Take any of the headline events of our day—Covid-19, accusations of systemic racism, the January 6, 2021 Capitol breach, and the homosexual/transgender movement—and you will see a recurring pattern.

Disinformation (i.e. lies) is propagated by those with power and influence. Those who dare speak the dissenting truth are silenced. And those with power and influence gain more of both.

This is an age-old scheme. Consider what took place after the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Matthew writes in his gospel, “when they [religious rulers] had assembled with the elders and consulted together, they gave a large sum of money to the soldiers, and said, ‘You are to say, “His disciples came by night and stole Him away while we were asleep”’” (Matthew 28:12-13).

Now who would believe such an obviously specious claim? Well, it turns out lots of people. Which is the most tragic part—souls are led away from the truth, not just on issues of our day, but on belief in the One and only Savior, Jesus Christ.

This weekend on The Christian Worldview, we’ll examine how this age-old scheme is used today and what Christians should do in response.
