My daughter used to say that ALL the time. Until we took time to talk about the news. As Christians, we NEED to know what's going on in our world. How else can we talk about our faith in a relevant way? When you hear the words, “In the world, not OF the world,” you begin to understand WHY news is important. There are a lot of Christians who feel the same way my daughter feels. If we don't listen to or read news, how else are we going to know when Christians are being persecuted for their faith? How will we know when people are in need following natural disasters? Jesus said it best. In summary: “If you give a cup of cold water in my name, you do it unto me!” News helps us find the needs—then reach out with Jesus.
