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.
- The Stream at stream.org. 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.
- Todd Starnes’s blog at toddstarnes.com. He’s with Fox News.
- “The Thinking Christian” by blogger and apologist Tom Gilson at thinkingchristian.net. This 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.
- “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.
- Focus on the Family’s Citizen magazine. We’ve had a subscription for over 20 years.
- Christianity Today. It sometimes covers political or cultural issues.
- 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.
