That is only part of the trouble states are making lows so minority certain races find it impossible to vote That is voters repression when you do that you are not a free country any more Money buys way to much say in our country Big company's with there Lobbyist buy control so they can become even richer They all so buy politicians so they vote how they want and that is not for the good of the country Let get us take our heads out of the sand and let no one use us or our religion for there own use to get elected God and the way of the world never work together The devil has his hand for much or all for love is not in it.God can do much for all just not a dictator ship of my way no one else Blame the mess the wars made Help others put care not for your own country or the men who are suffering for it now By damage done to there mental health From the wars no matter the harm it done to the country's wealth Make war bay no taxes let the country go to pots

I am not pussyfooting around. :)

Oh, so true, Missy. I know people who have given up voting because of who has gotten into office(s). I try to urge them to return to voting because we have a responsibility to do what we CAN. Also, Paul had plenty to say in Romans about governments and such. I'm certain he'd vote if he were here today. : )

Never, EVER give up. Just pick yourself up and keep going.

Kallie, I agree. The body of Christ must find its voice in our society. With every group on the planet demanding their equal rights, believers cannot sit by and say nothing, do nothing. Yes, we must pray. We must also, however, preach the Good News, shine the light of truth in our world, in our community, in our churches and schools, in our voting booths.

I agree but also we need to not just lay down and let people take what is right away .. We have to be the one saying no we wont stand for this .. I know if we walk in the Spirit we will know when to take a stand as I said this am .. they made a dollar coin and took IN GOD WE TRUST OFF OF IT .. SO IF WE SAY WE DON'T WANT THAT WHEN THEY TRY TO HAND IT TO US .. GIVE US A DOLLAR BILL THAT SAYS IN GOD WE TRUST .. THEY WILL GET THE MESSAGE .. THEY WANT TO TAKE GOD OUT OF EVERYTHING I WONT JUST SIT AND LET THEM LIKE EVERYDAY THEY TRY TO TAKE MORE AND MORE WE ARE ALL THAT KEEPS DARKNESS DOWN WE ARE THE LIGHT ... LOVE YOU

I like what y'all have said. Ephesians 5:10-18 is the Armor of God passage. One vital piece of armor is the HELMET OF SALVATION. God gives us a helmet for a reason. Those flaming arrows from the devil won't be a problem to our minds when we're wearing our helmet.

Never, EVER give up. Just pick yourself up and keep going.

Well said, AVANELL! The fact that the enemy of our souls (a liar, and the truth is not in him) fires off an arrow of negativity, dark premonition, foreboding, grim expectations does not mean we have to accept it! Pluck it out, declare the word of the Lord, and toss it back to Satan so he can carry it to the lake of fire that awaits him. Bathing ourselves in truth is the only remedy. God bless!!!

Faith comes from hearing and hearing by the word of God. Fear comes from hearing what the devil puts out through his arrows into your mind as you listen to and feed on the bad news of world events, negative reports, other people who spread the bad news, etc. If we would spend more time feeding on the word of God and less time dwelling on the bad news of the world we would have faith to believe that God will take care of His own regardless of what is going on in the world. We must be aware of what is taking place in order to assess where we are on God's timetable, but to feed on negativity only produces fear. Any prophet that speaks for the Lord must line up with the word of God or it is not true. That should be our measuring stick.

The devil wants us to feed on bad news. God wants us to feed on good news. Which will you choose?

Bad news promotes fear. Good news promotes faith.

We live in a society addicted to news. What we get is mostly entertainment packaged as news, designed mostly to keep you watching, not to actually inform you of truth. Through it the world offers its views designed to manipulate your thinking and believing.

Our news program's most glaring fault is that they leave God out. God is at work around the world. But when do you ever see a report on the good things God is doing?

Commercial news programs, of necessity, focus on sensational and bad news items, simply to keep people's attention, so they can sell products through advertising, and stay in business.

What is the result of feeding in all this bad news? Does it make you feel better? Does it encourage you? Does it make you a better person?

As a citizen you do have a responsibility to be informed on some issues. But most people can do so without spending significant amounts of time each day.

Many people spend hours each day listening to the "news" yet find no time to read the Bible, or listen to teaching that will build their faith and improve their life.

We are in a fight of faith. The devil is out to diminish, or even steal our faith in God. How smart is it for a Christian believer to spend time allowing the enemy to fill their ears, eyes, and thoughts?

1 TIMOTHY 6:12 (NKJ) Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.

SAY THIS: I will invest my time in God's good news.
