WHY We're USING T.V. -Andrew Strom. When I was in Puerto Rico recently I felt led to take the plunge and sign up for a TV show that will be shown on Prime Time all over Central and South America. I felt it was something I had to do. The show is to be called "John the Baptist TV". Last year when I got back from Uganda I was literally crying out to the Lord about the state of things in the poorer nations - where Prosperity gospels are literally destroying the church. All I could do was weep and tell God, "Things are so bad, there's nothing we can do. It's too big. It's too far gone. There's nothing..." And I felt God telling me very clearly that I had to use "Media". It was the only way forward. And it had to be done with great priority. It is now almost ten years since I last used TV. I used to direct and produce to quite a high level in New Zealand, but I have left it alone in recent years. I clearly felt from the Lord that I COULD NOT leave it alone any longer. We need to make an all-out assault on the falsehoods that are invading and destroying the church. They must be replaced with TRUTH. -The true gospel in all its fullness. And so I have been looking out for the ways in which God might have me use Media - especially in the poorer nations. Africa and South America are clearly the most affected. The need is URGENT. After all, why should it only be the awful "big-money" guys who end up dominating Christian TV? Should we just let them rule the airwaves and thereby rule what is being spoken to the church? Should they just be left alone to do this? Are we not called to fight for Truth? And should we not do so in a way where the people actually get to hear it? The show is scheduled to air every Thursday night right across Latin America, starting on May 20th. Is it costing money? Yes - certainly! But not an absolute "fortune". I simply cannot help sensing it is something we HAVE to do. And so I am going to be frantically busy over the next month getting the first shows ready. They will be dubbed into Spanish, but we also aim to have an English version airing each week on Ustream and Youtube - so you can watch them too! Obviously, this is going to greatly affect our whole ministry and our entire future. Please pray for us, my friends.
