Is 'Focus on the Family' Too Political?
Producers of the widely popular daily radio program "Focus on the Family" have pulled the show from a Columbia, S.C., Christian station after its general manager refused to air an episode he thought was too political.

After airing on WMHK-FM for 24 years, the radio program hosted by author and psychologist Dr. James Dobson has been pulled effective Jan. 2, reports the Columbia State newspaper.

"'Focus on the Family' seems to think the political agenda is intertwined with the spiritual agenda," Jim Marshall, the station's general manager told the daily.

According to the report, a letter was circulated to area listeners by the Focus organization that Marshall says read as if the station canceled the program. It was Focus on the Family, however, that decided to pull the show. ...

It was claimed that "slavery would never have disappeared had it not been written into law"--which is true as far as it goes.

What is also true, and far more important, is that slavery and Jim Crow would never have APPEARED without being protected by law.

Let's keep this in mind as we search for solutions to our political problems; they don't always need to involve government officials.

"Slavery would have never disappeared in America if it had not been written into law. Today most of us agree how horrible the whole idea was in the first place."

...I can almost feel the reconstructionists scrambling for their keyboards ....

It is important to note that while one cannot legislate salvation and repentance, we have a God-given responsibility to legislate righteousness and to pray for the same. This is a Biblical principle.

Slavery would have never disappeared in America if it had not been written into law. Today most of us agree how horrible the whole idea was in the first place. But we didn't get where we are by passifism. The same principle can be applied to abortion issue.

It has been Focus on the Family that has educated most Christians to the reality of our runaway judges. The Bible speaks plainly of the importance of righteous judgement.

Watching Sweden's arrested pastor and Canada's decision to censor the Bible along with the eleven people arrested in Pennsylvania - all over the freedom of speach in regards to homosexuality - should wake everyone up.

Focus on the Family has to edit every broadcast that deals with homosexuality before it goes into Canada. Just think how many people who need to here about the freedom and deliverance from this sin and that it is available to them. And by the way, repentance and deliverance they do preach brother!

My problem with Focus on the Family is not so much their politics but their humanistic psychology. This ought to be the reason to cease broadcasting Focus! They constantly affirm the popular notion of "self-esteem," which is anti-Biblical to the core. We are not commanded in Scripture to feel good about ourselves, but rather to recognize our sinfulness before a righteous and holy God!

Laws and policies can be changed without significant impact. Real change begins in human hearts.

As men and women learn the truth and the fear of the LORD, they depart from evil. Teaching Christian truth and the fear of the LORD is more central to the advance of Christ’s kingdom than campaigning for changes in laws and policies. (Proverbs 16:6; Psalm 34:11). It’s right to do both.

If laws and court rulings related to abortion were changed in the US, depraved human hearts would still seek abortions where they can get them in the US and elsewhere.

Changing the human heart is the deeper need. Only the Spirit of God can change the human heart. Men and women must be born again. God uses the proclamation of the Biblical Truth as a means for bringing about the new birth. (John 3:1-21).

Of course, it is professing Christians who make most of the financial contributions to Christian ministries. However, there is a great need to reach beyond professing Christians with an evangelistic message.

Organizations should clearly understand their purpose and goals. Parachurch organizations can play an important role in supporting the Church through broadcasting, publishing, education, and more.
