The Teaching of Disillusionment

My Utmost His Highest

"Jesus did not commit Himself to them . . . , for He knew what was in man." (John 2:24-25)

Disillusionment means having no more misconceptions, false impressions, and false judgments in life; it means being free from these deceptions. However, though no longer deceived, our experience of disillusionment may actually leave us cynical and overly critical in our judgment of others. But the disillusionment that comes from God brings us to the point where we see people as they really are, yet without any cynicism or any stinging and bitter criticism.

We are not true to one another as facts, seeing each other as we really are; we are only true to our misconceived ideas of one another. (read more) (purchase)
