Last month a friend at church commented how she was so fed up with news sources such as CNN and how she wished there were some conservative news sources. I informed her that they do exist.
A few days later I compiled a list of sources for her. Then I thought the list might be helpful to others. So, here it is. (updated January 28, 2021)
- Washington Watch by Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council. I listen to this podcast regularly. Tony speaks to senators, congresspeople, and others involved in our national government. Through this broadcast, you get the news from the horse’s mouth.
- The Stream. This digital Christian news magazine offers commentary on current events, cultural issues, and Christian life articles. Some of the authors also have their own blogs or ministries.
- The Epoch Times. This periodical sent a couple of same copies to my home in 2020. Many of the writers are from communist nations and speak to preserve freedom in America.
- The Daily Citizen (replaced the print Citizen magazine by Focus on the Family).
- The Thinking Christian by blogger and apologist Tom Gilson. He mostly covers apologetics but touches on culture as well. He also writes for The Stream.
- PragerU.com. It’s not Christian, and I don’t agree with everything the presenters say, but this politically conservative site offers five-minute videos on various political and social topics. Watching these videos is a quick way to get introduced to a subject. Google dislikes them so much that they pulled many of their videos off YouTube but can be found on the website.
- The Christian Post provides news from the Christian perspective and church news.
- The Daily Wire by Ben Shapiro.
- “Relationship Insights” with Carrie Abbott of The Legacy Institute. This 30-minute show airs on KCIS 630 AM, but I use the phone app to listen to the podcasts. You can also go to carrieabbott.com or thelegacyinstitute.com for the archives. Broadcasting from the Seattle area, Carrie covers various cultural and political topics with a focus on biblical relationships. Most of her shows are interviews of authors or ministry leaders. I found out about The Stream through her.
- Ravi Zacharias, theologian and apologist, has an app to access his material as well, or you can go directly to his ministry website, rzim.org. Although he’s an apologist, his messages are helpful in understanding our culture and how to engage it for the gospel.
- I also listen to conservative talk radio such as KTTH. Most aren’t Christian, and some of the hosts are rather snarky, but I glean some information and commentary about what is happening in politics today while driving around.
- AMAC Advantage published by the Association of Mature American Citizens, the secular conservative version of AARP.
- Imprimis, a free publication by Hillsdale College. Each issue contains solid conservative articles based on speeches given at the college. Hillsdale doesn’t accept any government funds. They also offer some free, online courses (not for credit) on topics such as the Constitution. I’ve been wanting to do that one, but I haven’t had the time.
- Decision Magazine by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (free) also publishes some political pieces.
- Focus on the Family addresses pro-life issues and cultural issues that affect families.
- Family Research Council makes a stand for religious freedom at the national level.
- Judicial Watch isn’t Christian, but it fights corruption in the government on both sides of the aisle.
