A: No radio program and no television program — and I don’t care whose it is — is a substitute for you attending your local Bible church. Absolutely it would be best if all of us went off the air (both radio and television) if it’s keeping a large segment of our population from going to a local church. If you have a local Bible church, go to it! Don’t let my program or anyone else’s be a substitute for your participation in a worship service and a Bible teaching service. Remember that the writer to the Hebrews says, “Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching” (Hebrews 10:25
). Christian people and faithful listeners to our programs really ought to go to church. There’s no substitute for that at all.
