More now than ever, it is important to be able to think independently. The mass media is completely biased, and hammers day and night on its propaganda themes — the big lie and constant repetition are two fundamental tools for propagandists (aka journalists). The internet is also filled with trolls, who will seek to sensationalize everything, in a bid for your clicks and eyeballs (for advertising revenue).
As Believers, we have God’s word as an everlasting bedrock of truths. From this framework, we can focus on what is important in life and see more clearly what is truly happening in the world around us. God has blessed us with opened eyes and minds, so use this blessing to create a life that is true and eternal.
