This allegory is important for Christians to consider and seems to have parallels with the Christian view of reality. Christians perceive the truth about God revealed in nature to be incomplete. The non-Christian world is like those who sit bound in the cave; they look at the shadows of this world and have no idea that the shadows are not the true reality. Those distorted shadows do not tell the truth of God though they may give some ideas about God that nay or may not be true. The Christian has been set free and has seen, revealed in Jesus Christ and in the Scriptures, the reality about God and this world, but try as they might they are unable to convince most people that there is any other reality than the distorted, shadowy world they see portrayed on the wall of their cave.
