What the Bible Say About Misinformation. As more and more people turn to God for answers to the coronavirus, hunger, homelessness, unemployment and destitution, we find ourselves being bombarded with so much misinformation from the people and organisation that should be truthful; instead, we do not know who or what to believe.
The important thing to recognise is that we have a magnificent book called the Bible that will give us all the answers that we need, so let us delve into the words of God.
Exodus 23:1 Thou shalt not raise a false report: put not thine hand with the wicked to be an unrighteous witness. It is a sin and against the word of God for anyone, including the governments of the world, to give God’s people misinformation, as is stated in the book of Exodus 23.1.
Proverbs 11:13-14 A talebearer revealeth secrets: but he is of a faithful spirit concealeth the matter. Where no counsel is, the people fall: but there is safety in the multitude of counsellors. The lies and misinformation that Donald Trump is telling the nation, as you can see here, are against everything that the Almighty stand against. Misinformation is a weapon that the Devil uses to create chaos and confusion.
Proverbs 26:20 Where no wood is, there the fire goeth out: so where there is no talebearer, the strife ceaseth. Misinformation is like wood to fire; if there is no wood, the fire goes out, but so long as someone is adding wood to the fire is continues to burn, and therefore we must extinguish the fire if we want to have a productive life.
Proverbs 20:19 He that goeth about as a talebearer revealeth secrets: therefore meddle not with him that flattereth with his lips. When we pay attention to misinformation, we give the Devil and his band of evildoers power only to achieve if we give it to them. We must cast them down and disregard their lying lips and reduce their grip on God’s people, and then the Devil will fail.
Proverbs 18:8 The words of a talebearer are as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly. It would be best to recognise the dangers of misinformation as the scripture says misinformation goes down into the innermost parts of the belly and can cause great harm. We must refute and destroy misinformation each time it rears its ugly head, as God warm us what these deeds can accomplish, and none is good.
