Bible Blindness

Several videos have been published online depicting colorblind individuals seeing color for the first time, with the help of a pair of special glasses.

Valspar Paint partnered with scientists and ophthalmologists from a company called Enchroma to make the seemingly impossible become a reality for the colorblind. 

“Oh, look at that!” one man said as he saw the contrast in colors for the first time. “There was this whole end of the spectrum that I was just completely not aware of. This is amazing!”

Another man saw the various colors of a sunset for the first time and asked, “So this is what you guys see every day?”

One father broke down crying when his wife asked him to look at the colors of his children’s eyes.

Colorblind people can’t see all of the beauty there is to see in the world. Neither do unbelievers see all of the spiritual beauty there is to see. 

“And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God (2 Corinthians 4:3-4).

When the unbelieving look at the Bible, they merely see a book with words in it. When believers look at the Bible, they see the living word of God (Hebrews 4:12). They see the will of God (Romans 12:2). They see the love of God (1 John 4:9).

When viewed through a worldly lens, Jesus is seen as a mere man. A believer sees a Savior (Luke 2:11).
