Radio is Dead...Again (Malachi 3:6)

When television arrived on the scene in the latter half of the 20th century, the pundits predicted the death of radio. When the internet arrived in the mid 1990’s, other pundits declared radio’s obituary. Now, in the first half of the 21st century, broadcast radio is still here and more popular than ever.

Even radio has evolved, beginning with shortwave, progressing to AM and FM stations and now with HD radio and satellite radio. But the fundamental programming is still the same. Instead of killing it, the internet has facilitated the access of radio to a wider and larger audience than ever before. Radio fulfills a vital need for many of us who are at work, commuting, or simply enjoying rest time. Just because something is old, doesn’t mean it is not relevant or obsolete.

For I am the Lord, I do not change...
Malachi 3:6

When I share the Gospel with seekers and non-believers, the occasional reply is, “That stuff is old, it doesn’t apply to us today.” But God’s Word stands forever because truth does not change. And God is the Creator, Sustainer, and Provider of Truth.

What principle of the Bible does not apply to your life or the world today? Relationships, duties to family, caring for the needy...all of these are outlined in the Bible. But most importantly, the Bible reveals who God really is. And it only through the revelation in His Son, Jesus Christ, do we see the most complete picture of God.

The Bible is old but the message is unchanging and for today.

Love and respect the Lord; seek His will in your life.
