Last day to save Christian radio?
WASHINGTON – Today is the last day for public comments on a proposed Federal Communications Commission rule change some say would threaten the licenses of Christian radio stations from coast to coast.

At issue is a proposal that would require every radio station to take programming advice from community advisory boards representative of the area's population.

Advocates of Christian programming say that would require Christian broadcasters to seek advice from non-Christians and even those opposed to the Christian message. Some radio stations fear organized groups of atheists, for instance, could demand representation on the new FCC-mandated advisory boards that would factor into licensing decisions. ...

Would it be safe to say that freedom (in a Biblical sense of the word) comes from God? So let me ask a question, 'Why Should God continue to give freedom of speech to broadcasters who blaspheme His Holy Name, teach false doctrine, oppose the Truth and make merchandise of the things of God? and for that matter to those who listen to them and support them with their money?

We might all do well to humbly and prayerfully read carefully through what Jesus said to the seven churches in Revelation and do some self examination and ask God to search our hearts and see if their be any wicked way in me. (Would that include perhaps supporting and defending religious broadcasting that has a form of godliness and denies the power thereof?)

To me it is a simple freedom of speech issue, and another attempt to deny people of the Christian faith that freedom when it conflicts with current cultural mores. This together with the incident in Texas where the government went in to a religious community and separated every child from its parents, should be of concern to every Christian who refused to conform to the world. I am not advocating polygamy or child abuse by this statement, but to go and separate every child from its family was wrong. I would like to see how this would have been handled if this were a group of Muslims. Believe me, it would have not been handled the same way.

How long until the government can come into your home and remove your children because you believe that the Bible teaches that homosexuality is wrong you are now guilty of 'hate' speech? We need to be praying for true revival in this nation, and quit naming and claiming Cadillacs.

Fair point, but a quibble: In Jerusalem, rubbish goes to "Gehenna." Anyway, this fits my theory that the popular church is moving closer to Rome, both doctrinally & practically. What were the Crusades but an outworking of the same mentality that fuels much Christian tourism in Israel today? Blessed are those who believe, & have not seen.

BTW, contra Wikipedia & expected RCC posts, it does not logically follow from 2 Ki. 13:20-21 that relics are to be sought out by God's people.

How fitting and appropriate for WND to be highlighting the "need" to save Christian radio when at the same time they are peddling this stuff:-

"WorldNetDaily Exclusive

Give a piece of holiest place on Earth -- or at least borrow it!

The ultimate gift! Temple Mount soil beautifully encased

Copyright 2008

So the soil you receive will not be soil removed from the Temple Mount for profit or comemrcialism. It is soil salvaged on its way to the dump! Wouldn't it be an emotional and spiritual lift to bring it home on a future trip to the Holy Land.

WND is pleased to offer 3 unique and exclusive gifts. These keepsakes are of the highest quality and can be passed down for generations as timeless capsules for the cherished Temple Mount soil. Each gift comes with a special Card of Authenticity which also highlights the sacred and historical significance of the soil."

Their soil and more belongs in the dump.

Agree with you there, Jim, for once! There is so much good MP3 lecture, sermon, & hymn material now available on the Internet, Christian radio simply cannot equal it w/o abandoning the majority of its audience, which from the content in my area, seems to have a Norman Vincent Peale mentality.

I can't convince myself that Country programs are any worse, except for the boozing & wenching songs. With C&W, at least, bad theology is blatantly obvious.

I remember when I could hear the Moody Bible Institute Radio station. They were smart in their programming, they would have secular programming much of the time and then boom! They would hit you with the Word. Too many Christian broadcasting is nothing more than 24 hours of infommerical , and while this is the extremely rare case that what they say is true, it has the mind-numbing effect of all infommericals.

Also, many of these stations have such people as Dobson on them, which also poisons the message, [URL=]]]Division and Diversion[/URL], so in many cases Christian radio, are part of the walking dead.

It's sad to see how eager people are to give up their rights and freedoms, even of the churches to speak, because they do not agree with you. In the end, it will be the true Christians who are silenced and killed, and the rest will spout the government's line.

For example hasn't Focus on the Family which claims to be Christian knowingly and willfully editted their radio program so as to not offend the homosexuals in Canada, or how about TBN which claims to be Christian and how they took Zola Levitt off because they didn't want to offend Muslims or how about Moody Radio pushing psychartry, praising the Pope and promoting Rick Warren and his (apostate) Purpose Driven Movement, so called contemporary Christian(?) music, the entertainment of goats and the starvation of the sheep and the popularizing of very questionable religious celebrities? and I am sure you all could probably give multiple examples also.

Whoever proposed this rule is insane. I can't see how this is possibly good for ANY station, be Christian, secular or NPR.

Except there are many other stations that are great that would be affected by this decision.

I don't see what possible additional harm could come the stations in OUR area that call themselves Christian.

They're an embarrassment already. Maybe a change like this will get them to shut down.

Come to think of it, it would be great if we can get a rule like this for many of the churches. Maybe we can get a lot of them to shut down, too.
