I DON'T KNOW & I DON'T CARE! by Pastor Max Solbrekken, D.D.
A journalist on the streets of U.S. city asked several people: "What are the two greatest problems we face in our country today?" Finally, a young man answered, "I don't know, and I don't care!" Immediately, the Journalist had the subject for his daily radio talk show. He answered: “Youve got that right: I don’t know, and I don’t care!”
Many are unaware of the problems in our nation and don’t care! Politicians should listen to their constituents and pass righteous laws. Marxist leaning politicians have changed our nation through the legalization of dangerous drugs and promoting child - destroying laws. We must vote for a moral leader like Stephen Harper, who made Canada debt free, with 10 billion dollars in the bank when he retired. Under the present scandalous Administration, Canada is now debt- ridden!
The Canadian Taxpayers Federation claims that the clock and Canada’s federal debt are growing by $878 per second, which is $52,701 per minute, $3.1 million per hour, or $75.9 million every single day. The debt clock is currently over $713 billion, and Canada’s federal debt continues to grow daily.
Preachers must seek God for wisdom to deliver His Word. A Pastor is a shepherd operating in the power of the Holy Spirit and obeys the Word of God, to bring hope and healing to wounded souls, and comfort to those who mourn. Intense prayer, supplication and studying the Bible will widen our vision to see beyond our needs to that of others!
Parents must always watch over and supervise their children. The devil constantly seeks to destroy their young lives with drugs or perversion! The Bible says: Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” (Proverbs 22:6). We must spend time with our children and give them sound advice with much love and caring!
SATAN IS THE ENEMY!
The Bible states: “Casting all your cares upon Him; for He careth for you. Be sober, be vigilant: because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour; Whom Resist steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.” (1 Peter 5:7-9)
We live in a very troubled world, and many don’t want to be involved in solving someone else’s problems! As Christians we must stand for righteousness, compassion, salvation, and deliverance, through the Blood of Christ and His glorious resurrection from the dead!
We must acknowledge the awful carnage Satan has brought upon the world and the destructive harvest of a sinful life. We must declare war against all evil and unrighteousness and the ongoing wickedness the Prince of Darkness has unleased upon the earth! When we fully understand the evil of SIN and the devil’s sinister motives and operation, we are armed with Truth!
The Bible states: “Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither His ear heavy that it cannot hear, but your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid His face from you that He will not hear.” (Is.59: 1,2)
Knowledge, however, is vitally important for anyone seeking to help others who are in trouble! For believers in Christ, it is necessary to seek God for His help to understand the need and to bring His liberation to the many who are bound by Satan, the enemy of God and man.
IF MY PEOPLE SHALL PRAY!
“If My people, which are called by My Name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from Heaven, and will forgive their sins, and will heal their land.” (2 Chron. 7:14).
Heartfelt, believing prayer is necessary to reach God on behalf of lost souls in our city or area! He that never slumbers nor sleeps waits for our cry for help. He said: “Offer unto God thanksgiving; and pay thy vows unto the Most High: And call upon Me in the day of trouble, and I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.” (Ps. 50: 14,15)
“Wherefore He is able to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by Him, seeing He ever liveth to make intercession for them. For such an High Priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens.” Heb. 7:25, 26).
Jesus Christ invites us all to fellowship with Him through the Word of God and the Holy Spirit: “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock; if any man hear My voice, and open the door, I will come into him, and will sup with him, and he with Me.” (Rev.3:20).
JESUS KNOWS AND CARES!
This year in Alberta, there have already been 596 deaths from drug overdoses, an increase of chlamydia, and 273 cases of syphilis! More than 32,000 Canadians have died of toxic drug overdoses since 2016. And in 2021 there were 2,272 illicit drug overdoses in British Columbia!
Is there no remedy? Is there no doctor in the house? Why have we allowed this terrible situation to exist? Can we not vote out the amateurs who are controlled by the left - wing ideologues who worship the earth, but refuse to obey the Word of our Creator? Jesus the great physician stands ready to save and heal! We can call someone, invite someone to church, and pray for someone!
Christ’s sacrifice on the Cross for us, provides the solutions to the many needs of humanity! SIN is mankind’s greatest problem. The Bible states: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” (Rom.3:3); “For the Wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ is Lord.” (Rom. 6:23)
The Bible states: “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world but that the world through Him might be saved.
“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. He that believeth on the Son of God hath Everlasting Life.” (John 3:16, 17, 23). Let us pray: Come into my heart, Lord Jesus! Amen.
