Have you thought much about how the social media giants do what they do? We talk about something, then suddenly information or an advertisement of what we were talking about comes up on our phones. These folks see what we look up, and then feed us more of that type of stuff.
It’s scary at times to realize how much government and social media have invaded our lives. What’s scarier is how they inundate us with what they want us to believe. They indoctrinate us with whatever narrative they want us to believe. They determine even how we will act and live and what we believe is true.
“Repeat a lie often enough and it becomes the truth,” is a law of propaganda often attributed to the Nazi Joseph Goebbels. For the last 18 months, we have been told to be afraid, that someone is trying to keep us safe, that if we just do things like wear a mask and social distance, then everything is going to be OK. These measures have been proven not to help at all, or at best could or might perhaps help.
Their stories have changed over and over again. Yet people still believe the narrative that the media and government have told us: “We had to ruin your economy so people could live.” It too turned out not to be true. What we must do is start believing the word of God and putting it into our hearts and minds. The only way to combat a lie is to know the truth. The truth makes us free if we will believe it and do it.
The truth is that only God can truly protect us.
Just a thought,
