We’re Not in Kansas Anymore (Humor)


The kids at Calvary Christian School ducked under their desks at the sound of a tornado approaching their school. It was later discovered however that what they actually heard was the church’s new contemporary praise band rehearsing in the auditorium…

Is Christian Radio Still Christian? part 2


Is Christian Radio Still Christian?  part 2

Last time, we briefly discussed what is apparently a new trend in America: Christian Radio that plays music and chit-chats about everything except Christ…

Ok. Like I said last time, I am not against heavily stylized music played on the radio because teens like this kind of music and I like some of it as well. I don’t want to hear it on Sunday morning in the worship service but that is another story…

I must admit, however, that only some of it is great in sound and lyrical quality. A clear message can sometimes be heard. The majority of the music, not so much. Just noise with a “He’s awesome” thrown in. Who is the He? That is my real sticking point with the Christian rock music. When the “He” never gets defined, everyone can conveniently mold their own golden calf…  

I heard a short ad on Way FM this morning where they were encouraging callers to leave a voicemail about how God has changed their lives. Ok. I hope God is changing the lives of young people but it sure ain’t happening due to Way FM! There is no message of any sort to be found there! When the sum total of your theology is songs that say “God is love, He is awesome”, you are not communicating anything of any value. “Love” and “awesome” will mean many different things to different people because there has not been a definition given.

Do you like knockwurst? Well, if I have never had knockwurst but I sincerely believed that knockwurst is lamchops and I like lambchops then my answer would be yes; however, the question is not about lambchops, its about knockwurst… 

Once we got to the place in America where we became afraid to talk about the Bible and JESUS and God’s rules and regs, His sovereignty, and His grace…we went bankrupt and lost the ability to do God’s work. I’m sorry to tell you this but you cannot simlutaneously shield God out of the picture to avoid offending someone and change their lives by opening God’s truth to them!

One more question for the new “Christian” radio… where is Jesus? He apparently is not found on your station unless you hear a garbled mention of Him in a rock song between the guitar riffs.

Wake up relevance-loving neo-liberals. You cannot peddle salvation like a used Chevy Nova. God is not mocked, we will reap whatever we sow. Take it to the bank.
