Should we Support Non-Christians?

elevationWho to support with our listening ears?

In the morning while at work I sometimes have the opportunity to turn on the radio. Personally I can not stand contemporary Christian music, so I always resort to talk radio. As someone that has always heard, “you should be on radio”, talk radio has always been intriguing to me. I am not sure if you have noticed as well, but there are rarely any Christians on talk radio. Should we support these radio programs?

Glenn Beck/ Wretched Radio

From 9am to Noon Glenn Beck is on the radio here in central Ohio. I used to enjoy Beck’s radio program until he was infected with Trump Derangement Syndrome. I still love Glenn Beck’s vision for his company, but he often gets too theatrical for his program. TDC has gotten the best out of Beck. img_0109

Glenn Beck is a Mormon and does not believe in the same Jesus Christ that you and I do. Is it okay to support him with our extra income or listening ears? Ben Shapiro is a Jew and does not believe in the same God as we do. Should we then still support The Daily Wire?

This is actually a blog post where I am asking the question for a response. I am fully intrigued by your thoughts on this matter because I have often struggled with it. To be honest, the only Christian radio program that I can listen to is Wretched Radio with Todd Friel.

Shapiro offers a radio program that a lot of millennial Christians flock to for his political ideology. When he discusses the Bible, especially the Old Testament, his theology gets very foggy. When discussing the age of the earth he says that everything in the OT before Abraham can be argued as a story instead of historical fact. It has always interested me how other religions skew and misrepresent the Biblical text.

Sure, sometimes I still tune in to Beck and Shapiro, but I often feel conflicted. It is like reading a fiction book before I read the Bible. Should I be reading a book before the Bible? Should I be listening to other radio programs before a Christian host or pastor?

God bless and have a wonderful Saturday!

Are we Getting Tired of This Yet?

Tomi Lahren. Ben Shapiro. Back at it again.

 

Yes, it is in fact a basic requirement to be pro – life to be considered a true conservative, especially a conservative titan like Lahren is on social media.

The Achilles heel to Lahren’s popularity among conservatives is her stance on abortion and her pro abortion views. Shapiro has made it clear in the past that he is not a fan of Lahren and has often poked fun at her on his podcast. At least when I used to listen.

Why did I quit listening to his podcast? I feel weird supporting non – Christians and because each day it was the same outrage routine. I get tired of being mad at people because of their political beliefs.

With the recent debates surrounding the chance of Roe v Wade being overturned, it was only a matter of time before Shapiro and Lahren threw jabs at each other again on social media. Below are some highlights of the recent exchange:

Shapiro got into a recent altercation with Candace Owens on Twitter and she used the “conservative thought police” argument against Shapiro, so I am assuming that Lahren saw that nickname from her exchange. This conservative thought police view been a recent argument against Shapiro as he is often viewed as the thought leader among conservative evangelicals and conservative millennials.

She does make a strong point here. Shapiro was definitely anti-Trump during the campaign, but he was not as strongly opposed to Trump as was Glenn Beck. Nonetheless, there have been decent arguments that conservatism would be healthier if Hilary would have become President.

Here is where Lahren makes her weak point:

Abortion has and will continue to be a hotly debated issue in America. It is still a strongly held belief that abortion should be illegal among conservatives and definitely is a belief among evangelicals. Pro Life should be the only viewpoint among evangelicals, but some “Christians” still try and argue the latter. To be pro choice is to really be pro abortion, but that does not sound as nice when trying to debate the viewpoint.

I pray that Lahren and other Christians see the flaws of their views and repent. The view that life is okay to be stopped is utterly inhumane and immoral at every level of the child’s life. The life that God has breathed into us is something that should not be interfered with and certainly not destroyed.

There are also many fans of Shapiro in the Christian world. Sure, his political beliefs are common among millennial Christians, but we should be cautious in holding him up in such high esteem. Take this recent exchange he had on Jesus Christ, for example:

I thought Shapiro was going to have some intellectually thought out response on why he does not accept Jesus Christ as the Messiah, but I was proven wrong. His long, thought out political beliefs have been met with a short, narrow minded view of Christ. Shapiro exposes himself as an uneducated Jewish man on the history of the TRUE Messiah, Jesus Christ.

We all need to pray that his heart and the Jewish people’s hearts will be opened to Jesus Christ and that they will be filled with the Holy Spirit and repent, so we can see them in heaven as well. We need to be cautious and loving when witnessing to the Jewish people and express the love that we have for them. It is my understanding that Shapiro works with many Christians, so we should pray that God’s Will is done through them with Ben Shapiro.

God bless
