“See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ” —Colossians 2:8.

The news media is arguably the most powerful influence on what people think about any given issue. And today, news reporting and commentary bombards us from many different sources: network and cable television, radio, newspapers, and internet websites. Just change the channel and you are likely to hear a completely different opinion on the same news event.

No one is immune to being influenced by the media, including Christians. Where Christians get their news does matter. Marvin Olasky, the editor of WORLD Magazine, a Christian news publication, joins us this weekend on The Christian Worldview to talk about how the media is changing in America and what Christians should be doing to separate truth from error.
