Think Twice before Calling into Religious Talk Radio
Pray and seek God's wisdom before confronting a false teacher on Talk Radio. Note: Although addressing call in programs, this also applies to any verbal and even written argument against a false teacher.
Unfortunately, I experienced this recently with a call in to a nationally syndicated radio station promoting false teaching in scripture. The radio host took my challenge and twisted it into a STRAWMAN. He then proceeded with a 10 minute rant to make it look like I was pulling out heretical doctrine that had nothing to do with scripture. In other words he got my original argument which was soundly found on scripture and turned it as far fetched heretical doctrine not even related to scripture. And of course, I was not given an opportunity to respond.
In the end the caller made my challenge into a strawman to super reinforce his heretical and blasphemous teachings. My intention to rebuke him publicly backfired completely. I felt afterward that I had done more harm than good. But God knows there may have been a listener in the audience who heard what had happened and started to actually read the Bible for themselves and start asking questions.
Let's be honest. In today's apostate age of false teaching, most Religious Radio Talk Shows are heretical and serve as nothing more than a Propaganda STRAWMAN.
an intentionally misrepresented proposition that is set up because it is easier to defeat than an opponent's real argument.
Here's how the Talk Show call in scam works.
An informed caller calls in with the purpose of correcting or questioning the show hosts content. The Call Host like all good snake oil salesmen never give the caller an opportunity to debate. They quickly employ the following strategy:
LISTEN! SYNTHESIZE! REFRAME!
Listen: The call in host listens carefully even repeats the callers question or concern.
Synthesize: The call in host literally processes the information given by the caller and adds information in light of their own bias without being challenged as would normally be in an open debate guidelines. Simplified the call host muddies the water in a myriad of ways.
Frame. Fashion anew.. Taking raw information from the caller's question or concern and adding their own synthesized data to fashion an entirely unique reframed question or concern that supports the call host.
Remember that the job of the Call host is to give a platform to the differences but to ensure that no singular perspective is promoted as ‘right’ OTHER THAN THE CALL HOST'S PERSPECTIVE...
If the caller tries to correct or debate, a skilled talk host immediately employs some strategy similar to the Left Brain questioning tactic, an extremely effective way to bring the caller back to the reframed question/concern, and then the host proudly answers the STRAWMAN. At this point the host says, " okay thank you. Let's get to our next call..."

These things speak,and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee. Titus 2: 15 . Note: I love Israel and the Jews. I am a born again Christian who truly believes the Jews are God's chosen people and abhor replacement theology. For the past year I've been closely following Amir TSARFATI on his BEHOLD ISRAEL YouTube channel. I don't use Facebook, was basically thrown off about 8 years ago for posting content that spread hate (simply posted photos of Islamic thugs murdering innocent civilians) . I also don't use Twitter. Left after 10 years, nearly 10,000 followers, when new rules blocked my 1st amendment rights of free speech. I've been extremely impressed with Amir TSARFATI. I've been thrilled by his ministry. He shares my conservative views, especially achieving peace through strength and not through appeasement. He is very intelligent, articulate, handsome, courageous, charismatic, conservative, outspoken, fairly sound
Israeli News Live REBUKE Steven Ben Nun and his wife Jana In accordance with 2 Timothy 2:4, 4:2-4, Titus 1:11-16, 2:15; Ephesians 5:11; 2 Timothy 4:15, and Galatians 1:8,9 I rebuke Steven Ben-Nun and his wife Jana for misuse of scripture to misrepresent and twist the truth. For the past few years Steven has come out as an anti Zionist and yet has blatantly sided with the Russians and Syrians, making the USA and Israel out as the bad guys. The truth be told, both sides and all sides are under the global luciferion elite. By the fact that Steven does not point this out makes him a Jew selling out his own people by stating that the Golan needs to be given back to Syria and a Russian tool if not an actual Russian agent. We are pleased that Steve Ben-Nun and his wife Jana have woke up and walked away from Zionism. Please read link distinguishing Zionism from true biblical love of Israel and the Israeli people which we as Christians believe. LINK https://thirdheaventraveler.blogspot
Dear Dr. Eugene Kim, References: a. Dr. Gene Kim video serving God https://youtu.be/LV6j0rB0yos See his comments to Andrew Sheets b. Dr. Gene Kim Teaching video on Trinity c.

Most of your teaching is rock solid. But these glaring issues addressed below must be addressed. BBC International Dear Dr. Eugene Kim, Thank you Sir for responding to my comment (reference a) It’s obvious by your response you haven’t read the blog I sent you about why Brick and Mortar Buildings called churches are not biblical. Most of what you sent me in your response by way of your video teaching is addressed in the blog. As far as using Romans 13:1-7 to defend 501C3 and your building - I address below. After careful consideration - I have to write this as a testimony as a witness submitted as Ambassador for The
