Paul Calvert looks at good news stories from Bethlehem, and the importance of giving to your local community.
We hear a lot about fake news. With all this fake news around, how do we know what is real and what is not?
Thankfully the Bible is not fake news. We can know the truth and the truth will set us free.
Many times news can be set to an agenda, so it can be negative, or create fear, if that fits the agenda.
I see it all the time living here in Bethlehem. Sometimes it can be the truth, but not quite the whole story. There is an agenda attached.
The news generally isn’t positive. After you have sifted through the fake news, then what is left is usually bad news. We don’t often hear encouraging or uplifting news stories, it’s usually doom and gloom, like a mass shooting, or a war.
But living in Bethlehem I see good news all the time. While the mainstream media are focused on rioting in the city, I can see what is really going on, as I live here and often it is good news.
