No post yesterday. Church, stuff at home and a trip to a major sports award ceremony prevented it.
So, two in one…
I was struck by both Acts and Luke here regarding the importance of news being reported correctly and research being done thoroughly.
I think we very often get short changed with the standard of news we get. Much of it is excellent, well researched, well written and in the public interest. However, on many occasions we get half truths and cherry picked, well spun facts in order to elicit a particular reaction or promote a political ideology.
This is something the Bible itself is accused of regularly. It’s pretty much impossible to prove one way or the other, but its clear that we are asked by God to look into things to do with faith, the way we live, the news we hear and every other important matter to make sure what we hear, say and believe is truthful and right.
With so much bias and so many agendas everywhere this is difficult, but we need to try.
