Father, we ask that you would use the state of California as a cautionary tale for the rest of the nation. Do not let the ideas of California spread, but instead, let it be a warning that is heeded around the nation.

Many Californians are fleeing the state’s debt, high taxes and liberal policies. Will they bring those to the states they are fleeing to?

From CNBC. More than 360,000 people left California in 2021, in what some are calling “The California Exodus” — many leaving for states like Texas, Arizona and Washington….

California continuously ranks high as one of the country’s most expensive states to live in. The median asking price for a home in California is about $797,470 — only 25% of the state’s households could afford that in the fourth quarter of 2021.


California’s population growth has been declining for more than 30 years now. But thanks to the rise in remote work due to the Covid-19 pandemic, those trends have accelerated….

Do you think these Californians will bring their policies and values to other states? Share your thoughts and prayers below.

Most people in California are not leaving for political or religious reasons in my opinion. It’s the economy stupid” applies here and elsewhere. Both liberals and conservative middle and lower class people move because the cost of living is just too high! They come in large numbers to the Midwest and bring their politics with them……they invade small towns and do not mix with locals just as is the case with any other immigrant. In time the cost of living goes up for the rest of us, too.

Okay you guys this is the most ridiculous mind-set that has been prevalent in this issue for years now. If the people that are leaving California-, are leaving because California has turned into a satanic Cesspool of communist terrorism and tyranny.. If they are leaving – does that not indicate to you-, that they don’t like it.???
Is that not just a little bit obvious….

How much longer do we have to parade around completely oblivious to what is required of our thinking… That is maybe some enlightened thinking. The same mindset that constructs these type of media presentations -and articles- is the same mindset that continues to use Incorrect and dangerous and worn-out terminology- like “vaccine”.. when in fact anyone who cares to be honest.. and acknowledge the elephant in the room -will have to confess that there are no covid vaccines.. And yes the people that are leaving California.. because they don’t like living in Satan’s house..so , that would simply be-, to come to the not so difficult conclusion- that all of the hundreds of thousands of people that are leaving California-, are leaving because they want to go somewhere where people are sane- where they embrace conservative values …where they cherish the family-, and Worship the Lord Jesus Even those who have not been saved yet-, or only have marginal religious views.. have been assaulted by this.
Does it not seem obvious to you that if the people that LIKE what is going on in California.. that they would not STAY… is that not obvious..?? This is such a worn-out subject.

Without a heart-change, worldviews don’t change. Even then, many Christians do not hold a Biblical worldview for many and varied reasons. Let us as God’s people. embrace and welcome emigrants, love them in Jesus’ Name, and some will be saved; others will change their worldview.
Father, forgive us for being wary of people who emigrate from one location to another. Forgive us for not embracing those who are fleeing some form of danger. Forgive us, Lord. Teach us to love the unlovely. You are moving in our world, shifting people and nations. Help us to be on track with what You’re doing. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
