Media Deception & Decay of Conscience
Charles Finney once declared that a decay of conscience in America would come from two primary sources–the Church (pastors and spiritual leaders) failing to fill the nation with light (truth and salvation), and the public press (media) promoting lies in their place.
That’s exactly what happening in the USA and many other nations today.
Let’s look at the deceptive power of today’s media.
The New American Pravda and How to Navigate It
Pravda means “True” or “Truth” and was a newspaper published in the Soviet Union from 1918-91 as the official news organ of the communist state. It contained pure propaganda–telling the Russian people what their totalitarian bosses wanted them to hear.
I traveled into the USSR in the mid-1970’s. At the border they confiscated Bibles, tracts, even a copy of TIME magazine I carried in my backpack. I asked why? They said bluntly: “The materials are anti-Soviet.” In other words, they denied free speech and wanted a monopoly on public information.
We now see a New American “Pravda” flowing throughout the United States–the secular media and it’s woke/cancel culture.
Here’s how I’ve learned to navigate it.
The New American Axis of Evil
It’s Halloween week and I have a scary reality to share.
In 2002, President George H.W. Bush described Iran, Iraq and North Korea as an axis of evil who pose a “grave and present danger.” He was right, and Iran and North Korea remain on the list. China should be added.
We now face a new axis of evil in America who also pose a “grave and present danger.”
Who are they? And what can we do about it?
