On Wednesday, January 17, 2018, President Trump is promising to award trophies to Fake News journalists because of the lies, distortions, and erroneous reporting that is being done day after day, and year after year. Former Governor Mike Huckabee has noted that modern mainstream journalist are worse than addicts in their reporting, because some addicts recover while the fake news journalist just keep repeating their errors without any attempt at journalist recovery to be objective, fair, and balanced.
One reason why Fake News journalism can exist, is because society is largely sympathetic to fake news, and to a host of other fakers.
When former US soldier, Bradley Edward Manning (b. Dec. 17, 1987) pretends to be a female, he is a faker. Bradley is not “Chelsea.” He is who he is, biologically a male, and a traitor, by choice, of his country. Manning was convicted by court-martial in July 2013, of violations of the Espionage Act, and other offenses, including giving aid to the enemy. When the news reports on the ongoing antics of Manning, as they did on January 10, 2018, he is referred to as a “she”, and in this way the lie is not just perpetuated, it is participated in. Fake female. Fake news. Fake reality.
When the state of Washington allows a third sex option, “X”, on birth certificates, fakery is officially authorized. Jesus said that, “from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.” (Mark 10:6) On January 27, 2018, when the new rule goes into effect, the state of Washington will be openly defying the living God, along with Oregon, and California, to the nation’s eternal shame. God will not forget. A host of fakers is officially sanctioned.
When the doctors, nurses, and workers at Planned Parenthood pretend that the unborn in the womb of a mother is not a baby, but tissue to be removed, up to, and including the moment of a partial birth, they are beyond delusional, they are personally, and individually evil. Pretending to care for the health of women, those who work at Planned Parenthood are fakers. Their god is money, for they know that by selling the body parts of babies they can live a better life of luxury.
When educators seek to indoctrinate children in the theory of evolution, globalism, pacifism, climate change, and transgenderism, they are fakers. They are not imparting information as much as they are virtue posturing. Foolish parents pay hundreds of thousands of dollars for their children to be exposed to these fakers.
In every area of American culture the point is established that society is sympathetic to fakers.
This is not to say that every American is sympathetic to fakers. Conservative Christians certainly do not approve of Fake News, Fake Caregivers, Fake Educators, and Fake Self-Identification. Conservative Christians are committed, in principle, to telling the truth. Jesus said, “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” Paul instructed the Church to speak the truth in love. (Eph. 4:15)
There was a time in America when people valued honesty. A number of years ago the Douglas Aircraft company was competing with Boeing to sell Eastern Airlines its first big jets. War hero Eddie Rickenbacker, the head of Eastern Airlines, reportedly told Donald Douglas that the specifications and claims made by Douglas’s company for the DC-8 were close to Boeing’s on everything except noise suppression. Rickenbacker then gave Douglas one last chance to out-promise Boeing on this feature. After consulting with his engineers, Douglas reported that he didn’t feel he could make that promise. Rickenbacker replied, “I know you can’t, I just wanted to see if you were still honest.” (Today in the Word, Moody Bible Institute, October, 1991, p. 22.)
In order to value the truth once more, not only must there a renewed commitment to the principle of telling the truth, there must be the practical ability to recognize the truth.
Once, when a stubborn disputer seemed unconvinced, Lincoln said, “Well, let’s see how many legs has a cow?”
“Four, of course,” came the reply disgustedly.
“That’s right,” agreed Lincoln. “Now suppose you call the cow’s tail a leg; how many legs would the cow have?”
“Why, five, of course,” was the confident reply.
“Now, that’s where you’re wrong,” said Lincoln. “Calling a cow’s tail a leg doesn’t make it a leg.”
Lincoln was right. Calling a cow’s tail a leg does not make it a leg any more than calling that which is fake by some other name. Church, tell the truth.
Here is the truth. Men and women and young people are sinners by birth, and by choice. Individuals are in desperate need of a Saviour, whom God has given in the person of His Son, Jesus Christ. When a person repents of sin, including that of being a fake, a phony, a liar, God will have mercy. There is Divine forgiveness for fakers. If you are tired of living a lie, come to Christ. Enjoy the Truth that will make you free.
