                        I DON'T KNOW & I DON'T CARE!                     

                                               by Pastor Max Solbrekken, D.D.

A journalist on the streets of a 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. After 8 years of the present scandalous Liberal 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 following the Word of God to bring hope and healing to wounded souls, and comfort to those who mourn. Intense prayer and 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!


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 his 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;

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, 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 Heaven 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).

More than half of Canadians aged 15 and older are drinking more than recommended, Researcher say!

Moreover, another study published in JAMA Network on July 28 found that the number of women dying from alcohol-related conditions is on the rise. Researchers found that from 2018 to 2020, women’s alcohol-attributed mortality rate increased by 14.7 percent per year while the rate among men increased by 12.5 percent.


This year in Alberta, there have already been 596 deaths from drug overdoses, an increase of chlamydia, and 273 cases of syphilis! Is there no remedy? Is there no doctor in the house? Of course, Jesus the great physician stands ready to save and heal! We can call someone, invite someone, and pray for someone!

Christ’s sacrifice on the Cross for us, provides the solution 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, 36).


“If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater; for this is the witness of God which He hath testified of His Son. He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that beliveth not God hath made Him a liar, because he believeth not the RECORD that God gave of His Son.

“He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have Eternal Life, and that ye may believe on the Name of the Son of God.

“And this is the confidence that ye have in Him, that if we ASK any thing according to His will, He heareth us: And if we KNOW that He hear us, whatsoever we ask, we KNOW that we have the petitions that we desired of Him.” (1 John 5: 9-15)


Jesus promised to give us the Holy Spirit: “Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send Him unto you. And when He is come, He will reprove the world of Sin, and of Righteousness, and of Judgment.

“Of Sin, because they believe not on Me: Of  Righteousness, because I go unto My Father, and ye see Me no more; Of Judgment, because the prince of this world is Judged. I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot hear them now.

“Howbeit when He, the Spirit of Truth, is come, He will guide you into all truth: for He shall not speak of Himself; but whatsoever He shall hear, that shall He speak: and He will guide you into all truth: for He shall not speak of Himself; but whatsoever He shall hear, that shall He speak; and He will shew you things to come.

“He shall glorify Me; for He shall receive of Mine and shall show it unto you. All things that the Father hath are Mine, therefore said I, that He shall take of Mine, and shall shew it unto you.” (John 16: 7-14)

“Now the God of peace that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the BLOOD of the Everlasting Covenant; Make you perfect in every good work to do His will, working in you that which is well pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ; to Whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen. (Heb. 13: 20,21)

 Let us pray: Heavenly Father, I receive your offer of mercy, forgiveness, and eternal Life, through Jesus Christ’s substitutional death and resurrection for me. Come into my heart, Lord Jesus! Amen.
