Matthew 27:1–5 (NIV)

(Role play Judas. Throw down the bag of coins) “I thought that would ease my guilty conscience that was driving me up a wall. I still can’t believe it. I thought the Jewish leaders would at most beat him a bit and then let him go. After all he was innocent of all the charges brought against him. Innocent! So innocent, in fact that in the three years I followed him I never saw him do anything wrong. That is what is so agonizing, I betrayed innocent blood. And I had such opportunity.

God's Good News and Bad News is not "Fake News"

Genesis 1:7–9 (NIV84)
7 So God made the expanse and separated the water under the expanse from the water above it. And it was so. 8 God called the expanse “sky.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the second day. 9 And God said, “Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear.” And it was so.
Genesis 1:15–17 (NIV84)

“Fake News”. How many of you have read or heard that expression within the last week or two? It is hitting the media quite frequently lately. It refers to news items brought out by certain news agencies that some feel is fake news, either totally false or altered to meet someone’s desires. Sometimes we can just cast it aside as another fiasco in our political society, but sometimes it casts doubt in our minds as to what news we can trust and what we cannot. When it comes to what news is given us in Holy Scripture, Satan loves nothing more than such doubt or blatant mistrust.
