Fake News Stories and Twisted Scriptures - 2 Timothy 2:15

Fake News Stories and Twisted Scriptures - 2 Timothy 2:15
Some news stories are full of errors and twisted truths and some presentations of the Gospel are also riddled with errors and twisted truths...

I read a story about a man arrested for driving under the influence of caffeine. 

The story was promoted by a number of legitimate news sources.* 

But it wasn't true. 

The only substance discovered in the man's blood was caffeine, but he was arrested for reckless driving, not for drinking too many espressos. 

This reminded me of the way Biblical truths are often handled.

Half truths, twisted meanings, lopsided facts, and biased explanations designed to make God look bad and Christians look stupid.

But perhaps the most tragic twisting is done by Christians themselves, taking a few passages out of context, missing the balance and tension in Scripture, learning incomplete principles.

That's why 2 Timothy 2:15 should be every Christian's life verse:
Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth. 


* I found it on both an NBC news affiliate (http://nbc4i.com) and UPI, United Press International (http://www.upi.com), which claims reliable news reporting since 1907. I believe both have since removed it.
