The News: Is Changing the Channel the Solution?

Changing the news channel is the solution to so many conservatives these days. I can see how that will reduce your stress and give you peace. But is that the real solution? Can you really go through life without knowing what’s going on in the world? Doesn’t God want you to be aware of things so you can pray intelligently? Isn’t it our Christian duty to try to make our country and our world a better place? If we are commanded by God to pray for our leaders, should we not also know what to pray for them (1 Tim. 2:2)?

I know that almost all of the news these days is slanted toward the left side. But there are things we can do. When I read the newspaper, I generally just read the title and only as much as I can stand. And I always talk to myself about it and ask questions. Here are four articles headlines I read—with my comments and questions.

Parents relieved as Pfizer seeks child vaccine approval

–But how many parents really want this?

Trump tried to pressure atty. General

Yes, he was trying to do what’s right! He was trying to stop the election fraud! Is anyone tired of all the Trump bashing?

Senate Ok’s temporary debt limit extension

–Is that really good news? Do we really want more debt?

Biden makes case for vaccine requirements

Is that good to take away our freedom?

I think it is important to ask questions. Also, I think it is important to have alternative news sources—other than the mainstream sources. Fox news is still fairly good. I know that they have tried to plug in those liberal voices to make it fair or something, but you have a brain and you can see what voices are the best.

Check your radio stations. Here in Minnesota, there are a number of channels that have more conservative voices. Here is a list of them that I think are fairly good.

  • Clay Travis and Buck Sexton program (they are replacements to Rush Limbaugh)
  • Sean Hannity show
  • Jay Sekulow
