A Biblical Response to Sensationalism, Bias, and Hype in the Media. We are joined by Dr. Dan Olinger (Professor, Bible Chair at BJU). Topics discussed include: Recognizing sensationalism in media makes money but is NOT Biblical. Fake news is wrong about Americans being so “Angry.” The role Christians can bring in finding solutions to problems in our country. Solutions – Understanding the Sovereignty of God and how it controls our reactions to the media.
Could you balance the concept of wolves among sheep?
It appears we face a lot of apathy among American Believers, and many Christians don’t seem to be upset about things that we should find upsetting. Romans 12:9 says to “abhor that which is evil” and Ephesians 5:10 says we are to “reprove” the works of darkness. How do we preach the message of putting our faith in action without crossing the line into scare tactics or sensationalism?
Are there times when people who know Christ as Savior and believe God is sovereign should panic?
Are Americans as angry and mad as the media would lead us to believe? Compared to other nationalities, is America more polarized as a whole?
Is this current generation seeing more hype and sensationalism than previous generations?
