As Christians, I feel it is our duty to uncover the lies and shine light on the truth and live the way as taught by Christ.

I feel it dangerous to have religion be manipulated by Caesar or those with aspirations of power.  

As I feel it is dangerous for news reporting to blindly cover the lies told as news without some additional clarification. 

In this new age of tele-manipulation, sticking to the facts of covering the lies spun are not actual news coverage, but added propaganda in amplifying the lies spoken.  

There has to be added coverage of additional critical thinking consequences of the lies.

In other words connect the dots in an additional timeline of the facts and consequences or at least, an asterisk of slander under investigation or links to consequences of fraud or simple bullet points of the facts checked.

There are simply not enough defenses against lies, slander half truths and outright manipulation of the truth.  

And reporting on propaganda lies is not really reporting real news at all; news based upon truth, facts and issues facing the world today (the manipulation of the news as a tool for gain).  

I feel the news has become like the sermons railing against sins then bypassing salvation by whitewashing sins in the forgiveness of sins without first the clean up of sins in redemption; the confession and repentance of sins in atonement.

Without redemption the sinner will never receive salvation.  

Without defense against the manipulation of the truth, slander, and hate then the news is not news, but a weapon of propaganda in lies or half baked truths. 

It is time to bring the reporting of the news into the new era of defending against weaponized propaganda; as is it time to keep Caesar out of our churches and purity of spirituality and Christ's teaching in.  

The Lord should always come first as in "love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

This is the first and great commandment.

And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.

On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets".*

*Matthew 22 :37-40 (KJV)   

Why have standards fallen so low? Where is the sense of honor and duty? There is no win or salvation in the shame of dishonor and indecency....
