|Stare at the picture and what do you see ??|
As a boy I used to hear about the story of this man who had became enamored by stories of chivalric romances and went forth to slay dragons of ill treatment.
Arthur Schopenhauer cited Don Quixote as one of the four greatest novels ever written and that is high praise.
I haven't heard anything about this “Want-a-be knight,” for many years. Perhaps it is because of the circle I travel in. In any case if you haven't read the story then do yourself a favor and experience the edge of insanity with him.
Getting back to real life; Christians need to keep their focus on reality and not going off to fight windmills. There are those who are afflicted with the Don Quixote type delusions and lead people astray.
They will do things like leading them out to try to avoid the end of the world by hiding in caves or putting on white clothes and standing on some hill waiting for the return of Christ.
Then there are propositions not nearly as easy to see through but just as foolish. When continually exposed to stories of non-existence battles they put forth; one isn't prepared for the real struggles of life when they come along.
Paul warned against such folly in
2 Timothy 4 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.
"For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind."
"Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience."
Don't fall for some off the wall scheme someone preachers but remain steadfast and true to the obvious meaning of scripture.
There are two videos of the story of Don Quixote one is a movie and the other a bedtime version should you be interested.
