Impacting Cities & Communities thru Prayer
A Community of Prayer Champions, Praying Churches, Prayed-for Communities
Some of you are familiar with Michael Cernovich. Somebody is familiar with him. During just one month last year Michael had 83 million twitter views. It was Michael who reported that Hillary Clinton had Parkinson’s Disease during the recent presidential race. When confronted on 60 Minutes, Michael said he still believed this and other things he wrote even though sources he listed denied they had ever spoken to him.
The 60 Minutes reporter emphasized that the problem of fake news primarily on social media was just as rampant from liberal sources as from conservative. Of course, the worst thing about the prominence of such fake news is that many people will believe the reports simply because they support a certain point of view. The prevalence of such public deception will divide America even more.
What can Believers do about this? First, we must take Paul's warning seriously for ourselves.
"Test everything. Hold firmly to the good. Flee from all appearance of evil."
We can pray for super-political, supernatural discernment for ourselves.
There may well be times when we need to point out lies and such dubious sources of information even when they seem to agree with our politics.
Most of all we need to pray for our nation and our world in days of such evil and deception.
