Want to be a believable Christian? Don’t be ill-informed. Here’s how to recognize and filter bias from the media.
“Beware of false knowledge; it is more dangerous than ignorance.” - George Bernard Shaw Some people outside our faith view Christians as ill-informed fanatics spreading a dated message with no proof to support their beliefs. We make this perception worse when we spread false narratives, slanted ideas, and uninformed hearsay. This happens too often in the Christian community because we unwittingly trust our sources and are unable to spot bias in their message. This propagation of inaccurate or biased information destroys our integrity which makes acceptance of a faith-based message near impossible for non-believers. All media sources are biased and present stories in a manner they believe will please readers and ensure their loyalty. Christians must know how to eliminate bias from information and decipher the narratives. Are
