I hate to do it, but I feel I must.
I have to steal a saying in our society that is very prevalent in the news,heck it is the news. What is worse, is that I must mix it with religion.
Yes, IS there FAKE NEWS IN CHURCH?
Yes I said it.
I want to come at this from two angles, there should’t be one angle,let alone two, which is sad.
The first one is ‘Do Pastors or clergy make up things,or points in their sermons to prove a point? What!? How could this be? Why, would a clergy do this? About what would he use ‘fake news’ to make a point?
Let’s go to the second angle, How would the ‘church’ know? This is so hard to tell which one of these is the worst, but I lean towards the second. (Maybe this is the reason ‘we’, the ‘church’ are where we are at now)
Does anyone every study the bible, let alone read it anymore? My observations have led me down the path that says reading is down, and studying is way down. Now, you should notice that if you correct the second, it will fix the first in time.
God’s people must know him in an intimate way as to not see when something is said or done that is not of God. That is our DNA to be of God and his word.
God’s people for to long have just taking their teaspoon of the ‘message’ on sunday morning and assumed it would get them bye, let alone they thought it might be wrong. God is holding us accountable to know his word and what it means. I challenge you today to know God’s word and hold it close to your heart to know that it is good, and not Fake News.
