And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: Ephesians 2:1-2 KJV
I’ve heard my entire life how the media has such a profound responsibility when delivering the news. I see that increasingly today. From the incorrectly dubbed Don’t Say Gay bill, to the miscommunicated reversal of Roe vs. Wade. I’ve already done a previous post on the Don’t Say Gay bill, so I won’t revisit that, however, regarding the reversal of Roe vs. Wade, technically, it is up to the individual states to decide their respective laws regarding abortion. There is no federal protection for abortion, the media has not chosen to accurately represent this information, sparking violent protests, outrage, chaos, even the threat of danger to lawmakers.
Understand, I am pro-life and do believe this is a step in the right direction.
Thankfully, in my state, the governor made it immediately illegal to have, and perform abortions. All who perform abortions, save for saving the life of a mother will receive 10 years in prison and a fine of $10,000 to up to $100,000 in a criminal felony case. I do not know the specifics of other states. I do know that abortion remains legal in 27 states in the United States. And of those 27 states, there were immediate protests once the media announced the “overturn” of Roe vs. Wade.
Really, my point of this post.. with the weighty responsibility of the media – every outlet, I don’t care if you consume ABC, CNN, FOX, NBC, etc… My prayer is that they would use their outlets for good and deliver the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth! Because, it matters. People hang onto the words of the media to determine every move they make, or so it seems. Rather than sowing seeds of discord, chaos, and unrest, my prayer and hope is that they would be beacons of light to point others to Jesus, the true light.
I mean, imagine the load that could be taken off the police and government officials.. We could totally all work together, especially in these trying times.
