The recent false emergency alert broadcast in Hawaii on January 13, 2018 at 8:07 am, declaring that North Korea launched a nuclear missile, led many people to fear for their souls and for the souls of their loved ones. The alert lasted for an unbearable 38 minutes before the truth came out and the alarm was outed as “fake news.”
There was a sense of relief but also deep anger at being deceived by those whose jobs are of the utmost importance to the welfare of these Hawaiian citizens.
Fake news is deception. The master deceiver is Satan. The best way for Satan to deceive innumerable people at once is through the mass media. He would have to work through those in power in the media who are willing to work with him. It would be a team effort.
Then, add in an unsuspecting public who has no reason to question such “professional and well known” broadcasters and the perfect deception has been implemented.
The goal of Satan is to make the obscene normal. He has his writers downplay the horrors of abortion, the diseases of promiscuity, and the security of the family with a male father and a female mother.
Satan has his editors choose to promote sin such as covering the pro-abortion Women’s March three times more than the March for Life.
Those in broadcasting, whether in public media such as newspapers, radio, television, and especially in government alerts, must be held to the highest standard of truth.
Those in Christian broadcasting must hold to the absolute highest authority…the one true God.
Truth is critical when it comes to presenting God’s Word. Christian broadcasters absolutely must adhere to the Bible…..the ultimate “mass media of truth.”
Just think of the results if all Christian broadcasters and churches spoke the truth from the Word of God.
There would be no “homosexual affirming” churches. Creation would debunk evolution. Christians would be united through Biblical truth. “Ecumenical” would be replaced by “Biblical.” The “many roads to heaven” would be replaced by the one true route to heaven.
The secular media has been void of reporting the facts, but here at VCY America we are committed to communicating the truth. We present not only the truth of the Gospel but also accuracy in current events and cultural issues.
Broadcasters who put “Christian” in their name must be set apart from all other broadcasters. It is a category that must be held to the highest of ethics. Integrity must be the standard.
“Fake news” has no business in an organization that obeys “The Ten Commandments.” The ninth commandment says “Thou shall not bear false witness against thy neighbor.”
“False” means untrue, fabricated, incorrect, and once again, deceitful.
Not all organizations who have the adjective of Christian in their name is authentic. This is why we must learn what the Bible teaches in order to recognize truth from fiction and apply this discernment to those we trust to give us the news in broadcasting.
Christian broadcasters, such as VCY, who are faithful in airing factual information are trustworthy and honest, thus making them true to God’s Word.
John 8:32, “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
