Christian Radio

This blog has been established to talk about Christian Radio (the industry) and to encourage those who are working in the industry. I would like to talk about news, music, programs and whatever else comes up. My goal is to get listeners and the professionals to talk about the issues to help make the ministry even better and stronger. Tell all you know about this blog.

Going to Rromania

I'm on my way to Romania to visit one of our partners, Little Samaritan Mission. They broadcast Mission Network News in Romania on 21 radio station, and 13 in Moldova. They also translate MNN into Romaniana and Russian. I'm looking forward to meeting them.

"End of The Spear"

I've been watching the "Christian" response to Chad Allen's casting in the movie "End of the Spear." I can't help but think who Jesus would be hanging out with if he were here among us today. If you remember, he was criticized for hanging out with sinners. In one case it was a prostitute. In another, tax collectors.

As Jesus was getting more and more popular, do you think He asked the question, "Wow, if I take an interest in 'those' people, will I give them a platform to express their views?" I truly believe he would take in big interest in those practicing homosexuality. I also think HIV/AIDS would be high on his radar.

We as Christians have the ability to come across as being unloving, uncaring, bigots, who only believe in 'what's right and wrong' and not show compassion to those who have been led down the wrong road of sin and unbelief (which is what all of us want apart from Christ). Or, we can choose to show a compassionate heart. To pray for someone who obviously needs Christ as much as we do. Let's face it ladies and gentlemen, we're all beggars looking for bread. As believers, we found it. Let's not be afraid to share a little with everyone who needs it.

I'm not endorsing Chad Allen's casting in the film, nor am I against Allen's role. What I am praying is that God's uses his role and this character to work a miracle in His heart and lead Allen to Himself. What a testimony that would be, don't you think? I hope you all will pray with me.

While I haven't seen the film yet, I do plan to see it.
