One thing I have observed, recently. Our news sources have a profound impact on our attitudes and opinions. It sounds obvious, but the non-obvious part is how large the impact actually is.
We have an inflated opinion of our own objectivity.
So how does one seek the truth of current events? The only hope at getting the “true” facts versus the “fake” or “alternative” facts, is to get facts from multiple world view sources. Don’t just get your facts and opinions from multiple sources. Your multiple sources may not be multiple, but may in fact be singing from the same song sheet.
It is easy to get the “world’s” take on the facts. Every mainstream radio and TV program will give you the modern culture’s take on the events of the day. One cannot help but hear their message.
Therefore, it is imperative that you expose yourself to other views and interpretations of the same data – even and especially if you disagree with what you hear. It is critical to the hope of objectivity to hear multiple sides.
17 The one who states his case first seems right, until the other comes and examines him. [Proverbs 18:17 ESV]
So here are some podcasts that discuss “News and Events from a Christian World View”. I listen to these podcasts often. I recommend them as highly as possible.
