If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?  Ps. 11:3

May 2004

Dear friend of KHCS,

Why do you need a Biblical world-view?

Joy 92-FM seeks to follow in the footsteps of leaders such as Ravi Zacharias, Charles Colson, and the late Francis Schaeffer, to present a world-view solidly based in Scripture, not in faulty man-made ideas.

One of the many worldly world-views Christians must contend with is Socialism/Marxism.  This Socialist/Communist/Marxist ideology has been around for over 150 years.  And it’s adherents believe in it just as strongly as  in any other religion.  And it really is a religion!

The pillars of this dogma include:

Materialism . . . opposition to Christianity . . . public education . . . teaching only evolution in schools . . . public ownership of property . . . the abolition of the traditional family . . . “free love” . . . free access to abortion.

Does any of this sound familiar?  The expression, “free love” didn’t originate with hippies in Haight-Ashbury in the 1960’s, but over a century ago as part of the Socialist/Marxist goal of abolishing monogamous relationships. 

As radical Swedish feminist Barbro Backberger said, “[M]arriage . . . must be abolished, the children should be supported by the state and cared for and/or raised collectively. . .”   “It takes a village” right?  Wrong!

Likewise, the push for legalized abortion is also nothing new.  Take a look at this quotation from the Socialist newspaper The Call, Sept. 4, 1910:

“. . . it is not pleasant for a woman . . . to feel that there is a little life growing in her that she must kill.  But eventually I believe we shall become so enlightened that these unfortunate women will need only to go to a public hospital and say, ‘I have become pregnant by accident and should like to have an operation’ in order to get such an operation performed with every precaution and safeguard.”  Doesn’t that read like today’s newspaper?

Many ministries strive to uphold the traditional family, stop abortion and preserve our Christian liberties.  But if we don’t recognize the ideology behind those who are pushing for unlimited abortion, the destruction of marriage and the traditional family, and the abolition of public Christian expression we are just swatting at mosquitoes when we need to drain the swamp!  And this ideology is Marxist Socialism, though its adherents call it “progressive.” 

As Christians, we need to counter this Marxist propaganda blitz by boldly proclaiming the only world-view that can change hearts and lives the Gospel of Jesus Christ! 

I want to encourage you to do your part in bringing the Gospel to your friends, neighbors, co-workers and acquaintances. 

And I hope you are also inviting others to tune to 91.7FM.  KHCS brings you Information and Inspiration from a Biblical world view so that you can be confident in the faith that has been entrusted to the saints entrusted to you!

But we now face a monumental challenge in 2004.  One which will determine if KHCS will continue to exist.  You see, after being in the same studio location for almost twelve years, we are now being forced to move. We need to be up and running in the new studio before July 1.

Moving to a suitable new studio location is not cheap, or easy.  Especially, staying on the air with a minimum of interruption during this relocation will require the expenditure of close to $50,000. 

Your generous, tax-deductible contributions to KHCS enable us to keep on bringing you inspiring, God-honoring programming, 24 hours a day.  Please make the decision that you will faithfully share with us in this ministry so that we may remain on the air to serve you in the future.

In His joy!
