Escapism has often been praised for its value to humanity. After all, don't
family vacations, movies, story books, and other leisure activities help remove us from the
stress of our daily lives? Doesn't escaping the stress of our daily lives add to the
quality and length of our lives? Actually no! "Escapism" in
general does very little good and very much harm. Now there is absolutely nothing
wrong with that family vacation, but the true danger lies in the paradoxical nature
of escapism. Life is truly a paradox, and if you haven't figured that out yet
then maybe you have spent way too much time escaping from reality. Quite frankly, "Escapism" destroys
more lives, and relationships than it has been praised to have improved.
The Hidden Dangers of Escapism!
Escapism robs us of psychological maturity and much wisdom. It is only in dealing
with reality that one develops the "Wisdom" that begets "Understanding," and
it is "Understanding" that truly makes us mature enough to deal on
a long term basis with "Reality." Not just easier for a little while, as
with an escape, but for a lifetime. Escapism isn't a cure for our stress or
our fears, but is a crutch! Escapism doesn't build good character or quality
self-confidence, but facing reality does. Additionally, escapism has
a very serious "Side Effect," and that is, like all crutches, it
is addictive. And at this point I am only talking about psychological addiction. Most
people can easily see the dangers of drug and alcohol induced "Escapism," but
few can see the danger in what appears to be harmless little "Self-indulgences." However, the
dangers of escapism are a reality, especially when we escape into our "SELF" . Can
you think of an example where psychological "Escapism" has destroyed lives and
relationships? What about broken marriages and family relationships? Once
a person has developed a psychological dependency on "Escapism," can alcohol
and drug induced "Escapism" be that far behind?
So why do we as a society prefer to bury our "Head in the Sand" like
an ostrich (or into an alcohol or drug induced stupor), and
ignore the realities of life? Of course, most people know what I am referring
to is the "I won't grow up" (Peter
Pan) form of ignorance and immaturity. Actually, self-induced
ignorance was most likely introduced to each of us (as
individuals and as children) by our parents, our teachers, and
our priests. Yes, church is a huge place of escape for children and adults alike.
And because it is an easy thing for children to escape from reality, seeing that they
are not that far removed from it; the deception of easy salvation doesn't escape their trusting
little psyches. Children have undeveloped brains with very little if any wisdom or
understanding. Therefore, it is not difficult at all to go from being born
immature to staying immature. So why do we as an adult society reinforce that immaturity
as a "Preferred State of Existence" into the impressionable minds of our
children? Could it be that we as a society and as a whole suffer from
the "Peter Pan Complex?" Could
Satan's attitude (Human nature) be
the silent motivation behind the high level of emphasis being placed on escaping to an "Imaginary
World," where dreams come true? Could it be that Satan (Source
of Human nature) knows that once it can get an individual to prefer to
live in a "Dream World" that its job of deception is practically
assured? Absolutely and most assuredly, Yes! Satan (Source
of Human Nature) prefers a willing victim! It
is an easy thing to introduce deceptions and demons into those who prefer to be deceived! SO, are fairy
tales dangerous? Absolutely! Would I place "Harry Potter" on
my list of recommended reading? No!
Now All You Have To Do To Get To This Mystical Place Is Click Your Heels Together, Lay Your
Finger On The Side Of Your Nose, And Repeat After Me. "Once Upon A Time In A Land Far
Far Away . . ."
2 Timothy 4:3-5
3 For the time will come (and is now here) when
they will not listen to the sound doctrine, but, having itching ears, will heap up for
themselves teachers after their own lusts;
4 and will turn away their ears from the truth,
and turn aside to fables.
5 But you (All True Believers) be
sober (Mature) in all things,
suffer hardship, do the work of an evangelist, and fulfill your ministry.
2 Peter 1:15-17
15 Yes, I will make every effort that you may always be able to remember these
things even after my departure.
16 For we (All True Believers) did not follow cunningly
devised fables, when we made known to you the power and coming
of our Lord, Messiah Yahshua, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty (received
honor & glory).
17 For he (Yahshua) received from
GOD (Yahweh) the Father honor
and glory, when the voice came to him from the Majestic Glory, "This is my beloved
Son, in whom I am well pleased."
So Here Is The Basic Fable Exposed!
Is Jesus Christ God? No! This
is a cunningly devised fable of Traditional or Mystery Christianity! And goes along
with the cunningly devised Roman catholic fable of Christ-mass and Easter.
Is Jesus the True Messiah's real name? No! This
is another part of a cunningly devised fable! The True Messiah's
name is Yahshua (Yeshua or Yahushua), which is Joshua
Is Messiah Yahshua God? No! This
is a cunningly devised fable of Greco-Roman origin!
Does Yahweh exist as a "Trinity" or as "God the
Father and God the Son?" Absolutely Not!
And This Is The Basic Reality!
Is Jesus Christ the Spiritual image of the Anti-Messiah? Yes! But
if you bury your head in the sand and prefer to believe in fables, you will never escape
your make believe world and come to the mature knowledge, wisdom, and understanding that
can lead one to worship Yahweh "In Spirit and
Is Messiah Yahshua the First Human Being to Receive The Promise of Eternal Life
as a Son of GOD ? Absolutely Not! But he
is "THE FIRST" of "The First Fruits," and "The First" to be "Appointed" to the position as (Heir)
"The Eldest Son of Yahweh."
¶ GOD, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,
2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by [his] Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, for whom, also, he made the worlds;
22 You worship that which you don't know (a fable). We (True
Worshippers) worship that which we know; for salvation
is from the Jews (not Roman catholics or Greek
23 But the hour comes, and now is, when the true worshippers will worship the Father
in spirit and truth, for the Father seeks such to be his worshippers.
24 God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth."
28 To man he said, "Behold, the fear of the LORD (Yahweh), that
is wisdom. To depart from evil is understanding."
10 The fear of Yahweh is the beginning of wisdom. All those who do his work have
a good understanding. His praise endures forever!
My son, if you will receive my words, and store up my commandments within you;
2 So as to turn your ear to wisdom, and apply your heart (inner
self or mind) to understanding;
3 Yes, if you call out for discernment, and lift up your voice for understanding;
4 If you seek her as silver, and search for her as for hidden treasures:
5 Then you will understand the fear of Yahweh (wisdom), and
find the knowledge of God.
4 ...."Let your heart retain my words.
Keep my commandments, and live.
5 Get wisdom. Get understanding. Don't forget, neither swerve from the words of my mouth.
6 Don't forsake her, and she will preserve you. Love her, and she
will keep you.
7 Wisdom is supreme. Get wisdom. Yes, though it costs all your possessions, get understanding.
8 Esteem her, and she will exalt you. She will bring you to honor, when
you embrace her.
9 She will give to your head a garland of grace. A crown of splendor will she deliver
How can anyone get "Wisdom" and "Understanding"
if they prefer to escape from reality? They cannot!
For your childrens' sake, allow them to grow up
with the reality of Yahweh in their hearts!
Teach them to worship Yahweh
in Spirit and in Truth!
Forget Santa Claus,
Little Children, beware of Evil Masquerading as Good!
