A word about the Media and propaganda: Let’s remember that they are trying to sell you something and make a big profit. The media will do whatever it takes to sell an article, magazine, channel, subscription, etc. The media in general has become a whorehouse for propaganda. Sure, some are “Christian,” but remember, their main goal is still selling their news and making a profit.
With new technological capabilities, they can twist, cut, crop, photoshop, and create just about anything they want. Just because you see a screenshot of a slide with a popular logo on it doesn’t mean the company represented by the logo actually supports or endorses what’s going on in the screenshot. Just because you hear a recording or see a video of someone saying something doesn’t mean that’s exactly how it went down or even who said it or even exactly what was said.
Don’t be tricked by the whorehouse of propaganda friends. Keep your eyes on Truth himself, and lean into Holy Spirit. Let him guide you and give you discernment.
I see a lot of “Christians” falling prey to propaganda, which by the way, comes from all sides, not just the “Left.” It comes from every news outlet and source. Social media has married itself with this propaganda harlotry and is controlling a lot of people’s thinking. The best source for truth and learning how to discern truth is the Living Word of God.
Propaganda is divisive at its core. It will tear people apart and pit them against one another. Remember who the Father of Lies is. He’s the poster boy of propaganda! Don’t unwittingly become an agent of Satan by spreading propaganda and lies. And just because it’s on the internet doesn’t make it factual. In fact, it’s probably quite the opposite.
Come out of her my people!
“And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. But he who endures to the end shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.”
Matthew 24:4-14 NKJV
“Some therefore cried one thing and some another, for the assembly was confused, and most of them did not know why they had come together.”
Acts 19:32 NKJV
