I like to stay informed, but with so many voices screaming and hollering it's no easy task to find the truth - I'm not just talking about world events, but even such a simple thing as doing research, because there is so much profit driven drivel out there it's becoming increasingly difficult to find reliable and unbiased information.
A while back I heard a young person say, "my generation doesn't even watch the news any more." At the time I thought it was kinda crazy to say something like that, but now I am beginning to understand why he would say it. I'm sure there is a balance to be found between the right and the left, the main-stream (or "lame-stream" media as someone called it) and the expose buffs, but you sure have to wade through a lot of garbage to arrive at an informed opinion.
It's much easier to just ask the Lord what He thinks. He'll speak to you if you'll listen!
