and said to Him, "If you are the Son of God, throw Yourself down. For it is written: 'He shall give His angels charge over you,' and 'In their hands they shall bear you up, lest you dash your foot against a stone.'"
Jesus said to him, "It is written again, "You shall not tempt the Lord your God.'"
Matthew 4:5-7 (NKJV)
There are many ways that people get information and find out about what is happening in the world. However, not all of the information we receive today is accurate and factual. Some of what is presented as information (facts, knowledge, and data), is really misinformation (incorrect or misleading information), and even disinformation (false information deliberately spread to conceal the truth). The question then is, how can we tell what is accurate information and what is not?
When the devil tempted Jesus in the wilderness, the devil presented Jesus with misinformation. The devil quoted most of Psalm 91:11-12, but the devil presented what was said in a misleading way. Jesus was very familiar with God's Word and His response was to bring accurate information from Deuteronomy 6:16 to refute what the devil had said. This is the way we must also respond, with God's Word. We need to know the facts of God's Word for ourselves to avoid and recognize whatever misinformation or disinformation the devil and the world present to us.
