What’s Fake News?

Yesterday I wrote about good news and bad news.  Today I want to talk about fake news.  **For some reason yesterday’s post didn’t publish so I have posted it today as well. 🙂

The President accuses the media of making up stories just to gain ratings – basically creating fake news. The media accuses the President of using Twitter to gain attention on items that aren’t even newsworthy and therefore creating his own fake news.

It doesn’t matter what side of the political aisle you fall on, there is fake news out there.  And I’m not talking about the fake news created by the media or the President.  I am talking about the fake news created by the devil.

He puts lies in our head that we start to believe.  He can twist and turn something good into something bad; something simple into something complicated; something imaginary into something real.  He is the father of fake news!  And we cannot let him win any battle of this kind.

John 8:44 says the devil “was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.”

Don’t believe his fake news.  Jesus brings good news.  He is the way, the truth and the life (John 14:6).  Put your trust in the Good News and you will defeat fake news every time!
