism, pedophilia, and Critical Race Theory. Worse yet, many of these people occupy leadership positions in government, business, and even in some churches.
How can they be so blind?
The answer is simple... when one knows where to look for it…
One of my favorite Substack writers is Amy Travis, who pensSome excerpts from one of her recent posts provide an answer to that very question.
“You don’t need to be an alarmist to know that the world, as we know it, is in deep trouble. Growing up in the 70s and 80s, I could never imagine we would be witnessing the chaos that the world is currently experiencing.
This spiritual darkness is not only obvious but also predictable. Thousands of years ago, the Bible warned that evil will increase in the last days. But why? How does this happen, and how do we know this isn’t just random? Can we be sure that our current condition is proof that the end of the world is near?
...Something appears to have shifted in recent days. Convincing someone that eating Fruity Pebbles every morning is good for them is one thing. What we’ve witnessed lately, however, is something very different...”
The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie, and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason, God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness. 2 (Thessalonians 2:9-12)
Travis goes on to write...
“Let’s break down the passage above and look at four ways that our current situation is a sign of Jesus’ soon return:
Evil is Increasing
We’re living in an age characterized by evil. Just look around. Last week, 210 Democrats voted against the Born Alive Act—legislation that requires physicians to care for infants who are born alive following an attempted abortion.
Even Newsweek, a publication known for its left-of-center views, condemned their actions, saying,
“The overwhelming majority of House Democrats, many of whom support abortion on demand, voted against it, even though abortion itself wasn’t at issue. Their extreme reaction to the bill showcased just how out of step they still are with the majority of Americans’ views on protecting the most vulnerable members of society.”
In what world would it be okay to allow a sick baby to die alone without receiving care? Just imagine if members of Congress tried to pass the same bill but substituted the word ‘baby’ with ‘puppy’. They would be run out of town — and rightly so.
People are Easily Deceived Because They Refuse to Love the Truth
Deception has always been a thing. Since the fall of man, Satan has been lying to humanity. The devil is the original gas-lighter. And, unfortunately, history has shown that it’s easier to fool someone than to convince them that they have been fooled.
When you look at the storylines above, you can see how easy it is for us to be deceived. Every lie sounds good at face value but rejects a basic element of truth. For example, regardless of how “pretty” they look, these men are sexual predators who prey on children and should not have unfettered access to our school system.
Infants are not born the wrong sex. This fallacy denies the simple truth that God creates men and women in His image. Performing dangerous operations meant to sterilize healthy children is just as evil as withholding care from dying babies.
While God created human beings with a diversity of eye color, skin color, height, etc. He also declared at the beginning of human history that He created us male or female. When we deny basic biology, we are deceived.
God is Judging Those Who Have Rejected Him.
When God instructs us to avoid something such as sexual sin, what He’s really saying is, “Don’t do it. This will hurt you.” As the Creator of the Universe, God designed the human body, mind, and spirit to function in a certain way. When we follow the instructions in the user guide, we can make the most of what we’ve been given as human beings. When we don’t, we forfeit many of the benefits, such as peace, happiness, and fulfilling relationships.
His judgment often takes the form of natural consequences to our actions. For example, when we neglect our marriage, the relationship with our spouse will suffer. When we’re verbally abusive toward our children, our kids will rebel and act out. When we engage in sexual perversion, we open ourselves to pain, disease, and heartbreak.
This Age of “Strong Delusions” is Paving the Way for the Antichrist
As long as there are people who love God and still seek His truth, the devil will not be able to unleash the hell on earth he has planned for humanity. This is why the Bible says that the ‘Man of Lawlessness’ can’t be revealed until the true believers are taken out of the way. (This is referred to as the Rapture or the “catching away” of the Church.)
We know that the end of the world is near when God sends ‘powerful delusions’ to those who have rejected Him because it signifies the end of the Age of Grace. No one will be able to survive what comes next.”
If one reads all of chapter two of 2 Thessalonians, it all makes sense. In the end times, the rebellion against God, the falling away, the man of lawlessness, and the wickedness deceive the masses.
And now you know why they can’t see the truth…

i find it painfully difficult to accept that the good God sends a powerful delusion ... why ? well to my way of thinking ... a delusion is a type of lie... i cant accept that the good God would use lies ...please no offence intended ... dear God of goodness and truth please in lighten my darkness...
The globalist plan has been in the works since Hitler fled to South America and Nazis came to the US with Operation Paperclip. The infiltration was nearly complete and the deception working until a handful of military, intelligence operatives, and patriots decided to interrupt and stop the process with President Trump as the public face of saving our country and the West for that matter with freedoms loving people around d the world getting involved over the last decade. When all the scoundrels aligned behind the Clinton Crime Syndicate (Hillary is the whore of Babylon), they never thought she could lose due to the rigging of elections. Now, these scoundrels are desperately attempting to carry out their agenda by all means available in an utter state of chaos. Ite incumbent upon us to use the full weight of all conscious and sane Beings to end this nonsense before all hell breaks loose.
