Charles Warner | The Union Times In the 21st century we are constantly bombarded with information, some of it the truth and some of it not. This 24/7 bombardment of information from a seemingly endless multiplicity of sources can and often does make it hard to tell the truth from falsehood. This has lead to the controversy over what has been called fake news with those taking sides in the controversy accusing each other of delivering fake news while claiming to be delivering the unvarnished truth themselves. The way to deal with fake news is to realize, first, that falsehoods ultimately are revealed as such even if that revelation takes time to occur and efforts are made to prevent that truth from reaching the public. Second, and even more important, we must remember that fake news is trumped by the truth, especially truth that stands the test of time and transcends the lies of the world. The greatest of such truths is the good news of Jesus Christ who triumphed over death, hell, and the grave to bring salvation to the human race. Christ is the good news, the truth that forever stands triumphant over the fake news, the untruths, the lies that have come and gone against Him and His message since He walked the earth 2,000 years ago. The triumph of that truth will continue throughout eternity and so we should place our faith in that truth, in Jesus Christ, because when we do we share in the triumph of Christ’s truth over the fake news of the world, the flesh, and, most especially, the devil, the inventor of fake news.
