Who 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.
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.
Ben Shapiro/ The Daily Wire
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!
