    2-27-2017 Believe The Truth 

    Only of God’s Bible can it be said: “The entirety of Your word is truth” (Psalm 119:160 NKJV).  Truth matters to God. “The LORD is near to all who call upon Him, To all who call upon Him in truth” (Psalm 145:18 NKJV). The only worship that brings people close to God is according to truth. That’s why God “desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth” (1 Timothy 2:4 NKJV). On the Day of Judgment, God will see to it “that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness” (2 Thessalonians 2:12 NKJV).  Without truth, we become unrighteous in our lives. People whose job is to manufacture make-believe fantasies, fake news and false science, will lead us away from the truth.  “Buy the truth, and do not sell it(Proverbs 23:23 NKJV).

    1-27-2017 Fake Resurrection News 

    “Now while they were going, behold, some of the guard came into the city and reported to the chief priests all the things that had happened. When they had assembled with the elders and consulted together, they gave a large sum of money to the soldiers, saying, ‘Tell them, “His disciples came at night and stole Him away while we slept.” And if this comes to the governor’s ears, we will appease him and make you secure.’ So they took the money and did as they were instructed; and this saying is commonly reported among the Jews until this day” (Matthew 28:11-15 NKJV). It’s amazing how “fake news” of lies and misrepresentations of truth seem to go on and on, because some people want to believe it! The Apostles “taught the people and preached in Jesus the resurrection from the dead” (Acts 4:2 NKJV). Circulate the real news!

    No fake news here 

    The internet is awash with talk of fake news. It almost seems like those who talk most about it are most guilty of it. It wouldn’t be the first time for something like that to happen.

    The whole fake-news brouhaha appears to be politically motivated. Media groups pledge to root it out. They’re the same ones who were in the bag for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. Something’s rotten in Denmark.

    But we can expect such things from the world. Corruption and dishonesty are to be found at every turn.

    In matters of the Spirit, however, we look for truth. We spurn human theologies and traditions in order to discover the right path of God. That search must turn to the Bible, where it will find its goal. (More …)

    12-20-2016 Fake News In The News 

    “Fake news” is in the news, or is it “fake news” about “fake news?” If “news” is “new information about specific and timely events,” then it may, or may not be “true.” Some refuse to face facts: an election is over; there are illegitimate babies and illegal aliens; education is not, actually; profit is not evil and Christians are not hypocrites! “Truth” is “conformity to fact or reality.” Jesus said He came into the world “that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice” (John 18:37 NKJV).  Pilate replied, “What is truth?” (John 18:38 NKJV).  Pilate represents people who cannot accept reality, so they question “truth” as if it were “fake news.” Since “no lie is of the truth” (1 John 2:21 NKJV), then there is no “fake news” about Jesus Christ in the Bible. Believe it!

    Fake-news sites targeted by larger media outlets 

    Google, Twitter, and some traditional news media outlets are targeting what they call fake-news sites in an attempt to refuse them access to, or accounts in, their services. Twitter is shutting down numerous accounts of people they accuse of conspiracy theories and alt-right positions. Facebook has for some time been accused of tweaking their algorithms to give preference to left-wing news media.

    If ever there was a time when news organizations pretended to maintain neutrality and objetivity, it has long passed.

    Christians, of all people, nurture a special place in their hearts for truth—not only biblical truth, but truth in all its aspects and facets. (More …)
