A friend posted on fb that he thought the posting of political items was negative and
shouldn’t prevade our thoughts.
Of course, he brought religion in to prove his case.
We all do that to prove our point.
Saying that it is raining or that one is hungry, tired, jobless, homeless, moneyless,
or that some policial issue should be attended to is the statement of fact.
Negative maybe but fact none the less.
Should we ignore all facts not to our liking?

Consider this scripture?

10 Which dark and blackening deeds are enough to make hell itself shudder, and to stand aghast and pale, and the hands of the very devil to tremble and palsy.

11 And also it is an imperative duty that we owe to all the rising generation, and to all the pure in heart—

12 For there are many yet on the earth among all sects, parties, and denominations, who are blinded by the subtle craftiness of men, whereby they lie in wait to deceive, and who are only kept from the truth because they know not where to find it—

13 Therefore, that we should waste and wear out our lives in bringing to light all the hidden things of darkness, wherein we know them; and they are truly manifest from heaven—

14 These should then be attended to with great earnestness.

15 Let no man count them as small things; for there is much which lieth in futurity, pertaining to the saints, which depends upon these things.
– Doctrine and Covenants 123:10 -15

Enough said.
