God’s Word Versus The Media

President Trump is not lying when he says that the media is fake.

No matter what your political stance is, please acknowledge the fact that the mainstream media has morphed into an industry for selling the latest and greatest tall tales instead of trustworthy news stories. What used to be considered reputable sources for information now leave their audiences questioning their every word. In times such as this, who are we to believe? Who can we trust to tell us the truth?

“Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.

For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.”
-2 Peter 1:20-21

Well, God gave us a huge book to go by. In fact, if you really dive deep into its contents, the Bible speaks of controversial topics going on in today’s society and how we should go about dealing with them. The Bible tells us how nations can prosper, and how they can fail. The Bible tells us that Satan will attempt to deceive the world with false information, and that we should hold fast to God’s Word when lies run rampant. You know, that kinda sounds like the world we’re living in today.

The Bible wasn’t conjured up by man, so it’s not just a book with 66 distinct mini-books full of interpretations from random guys. Yes, the Bible was penned by men, but God instructed them in what to write. I’m entirely convinced that if the Bible was solely written from the minds of men, if Christianity and God were made up aspects of religion, that they would’ve been completely banned a long time ago. I mean, look how the mainstream media is portraying Christians today. If it’s just a made up religion, how is it still going strong? How are Christians experiencing miracles every single day against adversity? Because God’s got our backs, that’s why.

Sorry, I went off on a tangent XD .

“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:”
-2 Timothy 3:16

Okay, so we’ve established that the Bible comes from God. God created this world a long, long time ago. The first humans were Adam and Eve, who disobeyed God and brought sin into the world. Therefore, God sent His Word to guide us through this wicked world, and to lead us to His one and only Son, Jesus Christ. According to this verse, God’s Word–The Holy Bible–is designed to be a source of news for us. The Bible’s purpose is to instruct us with its infallible doctrine, to correct us when we’re wrong, and to lead us to righteousness. That is literally the purpose of it, and I don’t know about y’all, but it has never once led me wrong or lied to me. Now, consider your local news stations, the national news stations, Twitter and Facebook feeds, etc. I could probably name at least a dozen lies I’ve seen within the last hour. The mainstream media no longer cares about truth or accuracy, nor do they care how many lives they harm for the sake of making a profit.

You know what God gave up to reveal the truth to us? He gave us His Son. His Son died to save us from our sins, and yet people are willing to believe a national news source instead of the Bible. Just think about that.

Goodnight everyone, and God bless!
