Journalists as Voice of the Voiceless

Message by Pastor David Odunayo at the April, 2018 fellowship

Every Christian journalist in a voice sent forth by God to be a voice of the voiceless majority.

Just like John the Baptist was the voice sent by God in the wilderness, every Christian journalist is God’s voice sent forth to represent the one whose voice can’t be heard in the high places.

In Gen. 40 : 14, Joseph said to Pharaoh’s chief cup bearer after interpreting his dream to him “But when all goes well with you, remember me and show kindness by mentioning me to Pharaoh and get me out of this prison”.

Many people are in the prison of life and they need a Pharaoh to come out.

The problem is Pharaoh need to be told about them. Pharaoh doesn’t seem to know that they are there or exist. And unfortunately, they cannot get to Pharaoh themselves.

A Christian journalist can be that link to Pharaoh. He can tell Pharaoh about the plight of the prisoner and he should to fulfill God’s purpose for him.

The Christian journalist can be the voice of the voiceless to the high and mighty in position of power. You go and tell Pharaoh so the world about the Joseph usually suffer in the prison.

If you fail to do it, you will be judged by God and who knows  if it is for this purpose he called you into journalism profession as such time on this.
