You Are Forgiven! These words—and the fact they describe—are at the very heart of the Christian faith.
Sadly, though, far too many representatives of Christianity would have you believe the heart of the faith is described by words like “You can do better!”, or “What would Jesus do?”, or even “God helps those who help themselves!”
You Are Forgiven! radio is here to bring the truth of Christ’s forgiveness for you into clearer focus. The cacophony of information these days—especially “Christian” information—offers you a myriad of tips, techniques and checklists, all purporting to help you become a better Christian, or to show you how you can get closer to God, or even how to make yourself acceptable to God.
What’s wrong with that? One big thing: Checklists don’t provide the power to do what they demand, and we ultimately fail. To paraphrase the great Christian Reformer, Martin Luther, checklists say “do this,” and it is never done. Good news—the Christian message—says “believe this,” and it is already done. You Are Forgiven! radio is here to proclaim what’s already been done for you. Believe it!
So, yes, You Are Forgiven! radio hopes to be a different sound amidst the noise. Our goal is to proclaim the genuine good news—that’s what “Gospel” means—of Christ’s forgiveness for you. We do not offer you better tips, techniques or checklists. Instead, You Are Forgiven!radio is sermons by faithful pastors who will clearly show how you cannot be forgiven by your own efforts, no matter how well you do on your homework, your checklist of tasks. But they will also show how you are actually and already forgiven because Jesus has done all that is needed, for you!
