Current Show (November 17, 2017):


FIRST AMENDMENT VS. CAKE BAKERS
Discussed by Travis Weber
with Family Research Council (www.FRC.org)

If business owners do not want to participate in a particular wedding ceremony, should they have the right to say no?

For several years now, Christian business owners have been targeted by the LGBTQ community. Travis Weber is the director of the Center for Religious Liberty at the Family Research Council, where he focuses on legal and policy issues pertaining to religious freedom.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Does the First Amendment allow the government to force a business owner to violate his or her conscience and religious beliefs?

In other countries around the world, are ministers allowed to preach against homosexuality from the pulpit? HINT: Yes and no. Listen as Travis explains…

Should Jack Phillips, a cake artist and small business owner, be protected under the First Amendment?

If the government can force a Christian cake artist to work with a homosexual couple, can the government also force an atheist to supply contracting services to a church? Will this scenario ever happen?

Is Jack Phillips merely refraining from violating his conscience and religious beliefs?

Have anti-discrimination laws been expanded beyond their original purpose?

RUSSIAN “PROPAGANDA” IS STILL MAKING HEADLINES
Discussed by Rob Bluey
with The Heritage Foundation (www.Heritage.org)

Reports indicate that, although Russian entities paid to have political ads ran during the 2016 election, as few as .0004% of Americans even saw them. However, lawmakers are now using this information to reignite their attempt to regulate social media, stifling free speech.

New guest, Rob Bluey, says this is definitely not the road to take. Rob is representing The Heritage Foundation today and is also the Senior Vice President of Communications and Editor in Chief of the Daily Signal.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Did Russian Political ads sway enough voters in any swing state to change the outcome of the 2016 vote?

How much money, on average, did the Russians spend on each political ad?

Has the US Government ever tried to sway the outcome of a foreign election?

Can foreign governments/citizens own TV, Radio signals, or newspapers within the US?

Have courts ruled that lies can be told by politicians and media outlets and it’s up to the voter who is telling the truth?

Are some lawmakers attempting to use the situation to bully social media and technology companies?

PSALMS FOR LIVING
Discussed by Terry Lowry
with Host of the What's UP Radio Program

Today’s Psalms for Living is taken from Psalm 132:1-5   1Remember, O Lord, in David's favor, all the hardships he endured, 2how he swore to the Lord and vowed to the Mighty One of Jacob, 3“I will not enter my house or get into my bed, 4I will not give sleep to my eyes or slumber to my eyelids, 5until I find a place for the Lord, a dwelling place for the Mighty One of Jacob.”

The first word in this Psalm is the focus of Mark’s devotion today: Remember. The Hebrew translation of the word is: zakar.

Does God need to be reminded of things? Doesn’t He know everything because He planned everything? Why would the Psalmist “remind” God of things in his past? Mark includes several verses that assure us that God does, in fact, remember what He has said and done in each of our lives.

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


Part 5

Mark Lanier continues in his Old Testament Road to Jesus series this week, focusing on Moses.

NOTE: This will be Part 1 of Moses. Next week, we will air a special interview with Pastor John Piper and the following week will be a special presentation on Missions in our community, state, and across the world. Mark will pick back up on Moses after that.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Were the people anxious to meet another man like Moses? They had no idea what was in store!

Mark closes this week’s lesson with a look at several passages which connect Moses to Jesus:
Malachi 4:4-6 2
Chronicles 36:22
Jeremiah 31:31-34
Acts 3:22
John 1:45
John 13:31
1 Corinthians 5:7

Points for Home:
Death is not the end.
God’s protection is real!
Don’t lose track of the miracle of Scripture.

SORROW
Discussed by Pastor David Fleming
with Champion Forest Baptist Church (www.ChampionForest.org)

Day 5

Champion Forest Baptist Church is in the midst of a short new series: “Getting Through What You’re Going Through”.

Each sermon will focus on a different stage of grief. Pastor LeMalle encouraged us last week through the second phase, “Struggle”. This week, Pastor David Fleming will discuss why allowing ourselves to have sorrow is vital to the recovery process.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

The third way to overcome your sorrow: Work through your grief. You may never “get over” your pain; it may never fully go away. “Closure is a myth,” Pastor Fleming states. “Instead integrate that experience into your future.” As soon as possible, return to normal, everyday activities. Learn to laugh again, have fun, and enjoy life.

The final suggestion Pastor Fleming has for those who are in the midst of sorrow is: Hold on to hope. Hope is the one thing that separates the believer from the unbeliever. Paul told the church in 1 Thessalonians 4 that it was okay to grieve, but to never lose hope that God will perform a miracle.

Pastor Fleming has a “Grief Inventory” homework assignment for you! Don’t worry – it’s easy!

1. Make a list of the sad and bad things that have caused your grief.
2. Identify what you lost, what the cost was, and when it happened.
3. Write down how you felt at that moment and how you feel now
4. Evaluate your progress over time as you’ve worked through it
5. Take the list to God and allow Him to heal your heart, soul, and mind

Pastor David Fleming encourages you to visit Champion Forest Baptist Church in NW Houston this Sunday! CFBC has Life Groups classes (Sunday School) for all ages and walks of life, including Mark Lanier’s Biblical Literacy Class, as well as several service times and locations to choose from.
