The Vigilant Christian cautiously watches for the great deception of the beast, meanwhile, believing news about landing on the moon, discovering new planets and concepts of gravity, vacuum of space and black holes.
He must then bend the bible in his mind, from the first paragraph onward, to make it fit with the heliocentric cosmology he has been taught since grade school.
His creative interpretation prepares him to twist words to his comfort when he finds passages in the bible which are discomforting. A practice develops to render the bible plausible in his mind, though void of truth in his heart. An impressive mastery of deceit has caused the Vigilant Christian to miss seeing that the great deception is already in play.
