At first glance this looks like an amazing architectural feat... How did they do that? When you walk in the house are the rooms level? Is this some kind of Disney land fun house? Why are the curtains hanging at such an odd angle? Why aren´t the lamps in the windows falling?
Whoever made this picture actually rotated their camera to make it appear as if it is the street that is level and straight. This can be noticed as the street signs on the right are unusually tilted, the trees are bent too, the pink building in the back is also curved, and there's a strange pressure being placed on the left side of each car, implying that gravity is pulling them to the left and downward. It's noticed especially so on the far right silver car. The house isn't tilted, the street is, and it's actually a very typical scene for anyone who has ever lived or traveled to San Francisco.
How about this one?
With current technology and a limitless imagination, people getting even better at using images and special effects to trick our minds into believing something to be true that is really just a prestidigitation (slight of hand). On the flip side, we have become so dulled to these manipulations of truth, that when we see the real deal we often doubt what we're seeing and want to know what the trick is. No matter how much you want to believe that the house is tilted, that´s not the truth. The photo has been manipulated. No matter how much you was to believe the girl is held up by an invisible cable, that´s not the truth. She is a true image.
How often is this now becoming true of our every day spiritual lives? All day long we are presented with situations, decisions, and choices. And the enemy longs to trip us up in how we respond to them. He loves to use truth and twist it just a bit, to "tilt the image" as it were, to make you believe in a false version of reality. He also loves to take the truth and make you believe it could not possibly be authentic through doubt or fear. It´s what he did with Eve in the garden (Genesis 3) and what he attempted to do with Jesus (Matthew 4). What we need is an increased level of discernment to recognize the truth. The Bible puts it this way:
Buy truth, and do not sell it,
Buy the truth and sell it not;
As you go about your day, I pray you buy truth from the Lord. I pray you seek God for discernment, judgement, instruction, and understanding. I pray that you would stand strong in recognizing truth and standing up for it, even when everyone else can only see and believe in the manipulated version.
