THE MEXICAN STATE-CARTEL NEXUS
Discussed by Joshua Trevino

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Has there been an increase in criminal activity, especially violence, used by Mexican drug cartels over the past 50 years?

Has the Mexican government demonstrated a mixed history of dealing with the cartels, alternating between nonchalance, inefficiency, and even collusion?

The United States has invested money and manpower to help the Mexican government fight and eliminate the cartels and their drug trade. Has the mutual cooperation been dependent on the inclination of the administrations in power? Joe Treviño believes that the problem will only get worse as the Biden Administration blatantly ignores the problem at the border.

Is there evidence of bribes received by high-ranking Mexican government officials from drug cartel members?

Was one Mexican official charged with taking $450,000 per MONTH in bribes from drug cartels?

Do the actions and inactions of the Mexican government place US citizens at risk? Joe Treviño uses the Fentanyl crisis as one example and reveals that Texas border county Sheriffs are subcontracting out their offices to drug cartels! He says: “What is happening in Mexico is a warning to the rest of us… It is imperative for us is to act.”

Are Mexican gangs prevalent in nearly every city in Texas?

What must We the People demand of our State and Federal Governments? Joe Treviño believes the number one priority of our government right now should be securing the border.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Why do many illegal immigrants come to the United States of America? Do they know that the US border is completely wide open? Do they know that the Biden Administration will not deport them?

Why are Hispanic Americans (especially those who were born in America or came to America legally) changing their voting behavior? Matt Carpenter says, “They don’t want to replicate Latin America government”, explaining that many of their families fled Communist/Socialist countries to live in America and they see the current Administration making the same mistakes their home countries made.

What are some of the statistics from across the country concerning the vote-swings in recent elections?

What are the main issues Hispanic voters are focused on? In addition to border security, Joe Treviño mentions the economy, crime, public education, and the transgender agenda.

Will Hispanics be the backbone of saving America from turning to a Socialist/Communist stronghold?

How should Republicans be reaching out to the Hispanic community? Joe Treviño shares how one woman he talked to said: “We’re just like you. Just talk to us.”



PROTECTING THE SECOND AMENDMENT FROM BIDEN’S EXTREME WISHES
Discussed by Cam Edwards
with Author

Cam Edwards is the spokesperson for the Second Amendment Foundation. He is also the Editor of Bearing Arms and hosts the popular podcast Cam & Company focusing on Second Amendment news and information.

Today, Cam discusses whether or not Americans want stricter gun control laws.

Questions/Issues Discussed
:

Do Americans want more gun control laws? Cam discusses a recent Rasmussen poll. Why do some Americans favor more gun control laws? Can we “ban our way to safety”?

According to the Rasmussen poll, many Americans do want current gun laws enforced more vigorously. Would this help? Cam believes that it would definitely help and breaks down which laws need to be tweaked first. He says: “What we’re seeing right now is that criminals feel emboldened because they think they can get away with these crimes. And sadly, in many cases, they are getting away with murder.”

How high does gun control rank on voters’ wish list of priorities they want Biden to address? Guess what?!? It’s on the bottom of the list. Sorry, Biden!

Are Americans who defend their 2nd Amendment Rights winning the debate?



JONAH
Discussed by Mark Lanier
with Biblical Literacy (www.Biblical-Literacy.com)

Questions/Issues Discussed:

What was your first job? Mark reminisces about the first few jobs he had, including his first preaching “gig” when kept calling Jonah “Noah” in his sermon and when he met the head of a law firm he worked for in an elevator. This sets the stage for his lesson on Jonah, which he will really dive into tomorrow.

HOW GOD SEES SEX
Discussed by Pastor Jarrett Stephens
with Champion Forest Baptist Church (www.ChampionForest.org)

Day 1

Erwin Lutzer wrote in his book,We Will Not Be Silenced”:  “The cellphone in a teenager’s hand is doing more to shape their worldview than one hour of Sunday School or the admonitions of parents. We are failing to pass our faith on to the next generation because they are captives to the culture, social media, their peers, and the indoctrination by the public schools. Parents clothe their children, feed them, and send them to school, but the hearts of their kids are being stolen and molded by a world that many of us don’t understand.”

Sex is a touchy subject. Pastor Jarrett Stephens uses this sermon to passionately and compassionately explain how God sees sex and why Christians must follow His commands on the issue, not the world’s interpretation.

Scripture Passage: 1 Corinthians 6:12-20

Check out his sermon notes here.

If you have questions about a sermon, please contact Champion Forest at questions@cfbc.org

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Why does Pastor Jarrett feel the topic of sex, especially sexual identification, is such an important topic? His friend and fellow pastor, Gregg Matte from Houston’s First, recently said: “We have gone in our culture concerning these issues from toleration to affirmation to celebration. And if you don’t, you receive condemnation.”

Why should Christians follow a Biblical Worldview in ALL things? Why should Christians always strive to follow God’s Truth, not the world’s “truth”? Pastor Jarrett offers some examples if “absolute truths” – there is no negotiation. He says: “Truth is truth. It’s narrow and it’s absolute.”

If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior, text the word JESUS to 77069 and a pastor or counselor from CFBC will call you back.
