Whatever You Do, Don't Click This.

Guess who is a racist!
This cover-up will shock you!
The dark side of Jesus!

I've said this before but it bears repeating here.  More people read my negative titled blogs than my positive titles.  Why?

It works like this.  Have you ever driven by a car accident and tried not to look?  It's hard, isn't it?  Well, the internet and news work much the same way.  They toss out a ridiculous headline that makes you look or click.  After you click you discover that the article isn't really about the title.  So why do it?  Because people are paid for clicks.  One online news service pays their journalists $100 a week plus $5.00 for every 500 clicks on their article.  Clicks pay money!!

Integrity is lost and our cultures cynicism keeps rising, the lines between fantasy and reality are blurred and people don't know what to believe anymore.

What can you do!

Proverbs 11:3 The integrity of the upright guides them, but the crookedness of the treacherous destroys them.

Lead people with integrity.  Tell the truth.  Speak up against false statements.  Guide people away from sensationalism.  Don't gossip.

PRAY:  Dear Jesus, please help me to lead others into Your truth.  AMEN
