To escape the Matrix, you must resolve to believe that what God says about you is true however mush your past or present experience tells you otherwise…to transform our minds we must commit to ascribing more credibility to God than to our brains. Our Matrix-conditioned brains are the problem; they therefore cannot be the foundation of the solution. We have to grasp hold of something that has more credibility than our own brains. We need to have a source of truth that doesn’t depend on our own misprogrammed, organic computer. And this source can only be God’s word, centered on the person of Jesus Christ.
If you are to experience freedom, therefore, God’s word about your true identity in Christ must have more credibility to you than the word of parents, friends, other authorities in your life, and your own past and present experiences. But it’s up to you. You are free to believe it or not.
