Perception Is Not Reality

Think about this also in terms of what happened with the murder of Jeffrey Dahmer. Dahmer died of head wounds in the prison where he was serving a 957-year term for killing 17 individuals. We look at the murder of Dahmer, the mass murderer, and our perception is that he got his due.
You may not realize that earlier that year Dahmer gave his life to Jesus Christ. He was baptized in a prison whirlpool and was meeting ever since on a weekly basis with a Wisconsin pastor by the name of Roy Radcliff.
Our perception of Dahmer is that he’s this despicable sinner. And that’s true. But it’s true only in part. That’s not the whole story. If these reports are accurate, Jeff will spend eternity in heaven with us. Perceptions are not always reality.
