A Bible Journey, 3: The Origin Of Fake News
"And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die"
"Gospel" means good news (see What Gospel Did Jesus Preach?) - "good" in that it is joyous, but also "good" because it is true. At least, the true Gospel is truly good. Fake "gospels" are not only worthless, they are destructive. Liars are creators of the "Babylon" of today's world of confusion.
"1:6 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: 1:7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. 1:8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. 1:9 As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.
The first humans were given the good news that if they obeyed the LORD, they would live forever beyond their physical state and time of testing.
"2:15 And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. 2:16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: 2:17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die." (Genesis 2:15-17 KJV)
But Satan came along, with his septic, blasphemous, insulting mouth ("Satan" literally means accuser, or blasphemer; see also Gossip Against The Gospel and The Character Assassins) and made the first "fake news" broadcast. His very effective and successful method was to accuse others of being a bold-faced liar when in fact he was the bold faced liar who used fake news to accuse others of spreading fake news. He skillfully manipulated facts into lies.
"3:1 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
But with the lies immediately came the carnal lusts to believe the lies.
"3:6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. 3:7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons." (Genesis 3:6-7 KJV)
The rebels then ran and hid, not just from the LORD, but from the Truth. Hence then also began the human weakness, the human hypocrisy, of deflection - pointing the finger of accusation toward someone else as a means to cover what the actual guilty one has done (see also How Are Your Sins Covered?). In the man's case, he blamed the LORD for putting the woman there with him i.e. "the man said, the woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat."
"3:8 And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day [see also The Spirit Of The Breeze]: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden. 3:9 And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?
The woman's excuse was to point the finger at the Devil who did not force them to do anything. He simply offered them a lie, "fake news," that they chose over the Truth that they already knew. That is why they were guilty. Deflection, pointing the finger at someone else, is just as evil as the sin already committed.
"3:13 And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done?
Fact Finder: What does the prophetic "pure language" mean?
This Day In History, June 26
221: Roman Emperor Elagabalus adopted his cousin Alexander Severus, thereby making him the heir to the title of Caesar (a title that originated from the family name of Julius Caesar (see The Roman Emperors: Julius Caesar).
The ancient Roman republic is generally regarded to have begun around 500 BC, replacing the monarchy that existed by the conquering founders. The government was superficially democratic, term-limited, and based upon a principle that no individual or area of government could rule absolutely (a term that some have come to call "checks and balances").
Many of the Roman institutions and architecture from the time of Julius Caesar are found in national capitals today - in a deliberate effort to copy them. One of them from Julius Caesar is the U.S. "Statue of Liberty." While most are aware that it was a gift from the Roman-Catholic people and government of France, very few are aware that the Statue of Liberty was a deliberate, as stated by its builders, reproduction of the ancient Roman goddess Libertas, idol-worshipping Rome's "goddess of freedom." A 2,000 year-old Roman coin from 42 BC, when Julius Caesar ruled the Roman republic, is shown below - including the idol's name, the Latin Libertas, in English meaning "Lady Liberty" right on the coin. As stated by its builders, the face and the crown are identical to the Statue of Liberty.
363: The Roman Emperor Julian was killed by an arrow during a clash with Persian cavalry (Persia is known today as Iran; see also The Arrival Of Nehemiah's Cavalry). Jovian, a Roman general, was proclaimed Emperor by the battlefield troops (see also A History Of Jerusalem: Pompey And The Caesars).

1409: The Church of Rome entered a "double schism" when Petros Philargos was made Pope Alexander V - along with Pope Gregory XII in Rome and Pope Benedict XII in Avignon, France (see The Struggle For The Papacy; listen also to our Sermon Constantine's Papacy).
1483: Richard III of England began his rule, after deposing his nephew Edward V. Edward and his brother Richard were later murdered.

1936: The first flight of the German Focke-Wulf Fw 61, the first functional helicopter (see also Who Was The First To Fly?).
