The Real Fake News

There’s been a lot of talk lately about “fake news.” Well, regarding all that talk, remember that the two greatest fake news items permeating Western cultures are molecules-to-man evolution and millions of years. The claim that the universe and life arose by natural processes is a fake news story! The ministries of Answers in Genesis, the Creation Museum, and the Ark Encounter exist to help overcome this fake news and disseminate the truth of creation and the gospel message.

Have you not known?
Have you not heard?
The everlasting God, the Lord,
the Creator of the ends of the earth. (Isaiah 40:28)

Here’s a definition of fake news: the belief that watching TV newscasts or reading news reports gives a true account of what is happening in politics across the nation and the world.

Where do you find authentic news? God’s Word! The media is missing the real battle: “your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour” (1 Peter 5:8). Do you ever see most of the media reporting on the real battle raging in this nation?

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)

Publishing Misinformation

There’s also been much discussion about the media being dishonest and pushing their own agenda. I agree that much of the media is dishonest—many reporters have been publishing misinformation about Answers in Genesis, the Creation Museum, and the Ark Encounter for years. When much of secular media interview us, I believe they’ve already written their anti-Christian, agenda-driven articles before the interview. Many reporters in mainstream media don’t really report but push their agenda, including when they undermine AiG, the Ark, and the museum. Sadly, much of the media does to us what they do to politicians and political issues—spreading fake news to deliberately malign those they don’t agree with.

The left-wing, secular media is doing to President Trump what they’ve done to us for years—spreading false accusations, lies, and misinformation; being engaged in censorship; and more. Notice how the left, that’s falsely accused Christians of intolerance for years, are some of the most intolerant people on the planet. The left-wing media and protestors say they want free speech, as long as it’s their own speech and their own views—they want to censor real free speech.

It’s a culture war that’s actually a spiritual war.

Yes, there’s a civil war of ideas going on in America. It’s a culture war that’s actually a spiritual war. This war began 6,000 years ago, back in Genesis chapter 3, when Satan asked, “Did God really say?”

There’s a moral war in America. Once people abandon the absolute authority of God’s Word, then ultimately anything goes, as morality is relative. The education system has brainwashed generations against God’s Word—now people draw lines regarding morality and “truth” wherever they want to.

America is suffering the consequence of generations not being taught how to think critically but being indoctrinated in the religion of naturalism. America is on the precipice of catastrophic change because generations have been brainwashed by secularists in their anti-God religion.

Utter Confusion

As I notice people uttering expletives, have emotional outbursts, and engage in personal attacks to undermine others, I was reminded of the people in Acts 19:

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)

What’s the answer to everything happening in America right now? The gospel! It’s the only answer!
