John 3:19-21; "This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil.
v20 "For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed.
v21 "But he who practices the truth comes to the Light, so that his deeds may be manifested as having been wrought in God."
2Cor 13:8; For we can do nothing against the truth, but only for the truth.
Gal 4:16; So have I become your enemy by telling you the truth?
In the concluding segments of our study on doctrinal orientation we are noting some of the categories of Bible doctrine that God's Word reveals to the spirit led believer.
We are presently in Col 2:8; where believers are commanded to persist in doctrinal truth in order to maintain stability in their thinking and resist the pressure that comes from the propaganda, deceit and lies that are in accord with satan's cosmic system that are constantly being communicated by the demon mafia through the demon influenced fake news media.
Last time we noted that the woman fell prey to satan's propaganda, lies and deceit and Adam followed her into their rebellion against God and the consequence l was spiritual death, the creation of the sin nature, total depravity, and the status of "no hope."
We also noted that under God's grace policy the Lord Jesus Christ provided the only hope to these problems with his proclamation of salvation through faith in His future role as Messiah, seed of the woman, who under God's grace policy would become God's sin substitute for them and their descendants.
Adam and Eve accepted God's offer resulting in their receiving God's gift of grace and mercy that provided redemption, salvation, reconciliation with God and eternal life. Gen 3:15,21;
Everyone one of their progeny who will simply believe in Messiah receives the same grace package. John 3:16; Rom 4:5;
But since satan had usurped command authority over planet earth from the man they and their progeny would have to live under satan's evil influence in the adversity and chaos of satan's world.
Satan maintains his control over mankind by his perpetual use of propaganda and lies to deceive each successive generation of humanity into believing that the righteousness necessary for salvation comes from being as humanly good as you can be on your own while performing humanly good works for other people. 2Cor 11:13-15;
The truth is that the only way God's perfect righteousness that is required for salvation is actually acquired is by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, Messiah, the seed of the woman. Eph 2:7-10; 2Cor 5:21;
In his effort to accomplish his objective of controlling mankind, satan has packaged his deceitful lies so that they are alluring to those who function with a frame of reference that is based on human viewpoint thinking. 1Cor 2:14; Isa 55:7-9;
The capacity to recognize and reject the insidious lies of demonic deception and cosmic propaganda only comes from divine viewpoint thinking that is developed exclusively from a serious study of the Word of God under the ministry of God the Holy Spirit, 1Cor 2:15; 2Tim 2:15;
Col 2:8; This brings us to the definition of the phrase "philosophy and empty deception" or "deception without content." that refers to propaganda.
We have noted that disinformation is false information that is deliberately and often covertly spread as by the planting of rumor and innuendo in order to obscure the truth with the purpose of influencing public opinion through the public lie.
This disinformation is the propaganda that is used by the false communicator whose objective is to influence the uninformed "sheeple" into doing his bidding.
The English word "propaganda" is derived from the Latin word "propago" that means to spread.
It was originally by the Catholic church in the context of missionary activity and spreading the Gospel for the purpose of establishing local assemblies in remote areas.
In the context of communicating the truth of Gospel of Jesus Christ the word describes a positive activity however the word has more recently been used to describe more nefarious activity.
