Where Did Those Eleven Years Go?

WHI 1996 3.JPG










One of the elders at Christ Reformed Church brought some old pictures from a long ago White Horse Inn taping.  The pictures were taken back in 1996 when we still did a live broadcast every Sunday evening @ 9:00 PM from the studios of KKLA in Glendale. 

The first picture is yours truly with everybody's favorite Lutheran theologian, Dr. Rod Rosenbladt.  We've both grayed a bit over the years.  I still have my copy of Berkhof and Rod his copy of J. T. Mueller.

The picture below is of our fearless leader, Michael Horton, while still a youth!

The third picture was taken during a broadcast, with Ken Jones (apparently) sitting in for me, and our producer, Shane Rosenthal, was watching it all from the engineer's booth.  

WHI 1996 6.JPGThose were truly good days.  We would gather at Michael's home in Anaheim, and then make the hour trek to Glendale.  Rod kept us entertained on the way.  We'd tape the show, and then return to Michael's for beer and pizza and to discuss and debate into the wee hours of the morning.  But the best part was tormenting Rod by making him watch TBN.

And here we are eleven years later and still going strong!  Many thanks to all of you who have listened and supported us through the years!

Many of us wouldn't be the same with the White Horse Inn. I praise God for it!

Thanks for your work with WHI. My wife and I are working through your Romans Revolution series and being blessed by every episode.

What are your recording days like now?
Aren't you glad that you have even more "christian" TV stations to torment with?

And yes, even though I am only a year into WHI, I am very thankful for it!

I truly enjoy the ministry that the White Horse Inn has provided. I've learned a lot. Thanks for all the hardwork and dedication you all put forth.
And wow...I didn't even recognize Mike Horton from that picture. He spoke this fall at the Emerging Church Conference at my school, WTS.

Anyway, thanks for the blessing of WHI.

I, as well, appreciate the ministry of WHI. I really am thankful that it is broadcast over the internet so I can continue listening while outside the country (which is most of the time).

Also, I became a listener after reading "A Case for Amillennialism". I found the WHI site through this site.

Thank you for your biblically based ministry.

It would only be two years later (1998) that I would happen to leave my miserable "Gen X" church (in Los Alamitos, CA) service at around 9pm and flip on KKLA and hear you guys laying the reformed hammer down on all the horrible stuff I would have just heard during the "sermon" at my church that evening.

The eventual joy and peace I would come to find in confessionalism and reformed doctrines was in direct correlation to having stumbled upon WHI; thank GOD.

I also want to thank you guys for the White Horse. Reading "Putting Amazing Back Into Grace" listening to the WHI and reading Modern Reformation have literally been life-changing and faith-saving for me.

My wife and I grew up in Reformed Churches and yet when we started listening to WHI and reading Mod Ref, we were blown away! Not only do I now get to sit under the preaching of one of the hosts week in and week out (KR), I get to sit in lectures with another host week in and week out (MH)! What a blessing!

Ahhh freedom - glorious freedom!!!

One of the big things that attracted me to this show was the level of realism the hosts displayed. It's like, after hearing Horton and everyone talk the way they did about some of the silliness in the evangelical world at the time, it was okay for me to be human again. It was ok to be me and still be a Christian. It was ok to be a fallen human again resting in Grace. I could breathe again.

WHI and Modern Ref were instrumental in my "conversion" to Reformed Theology. God's blessings on all four hosts who have faithfully explained the doctrines of grace and charitably explained their (the hosts) different viewpoints on issues like the sacraments and worship. You gentlemen show that Reformation teaching does not divide so much as it unites.
May you have many more years to come!

Praise God for White Horse Inn who keeps bringing helpful topics like Romans Revelation and wacky evangelical trends. WHI helped me to see why I was so unhappy with most churches. I now sit under Pastor Kim and have never been the same.
I can enjoy freedom in Christ and not be judged for it. Who would of thought.

Thanks for instructing me over the years on the WHI. .
I still recall hearing a WHI broadcast where a guy called in and said, "Is this the program with the three saved guys and the Lutheran?" [hilarious laughter].

Or how about the time the guy couldn't name more than a couple of the Ten Commandments so he backed out cowardly saying, "I might not know them, but I sure obey them." Or the same program where the young woman could name only a couple of the Ten and then said, "God, what a quiz." She couldn't think of a single commandment in how we are to regard God, but she took his name in vain trying!!

Or the time Jerry Falwell came right out and said, "Charles Finney is a hero of mine."

I'd love to hear the old JI Packer interview again. At the time, I was sitting on the edge of my seat anticipating every word. That was also the case with a couple of D A Carson interviews a couple of years ago.

Thanks for WHI, MR and the blog.

what can i say? i have been receiving WHI ever since they were on cassette tapes...let's see, about 12 years now. keep going.

tyler, it's like listening to myself that many years ago when you post!

February 15, 2007 | Unregistered Commenterzrim
We love you guys...may God bless you with many more years on the air.

I used to listen to you guys back in '97 & '98 on a Washington, DC station, which eventually dropped your show. I called them and gave them a fit for that action! I taped so many of your shows on cassettes, which I still have. I listen to you on the net when I can. I came from a Pentecostal background years ago. The WHI really helped my understanding of God's word and the freedom there is in Christ. Thanks for your work and faithfulness in this ministry.
I remember the show when you interviewed many "Christian" college students who thought, "God helps those who help themselves" was somewhere in the Bible!

Amen to all the above. The programs on "The Gospel for Christians" and "Guilt, Grace and Gratitude" played a big role in our leaving a church for the first time for a reason other than moving--we realized we weren't being fed the "proper diet" of Christ and Him crucified! May God continue to bless your work.

zrim, that's awesome! Who would have thought there was such joy to be found in knowing what you believe and why you believe it?!
February 15, 2007 | Unregistered CommenterTyler
yeah. and at the risk of sounding unduly cynical, it's also good to know what you reject and why you reject it! ain't orthodoxy grand?
