On The News
Each day local, national, or
world news comes to our attention. What do we think about
these events or announcements? How should
the Christian respond to them? We hope to provide occasional
commentary on some of this newsa commentary that is
particularly Christian in orientation. Just what does the
Bible have to say about these world events? What does God
think about what happens in Washington, Atlanta, Los Angeles,
or Dallas? How should we view events around the world? How
should we understand the moral and spiritual implications
of this world?
John the apostle writes, "We
know that we are of God, and that the whole world lies
in the power of the evil one" (1 John
5:19). If the entire world, including its people and ways,
is under the influence and domination of Satan, the evil one,
how shall we view it from Gods perspective? The Lord
has not been silent about this. The Scriptures testify to
His principles of truth and righteousness that must guide
our thinking of what happens around us.
We plan for this section on the
news to be ongoing. The Lord willing, it will be a regular
feature of this web site. Plan to visit from time to time!
