THE TALE OF TWO TRANSIT SYSTEMS
Discussed by Bill King
with Bill King (www.billkingforhouston.com)

Houston Metro is in the process of re-examining its long-term strategy and mission. In considering where Metro goes from here, we should look carefully at the comparison between its experience and that of Dallas' DART system.

Bill King is a Houston political activist and former candidate for Mayor. He will be discussing pros and cons of both types of transit systems. To sign up for Bill King’s FREE blog emails, click here.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

What is the population of Houston vs Dallas? What is the difference in area covered?

Why hasn’t Houston switched to a rail system?

How much debt has Dallas suffered with their DART system? How does this compare to Houston’s Metro?

Are more or less people utilizing a rail system across America?

What is the cost difference between Metro and DART? Bill discusses the cost to the tax payer and the cost to the rider…

Do busses and rail systems really reduce air pollution and freeway congestion?

Is there a better, cheaper way to transport the disabled and those who cannot afford a vehicle and, therefore, must use a transit system? Listen as Bill offers an interesting suggestion…

ISLAM: A BOY BECOMING A MAN
Discussed by Raheel Raza
with Raheel Raza (www.raheelraza.com)

A father takes his young son to the killing fields in Afghanistan, teaching him how to be a soldier in the war against the infidels. Using his skills as a trained killer, the young man hurls a grenade, killing a U.S. soldier. During interrogations, this killer confesses to his actions. But that is not the end of the story. He sues the Canadian government, which rewards him with over ten million dollars and an apology.

Is this right? Or is this wrong?

Raheel Raza is a Pakistani-Canadian journalist, author, public speaker, media consultant, and anti-racism activist. She is an interfaith discussion leader and President of The Council of Muslims Facing Tomorrow. She is also the author of “Their Jihad, Not My Jihad: A Muslim Canadian Woman Speaks Out.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

The young man in this case was a mere fifteen years old. Is this too young to be considered responsible for your own actions? Or was he simply brainwashed?

Raheel Raza is Canadian. How do you her countrymen feel about the amount of money awarded to this young man? HINT: They are MAD!

Why was this young man rewarded so much money?

Raheel Raza concludes the interview discussing why we should all heed the warning we learn from this case.

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 85:8-9   8Let me hear what God the Lord will speak, for He will speak peace to His people, to His saints; but let them not turn back to folly. 9Surely His salvation is near to those who fear Him, that glory may dwell in our land.”

This Psalmist hears God speak peace to His people. God wants to give us that peace, even in the midst of problems. Paul implores us to not be anxious, but be in prayer in everything.

Our world is full of “noise”. How can one hear the voice of God with all this chatter? Mark uses Philippians 4:8-9 to remind us what Paul told the people about hearing God’s voice and receiving His peace.

THE LEGAL CASE FOR PAUL - PART 13
Discussed by Mark Lanier
with Biblical Literacy (www.Biblical-Literacy.com)


Day 1

This week, Mark Lanier will be teaching on Paul and his time in Ephesus. This is where the accusations began to fly and the case against him began to build.

Did Paul really start the riots? Or was he simply preaching a truth the people did not want to hear?

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Mark begins the class by discussing one of the most famous court cases in history: The Nuremberg Trials.  One of the key questions that had to be answered before the trial even started: What are the charges? You would think the answer would be obvious, but everything had to be examined first.

Many people thought the same about Paul and the charges against him. Listen as Mark reviews some of the background of the Romans and the Greeks to set the stage for Paul’s trial…He continues with this tomorrow.

BONUS: Mark is approaching his 1,000 Biblical Literacy class at Champion Forest Baptist Church! Congratulations, Mark!

THE TOUCH THAT TRANSFORMS
Discussed by Pastor David Fleming
with Champion Forest Baptist Church (www.ChampionForest.org)

Day 1

Within the Gospel of Matthew, we find many Parables taught by Jesus. This week, Pastor David Fleming, senior pastor at Champion Forest Baptist Church, dissects the “Parable of the Sower” from Matthew 13.

Pastor Fleming has two main topics from this Parable: The Four types of Soil we will encounter as we plant seeds. And how we, as Christians, can use seeds in our own lives to grow and transform in our walk with Christ.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

What does “Parable” mean?

The people listening to Jesus speak were not really there to learn anything; they just wanted to be near him and hear him teach. They wanted to be entertained.

Do you really hear what the preacher says on Sunday morning? You sit there, dressed in your Sunday best, in your favorite seat, listening…but do you really hear?

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.
