It is clear to anyone who has been paying attention that the mainstream news media is not trustworthy.
But that brings up a quandary: if the news media is not trustworthy, how can we know what is going on in the world?
Easy: use the scriptures.
In this post, and all of my posts, canon scriptures means The Bible, The Book of Mormon, The Doctrine and Covenants, and The Pearl of Great Price.
There are a lot of prophecies in the scriptures, including all of Isaiah, all of Revelations, much of Ezekiel, much of Daniel, much of The Doctrine and Covenants, and much of The Book of Mormon.
If we read and understand the prophecies, especially in Isaiah and Revelations, we will easily see what is happening in the world today.
But that is not all. Those who understand the prophecies will not only know what is happening now, they will understand what will happen in the future.
So forget the news; use the scriptures. You will know everything you need to know.
