Were You Born Insane?

Abigail and Dolley readers - I'm pleased to share with you a blog from my husband, the Krusher.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Truth 101: At our natural birth we are born into sin. I found 19 scriptures to back up this premise. Perhaps, Romans 5:12 describes this inescapable state of sin best. In my view, as a result of this state of sin, we are also born into a FORM of INSANITY. Yes, I know, this premise may sound out there, but please continue reading.

God's word clearly states that when we are truly born again, we are renewed...Renewed from what? Romans 12:2 says: "Do not copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God TRANSFORM you into a NEW person by changing the way you THINK. Then you will LEARN to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect." Transform - New - Think - Learn. This scripture and others (Ex: 1 Peter 1:23 and Titus 3:5) describe this renewal, and make it clear that we must be changed, transformed, renewed from what we WERE (originally). In the simplest of terms, there are two kinds of people on planet earth, those who have been transformed by God and continue to seek Him who changed them (the few), and those who are still broken (the many).

If we are born sinners, then we are NOT whole, perfected or complete. We are missing many things, and as per God's word, we need renewing change by His spirit. How could we possibly understand absolute truth or see the world as it REALLY is, if we are born without God's spirit, which is born DAMAGED goods. Thus, our fallen world and most people of it (not saved) are perplexed, delusional, and at best focused primarily on optics (how things appear). These are forms of insanity.

This insane delusion is even more disturbing in that through ubiquitous technology (the internet) we have the ability to search for truth, history, checked facts, stats etc. via thousands of sources of verified information. Truth is more available than ever! Yet, we ignore it, or we are too lazy to search for it. Perhaps a reality TV show which is not even real (more madness and perplexity), sports (a false god in itself) or some other temporal (worldly) activity awaits our time, attention and hard earned money.

Before we are transformed by God's renewing (supernatural) power, we do NOT know that we are insane. We conform to our flesh, our warped mind, the world, and the culture (the majority) as described in Romans 12. Yet, for the most part, we think that we are normal, sane and whole, and this is reinforced (incorrectly) by the majority and most of the culture.

This world is insane: ill, delusional, perplexed and focuses on merely optics. People in and of this world do not recognize their own (true) state of being. This form of "insanity" is evident in the fallen and broken world around us, and seeps into every part of our culture including: education, entertainment, government, politics, science, commerce and yes much of the CHURCH.

Currently, the world is so crazy that some astute and inquisitive people who are NOT saved are beginning understands that something is very wrong, and that things are as they have never been in the history of planet earth.
