Radiant Light Broadcasting (RLB) exists to inspire viewers to become impassioned doers. Our purpose is to engage, educate, equip and empower viewers to love God and love their neighbors through the use of media. At RLB we are guided by the words of Jesus Christ to let our light shine:
[Matthew 5:14-16 KJV] 14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid. 15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. 16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
Increasingly, our media culture is playing a key role in shaping our worldview. We are a culture saturated with powerful media images in movies, television, commercials and music. What we watch, listen to and read, impacts the way we think. Consistently consuming entertainment with false ideas will inevitably distort our view of the world.
In 2009 the Barna Research Group determined that only 4 percent of Americans have a “biblical” worldview. When George Barna, who has researched cultural trends and the Christian Church since 1984, looked at the “born-again” believers in America, the results were a dismal 9 percent.
Barna’s survey also connected an individual’s worldview with his or her moral beliefs and actions. Barna says, “Although most people own a Bible and know some of its content, our research found that most Americans have little idea how to integrate core biblical principles to form a unified and meaningful response to the challenges and opportunities of life.”
Veteran broadcaster Edward R. Murrow delivered his famous “wires and lights in a box” speech before an audience of his peers on October 15, 1958. It was here that he insightfully declared the following about the power of television:
“This instrument can teach, it can illuminate; yes, and even it can inspire. But it can do so only to the extent that humans are determined to use it to those ends. Otherwise, it's nothing but wires and lights in a box. There is a great and perhaps decisive battle to be fought against ignorance, intolerance and indifference. This weapon of television could be useful.”
RLB has always been determined to teach, illuminate, and inspire viewers towards a biblical worldview. Please pray with us that God will continue to utilize RLB as a powerful weapon to advance His worldview in our homes, our cities, and our world. Please consider before God how you could further partner with God and with RLB in this ministry.
