Second Identity?

There’s this whole world on the internet where you can pick and choose a fantasy life to run from reality. The key word here is fantasy, though. As I watched the news report the other day, they were reporting on a “married” couple from “Second Identity”. Sadly, although the “wife” from Second Identity is single in real life, the “husband” already has a legal wife (and family)! The reporter ended with something to this effect, “They have no intentions of meeting in the real world. However, this has made her think twice about her single status.”

It’s become quite evident where this world stands on marriage as well as other Christian and family values. No one wants to face reality anymore. Everyone runs away. It’s no wonder that people in this world are so untrusting. Who out of the people you run into are leading secret lives?

I'm grateful I don't need to turn to a fantasy world to be content in my identity.

James 1:2-8
“Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That man should not think he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all he does.”
