In an age of widespread disinformation and polarized opinions, how can honest, God-fearing people ever expect to see a positive transformation in society?
There’s a strong correlation between community transformation and the humble informed action of godly people in response to truth. The observation of Isaiah’s generation in Israel parallels what we see today, but we have one big difference. He said:
“Our courts oppose the righteous, and justice is nowhere to be found. Truth stumbles in the streets, and honesty has been outlawed. Yes, truth is gone, and anyone who renounces evil is attacked. The LORD looked and was displeased to find there was no justice. He was amazed to see that no one intervened to help the oppressed. So, he himself stepped in to save them with his strong arm, and his justice sustained him.”
If you think about it, there’s a particularly good reason why one of the most oft-repeated warnings of the Bible and Jesus Himself, is the familiar phrase, “do not be deceived.” Anyone who reads the Bible is familiar with the fact that the devil’s most glaring identity is “The Deceiver” (Rev 12:9), And his chief strategy to “steal, kill and destroy” (John 10:10) is the clever art of deception. It has now become widely recognized that those who routinely get their knowledge and understanding from main stream media, and those who listen to all the corruption that is there, are inevitably more likely to fall for their deception. And almost every statement that is made on those public platforms are laced with dishonest, misleading and downright destructive intentions. If anything has awakened millions of our peers to the reality of evil in our world, it is the blatant distortion of reality presented in today’s anti-Christ portals of news and entertainment.
