Consider the Source

5/23/2020: Considering the Source is more important today than ever before. There seems to be more agenda driven information, hidden agenda stuff, conspiracy theories, deception, deceit and out right lying than ever before. One does not have to look very far for confirmation.

This has forced me to return to the common denominator; consider the source. I want to learn about the source and “where are they coming from?” Knowing the source allows me to put in perspective the information. Most false information has some plausible factual basis weaved into the story line. This serves as the “hook” to get us to buy into the argument. Discernment is necessary to avoid advancing to the “line and sinker” stage, the response the author is seeking.

We are searching for the “truth of the matter”. Interestingly, the ancient literature indicates that truth is a person. (John 14:6) Truth is not the end result of reason or scientific research. It is a person; really? Test the hypothesis and settle this for your self.
