You can turn off the entire news feed by clicking on the gear sprocket and uncheck "Faithlife News".

That's the reason why I've deactivated Faithlife News entirely from my Logos Home screen. When I want to read news, I do that elsewhere, and when I open Logos, I don't want to read news. 

A wise decision!

Dennis Edward Bean:

Is anyone besides me totally disgusted with an article singing the praises of Hillary Clinton as a person of faith on the Logos Home page? Political pandering gone wild! Logos promotes a candidate that endorses the killing of unborn babies for any and every reason is something I cannot support.

That is rather disgusting!! I didn't see it...glad I didn't. While I am NOT contrasting her with Trump in any way, since Trump has his own set of issues to be contended with, the idea that the NBC would prop up Hillary as a candidate of faith tells us just how far left the church has moved in the last few decades, and how close we actually are to the end of time. I think our Lord referred to these circumstances as "birth pangs." The idea that any church would give a platform to ANY candidate (Republican Democrat, Libertarian, Independent, etc) that does not strongly and clearly stand for the sanctify of life is very distressing on one side of the coin, yet to be expected, from what we know about the watering down of the gospel for the approaching end times, on the other side of the coin. 

Im with the one who suggested turning FL news off altogether, so as not to risk getting my blood boiling when Im trying to begin Bible study! LOL. 

But this does beg the question...since these channel options are preselected by Faithlife, why would they even provide liberal news outlets like the GH and the CP to begin with? Why not have just a few, solid, conservative options? I think that would be the wise, Christ-honoring thing to do.

Actually it is the response I find rather disgusting ... everyone should recognize that Logos offers resources and links to view other than one's own. So why not simply (a) not read the article - just like you don't read something of no interest (b) turn off the news feed or news source depending upon your personal choice and (c) quietly move on.

I am glad to share with all you that I contacted Logos via email about my concerns at the same time I posted on this forum. I have received several encouraging emails from Logos. One explained how the Faithlife News is an automated process that has no one reviewing the articles. I was also informed that a former employee set the whole system up and that Logos is reviewing the process and will be making positive changes in the future. I am elated that Logos listens and cares about the feedback they receive from those who use their products.

I for one will be very upset if they move the feed to an even more conservative bent but then Verbum doesn't offer the feed at all. I simply use both Logos and Verbum to be sure I have the right information on how Logos works. I have, however, previously offered Faithlife a list of several newsites they might add to have a more balanced Protestant view.

I always find it interesting when the Christians aren't too happy with the Divine governmental selections .... of course us US'ers won't know His new selection until early November. My fundementalist sister was none too happy with the previous selection; I reminded her of the Selector.

For the curious, it's surprising how many times in the Bible, that the point is repeated.  Test out your Logos topic search.

Dear Faithlife,

I appreciate having a variety of channels from which to choose and the option to have the feed on my  homepage, or not.

 And if you don't like it change the channel or turn it off ๐Ÿ˜  What are you going to do, leave the country if Hillary gets elected?  Come on people, grow up! Stop being so nitpicky ๐Ÿ˜œ

Ps. Thank you FL for giving us options and to be able to choose between the many leaser evils (e.g. Trump vs Hillary) LOL

Thanks MJ for making the suggestions to Faithlife and I agree with your earlier observation about the response. In these latter days especially its healthy to consider reading material from wide range of sources and especially authors with balance - this goes for theological and biblical studies as well as the news from the media. People certainly have the freedom for righteous anger' in many areas of life - but isn't it misplaced at a news feed? Few issues in life are so easily resolved as this one. Keep well Paul

MJ I would be happy if Logos / FL posted more conservative news feeds. I get angry when I see Logos / FL posting something like this with Clinton when her stand is not Biblical, but anti she also has and continues to support LGBTG just like Obama which I also have not use for. These people are not our brothers & sisters in the faith regardless of what the claim to be. As the Bible says "You will know them by their fruits". And their fruit is anti-Christian.

MJ - "I have, however, previously offered Faithlife a list of several newsites they might add to have a more balanced Protestant view."

Request to MJ,

I unsuccessfully searched for a previous posting of your recommended newsite list. Would you be wiling to share your list in the forums?

Thank you!

Conservative means different things to different folks. I personally find some self-ordained conservatives to be quite radical.

Thanks Lynden. I thought Faithlife news was news about Faithlife and their products. I never knew there was a way to select channels or that channels even existed. I clicked on the link you posted. The channel selection was on the top right corner. I turned off the Gospel Herald.

I have to say I didn't know this either!  Thanks!

DAL:  Have you considered that the OP, like me, didn't even KNOW that you can turn them off.  Consider giving people the benefit of the doubt before calling them names. 

Unless, of course, you're perfect. 

Oh wait, that's Jesus, and even though He is perfect, He says,"But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High; for He Himself is kind to ungrateful and evil men."  Luke 6:35
