Some People Refuse to Face Facts

In the twentieth century there’s a Flat Earth Society. Really, there is, and Samuel Shenton of London is the leader and chief spokesman for the group. He says, “The earth is really plate-shaped and motionless at the bottom of a huge pit, at the top of which the sun and moon – both about 32 miles across – are whizzing.”

After viewing pictures taken on some of the recent space shots, he said, “They proved that the earth is shaped like a plate… If you walk in a straight line you will come to the end of the earth. Beyond that is an ice barrier.”

The fact is that there is a creator. Nothing else can explain the great complexity of life. The fact is that as creator He has the right to make the rules. Man is born in a state of sin, and men love darkness rather than light. That is just a fact.

It is also a fact that God left heaven, came to earth, lived a sinless life and died on the cross for your sin and rose from the dead 3 days later. It is a fact that you can turn to God and call upon Him to save you and He will.

There are too many people in the world whose minds are closed to reality, whose prejudices rule their thinking, and it is true some people refuse to face facts.  They refuse to accept facts. Tragic it is when they close their minds to spiritual reality and the warnings in God’s Word. But refusing to accept facts does not alter them or erase them.
