ICELANDIC CHRISTIAN MEDIA PIONEER DISCUSSES THE SPIRITUAL IMPACT OF THEIR NATIONAL FINANCIAL COLLAPSE, AND ITS FOREBODING FOR AMERICA, ON THE 12 - 16 OCTOBER 09 “FUTURE QUAKE” RADIO PROGRAMS
Nashville, TN – American missionary and pioneer of the Icelandic Christian media community, “Lindin Media” Founder Mike Fitzgerald (www.lindin.is) discusses the recent nationwide devastating financial crisis experienced by the nation of Iceland, and the resultant spiritual impacts that may reveal the imminent destiny of America and its society, with host “Doctor Future” and co-host Tom Bionic, airing daily during the week of 12 October on the “Future Quake” program, broadcast on the Christian talk radio station WENO, 760 AM in Nashville, TN (and archived at http://www.futurequake.com). Mike Fitzgerald, raised in the United States but with dual American/Icelandic heritage and lineage, years ago accepted the call to pastor churches in Iceland, and then was called by the Lord to establish a significant Christian mass media ministry for Iceland, anchored by an eventual network of Christian-content radio stations. Through the working of God within this expanding ministry, the culture of Iceland has transformed from one generally relatively aloof of personal, experiencial Christianity while under the influence of historic, mainline Protestantism, to a vibrant and growing evangelical culture that is engaging in the daily lives of typical Icelanders, largely influenced by the growth of Christian radio and television networks under the community leadership of Lindin. These ministries have even expanded into other forms of communication and publishing, such as adventure and “superhero” comic books that are now establishing Christian values and principles in their youth. This discussion includes the story behind Lindin's involvement in God's work in establishing Christian radio in the nearby Faroe Islands, which not only has established Christian radio as a strong influence in almost all their citizens, but may also become the fortification by which Christian radio may be broadcast into the darkness of the EU-controlled European mainland. The bulk of the discussion focuses on the severe banker-based financial crisis recently experienced by Iceland, where overnight the citizens of Iceland changed from the wealthiest people on Earth, to one of the poorest, with insanely high inflation, joblessness and shortages of basic supplies and staples. This crisis, which has created widespread psychological and domestic family crises, foretells the scenario that the United States and other developed nations are soon to experience, and whom could learn well from Iceland's trevails and response. However, these challenging circumstances have provided an opportunity for Iceland's Christian community, united through national grass-roots representatives such as Lindin Media, to provide guidance and spiritual support to individual citizens, and directly to the country's leadership at this time of need. This unprecedented historic event thus provides for a fascinating and stirring discussion of God's work.
