Proverbs 14:15 Fools believe every word they hear, but wise people think carefully about everything.

Propaganda has been a thing since time immemorial. It’s just that these days, with the way that all forms of media wrap their tentacles around every part of our lives, it’s become a much bigger thing.

Whether it be some “spin” that a journalist crafts into a newspaper article, or a political message, or a conspiracy theory or whatever, propaganda is incessantly chipping away at our consciousness.

And with the way that the algorithms work in social media, we are more and more being presented with the stuff that we naturally gravitate towards. Scary though it may be, we all gravitate toward some form of dogma; political, social – whatever tribe we identify with.

So before you know it, you end up accepting that dogma as the truth, without ever investigating it for yourself. Allow me to share with you a piece of wisdom that was written around three thousand years ago that has never been more apt than it is today:

Proverbs 14:15 Fools believe every word they hear, but wise people think carefully about everything.

I hate being called a fool, but that’s exactly what I am if I accept as truth a certain dogma with which I have an affinity, rather than investigating the facts.

In this day and age, it takes courage to think critically. It takes courage to ask the difficult questions. It takes courage to allow the facts to change your mind. But critical thinking stops propaganda dead in its tracks. Critical thinking – investigating the facts – uncovers the truth.

And as Jesus said, it’s only when you know the truth, that it can set you free.

Fools believe every word they hear, but wise people think carefully about everything.

That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.
