Member Voices: Dr. Erwin Lutzer, The Moody Church

Erwin LutzerAre you worried about how future public policy will impact your freedom to engage in your work in Christian media? Do you wonder whether your ministry will survive future court decisions and cultural attacks?

Dr. Erwin Lutzer, Pastor Emeritus of The Moody Church, faces these worries as well. However, he takes comfort in knowing that he is part of an organization that has defended the very existence of religious broadcasting since its inception.

“I am pleased to say that the National Religious Broadcasters held its Constitutional Convention at The Moody Church in 1944,” Lutzer says, referring to the birth of NRB, which was formed to protect Christian broadcasters’ access to the airwaves in an attack against their Constitutional right of freedom of speech.

In a time when adherence to biblical truth is seen as a demonstration of hate, NRB members can make their voices heard through NRB’s advocacy for their freedom to share the Gospel via all forms of electronic media before the FCC, Congress, the White House, federal agencies, and the courts.

Lutzer, who is also a member of the NRB Board of Directors, explains, “Each year our Convention gathers together thousands of believers from around the world, sharing ideas on how to be more effective in spreading the Gospel through all forms of technology. Most critically, however, we are brought up-to-date on the new challenges we face as we continue to fight for our freedoms at every level.”

After nearly 75 years, NRB continues to fulfill its ongoing mission of advancing biblical truth, promoting media excellence, and defending free speech – something Lutzer can personally attest to.

“As a longtime member, I am glad to report that this organization has fought and won many battles for us as evangelicals,” he declares. “The NRB is on the front lines in Washington, clearing a path for all who are committed to sharing the Gospel through as many different methods as possible.”
