Default what exactly is this new "Christian Talk" channel?

anybody know just exactly who is going to be on this channel? obviously since it's not going to be produced in-house, is it going to be like most of the other talk channels with time-delayed spliced-back-to-back talk shows or will it be a relay channel like EWTN?

Not sure. I am hoping that they have a variety of subjects (not politics) that are family friendly. They could have all kinds of shows including entertainment and advice shows. You could have someone like Dave Ramsey on, he is a Christian and his show needs a home, if they don’t move it to the new Advice channel. I just think that it all doesn't have to be about Christian theology.

I wonder if they will have the usual flair for Christian talk radio, such as Chuck Swindoll, Charles Stanley, Alistar Begg, James Dobson, James Kennedy, etc.

Aren't most of these people more political than religious? The TV station where I work used to carry Charles Stanley's program In Touch, just from setting up the tape I heard him and his son say some things that were so facist and anti-semetic that even Hitler would never have gone that far.

Thats bolonga...Real Christians love Jews, they are like our brothers, we share half of the Bible. As for the station I dont know who will be on. I wouldnt agree in saying these people are "political" because they are not associated with any party. They sometimes let politics be known but only on issues that the Bible is clear on, so in reality they are preaching the Bible. The Bible isnt "political" free. It addresses lots of political issues so if you are going to preach it, you will sound political.

I don't know about you but I grew up in Southern Baptist churches.
Jews were despised almost as much as Catholics.
As far as politics, you can take the Bible and spin it any way you want.
The current crop of millionaire preachers care more about politics and money than sharing God's love and caring for the poor.

Dude, I dont know what kind of church you grew up in. Not every church is really on the right track. Many work against what the Bible teaches and dont even know it. If anyone reads the Bible they can plainly see Jews are God's chosen people. Dont believe me? Just read the Old Testament. Jesus himself was a Jew.

As for todays "millionaire preachers", I think you are right about many of them. Many are in it for the money, absolutely no doubt in my mind. They will have their judgement. But Dobson for instance is not like that. He isnt a millionaire and doesnt strive to become one. He simply teaches the Bible. He believes that when the Bible says God loves every life that God really does love every life and therefore government should not give a woman the right to take a life of an unborn child away. Theres no "spin" there. Hes simply saying what the Bible teaches. "Thou shalt not Murder" means "thou shalt not murder." Now theres the debate on whether the unborn child is "alive." But even some pro-choicers have now admitted it is life. To believe the baby is not alive is ignorance. Now people may say Dobson gets too much into politics. Well really all he is doing is preaching the Bible. The Bible has politicis in it.

Can someone say post #200????

Default Chad, you funny

Salem Commuications has most of the people like Chuck Swindoll, Charles Stanley, Alistar Begg, James Dobson, James Kennedy.

Most of them are on XM. Maybe they'll have someone good.

I have to agree. Most of them are very political. I don't care for that. They just need to preach salvation.

Responding to other comments, yes I realize that a real Christian cannot be an anti-semite. It just seems that the radio and TV preachers tend to not be real Christians by this definition.

And this nice Jewish boy really detests the "chosen people" concept. I'm not sure if this was what was in the scriptures originally or if it was something that appeared as the result of a later translation.

Jews are Gods "chosen" people in that He made a covenant with Abraham that anyone who blesses Israel would be blessed and anyone who curses them would be cursed. And they are the "chosen" line of his Son Jesus Christ.

There are many miracles surrounding the Jewish race. I mean for thousands of years they were without a homeland and yet there are still 100% Jewish people. I mean America has only been here 200 years and you cant find a fully English person or fully Irish person. Our ancestors inter married. But after thousands of years with no homeland, the Jewish nation stayed in tact. And look at "I will bless those who bless you and curse those who curse you." Take Hitler...He cursed them and he was defeated. Look at America...we blessed them and we have been very blessed.

And diverting donations sent in to fly people out of Rwanda to his diamond mine business, and supporting murderous African dictator Charles Taylor. But I'm sure he got God's OK on this.

And as for Jews, Sirius claims it will appeal to Messianic Jews. So if you are in the .2% of Jewish population that believes in Jesus, Sirius will not disappoint!

Well I see how I goofed in my posts...but it gave everyone a laugh

Let me clarify...theres a difference between killing an innocent person and killing a bloodless murderer. The innocent deserves life, the guilty murderer deserves death.

Let me make a point on this. If someone steals 100 dollars from you, what do they owe you? Obviously the answer is 100 dollars. If someone steals 100,000 dollars from you how much do they owe you? Once again it is obviously 100,000 dollars. But what if a person steals your life from you? What do they owe? 100 dollars? $1,000? $1,000,000? Or do they owe their life for what they have taken away? So yes I agree with our government using the death penalty and would support our government assassinating any cold blooded dictator, if that is the best option for America.

If I were you guys I'b be careful about badmouthing Pat Robertson. Look at what happened to the last guy he asked God to smite.



Just sayin'...
