Hollywood’s Loss of Reality

“But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth…” – John 16:13

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.
