 Conservative commentators

My computer is down and I don't own a TV. So I wanted to listen to something at least so I turned on the radio and news of the shooting came through. After today's shooting of the Congressman and others not one of these conservative commentators has mentioned the word God, Jesus, sin or repentance. I feel a growing sense of danger overall for this country but also a foreboding that conservatism's major players mainly seem to advocate returning to a set of principles instead of the living God. You likely realize it also. Secular humanism is certainly a deception but why isn't secular conservatism seen as the flip side of the same deceptive coin.These commentators may claim to be Christian but I haven't heard a single word about God in their responses today. I'm not wanting to argue politics but I'm grieved.

 Re: Conservative commentators

Brother,

I personally feel it is unprofitable to even watch most modern new stations in america at this point. People are confused, angry, frustrated and fighting flesh against flesh. As true believers we know our struggle is not against flesh abut against rulers of the darkness.

 Re:

All of it is leading us down a path. Judgement is has already begun. We see it in our leaders, we see that the whole world is devoid of statesmen. The point of all of it and the way the world is going is about coming persecution of the saints. Consider if you will this 2 minute video and see the anger of Bernie Sanders. Interesting that it was a Bernie Sanders supporter who carried out the shooting yesterday.........bro Frank

 Re:

I wonder what the reaction would've been if mr. Vought had simply replied to the question, (posed in the video), by quoting John 3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

I wonder if the word of God would've come into question on the floor?

 Re:

Good question Fletcher, that is why we should not be ashamed of the Gospel for it is the power of God unto salvation............bro Frank

 Re:

Meanwhile, not one of the household name very famous conservative pundits have once mentioned the name of God and national sin. Can this in the end be as damaging as any rage and anger from the left? I've never listened to these folks before now except a tiny bit but for the second day in a row if they believe in Christianity and this nation's need to return to God they sure remain silent about it. Won't tune in tomorrow.

 Re: Conservative commentators

I used to wonder how some people could pride themselves on being able to recognize false prophets/pulpit pimps and be clueless to the "political pimps". It's amazing. I do believe there's a great deal of idolatry and “itchy ears” involved. You have to really be discerning because so many people are just merchandising the name of God and the title “christian”.

 Re: Conservative commentators (Talk Radio)

I don't listen to them either but some of my relatives have. When I was staying with them I would hear a bit. I noticed these commentators made me angry about whatever they were discussing. These dear relatives were very passionate about whatever the trending political issues were. Being in California there are plenty issues a politically minded conservative can worry over. I know that these commentators distracted me from the work of the Kingdom and waiting on the Lord for guidance. I have found that these voices become more of a temptation when I am not focused on Him. As the "prophets of the hour," they provide a vision of what needs to change to make the land profitable and successful again. These prophet-like figures can show up in any field and when we get some perspective on their projections the culture has learned to say, "It was something from the period." That comment is nothing more than admitting that these people have been prophesying from their own souls or under the inspiration of the Principalities and Powers of the Air.

EDIT: My comments are in reference to the commentators on American Talk Radio.

 Re: Tvs

Television shows are godless now. In my home country, I see how drama shows are about adultery, violence, revenge, anger, sex etc.

USA is the leading source of the filth entertainment (Hollywood).

It is hard to find a wholesome TV show or a movie to watch, even children TV show is corrupt.

When I moved from my home country to Europe, I was shocked that they have a pornography channel.

This is the sign of the times.
