James 3: 8 But no one can tame the tongue; it is a restless evil and full of deadly poison. 9 With it we bless our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the likeness of God; 10 from the same mouth come both blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be this way.
Above please note the portrait of a modern day “news” reporter. Especially at this time of year, when a mid-term election is in the offiing we see vile and libelous words flying back and forth from every side. These purported “news” stories are dependent upon a swift, emotional response to get people who consume them to “pop off” with their own uninformed opinions thereby increasing the cycle of rage and ridiculousness.
So, what are informed Christians who are well versed in their Bibles to make of all this? Jesus said it right “Render unto Caesar…” Luke 20 18-26. We should vote, we should pay taxes, we should pray for the “elected” officials, and (HEAR THIS) Trust God. The end of all this insanity is already written. All throughout the Bible the time of the end is foretold and is rapidly coming to pass. Do not be afraid.

God’s truth abideth still
