Don’t Confuse Me with the Facts

Our Words for the Week come from Dick Innes, founder and international director of ACTS International,

I‘m sure you are aware of the old saying that says, “Don’t confuse me with the facts. My mind is made up.” Also, “A man convinced against his will is of the same opinion still.”

Just watch interviews on TV: People see what they want to see; hear what they want to hear; expose themselves only to messages they want to hear; and they will distort any message to make it match their perception of reality, or to try and make it say what they want it to say. It’s called selective hearing, selective observation, selective perception, and selective distortion.

THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: Your struggle is not your identity.
