Did you read the first part of The Road Less traveled?
I mentioned I could very easily watch the CNN’s, MSNBC’s, and the rest of those mainstream sources. If that’s what you do, there’s nothing wrong with that.
For me personally, I was trained and educated in the importance of unbiased reporting. So, I was shocked when I realized our major new outlets or sources were in fact biased and in some way, politically slanted. The most important thing is delivering the facts to the public.
I don’t sit here today and say all the news is fake, but I do question the accuracy. I do question the talking points of focus, and I do question a news story loaded with personal opinions. I don’t like the ostracization and casting out of those who seek alternate news sources.
If the mainstream news is biased and slanted then we have no other choice but to seek alternate sources if the truth is what we want. Life is short, and it goes fast. I don’t want to waste any more time.
Speaking of truth..
Jesus represented the road less traveled.
Today, is the observance of the “resurrection” of Jesus. Today is Easter Sunday, the day Jesus Christ rose from the dead three days after his crucifixion.
After isolating myself, meditating, and many hours and days of contemplation, I arrive at the conclusion that if you only take away from his story that he was crucified and willingly died for our sins, then for whatever reason, you’re leaving a lot on the table.
Jesus was the truth. He spoke the truth, he represented the truth, and he was hated for it. “What shall I do with this man,” Pontus Pilate asked the crowd. “Crucify him,” they yelled.
But he has done nothing wrong. We have, over here, Barabbas, a known criminal. Do we crucify the criminal, or do we crucify Jesus, a man who has done nothing wrong?
Jesus! Crucify Jesus!
That’s how much people hated him.
