News has never been as plentiful as it is right now. Everywhere we go on the internet, we find ourselves looking at what is happening in the world. Not only on the news channels and websites, but through social media, and even through entertainment. Social critique, politics, and world-views are clashing head-to-head all around us. Knowledge has never been more readily available, and truth has never been in greater scarcity.
For many believers, the issue has become “How do we stay connected to current events without being bombarded by the atheistic and materialistic propaganda that floods the news?” Thanks to the work of Joseph Farah and WND, many Christian now have a place to go where they can read the news without being deluged in mainstream, secular opinion. Here is their Mission Statement:
“WND is an independent news company dedicated to uncompromising journalism, seeking truth and justice and revitalizing the role of the free press as a guardian of liberty. We remain faithful to the traditional and central role of a free press in a free society – as a light exposing wrongdoing, corruption and abuse of power.
“We also seek to stimulate a free-and-open debate about the great moral and political ideas facing the world and to promote freedom and self-government by encouraging personal virtue and good character.”
There are not many news sources that put the words “good character” in their mission statement. WND (formerly WorldNetDaily) was started in 1997 by Joseph Farah and his wife Elizabeth. Since that time, WND has become one of the most influential news sites on the web, with over 5 millions users per month.
What is truly unique about Joseph Farah’s work is that, despite WND’s widespread success, the company continues to be dedicated to telling the truth while maintaining high moral standards and following the direction of a CEO who is a devout Christian.
If you are unfamiliar with Joseph Farah’s writing, we hope you get a chance to check out his new book The Gospel in Every Book of the Old Testament. Would you like to hear about the work of WND from Joseph himself? Travel with Joseph and Elizabeth Farah in September of this year on a magnificent Mediterranean and Israel cruise, featuring 7 days on a 5-star cruise ship, a stay at the Waldorf Astoria in Jerusalem, and guest lectures from New Testament scholar Dr. Craig Evans and Dead Sea Scrolls curator Dr. Adolfo Roitman!
