Dateline: 25 November 2013
I’ve been hooked up to Sirius satellite radio for five years. I got it so I would have a variety of listening options as I worked in my workshop or Planet Whizbang mail-order packing room. I mostly listened to Fox news, the Patriot channel and NPR. Occasionally I would listen to BBC radio.
I don’t have cable television, and have not watched television for many years. I know virtually nothing about any Hollywood personality or pop singer who has come along in the past 10 to 15 years. They mean nothing to me.
The solutions they offer begin with the fear of God, and the recognition that sin is the fundamental problem of mankind. God’s law/word, as found in the Bible is looked to as the blueprint for personal and cultural reformation. This reformation begins with individual Christians and Christian families who get a vision for thinking and living that is contra mundum, which means against the world (see Romans 12:2).
I often use the term, "contra-industrial" to define my writings on this blog. Contra industrial and contra mundum are pretty much the exact same thing in my Christian-agrarian mind.
When Kevin and Dave talk, they sound like Christian-agrarians to me. They encourage their listeners to not be dependent on government handout-schemes, government schooling-schemes, government medical-schemes, and political promises. They say that Christians should provide for their own needs and the needs of their families apart from government. They promote the biblical concept of self-government and personal responsibility. They identify cities as ungodly places. They encourage entrepreneurship and the development of family economies. They think multi-generationally. They refuse to bow to the cultural demands of people who would redefine marriage and the family as something totally contrary to what God designed it to be.
As the economic and social structures of our industrialized, Babylonian world system are crumbling, Kevin and Dave offer a vision to their Christian listeners of "islands of freedom" where God-fearing families live lives of obedience, wisdom, and Biblical responsibility, set apart to God, for His glory.
When I listen to Generations radio I am presented with ideas and biblical worldview opinions that I never hear from the mainstream media and, frankly, that I rarely hear discussed in church.
I encourage those of you who read this blog, and are believers in Jesus Christ, to listen to the daily Generations Radio internet broadcasts. There is certainly nothing like it on the mainstream media, and I've yet to find a more insightful and biblically pertinent program anywhere else on the internet.
