Why would we choose a name that is so…well, wretched?

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.

    I just received the Judge Not book and began reading immediately. When I saw your plug for Starbucks on the very first page my heart sank. No one more openly and loudly supports abortion than they do. Truly my heart hurts that you would both go there and advertise for them. I am still going to read the book, but now I have to wonder about Todds sincerity. Truly I just hurt right now.

    • The truth is that to live in this world without supporting any organization that somehow supports unbiblical things like abortion, you would have to live off the grid and produce everything you need for life and health on your own. That’s just the way it is. Starbucks is no worse than a thousand others.
