Make Believe

Children love to pretend. Much of this is rehearsal for things they will do as adults. When children grow up, for the most part, they give up pretending, or if they do pretend, they don’t deceive themselves or others about what they are doing. However, some children grow up to be Christians. They never stop pretending, fuelled by wishful thinking. They sink into the habit of reflexively lying to themselves and others. They pretend they are not pretending.
