My Most Controversial Christian Radio Interview

204 comments

Dear friends,

I had a very unexpected radio interview a few days ago that will likely spark a little controversy. I’d love for you to tell me what you think in the comments area! Here’s how it went down…

I’ve been doing a lot of radio interviews since the release of my book, When God Spoke to Me. Because I’ve been doing so many, I stopped doing research on the people interviewing me. Usually, when someone asks to interview me, I check out their website, see what type of program they have, see where they’re coming from, etc. For whatever reason, I completely stopped doing that.

For example, when I had my interview with Ilanya a few weeks ago, I had no idea who she was until a few minutes before the interview when my wife told me that she used to be a regular guest on Oprah back in the 90s! A few days ago when I did my most recent interview, I had no idea who Don Parker was, what he believed, what his program was about, or anything else. I just figured it was going to be like all the others.

Well, it wasn’t. Don was actually a very good sport, but I don’t think he appreciated what I had to say, and rightly so given where he was coming from. I won’t give away too much, but suffice it to say, I don’t think his audience liked me very much.

One final thing before you click the link below to listen to it…

One of the core tenants that we teach is the idea that God speaks to us where we are. As a result, I try to join people where they are when I speak to them. I try to use their vocabulary. I try to say things in ways that make sense to them. I try to join with them in their own reality. At the same time, I try to bring my truth to them in ways they can understand. In this particular interview, I definitely used vocabulary that I had never used before, and I said things that I would normally never say. I wasn’t lying or being untrue to Don or myself. I was simply trying to speak with Don and his listeners in ways they might be able to hear me.

By the way, I’d love to hear what you think of the interview. Please don’t be bashful in sharing your thoughts and opinions below in the comments area.
