Christian Radio

radio.jpgChristian radio has been a huge part of my spiritual growth. When a station switched from a Rock format to Christian, I inexplicably started listening. Until then I may have thought about God some on Sunday morning, but not much at all during the week. I don’t remember what I listened to first, but over time I was listening to sermons, family shows like Family Life Today and educational programs like the Bible Answer Man.

A few years later, Kim discovered the local Christian music station, KSBJ. She did so because our girls were getting past the toddler phase and she had to lunge at the preset buttons when a curse word would fly. My stereotype about Contemporary Christian music was, “Boring!” But after listening for a while, I found a lot of artists I really liked. When the family is driving together we listen to KSBJ almost exclusively. The girls enjoy it as well.

My favorite stations (Houston)
Music – KSBJ – 89.3 FM
Talk / sermons / family shows – KKHT – 100.7 FM
Music / sermons / family shows – KAFR – 88.3FM

I’ll delve into the mysteries of this another time, but my observation is that over 80% of radio preachers (at least those on the stations I listen to) have sound, Bible based teachings, while over 80% of TV preachers teach some amount of false doctrines. So when in doubt, try Christian radio instead of TV.

Check out OnePlace.com for a sample of the many ministries you can listen to on local stations, online or via downloads or podcasts. More on that later.

My current favorite shows
Sermons: Walk in the Word and Grace to You have powerful, interesting Bible-based preaching (there are many great shows, but I only spend so much time in the car).

Family shows: Family Life Today and Focus on the Family

Other: Stand to Reason weekly show and daily Podcasts and the Bible Answer Man.

Do you listen to Christian radio? What are your favorite shows?

  1. I must agree that TV vs. Radio give the latter a better standing on sound doctrine. However, the secular music and talk stations still dominate my dial because the Christian genre has still not caught up in quality of product. Don’t get me wrong, there are many good Christian talk shows and musicians but they are few in a big melting pot of wannabes. There are also quite a few deplorable secular options. But the overall comparison still leaves secular stations in the lead by my estimation. The good news is that the market is still wide open for those trying to break in.
