    Charlottesville Eyewitness Questions Media Coverage

    Published on

    I‘m confused. I’m serious. I was in Charlottesville, Virginia, during the riots and what I observed and what I saw in the media’s coverage are, for the most part, two very different narratives.

    Although the atmosphere was volatile everywhere I walked, I have to believe that it was Sovereignty that kept me away from the physical confrontations. I did, however, observe verbal ones. I saw various white supremacist groups filled with hate and evil intentions. They were armed with weapons and ready for a fight. I also watched members of Black Lives Matter as well as Communists/Marxists, carrying their hammer and sickle flags. They were also filled with hate and evil intentions.

    After returning home thankful that I was not injured, I turned on the television and, as expected, there was wall-to-wall coverage. The media was slamming the various white supremacist groups (and they should). But I immediately noticed something very perplexing. Very little if any coverage was being given to the various Communist and Marxist groups and violent Black Lives Matter and Antifa activists. It was as if the white supremacists were the only ones who were filled with hate. I kept waiting and waiting for someone to show images of the reality that we, who were actually there, observed. It has been several days since the riots, and I’m still waiting. . . .

    Simply accusing someone of moral equivalence doesn’t make them guilty of it. The accused might be telling the truth. I realize that to the world the truth doesn’t matter much anymore, but the Jesus who lives in my heart continues to pull me toward Himself and let’s be clear, He is Truth. Jesus always tells His followers, “Just tell the truth.” When someone does not tell the truth, they are not following Him. When we are no longer allowed to tell the truth, our society is soon to collapse.

    Our country is descending into chaos before our very eyes. The last thing we should do is retreat to Never Never Land. (Excerpted from The Christian Post, reporting by Brad Huddleston.)

    Let’s seek God for Truth, because Jesus is the Truth. Ask Jesus to guide and direct our media consumption and show us how to intercede for our nation in these times.

    Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. (Jn 14:6)
