TRUTH & DOUBT: Understanding the Enemy’s Strategy (Part 6)

Welcome to Apologetics with Carl Kerby!

Today, we’re talking about the enemy’s strategies.

News networks often portray Christian values in a negative light. Although news anchors present their reports as unbiased and objective, the truth is that an underlying worldview comes out in much of their reporting.

The American Life League observed that the secular worldview of the news media results in their tendency to advocate — rather than just report — news, stating, “[T]hese media representatives effectively see their duty as agents of social change. Since vital elements of this ‘social change’ include free abortion, homosexual rights, divorce, and pornography, and since the Christian Church opposes such practices, the natural impulse is to degrade and ridicule the media’s ‘enemy.’”

Recognizing the agenda much of the media have — and how persuasive it can be — we should be discerning and evaluate news we watch through the prism of God’s Word, the ultimate source of truth.

And what are other ways the enemy deceives? We’ll discuss them another time.
