Did you know that there’s this one thing that spreads faster than the coronavirus?
Actually, you have seen it on the TV, social media, and text messages. You might have even heard about this from your friends and families.
This one thing can easily jump from one country to another, from one community to yours.
A lot of people spread them without even knowing it. Sadly, there are people who intentionally spread it.
Do you know what this is?
I’m talking about fake news.
Yes, you heard that right.
Fake news is making the coronavirus even deadlier. In fact, a lot of people have been deceived by fake news and it may include me and it may include you.
The bad thing about fake news is that they are sometimes difficult to detect. If you are not careful, you might even be spreading it.
Worse, fake news are more often mixed with some truths to make them more believable. Fake news even use viral titles and click baits to make them even more popular.
You might have heard a lot of fake news lately about the coronavirus. Some fake news may go along this line: Hey, I have a friend from the UN or police, he said that they will be such and such.
They would even say that you should only share it to your close contacts as the government might know and arrest you. Other fake news includes news about how to cure coronavirus disease claiming that you only need to eat this kind of fruit or vegetable or you simply need to gargle this and that.
The fake news would even tell you to share it to as many people as people to save them from the coronavirus.
Now, do you know that fake news is as old as human beings. Fake news has already been in the Garden of Eden when the serpent lied to Adam and Eve.
Instead of sharing fake news, share the Good News!Tweet
What was the fake news of Satan? He said, Adam and Eve will not die if they eat of the forbidden fruit.
So, it is no wonder that fake news is so popular right now because it is authored by Satan himself! John 8:44 tells us that Satan is the father of lies.
Do you know what’s one of the best things you can do right now? It is to help in stopping fake news from spreading.
Before you share something verify whether it is true or not. Check the source if it is reliable. If it is from some obscure sources or a friend of a friend, then it is more likely fake news.
If you are not sure whether it is true or not, it is best not to share it.
Remember the principle by the mouth of two or three witnesses every word shall be established (II Cor 13:1). What it means is that we must not easily believe what we hear or read, but instead, we must take the initiative to verify and confirm. If in doubt, don’t share it anymore. Easy as that.
Let us bear in mind, “Prove all things.” This pandemic is actually a test to all of us and God is looking at how we respond.
Friends, when you share fake news, unverified information, you are causing fear, panic, and harm. Instead of becoming part of the solution, you become part of the problem.
Sharing fake news is considered lying and it is a direct violation of the Ninth Commandment, which says, “You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.”
So, let’s unite and stand against fake news. They don’t do any good. Instead of spreading fake news, share the good news. The good news that one day God will finally intervene and will put an end to all diseases in the world.
