As of last week NBC’s world news anchor man Brian Williams has been caught in a lie from his 2003 Iraq Helicopter incident and now more possible lies have come to light. From having rockets fired under his helicopter in Israel, being in the Katrina flood in New Orleans and working in the White House during the Carter administration Williams is now under question whether any of these events truly happened the way they were told.
Proverbs 12:17 An honest witness tells the truth,but a false witness tells lies.
Why does this matter you might think so what if he spun some half truths to make the story a bit more exciting who wants to hear from a hum drum reporter.
Well it does matter, truth matters as the customer we should expect NBC to report the truth, I know that’s a stretch but a free press should be a responsible press
Yes truth matters, if we wanted half truth stories then NBC should disclaimer the nightly news with Brian Williams, “this may or may not be truthful account of today’s news”
Proverbs 12:19 Truthful lips endure forever,but a lying tongue lasts only a moment.
In my opinion NBC News and Williams are walking a fine line of dishonesty and truth. Williams works for NBC and represents the network no matter where he is and what he does, that’s the responsibility you take on when you report the world news every night to potentially everyone in America
Proverbs 19:5 A false witness will not go unpunished,and whoever pours out lies will not go free.
Will NBC and Williams continue to tell tall tells, will NBC allow half truths in the newsroom well that might just be entirely up to you the viewer.
End of the week in January once again and has the news calmed down well kind of kind of not. Our president made a move that radio talk show host Glen Beck feels that it shows where president Obama’s heart is on Islam.
Nor Beck and I are saying president Obama is condoning the raid and killings at Charlie Hebdo but with this philosophy one is not shocked that this type of raid and killing would happen thus why go to event that disrespected his faith or send anyone for all that matters. Regardless of the fact it was in my opinion disrespectful of the President not to go or send the Vice President after all that’s what VP’s are for.
The other new item that I have been following close has been Pope Francis embracing climate change. You may or may not think Pope Francis is a big thing because you’re not Catholic but believe me this is a big issue that affects us all. The Pope is the biggest religious spokesperson in the world and when he speaks he not only speaks for Catholics but for Christians everywhere.
It is my opinion that this is a very dangerous issue for Pope Francis to tackle. One environmentalism and climate change is basic communism in its roots and core. Pope has to know that climate change not only deals with population control but with economic destruction as well if he does not know or understand this then he is quite frankly ignorant more to come on this issue I’m sure of it.
This is of the Dalai Lama using what I think is yesterday’s news to make people think he has this wonderful geniuses of thought. Well Dalai you’re not, lots of us already knew this. We say this all the time “work work and pay your bills then die” this is nothing neither new nor of great intellect.
What gets me with these post of Dalai Lama, Gandhi or Buddha is this is nothing geniuses. God has already spoke and discussed this in this case the Dalai Lama has just restated what King Solomon wrote in Psalms 127 1-2.
What I feel on people that cling on to others like Lama, and Gandhi are just people that are afraid to look for God and his philosophy in the Bible.
They feel less threatened by men that are held in regard by the godless but feel like someone is judging them or they feel like they are becoming that religious nut down the street if they open up a Bible or read a book on Biblical studies much less try a Bible study or church. Very sad yes but I believe this to be true. I also believe this to be true as well, those of you that seek God will not be disappointed and will be fulfilled.
Finally this ducktails from the Paris incident and that is free speech, free speech is a double edge sword if you didn’t know that already. Charlie Hebdo was a pretty vulgar magazine that not only attacked Muslims but Christians alike.
To embrace free speech we also need to embrace ethics and morality to help balance it out. Yes it was wrong for those Islamic terrorist to kill because some magazine blasphemed Mohammad but it was morally wrong for the same magazine to disrespect people that are held in regard or not like they did.
Yes they have a right to do so but was it right to do so. I personally think it is wrong of them to disrespect Nuns, priest and people of prominence in other religions minus atheism. This is why I keep saying morality and ethics are so important in your life; it might even keep you from getting killed some day.
