Have you noticed that when any news breaks which puts the Left in a bad light – suddenly they are crying “Fake News!” ?
It’s diabolical! Did you know that the word “diabolical” comes from the Latin for “Devilish?” The Greek word “Diabolos” means “Slanderer.” Could that be more clear?
Let’s look at how the devil is described in the Word:
- “Not a novice, lest being puffed up with pride he fall into the same condemnation as the devil” (1 Timothy 3:6).
- “And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins, in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience” (Ephesians 2:1-2).
- “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places” (Ephesians 6:12).
- ” Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said to the woman, “Has God indeed said, ‘You shall not eat of every tree of the garden’? (Genesis 3:1). (Emphasis added
- “But I fear, lest somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ” (2 Corinthians 11:3).
- “Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil” (Ephesians 6:11).
“You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources,for he is a liar and the father of it” (John 8:44). **Words of our Lord Jesus to the Pharisees.
“For God is not the author of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints” (1 Corinthians 14:33).
And therefore by default, Satan IS the author of confusion. His very first display of his power of confusion was in the Garden of Eden. He was so cunning when he asked Eve “Has God indeed said….?” Can you just imagine the mind of Eve when she heard these words of his?
He truly deceived her as he has been deceiving the unbelieving world ever since.
Back to Leftwing Journalism
The liberal journalists cry foul whenever Conservatives cover a subject which clearly shows the Left to be in the wrong. This whole “Russian dossier” subject, which to be quite blunt, has confused so many people is a perfect example.
Brethren, I am not saying that there is not news that is inaccurate on Conservative sites. We must be so careful as we read news stories. We must vet the information as best we can. We must gather in websites which have proven to publish stories which are true and accurate. On the other hand, we must stay clear of sites which sensationalize stories or just plain lie about them.
But I will say that it is much more the style of Leftwing journalists to outright lie and therefore pass their words off as truth. I had seen first hand in my family those who take the word of CNN and other Leftists news sites as the gospel truth. If CNN said it, then it MUST be true. This is the mind set of the typical liberal. They do not think for themselves.
SNOPES is FAKE NEWS
Have you noticed that when you put in an internet search box, a new controversial story – the very first site which will appear is SNOPES. Invariably, if the story in any way puts the Left in a bad light, SNOPES will conclude that it is FALSE. Try this, and you will see that I am telling you the truth. I wrote an article on this Leftist fact check sight. I will post it here once again. Most likely, I will be placed in FB jail for a period of time. They put me in the FB slammer for two weeks last time. They are SO protective over SNOPES.
Satan Knows Just What to Do to Attempt to Shut us Down
Have you ever read C.S. Lewis’s “The Screwtape Letters?” Basically, the book is written from the perspective of a head demon who is training another demon on how to negatively affect those who belong to the Lord. It is really an intriguing book for believers. So much of it rings true in the battle for our minds.
I posted a seemingly harmless article about an actor who has quite conservative views on most subjects. A member of my family who is not a believer (and is very close to me) saw this post and began to write “FAKE NEWS” all over my FB post. He was obviously very angry.
At first I was also a bit angry at the audacity of this person to attack me as he did on my page. But then the demons began their scripted attack on my mind. I was hearing the “whispers of the devil” as I often call them. It went something like this:
- Is this important enough to have a fight with someone you love?
- Perhaps this IS Fake News……
- You should stay away from stories which will make Liberals mad
- You should just shut down as a writer……
Do you see how “Fake News” has become the verbal weapon of choice by the Left? Even my articles on George Soros have been called Fake News by liberals in my family! They see him as a do-gooder – a philanthropist with not an evil bone in his body!
Well, just in case the liberals in my family read this piece, I will say this:
I love all of you, but I must speak truth. If you are angry enough at me to cut off our relationship, then I will pray for you. I cannot change because I belong to the Lord Jesus Christ, and I made a promise to Him that when I write; I will write Truth from the Word of God. I also pray that the Lord will open your eyes to His Truth – that He is God and He died for your sins and is waiting for you to come to Him.
He loves you. I love you.
