"But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth..." - John 16:13

Hollywood and A Loss of Reality

Over the past several years, an interesting development has taken place in the movie world. With movies like Alien, then later with Terminator, the audience sees scenes that are computer-generated. Even in the movie Forrest Gump, when Forrest is meeting with various presidents, many of these movie scenes didn’t actually occur in life.

After a while, the whole question of truth begins to be greatly blurred, and people wonder whether they can discern the difference between what has actually happened, and what is computer-generated. What is reality, and what is virtual reality? This increases cynicism in America. We can’t trust anything, and we have to doubt everything.

But there is a constant source of truth, and it’s found in a person, Jesus Christ. Ultimate truth begins with Him. This truth is revealed in the Bible. It takes faith to believe, but in a world where the truth is increasingly blurred, I urge you to begin with Jesus and His Word, and you will always know the truth.
