Hoaxes, Delusions, and Self-Justification

So - Mantei Te'o.

Yeah.  If you don't know who that is - you can skip this one, or you can look here for the story... but basically a famous college football player's girlfriend who died never actually existed.

The big question is whether or not this was a hoax that he was involved in... and people are just sure that it couldn't be something that was simply pulled over on him.  I don't know.

What I do know is this.  We all like delusions - and the biggest delusion of all is self-justification.

Consider this - how easily will you construct so much... junk... to make yourself feel better about who you are?  How much about yourself will you ignore, how many inconsistencies will you over look to make yourself feel better?

If you think you are righteous -- that's the biggest hoax of them all.

You are a sinner.  Plain and simple.  As am I.  I'm the chief.

Thanks be to God that Christ Jesus has died and risen for sinners!

Don't look at the hoaxes of Satan and your own delusions - look at Christ Jesus who forgives sinners!
