Hmmm… False Hope

Can anyone give me a definition of false hope?

My recent reading of The First Phone Call from Heaven, by author Mitch Albom, where a character asks what is false about hope prompts this question. I don’t believe there is such a thing as false hope but instead the unreliability of the subject we place our expectations.

What do you think?

One thought on “Hmmm… False Hope

  1. A very good question. Most people use the word hope the same as the word wish.

    We use the phrase “false hope” without ever thinking about what it may actually mean. Is the hope itself false? or is object of the hope false? The more I hmmm about it, methinks both options are possible. (I’m glad Jesus is my Hope – and that’s no wishful thinking; He’s as certain as the hope He gives).
