Fake News?

The Bible tells us so. Fake news is the phrase of the day! President Trump uses it all of the time as do so many other’s who are in the news. Throughout the Bible, truth is emphasized. Most importantly, truth is number 9 in the Ten Commandments “Thou shalt not bear false witness against your neighbor”.

 I recall a day when the media outlets would report on real news, not make the news. The world is full of slander and controversy. It makes me wonder how many have read and understood Exodus 23:1.

Exodus 23:1 “You shall not spread a false report. You shall not join hands with a wicked man to be a malicious witness.
