Falsutanism

(pronounced “fel [rhymes with ‘bell’]–sue–tuh [rhymes with ‘tub’]–niz–um”)

 

God can be trusted but he sometimes gives a person the delusion that they have received evil at his hand.  The purpose of this delusion is to cause them to believe that he cannot be trusted.  The purpose of this distrust belief is to get them to not trust him.  The purpose of this distrust is the living of their lives as if they had to be thoroughly self-sufficient.

 

We reject this belief but it is similar to what we do believe.

 

 

 

 

 

Christian Falsutanism

 

God can be trusted but he sometimes gives a person the delusion that they have received evil at his hand.  The purpose of this delusion is to cause them to believe that he cannot be trusted.  The purpose of this distrust belief is to get them to not trust him, except for having faith in His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, for their eternal salvation.  The purpose of the distrust is the living of their lives as if they had to be self-sufficient except for their need for eternal salvation.

 

We accept this belief.

 

 

 

 

 

Post-Falsutanism

 

God can be trusted but he sometimes gives a person the delusion that they have received evil at his hand.  The purpose of this delusion is to cause them to believe that he cannot be trusted.  The purpose of this distrust belief is to get them to not trust him.  The purpose of this distrust is the living of their lives as if they had to be thoroughly self-sufficient.

 

Also, God sometimes prevents the self-sufficient living, which results in the delusion that one might receive evil after all.  This delusion is painful and preoccupies one with seeking to end it.  It is ended by, (1), realizing that the (delusional) evil, if it occurred, would actually be good or, (2), commencing to distrust God and ceasing to care about the (delusional) evil, which would result in the pain ending.  The distrust would be unreserved compared to the distrust addressed in the preceding paragraph.  The purpose of this distrust would be to get the person to openly express it.  This open expression would make one or more other people feel like the person was in agreement with them.  These one or more other people would, therefore, look more favorably upon the person.  This would result in the person benefiting in one or more ways.  Benefit might result for one or more unknown reasons, as well.  Another possibility is that, (3), conditionally, that is, if such a thing were possible, the person flat out distrusts God and this distrust is harmless and/or has one or more benefits.  In all cases, one is just as well off or better off than if self-sufficient living had not been prevented.
