James 1:5
If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

This is a promise God made to His people before there was even mass literacy, much less mass media. He alone is the original source for truth and wisdom, not any institution of man, whether intentioned for good or ill. And while it can be frustrating and make going about the business of day-to-day life more complicated when societies go through phases of questionable or conflicting methods of communicating and acting on whatever happens to be their personal perception of truth at the time, we're not left helpless or hopeless in dealing with it. God never becomes any less God just because imperfect humans continue being imperfect humans.
