Stop the rumor mill (before they rumorize us all)

Stop the rumor mill before they rumorize us all! Some evil people are probably planning to steal your conspiracy theory and turn it into a video game.

Rumors on a rant wreck relationships! Spreading rumors is a form of emotional bullying. Re-rumoration is to take a rumor, repeat it, and spread it.

It’s easier to surf the rumor-net than it is to fact check. America needs a rumor-consumer index. Political rumors are not the most reliable source of truth.

The rumors you spread tell more about you, than they do about truth. To create a widely spreading rumor, ignore truth and tell people what they want to hear.

People who make room for rumors, crowd out truth. Too many rumor consumers create panic and cause shortages of wisdom and kindness.

The growing rumorization of politics is inciting anger, hate, and violence. Rumors travel faster than the swiftness of logic and the speed of kindness.

Beliefs based on rumors are often wrong. Rumors coat logical reasoning with thick, emotional paint, that stains your thinking.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
