Discerning Delusions 

Under “strong delusion,” according to 2 Thessalonians 2:11, a people will “believe a lie”; in fact, according to the Living Bible, they will do so with all their hearts.”  Therefore, the fact that something is believed, even strongly believed, does not make it true.  That something is believed by many does not mean that it is right.  That it has become tradition, because it has been believed for so long, still does not make it correct.   A thing is not true because of who believes it.  Belief is neither fact of the matter nor validation of it.  Delusion could be at work, and believers in lies are often marked by a readiness to defend it violently.  Sometimes, that’s how to tell (Acts 19:26-29; James 3:14-18).
