Actually, that is not true. Evil does not triumph. God does. To God goes the victory. (Amen?)
I get it, I do. The world is crap. It is
violent, evil, insane, and scary. Really scary. Here's the thing: what will my watching the news do? Will it make it possible for me to stop "them" from doing whatever it is "they" are doing? No.
It will rob me of peace and God commands that we not be anxious over anything for it betrays a lack of faith in Him. If I cannot add a single hour to my life by wringing my hands in worry, why worry? And I could worry most people under the table. I could medal in a worry Olympics...
if I gave into it. So, I won't.
"But, Amelia, how will you know what is going on in the world?"
Simple, if it is really important, I will find out. See, the "news" isn't really. There is nothing new under the sun. Same sins. Same heresies. Without Jesus, it is all vanity and chasing after the wind. So, I will seek first the kingdom of God, pray, and stay away from the news. Even during elections. Especially during elections.
