Maya

Maya…

The Eastern religions and new age philosophies hold to a concept called “maya.” “Maya” means that everything is basically an illusion. But that creates a problem. Because if everything’s an illusion, how could you ever know it? Then that too would be an illusion.

Without truth, how could you ever determine an illusion. If everything is an illusion, a lie, then what choice does anyone have. That’s why Eastern religion is ultimately hopeless.

On the other hand the Bible never says that reality is an illusion. Rather it declares that Truth is real. And where there is Truth, there is also falsehood. And where there is truth and falsehood, there is a choice.

So in biblical faith, everyone has a choice. Therefore God says, “Choose life.” Every moment of your life, every moment of your day, there are choices, choices between good and evil, truth and falsehood, the spirit and the flesh, the best and everything else.

Make the right choice, choose the good, choose the truth and every choice will propel you up to the next level. For Jesus is the Truth and it’s for us to choose Him, every day, every moment.

I do not write to you because you do not know the truth, but because you do know it and because no lie comes from the truth.  1 John 2:21

You know what to do. Make the right choices today; choose to live each moment, each day choosing the good.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
