Perhaps the most famous hymn in Christendom is John Newton’s “Amazing Grace.”
Virtually everyone knows the lyrics to this amazing praise song.
“Amazing grace, how sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me.”
That is why we chose the name “Wretched.”
Until a man or woman recognizes that they are indeed wretched, they cannot appreciate the cross.
By calling the show “Wretched”, it is a constant reminder that we all need a Savior.
It also ensures that the program stays focused on what is most important, the Gospel.
We also like to think the title will actually help people witness to others.
“Have you ever listened to “Wretched Radio?”
“Why do they call it “Wretched Radio?”
“Well, the Bible says that we all sin and fall short of the glory of God…”
Be assured, we did not choose this title to be silly, crass or outlandish.
We chose it because it is a word that is Biblical (Paul called himself a wretched man, Rom.7:24 ), and it keeps the main thing the main thing.
