More Than Meets the Eye

by László Balogh


          The famous writer, Aldous Huxley, foresaw a world where we will be “seduced and manipulated through sensual gratification, cheap mass-produced goods, boundless credit, political theater and amusement. He warned of a culture diverted by mindless pleasure, and warned of a state where a population, preoccupied by trivia and gossip, no longer cared about truth or information”. (Chris Hedges)


          The well-known film, “The Matrix” presents us with a curious concept, that life is just an illusion and there is something more beyond what we can see. A concept, that we live in something we can’t explain – in the words of Morpheus: “the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth”. In the movie, Neo takes a leap of faith and decides to wake up to true reality. Is there any relevance to such ideologies, like the two mentioned above? Is there truly a need to wake up, or is everything just what it seems?  


          People being oblivious to a greater reality is nothing new. In the first century, Jesus Christ spoke of his generation in such manner: “seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand. For this people’s heart has grown dull. But to what shall I compare this generation? It is like children sitting in the marketplaces and calling to their playmates, “we played the flute for you, and you did not dance”.

There is indeed a much greater picture than this life has presented us and there is more than meets the eye. Jesus has come to reveal this entirely new dimension, and opened the door for all who want to walk through.
