Are false memories a problem? Yes, because any memory, or thought in a memory, that is not based in truth becomes a potential problem. Truth sets us free. Lies bind us.
What creates false memories? Lies create false memories. Any lie that becomes accepted in the mind becomes a stronghold because it is against the knowledge of God.
Should we be afraid of false memories. NO! On the contrary, what we need to do is aggressively attack the lies by inviting Jesus into the thought and asking for Him to reveal His truth. The enemy wants to get us to accept lies and have those lies work in us forever. Jesus wants to set us free by having us accept His truth.
After we invite Jesus into our lives as our Lord and Saviour, we need to continually invite Him into every thought so that we can be transformed by His truth.
“We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.”
So, we don’t need to be afraid of false memories. In fact it is the opposite. We neeed to actively address the lies and false messages in memories so that we can be free. That is God’s plan for us.
In the Message in Ephesians 1, it says, “He had us in mind to be made whole and holy by his love.” God wants us to be whole, joy filled and free. How does he transform our minds? With His loving truth. Jesus is the solution for false memories.
