“…I will send my terror ahead of you and throw into confusion every nation you encounter. I will make all your enemies turn their backs and run…” –Exodus 23:27

During biblical times, the act if spreading “fake news” was strictly prohibited. Exodus 23:1 indicated people were commanded to resist acting as purveyors of false information; according to the verse: “Do not spread false reports.” Such a command appears to be equivalent to the Ten Commandments and, incidentally, complements the ninth commandment: “Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.”

Is there punishment for sharing “fake news?”
In response to the question, can something bad happen if “fake news” is spread? According to the Bible: Yes.
Those who spread “fake news” will face God’s curses, afflicting them with poverty, destruction, and death. Deuteronomy 28:15-68 and Matthew 7:26-27 offer such warnings.
It is advisable to listen to the word of God and obey everything that is written. God, Himself, is absorbed by reading the Bible. It also empowers readers.
God’s words are trustworthy, especially His promises of prosperity, along with a bright future.
He can be relied upon to fulfill his promises.
