Challenge statistical predictions

In some fields the statistical data that are collected, analyzed, and published for public consumption can be especially useful. But many statistics produce and perpetuate the expectancy of evil and limitation in various areas of life. If we accept them, we're subjecting ourselves to the destructive influence of negative human outlining. We're throwing our mental doors wide-open to belief in the necessity of evil and to the fear this belief brings. If we try simply to ignore such predictions, their influence, however subtle, usually remains.

It is essential to nullify the effect that negative statistics can have on our thinking and thus on our lives. This takes vigorous prayerful effort. But why should we identify ourselves and our future with the evil claims of a past material record?
