I just received this e-mail by a friend. What do you think about it?
WYLL AM 1160 Cancels Christian Radio Program Due
to Pressure from the Clergy
"Believe God no matter what the Clergy tell you"
may be too much for the clergy to stand. Salem
Communications received a few complaints from
nameless, faceless sources about our teaching,
prompting Salem/Wyll AM 1160 to cancel our show
We were told that they had one call to their
station manager, and one Pastor mentioned us over
a lunch meeting. What is our crime? Our crime is
preaching the gospel of the grace of God. We have
been accused of going against mainstream
Christianity. Thank God for that! It seems like
no one believes that modern Christianity could
possibly be in Apostasy. Even though the entire
history of Old Testament Israel, and the letters
of Paul concerning the last days of the Church,
tells us that every age ends in Apostasy.
I guess if you have pretty buildings, millions of
subscribers to a Christian magazine, and
multi-million dollar budgets, you couldn't
possible be in Apostasy.
What is the duplicity in all this? I received a
call from Salem Communications a few months back.
They told me how happy they were with the program
and that they like what we are doing. And since
they like us so much they would like to move us
>from our 9pm time slot to a better time, 8PM.
Since we moved up we've had great live shows with
great calls, wonderful feedback by way of phone
calls, e-mail and even a little monetary support
for the show. The show was doing very well both
for us as well as WYLL.
The real issue is this: We believe and teach that
the Lord Jesus Christ is the Savior of all men,
especially of those who believe. And were are
told by Paul to be teaching these things.
"This is a faithful saying and worthy of all
acceptation. For therefore we both labour and
suffer reproach, because we trust in the living
God, who is the Saviour of all men, especially of
those that believe. These things command and
(1 Timothy 4:9-11)
However, WYLL wants to pigeon-hole our teaching
to make it out to be something it isn't. While
we've tried to explain our doctrine to them, it
has fallen on deaf ears. Whether this is out of
fear of other Clergy or fear of orthodoxy or
history, we are not certain.
In any event, we will be continuing our ministry
in teaching the truth. Stay tuned for more audio
files on our web site, DVDs and other means to
get the message out. For those of you who have
been listeners, thank you for your support. If
you believe this message, you are responsible
before God to make it known to others. You
greatest enemy is the Adversary, Satan; and who
are Satan's instruments? The modern Christian
world! Remember his ministers masquerade as
ministers of righteousness.
