GUEST: ROBERT KNIGHT, author and columnist, Washington Times

Satan and unredeemed humanity have always been at war with the truth. This is because God is the source of truth, and thus to try to escape accountability to God and persuade others to do the same means one must believe and propagate lies.

This includes lies about God’s character and nature, His laws and justice, His offer of salvation through Christ, and really any given issue that will lead someone in the wrong direction. Lies about sexuality (“homosexuality is good”), gender (“you can choose your gender”), race (“your identity is your skin color”), climate (“man will destroy the world”), COVID (“masks and the vaccine will save us”), etc., etc.

We are living in a lie-dominant, anti-truth culture. Christians don’t know where to get news on current events because mainstream and social media constantly pump out lies in pursuit of their agenda to lead people away from God and to their socialist government utopian dream.

Robert Knight, columnist for the Washington Times, joins us this weekend on The Christian Worldview to discuss this anti-truth worldview in light his most recent column, “The Dangers of Doublethink”, where the most influential institutions in our society constantly lie about everything.

How should a Christian think and live in this anti-truth culture? Join us this weekend to find out!

How to think and live in an anti-truth, culture that is a topic will discuss today right here on the Christian worldview radio program with the mission is to sharpen the biblical worldview of Christians and to share the good news of Jesus Christ. I'm David with the host in our website is the Christian now Satan and unredeemed humanity have always been at war with the truth. This is because God is the source of truth, and thus to try to escape accountability to God, which is futile. I might add, and persuade others to do the same. What that means you must believe and propagate lies. Get away from the truth. Now this includes lies about God's character or nature, his laws and his justice. His offer of salvation through his son Jesus Christ and really any given issue that will lead someone the wrong direction. So your lies about sexuality. Homosexuality is good were told, or gender.

You can choose your gender, race, your identity is your skin color or climate man's going to destroy the world instead of God. Her coven mask in the vaccine will save us, etc. etc. etc. we are living in a lie dominant anti-truth, culture, Christians don't know where to get news on current events. Because mainstream media and social media constantly pump out lies in pursuit of their agenda to lead people away from God and toward their socialist governments utopian dream, Robert Knight, columnist for the Washington times joins us today on the Christian worldview to discuss this anti-truth worldview. In light of his most recent column titled the dangers of doublethink where the most influential institutions in our society constantly lie about everything. So how should a Christian think and live in this anti-truth culture were going to get that question today before we get to Robert Knight, just a little set up for this topic. When we come home from church on Sundays.

I know I've mentioned this in the past that we try to hear some of Grace Community Church's service out in Southern California were John MacArthur is the pastor and interestingly enough, this past Sunday. He's been doing a series on raising children at the beginning of his message.

He described the kind of culture in which Christians have to raise children. Here's what he said about this anti-truth, culture think we are all savvy enough in the culture in which we find ourselves today to know that there is a war on children. It is an educational war on children. It is a psychological war on children.

It is a political war on children, but more than that.

It is a spiritual war on children and more than that. It is a satanic war on children, we all wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers the rulers of the darkness of this world, and spiritual wickedness in the heavenly is a spiritual war on children.

It takes many forms. Right now it is dominated by a mentality that I would choose to call the anti-truth, culture, there was a time when we define human life.

Post-Enlightenment post-Reformation as modern and that meant we were searching for truth and that was followed by postmodern which meant we were no longer searching for truth decided there was no absolute truth, you could have your own truth. Find your own truth. We've gone through that are not the other side into a culture that is bent on lies and anti-truth is an all-out assault on the very concept of truth is the willful ignorance of reality and children are the greatest of this because the perpetrators know where they have to go shave minds, they get them as early as they can. This is exactly the case. This is why the educational system is so humanistic and so guileless they know what my Christians know that you raise up a child in the way that he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it. That works both ways for righteousness or for sinfulness and this is why those on the left want earlier and earlier education they want your kids in daycare and when there one or two years old and in early education. By the time there three or four. They want complete control of their minds at the earliest possible date and this is what you have no choice where your tax dollars go out to support the educational system in America may be one thing if your tax dollars to go follow your child to where you want to send them to school, but that's not allowed in this country are tax dollars go to the government educational system, no matter what and if you want to go elsewhere with you to pay for it just goes to show you how intense they are on shaping your child's mind towards unrighteousness, but continue with a John MacArthur said they get them as early as they can, which then raises the stakes for parents because we are no longer aided by the educational system were no longer aided by the social structures around us were no longer aided by politics were certainly not aided by big tech where not aided by entertainment media we have in a real sense no help. We are in full blown anti-truth satanic paganism and again that raises the stakes for parenting your children, it most certainly does raise the stakes that the difficulty level.

There's no aid outside a Christian home that's going to be shepherding your children in a righteous direction and let me add one more area that's not really helping as much as they should. And that's the. The church itself. You would think there would be a cooperation there but just too many studies have shown that kids who grow up in evangelical churches don't catch a biblical worldview that THE gospel. They don't understand it and they walk away. That really is probably the saddest story of all that kid should be getting it primarily at home, but it should be reinforced in the church and it's not being reinforced enough in the church. So with that in some context on this anti-truth, culture that we are living in. Let's get to the interview with Robert Knight who is a an author and a columnist for the Washington times. Robert, thank you for coming on the Christian worldview. Today I want to start out by reading from your most recent column which you titled the dangers of doublethink. You start out by saying this, where clearly living in a time of doublethink. That's when someone believes two mutually contradictory beliefs. The term came from George Orwell's novel 1984 in which the government ruling party issued absurd dictums such as war is peace. Freedom is slavery and ignorance is strength.

The psychological name for this you write is cognitive dissonance. One form of it is accepting as reality, something that clearly conflicts with reason. Sensory perception and common sense and I can add a parenthetical or what the word of God clearly declares The progressive ruling elites at the helm of our culture are exercising their clout to put us all in a constant state of doublethink, complete with a cancel culture to enforce their bizarre views as usual, the media are in the forefront of this cultural sabotage. What are some of the most obvious examples of this that come to mind when you think about this this this idea of doublethink or this anti-truth culture Robert.

I think the changes we've seen in language used in academia and by the media are the most striking and that one reason I wrote the column was.

I saw an Associated Press article about Gov. Bill Lee in Tennessee signing a bill to protect kids from being subjected anti-puberty hormone treatments which sets them out later for sex change operations of the governor rightly believes that you shouldn't do this to children, he should let nature take its course and let them grow up.

But in the article the this was described as doctors being barred from quote providing gender confirming hormone treatment to prepubescent minors think that term gender confirming it's just the opposite of what it means if you're born a boy and you get these drugs they hold up your trajectory into becoming a man and instead articulate a suspended state until you get to be of age in which case they can have you castrated the same with a young woman young girl. She gets the hormone treatment and then they set her up for double mastectomy's amendment.

To me this is beyond child abuse. This is criminal doctors who do this should be arrested and convicted and jailed and yet our media are applauding it and they are defining it opposite of what it really means. Truly an anti-truth worldview. If you've ever seen it.

You say, since sex specific pronouns are considered offensive. The Washington Post dutifully began its doublethink peace this way pop singer Demi Lovato said, quote they identify as non-binary and will change their their pronouns to say in them throughout the article. Miss Lovato is referred to as they or their so this is the Washington Post. One of the most esteemed newspapers in this country going along with us. This idea that a person can be a plural instead of an individual. Robert gathered their defined rules of grammar and the editors should be up in arms over this but they're not because they are told if they are, they probably will be employed at the Washington Post much longer. That's how sick the leftist ideology has penetrated the nation's newsrooms. But here's another example they talk about people being assigned sex at birth and on the only person doing the assigning is God when you're born a boy or a girl that set and yet they make it a matter of a doctor or parent assigning the sex of the child, which is absurd and they go along with this. What's worse is that the Washington Post has a good section called goods post and they have a shorter version of this article by Demi Lovato and they said she's proud to identify as non-binary gender in the referred to her as they throughout the article.

What a great way to confuse kids you know. Can you imagine being a seven-year-old whose well-meaning parents are exposing you to the kids post section 90 reading this you thinking or maybe I'm not a boy after all. Maybe about a girl I'd better give this more thought and maybe that is the point of this all is to capture the minds and the hearts of children so you you change the next generation so there truly truly confused talking today with Robert Knight and author and columnist for the Washington times.

There is website.

Our topic today is how to think and live in an anti-truth culture Robert which lead us into the next question that our society has gone from a postmodern worldview where truth isn't you, we don't have the ability to know truth it's it's relative to the individual. We just can't know it is subjectively gone from that worldview to I think. More recently, within the last maybe year or two to what were calling now an anti-truth.

The worldview now is directly against truth which is all out lies so power what do you think change our society from going from postmodernism to anti-truth.

This began decades ago. David with the Frankfurt school which was a group of Marxists who came over fleeing the Nazis and they put into place Marxist critical theories. Karl Marx was the father of communism, and he was a big fan of of criticizing everything that existed and then tearing it all down and reforming society to reflect a communist viewpoint of shared ownership. Ownership abolishing private property, abolishing the nuclear family abolishing marriage people not realize how radical Marx was and how radical his followers today are the critical theory was applied to religion are the higher criticism. It was called. These people took an ax to the Bible and two doctrines of that were common in America right through the 20th century and then on into every subject under the sun. Herbert Mark Koza who was a Marxist brought this to the campus. He was well read on campus. I had to read a and I was in college and grad school and she criticized capitalism. They criticize religion. He said that people need to focus on themselves and he was a proponent of the sexual revolution as were Marx and Engels is a real story there David about the angles of being a kind of a cat himself and Marx also being awful to their families angles openly proclaim free love and a lot of the early socialist philosophers went along with this because they thought okay this makes sense if we can try people away from things like marriage and family, we can split society and to where there are no intervening institutions to protect the individual from the state. This will leave the individual helpless before state power and then we can usher in socialism and finally communism.

Today we say this at work in black lives matter, which was founded by two lesbian Marxists and one other Marxist woman and the and chief of movement, they are at war with truth.

Their war with the family or with capitalism in America, and a lot of people because of the George Floyd deaths a year ago bought into the black lives matter movement, not realizing its Marxist origins and how dangerous it really is. But here's here's one more element.

David now is the domain generation in the 1960s.

Everything was challenged the left was fortified by the writings of Herbert Marcos and Seo.Adorno and others who said you really have to concentrate on yourselves.

So when you turn inward you eventually come to the point where you think your truth is the only truth that matters. And you still hear that phrase today. I have my truth you have your truth.

It's nonsense. It's entirely subjective. It's an evidence of a religion of relativism that replaces Christianity which says you can discover truth by giving your life to Jesus Christ and allowing the Holy Spirit to guide you in discovering and now reaping the moral today the Christian worldview returns in just a moment. Courtney was 17 weeks pregnant when she and her husband Greg learned that their son Sheppard had a heart condition that would require multiple surgeries uncertain about his future Samaritan ministries connected them with another Samaritan members who began to pray and share the financial needs of the pregnancy and the medical care Shepherd of answering any differently and done any better. The confidence I found this is not something that you need to be concerned and the health of your family to have will walk with you every step safely.

Now back to today's program with host David Wheaton, Robert, do you think that the people who spread and proclaim these outright lies this anti-truth. You think they actually believe them like the Washington Post when they write about someone's a plural gender or critical race theory in the different things going on that you can you can change your sex from what you were born with immediate do they really believe these things are or is the agenda. Is there an agenda like a like a political agenda that they did have to go with it to get where they want to go but what I worked for the Los Angeles times the newsroom was the most intellectually stultifying place I've ever worked because everybody was expected be very liberal and if anybody uttered something out of step with whatever the liberal viewpoint was always looking over their shoulder to make sure nobody heard that sort of thing. I think some of these people buy into these lies but most people are just fearful of being out of step with the left-wing agenda that so powerful. You mentioned the Washington Post I have in front of a clear example of where they go with replacing truth with lies on their Wednesday opinion column on May 26, whether columnist Dana Milbank who is an out and out Marxist of this headline the GOP is fixation on the race is on full display. The GOP fixating on race not which the Democratic Party they been the ones who were fixated on race. There, behind black lives matter. They run most American cities and have now are very aggressive, antiwhite, racial agenda, but to show you how bold the Democrats are in line sale May 27 James Carville who was Clinton's former campaign advisor very bright guy who is very strategic. There's a big headline that says Democrats are the anti-crime party and so he blames Pres. Trump for the huge upsurge in crime and all the democratically run cities since the George Floyd killing not just the riots but the shootings and murders of black on black that are just turning most cities into battle zones and somehow he blames Trump on the Democrats to blame Trump for the disaster at the border saying it's all Trump's fault.

Even though Pres. Trump got the border under control was building a wall.

Pres. Biden is on done all that people are streaming over the border in the hundreds of thousands. It's a disaster unfolding and are blaming Trump for at some point I think the average American. Even people who voted Democrat are going to say you know I'm through with allies. These people can't be trusted there telling the opposite of what my own eyes and ears tell me is true and that's our help David that they they have become so blatant. The devil has overplayed his hand as usual, and that people are waking up and resisting our parents are fighting back against the doublethink being shoved down their kids throats in various school systems again. Robert night with us today here on the Christian worldview talking about how to think and live in this way, what is turned into an anti-truth. Culture does blatant lies being told us.

I think my little theory for this is a goes right back to the garden when Satan tempted Eve just told her an outright lie. You surely will not die for eating the fruit just completely contradicted God's word. I think there's something inside of us that you tell a big lie not just a little lie he told big lies over and over whether it's about climate change, or about race but it's about someone sex whether it's about sexuality. Whether it's about you name you name the issue and as you're saying is just the opposite. It is told of what reality is, that's what truth is truth is actually the way things really are, and so according what's the standard for that. Of course, it's always God and his word are the standard as the baseline standard for what we know is to be truthful. You tell these big lies and I think just those who tell them know that people are going to believe them because there's something in us that just can't see someone talking to us with a straight face on television or read something in the newspaper and disable that this person can't be just completely outright, telling the opposite of the truth. Can they may think you're just something trusting in us that can't fathom that that could be the case that some will just be telling an outright lot, but I think that is the case now you mention Robert about critical race theory and how much of a lie that is that America's founded on racism in 1619 were terrible country is systemically racist whiteness is that is the enemy in this country. Everything's about race you talk with critical race theory worldview about how much of a lie that is now, you mentioned George Floyd that happened right here in Minneapolis one year ago Memorial Day weekend in 2020. What are some of your thoughts on how George Floyd's death. In the aftermath the riots. The trial ever anything you want to, not to do with it. How that has impacted the country in race relations. I did think race relations could get much worse after the Barack Obama presidency where he really exaggerated and increased antipathy between the races.

He was supposed to bring us all together. A lot of people voted for Barack Obama thinking will look whenever first black president and that will show the world and us that were now at a post-racial society that didn't happen. Obama and his minions of put into effect. Lots of race conscious programs and the Biden administration is that on steroids. They put people in the place that are pursuing a radical racist ideology. Critical race theory is just one aspect of it, but it's a big one on the other is honoring groups like black lives matter, the State Department issued a murmur memorandum saying that the black lives matter flag could fly on flagpoles that are foreign embassies think about that for a minute black lives matter hates America hates the nuclear family hates capitalism is dedicated to destroying America as we know it and replacing it with a communist system and the Biden administration is saying that we have to put that out front and center as a symbol of America in foreign countries but what country puts a flag that asserts that it's it's evil on a flagpole in front of their embassy. This is just so nuts's astounding release will see this all over the place under Biden were told of transgender troops won't make any difference won't upset the. The cohesion of troops in barracks to have your Sgt. or your captain suddenly show up and drag telling us to accept these as normal and even positive about what it is is an unraveling of the moral and social order, and I think think the endgame is to create such division create racial war in this country keep us divided into identity groups and then say that we need a bigger and more powerful government to pick up all the pieces that is I think exactly the endgame because God is pushed out so then you need a new God with a little gene that the new guy with little G starts with government and that they want to go that's that's human beings greatest God is the unregenerate human beings greatest goddess is government Robert night with us today here on the Christian worldview. He is an author. He's a columnist for the Washington times you can find out more and connect with his columns get them for free every week by going to his website Robert H. I want to touch on one more example of this anti-truth culture.

We are now living in the aspects of cope with the responses to it. Whether it's the masks word is shown to have very very little efficacy against the spread of co-video may be hidden unless it was an and 95 master walking around with a bandanna over your face really does basically nothing to stop the spread of cope with these these mass lockdowns and now the vaccine this this non-FDA approved vaccine that is being it's like a propaganda war that this is our Savior to get this vaccine.

None of the side effects or deaths are there swept under the rug. Talk about Robert how the aspects of co-vid are just falling in very neatly to this anti-truth messaging.

Apart from climate science. I suppose the most censored material on the Internet is probably about coded big tech has gone and establish rules by which, if you question anything the World Health Organization says over the Centers for Disease Control are your stuff can be censored or they could apply a warning on it. The narrative keeps changing on COBIT was known for many months that the masks were particularly effective. But if you posted an article talking about how the coded molecules are exponentially smaller than the smallest holes in the masks you would have your information barred information about Iver Becton, a very effective drug.

It's been around for years and hydroxychloroquine on has been suppressed. They should of been out there and they could've saved probably thousands of lives of people who were told that no other is no cure until you get the vaccine.

And that's just not it the case. Dr. felt she has lost all credibility. First, he said don't wear masks that are not effective. Then he said oh whoops, everybody has to wear a mask. Then later he came out so you really are where to make it more effective which tells you the first mask never was effective and one of the biggest lies told is that somehow the covert virus came out of a wet market in Wuhan. It didn't come from the biological warfare lab where the virus was being enhanced with game, function, research, some of which the US participated in several years ago. It's documented and Dr. felt she was up to his ears and that I tell you what David, I'm surprised by demonstration, is now pursuing the idea that he had did leak from the Wuhan lab.

After all, the Chinese of light about it. No bats were even sold in that wet market.

They first blamed it spreading from bats to humans and the nearest I think wet market selling bats was a thousand miles away what you couldn't get access to this kind of information that would be shut down by big tech people have to go to alternative sources and I guess we can talk about that later about how you find truth in a world in which the media and big tech are lying to us every day. He I do want to get to have that question for you for coming up. I just can't resist one more example of this anti-truth.

Narrative may seem like it's in all the big issues from COBIT as you just talked about to to gender to sexuality to racism to climate all these things. It's like you're told the exact opposite of the reality of the situation, but from a previous column that you wrote about White House Chief of Staff Ron MacLean describes Joe Biden's sweeping agenda as quote rebuilding the backbone of the country, rebuilding the soul of the country in his speech Wednesday to Congress. He said we must come together to heal the soul of this nation. He said this after naming quote the most lethal terrorist threat to the homeland today is wait for this whites the premises terrorism and the minutes later you right after throwing a bone to cops saying that most were honorable president Biden accused the justice system of harboring quote systemic racism. He later described the January 6 capital ride as quote the worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War unquote and of course this was a unarmed melee riot whatever you want is a incursion into the capital. They just one person was shot and that was a protester and no one else died there as a result of this riot, but this is being again turn into this anti-truth declaration that this was the absolutely not. We almost lost our Republic on January 6 is almost over and taken we are. We're just you know a sliver away from sliding into the abyss. Just talk briefly about this and before we got a few other things there. There was a big liar in January and and on that somehow this was unquote armed insurrection.

In fact, Nancy Pelosi use that term repeatedly probably still does, it was nothing of the sort. There were no guns found that the only person as you say died was Ashley Babbitt who is the trump supporter unarmed was try to break go through broken window I guess and was shot by someone on the other side. Of course the main yard the slightest bit interested in who that person was who shot her. They think it's a capital police officer, but they don't insist that he be identified or she, unlike any shooting that involves a black victim is something that the only shootings that the media care about our our black victim shot by police and their oversized coverage of the has fooled so many people into thinking that hundreds of people here shot unarmed by police force. The figures and let less than 100 only 13 black victims were shot by police who were unarmed in 2019. On the other hand we had select 6000 deaths by shooting virtually all of them black on black crime in major cities like Chicago and Baltimore and Washington DC the media keep ignoring that death toll that happens every weekend in this country of Chicago has upwards of 40 shootings every weekend. A lot of them are taking the lives of small children you think the media care when a six-year-old girl was shot down while she skateboarding. That's not even in the news cycle. All they care about is the George Floyd type cases which they can use to charge that the United States is systemically racist and that all cops are racists that we have to cut their budgets abolish the police as the Minneapolis city Council was talking about going and made while this crime is skyrocketing all over the country.

James Carville former President Clinton's top strategist blaming trump for the crime rate has soared since Joe Biden became president makes perfect sense as part of the anti-truth world we live in, just tell I tell a big lie over and over that this was patented by Joseph Goebbels who was that of Hitler's propaganda minister and he said if you tell a big lie often enough people will believe it. That was perfected by the Soviets told lie after lie. Christian worldview returns in just a moment with a growing and aggressive segment of our society in full throated opposition to God in biblical Christianity.

The question has become. How can Christians stand firm and raise their children to do the same.

Can hand the founder and president of answers in Genesis. The compelling book titled real.

We rubber night with us today in the Christian worldview talking about the antitrust truth culture. We are now living in is not just a postmodern culture where you you can't you arrive at your own truth know there's this anti-truth. Another with the lies being told directly to us that Robert let's get into some of the response to this how we should respond. It's one thing I think as Christians we know that the than the non-regenerate the non-born-again person does not have the mind of Christ is and is not immersing themselves in the word of God.

The truth of the word of God is not being transformed by the renewing of the mind. So it's probably not that surprising. Maybe we shouldn't be too shocked that so many lies are being told to us all the time but it is surprising when you have the professing evangelical church in some of its leaders capitulating to some of these anti-truth ideas that are that are there more in the mainstream of society.

How do you see some examples of that taking place within the Reno takes place in the mainline denominations is a long time long long ago lost to the political left. But how do you see this getting into seeping into the evangelical church community.

This anti-truth is him Christianity today where the flagship of evangelical Christianity is a publication of a gone left.

They had an editor who recently resigned and he was never Trumper who basically said that you can't really be a Christian unless you vote for Joe Biden thought, okay, they've lost all sense of proportion here to me. That goes for all the never Trumper's and I like to remind them when I send them articles about the border collapsing and all kinds of horrible things happening now all over the country and also well at least we were spared from smooth tweets over so much better off than they have no answer because they they helped foment what is amounted to a Marxist revolution in Washington DC. It's that serious. You see more evidence in places like the Southern Baptist convention where they adopted a resolution embracing intersection malady. Well that's part of critical race theory, and that is the theory that says you can be a victim many times over in this white supremacist misogynistic society.

In other words, if you're a woman you're a victim. If you're a lesbian. You're a victim. If you're black lesbian here a triple victim and so therefore people are oppressed many different ways by the white patriarchy and they eventually they begin attacking the Bible itself send this is the handbook for the white supremacist Italy that control society when you combine that kind of higher critical reasoning, as they call it out with outright historical lies embraced by the 1619 movement in the black lives matter curricula you see people being told that if you're Christian you might as well wear Ku Klux Klan outfit you you're a hater you're a bigot. There are parallels to the 1930s Germany and David the kind of frightening were the Jews were first ridiculed and then singled out as villains and then finally persecuted and then finally herded into camps were nowhere near that an American yet, but the see the beginnings of the with the constant drumbeat in the media of how evangelical Christians are somehow the enemy of all that's good and decent rubber night with us today in the Christian worldview.

You also see in these colleges Christian colleges. This is so much capitulations going on on this issue of critical race theory that that God lists worldview has been imbibed so by so many Christian educational institutions and, as you make mention Christianity today, and other media outlets. Also, the idea of sexuality, the LGBT Q agenda is heavily pressing in on college Christian college campuses. This is extremely troubling and out to see the capitulation also with with organizations like world vision big evangelical once evangelical organizations your sing and roads all over the place seeing what's going on in mainstream society is now pushing hard into the Christian community, whether it's churches or parachurch organizations. Robert let's let's go to how to respond to these these things for for Christians listing today will start with where can Christians go to find out the truth on some of these issues were talking about. Of course, the Bible has the truth on all the issues for for life and godliness that it says in the New Testament, but there are issues these specific issues may not be directly addressed in the Bible. So where's a good place for for people to get good news sourcing will start with that one year after go to alternative sources because the mainstream media is as we've established here are just lying to us every day back I get the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post and the Washington times and I read all three papers every morning and it's amazing. It's like they're in different worlds.

Washington Times plays it straight there conservative paper, but their news pages are straight in her commentary sections conservative, which is why right for them.

I look at the Wall Street Journal in their news section is slightly more liberal but the cop there commentary section is usually excellent and I don't agree with everything in it. They do their homework, and there are some excellent columnists. Then I pick up the Washington Post, which is been taken over by Marxists in the newsroom and they've gone completely left since Jeff Pazo spotted a few years ago, is the founder of Amazon and the richest man in the world and he turned Marxist Lucent is newsroom and I look through the voluminous a section that's the front section, and every time I look at headline I figure okay, what's the agenda here. I never take it straight. I always rated as if I'm reading Pravda or is best to you from the old Soviet Union and the Russian people learned early on that they had to take with a grain of salt. Anything reported to them and if they wanted the real news they'd have to go to an underground source or think of the end of the article, whatever it is often the real news would be buried there reporter would be forced to admit the truth somewhere that didn't fit their agenda is so often operate the headline to look at the lead and then skip to the end of the article and see if there's a kernel of truth here. A better way to go about this is to go to alternative sources like one news now that's American family Association's excellent daily news site.

It's one news but town halls has a lot of good news and columnists go to the daily American thinker is a first-rate site was with very thoughtful columns I've written for in the past appears one more that's fairly new and that's the Epoque times EPO CH times. This is a national newspaper that was founded by Chinese dissidents who fled communist China and their mission is to keep America from going communist so they have excellent analyses of how the Chinese are playing us using our own media against us using corporations against us and buying up politicians and they report in their straight so that there are some alternative news sources and their many more, and course Christian talk radio's excellent source your program, but it's an curative to seek out other forms of information because the big tech is censoring on social media. The mass media is totally given over to a Marxist point of view on every issue we care about. I think more more people are turning to alternative mediate. You don't have to be on Facebook and go to The good of the way you go to gab, founded by a Christian grantor but there's an alternative lady arising, and the more people that turn to it, the less power the mainstream media have and all this gives one more recommendation that listeners go to Robert H. can you write excellent columns that are that are truth based so Robert, we appreciate the hard work you do in bringing out the truth in this in this anti-truth time that we live in, and I thank you for coming on the Christian Realty radio program today and all of God's best in grace to you so if you missed any of the interview today with Robert Knight.

As always, you can just go to our website the Christian to hear the replay of this program or any of our past programs now there's nothing really new here today, as we discussed this anti-truth culture, but there is something accelerating about it and as you go back to the very beginning of time. That's why say there's nothing new noticed a method that Satan uses to tempt Eve in the Garden of Eden and eat of that forbidden tree. This is the model for how you corrupt someone and make them sin. Tell them ally you persuade them to believe the lie in the act on it and this is exactly what is being done in our society today lie after lie is being told people believe the lies that act on them and their soul gets destroyed.

So here some Genesis 3 now the serpent, Satan was more crafty than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made.

And he said to the woman. Here's the first lie.

Indeed, has God said, you shall not eat from any tree of the garden. The woman said to the serpent from the fruit of the trees of the garden we may eat from the fruit of the tree which is in the middle of the garden, God has said, you shall not eat from it or touch it or you will die. She fended off the first lie that Satan told her, but he doesn't give up. Then he says the serpent said to the woman, you surely will not die blatant lie for God knows that in the day you eat from it your eyes will be opened and you will be like God, knowing good and evil. It's a bigger lie.

This time around. And so, what's the result does Eve send off this line will sadly she doesn't. When the woman saw that the tree was good for food.

She had looked at it dwelled on it and been now she's persuaded to believe the lie that it was a delight to the eyes and the tree was desirable to make one wise, she took from its fruit and ate and she gave also to her husband with her, and he ate these first sins against God corrupted our world and resulted in death to all people, and this is always the pattern we sin when we believe ally and then we act on that lie in this is why we must know and follow the truth and that truth is found in the word of God because God is truth. Hebrews 618. It is impossible for God to lie.

Another words she is truth. He is the source of truth John 14 six talks about God son.

I am the way, Jesus said in the truth and the life. No one comes to the father except through me. And finally in first John five verses 19 through 20. This is for believers. We know that we are of God, and that the whole world lies in the power of the evil one and that really explain so well.

What's going on in the world. We as Christians sit back and just amazed at the believing of lies will that's because the whole world lies in the power of evil one. Verse 20 and we know that the son of God has come and has given us understanding so that we may know him who is true, and we are in him who is true in his son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life. So if you are a believer you must thirst for that truth of the word of God. You must stand for the truth, you must proclaim the truth and you must teach that truth to your children. John MacArthur finish that message that we started with the day talking about what we as Christian parents must pass on to our children fail to teach your child to fear God and the devil will teach them to hate God fail to teach her son regarding his mind, and the devil will teach him to have an open mind, fail to teach your child to obey his parents and the devil will teach him to rebel and break his parents heart fail to teach your child to select his companions and the devil will happily choose them for him, fail to teach your child to control his desires. Send the devil will gladly teach them how to give into lust, fail to teach your child to watch his words speak the truth, and the devil will turn them into a liar. The devil does his work and that work is countered when parents do their work. Can we do it well. The key back in Ephesians 6, to being able to parent like this is back in chapter 5 verse 18 be filled with what the Holy Spirit yes you can do it you can do it in the strength of the spirit defendant conformity to the Scripture. I would think far less about correcting all the falsehood and lies that have marked this world since the beginning of time. You're never going to be able to straighten that one out.

You should strive in fighting proclaim the truth but don't expect the world is going to somehow come to the truth and believe it, never thinking to be okay. That's not what the Bible says is going to happen and if you are listening today and have never put your trust, your belief, your faith in the source of that truth. Jesus Christ, the son of God and what he came to do to die in the cross to pay the penalty that you deserve for your sin. He shed his blood so that you could be forgiven and they made right with God. If you've never done that you need to obey Jesus command to repent and believe in this good news that God has provided a way for you to be right with him encourage you to go to the website the Christian Read the page on what must I do to be saved because once you're saved. God gives you the Holy Spirit who gives you the help you need to understand the truth of God's word and to discern truth from lies that are going on all around us.
