I may run into some opposition for this particular post but I’m willing to accept that, because I cannot overstress the absolute necessity of maintaining an acceptable level of credibility when it comes to being an ambassador for Jesus Christ.
I’ve indicated before that the days are long gone when you can take something that you see on the Internet at face value. If we, as Christians, want to be considered as relatively trustworthy or in other words “believable”, then we must first take the necessary logical precautions before we decide to disseminate or republish information to our circle of friends and acquaintances on our various multimedia applications such as FaceBook or Twitter, as a couple of examples.
And, as providence would have it, there is an excellent example that I can use as a demonstration of this necessity.
As some of you may know, a 26 minute documentary was recently released entitled “Plandemic”, the Hidden Agenda Behind COVID-19 and literally millions and millions of people viewed it, including many Christians. Not only did many Christians view it, many Christians also drew attention to it by posting the link to it, along with their concurrence or agreement of its contents, to all of their followers, friends and acquaintances on their various multimedia applications.
I’ve indicated that fact checking today is NOT an optional choice that can be determined as not being necessary. It indeed is necessary. But rather than you taking my word for it, I would ask you to seriously take into consideration the recommendations of J. Warner Wallace and Frank Turek in this recent online video where they discuss this particular documentary:
And just for good measure, I also have a podcast where J. Warner Wallace speaks about principles to keep in mind when investigating questionable claims. The link provides both the audio podcast AND a written transcription of the dialogue:
And I’m also going to include a link to an article that discusses the dangers associated with Christians who buy into conspiracy theories that is enlightening here, should you have the time to check it out.
I initially spent about five hours cross referencing the various claims of the documentary “Plandemic” with knowledgeable and authoritative sources and I’m going to share with you what I found. I know, there are a lot of links but within 24 hours there where a huge assortment to pick from and I’m only providing some of what I found. Before you check these links out though, I would like to ask you this question:
Had you done your homework and checked into the validity of the claims in this video before you decided to disseminate it to your followers, friends and acquaintances, would you still have reposted it and recommended it?
And a follow-up question:
If your decision changed after verifying the claims of this documentary, what does this show you?
