Fake News? What About Fake Religion?

This past election cycle has been crazy. You could put it all under a circus tent because it literally is like a circus on reality TV. Maybe past elections have been like this and I just didn’t realize it….But it’s been crazy. The idea of “fake news” and “alternative facts” have truth-is-minebeen thrown out there in the last few month or so. This has all been very alarming to me. Why?

The Kingdom of God is furthered by other-centered love and not by what you can get others to think of who you are. Position and status do not further it…. nor does money. Only real genuine self-humbling love shown by Jesus.
