Sermons tagged #Disinformation
Like Jesus, attempts are made every day to discredit the Gospel message of Jesus Christ, the Biblical worldview, and the messengers of His truth. Unfortunately, many of His messengers discredit themselves without any help by saying they believe in Christ but living like they do not. We live in a world of lies, and we are being manipulated every day. Why? Because the goal of manipulating narratives or messages is to control how we think. There is a battle for our minds, for how we think. The fierceness of political unrest in the world is evidence that this is a serious battle, whether you believe it or not, and whether you engage in it or not. How does deception take place? We know pride makes us susceptible. But how does manipulated information reach our minds? How does the poison of deception get into our thoughts? How are bad ideas communicated? Language like programming code is the means of conveying ideas and instructions to achieve specific outcomes. Like computers, humanity communicates and validates information and ideas with language. If machines can be more persuasive in the way they communicate, they can be used to manipulate a message to sound more credible than the truth. With computer technology, we have come to a point in our culture where machines can be used to deceive us better than people can deceive us. **Subscribe at patrickbriney.com and receive a free book and updates on Dr. Briney's new resources. **Visit Life Changing Scriptures to download free resources at https://lifechangingscriptures.org. ----------CONTENT---------- 00:00 Worldview Warfare Summary 10:34 Manipulating The Message 15:37 Avoiding The Danger Of Deception 21:35 Manipulating With
The prophet introduces a new concept here, it's that we have to have a heart change, which is a new way of thinking. The Christian goes through a mind transformation process. We have to begin thinking like God does. This is what discipleship is about, crucifying our ways, thoughts, and life, then adopting that of our Teacher, Our Lord, and Savior Jesus Christ. Let that mind be in us that was in Him.
Worldview warfare is about gaining power to control, to make the rules about how we will live, and to prevent competing worldview opponents from gaining power. The power to control what rules and laws we live by is at the heart of understanding our times. How do we compete in a world torn by competing worldviews and ruled by Satan? With proclamation and demonstration of truth, the values and message of Christ, and the Gospel message. Other worldview proponents will use persuasion as well, but only when it suits their end goal. They are not bound by truth and honesty. They will resort to any means of manipulating information to control the decisions others make. **Subscribe at patrickbriney.com and receive a free book and updates on Dr. Briney's new books and resources. **Visit Life Changing Scriptures to download free resources at https://lifechangingscriptures.org. ----------CONTENT---------- 00:00 Humanistic Worldview Goals 03:18 Competing Worldviews 12:22 Denounce Satan Not Christ 15:12 Using Truth To Compete 16:25 Responses And Agendas of Worldviews 22:52 Seizing The Moment For God's Worldview 26:58 Manipulation Of Information 32:49 The Manipulations Of Worldview Narratives
In a world of free-flowing information, with truth mixed with misinformation, disinformation, and mal-information, we must learn how to think well and learn to discern. It is the price of being free to choose what we believe. Learning to think well and learning how to choose what you should believe is an imperative when living in a world designed to deceive. The alternative is to let someone else choose the news they deem worthy to be known and believed. This is not an option for those who understand that father of lies and god of deception controls this world. The solution is not to censor and control information. The solution is to learn how to think well and to discern truth without being angry or fearful. **Subscribe at patrickbriney.com and receive a free book and announcements about Dr. Briney's new books and resources. **Visit Life Changing Scriptures to download free resources at https://lifechangingscriptures.org. ----------CONTENT---------- 00:00 Good Decisions Require Good Thinking 06:38 Information Overload 12:37 We Live In A World Designed To Mislead 21:38 Four Truths About Our World Of Disinformation 22:54 Five More Truths About Our World Of Disinformation 30:23 Five Point Summary About Disinformation 31:41 Finding Comfort In Knowing Christ
In this message we go over a few examples of quotes that people use that supposedly show well known figures speaking against the Jesuits, but in reality turn out to be fake. Overall we discuss the concept of disinformation and how people can become unwitting disinfortion agents discrediting themselves and the truth in the process.
We will spend the bulk of this sermon looking at three major ways to lie, and how to counter each of them. The ability to distinguish between lies and truth is key for everyone who claims to serve Jesus Christ, who is the Truth. The Bible does not say "Follow Jesus and you will be able to know for certain how effective a particular vaccine is." Instead, I'm talking about something different, something we could call "narrative analysis." I want you to be able to evaluate claims not in terms of technical science, mathematics, and history, but rather in terms of what these claims say about God, the world, and humanity. We are Christians are uniquely well-positioned to evaluate claims based on what they say about these larger things.
CURRENT EVENTS UPDATE: (1) Video Clips: Candace Owens explains that The Great Reset is prepping the world for the Antichrist while Israeli scientist Yuval Noah Harari gleefully describes the Orwellian globalist deconstruction of human privacy and the end of freedom and free will. (2) Video Clip: Florida Governor Ron Desantis and former Democrat Congresswoman and 2020 Presidential Candidate Tulsi Gabbard denounce the Biden Administration's "Board of Disinformation" calling it a "Ministry of Truth" and we call it an act of Communist oppression. In our study, we follow up our study, "As It Was In The Days of Noah," with, "As It Was In The Days Of Lot." Similar but with distinctions and differences. These were the days of Sodom and we look at archaeological confirmation of Sodom's sudden destruction and how that points to our days as a sign of the end times. https://bbfohio.com
