A FREE AND OPEN PRESS
Discussed by Terry Lowry
with Host of the What's UP Radio Program

Courts across our land have ruled that, when it comes to political speech, one may lie – and many do. The courts leave the decision up to the voter to decide who is telling the truth and who is lying.

Many who do not support the LINK Letter call for abortion on demand, support the LGBTQ community, and desire legalized marijuana nationwide. Those whom Terry does not endorse are the vilest and most outspoken haters.

HERETIC: ONE SCIENTIST’S JOURNEY FROM DARWIN TO DESIGN
Discussed by Dr. Jonathan Witt
with Discovery Institute (www.discovery.org)


Part 1 of 2

Dr. Jonathon Witt has written a new book, “Heretic: One Scientist’s Journey from Darwin to Design”, along with co-author Matti Leisola.

Dr. Witt is a Senior Fellow and Senior Project Manager at the Discovery Institute’s Center for Science & Culture. His areas of expertise are literature, evolution, and intelligent design.

Brief description of the book:  “What happens when an up-and-coming European bio-scientist flips from Darwin disciple to Darwin defector? Sparks fly. Just ask biotechnologist Matti Leisola. It all started when a student loaned the Finnish scientist a book criticizing evolutionary theory. Leisola reacted angrily, and set out to defend evolution, but found his efforts raised more questions than they answered. He soon morphed into a full-on Darwin skeptic, even as he was on his way to becoming a leading bio-engineer. Heretic is the story of Leisola’s adventures making waves — and many friends and enemies — at major research labs and universities across Europe. Tracing his investigative path, the book draws on Leisola’s expertise in molecular biology to show how the evidence points more strongly than ever to the original biotechnologist—a designing intelligence whose skill and reach dwarf those of even our finest bioengineers, and leave blind evolution in the dust.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Is the number of Darwin-doubting scientists growing internationally?

Dr. Witt’s new book focuses on the study made by his co-author Matti Leisola, who was seeking evidence to prove Darwin was correct. Listen as Dr. Witt describes what happened to change his mind.



PART 2 OF 2 - HERETIC: ONE SCIENTIST’S JOURNEY FROM DARWIN TO DESIGN

Questions/Issues Discussed:

What is the difference between intelligent design and evolution?

Disclaimer: Use caution when listening to this segment around young children. Santa and the Easter Bunny will be discussed!



WHY ARE CRIMINALS GOING FREE?
Discussed by Jeff Clayton
with American Bail Coalition (www.americanbailcoalition.org)

The Eighth Amendment to the United States Constitution states: “Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.”

Why was this specifically mentioned in the Bill of Rights? Listen as Jeff Clayton offers some insight into the current state of bail bonds in today’s court system. Mr. Clayton is the Executive Director of the American Bail Coalition.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Why was the Eight Amendment included in the US Constitution’s Bill of Rights?

What is a bail bond? Do some bonds allow the accused to pay nothing up-front or very little?

Many Judges across America are giving more and more people “get out of jail free cards”. Why?

When did bonds originate? HINT: It was a long, long, long time ago!

What started the massive “let me free because I’m broke” national movement?

Are there statistics which show people who are released on bond commit more crimes while they are “free”?

Recently the 5th Circuit Court issued a ruling concerning this issue. Listen as Jeff Clayton explains how it could affect you.

How can citizens be safe if criminals continue to be released on bonds they never repay? Short Answer: They cannot be safe.



CROWN MINISTRIES DEVOTION
Discussed by Terry Lowry
with Host of the What's UP Radio Program

Today’s devotion from Crown Financial Ministries  is entitled: “You Are Salt” and is taken from Matthew 5:13 “You are the salt of the earth.”

Salt has two major purposes: to season and to preserve.

Salt, as a seasoning, makes food more palatable. When others look at Christians, they should see love, kindness, joy, and peace – all things which make life more palatable.

Salt, as a preservative, keeps food from spoiling. Larry Burkett writes in today’s devotion: “We must preserve the truth by telling others about the Lord and providing a light for those who are looking for the truth.”

Further Scripture reading: Exodus 16-18



STUDY ON COLOSSIANS
Discussed by Mark Lanier
with Biblical Literacy (www.Biblical-Literacy.com)


Day 3

Champion Forest Baptist Church has embarked on a church-wide, multi-week study on the book of Colossians with a new series called “Multiply”. This includes Mark’s Biblical Literacy class.

This week’s lesson is from Colossians 1:15-29

If you do not have a church home, this is the perfect time to visit! Click here http://www.championforest.org/ for more details.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

How to dig deeper into the Scripture:
1. Look at other Scriptures that are similar
2. Look for other commentary on the issue (Mark mentions “The All Sufficient Christ” by William Barclay)
(These two were discussed on Tuesday’s program. Click on the archives to hear more.)
3. Look for “good” commentary – this is different than the above! A good resource is the “New International Commentary of the New Testament”.
4. Look at Greek text (if you know it!)

In addition to studying the Scriptures in depth, Mark says that sometimes there are “problem passages” or “problem words”. Listen as he discusses the following:
1. Visible/invisible
a) How can God be both visible and invisible?
b) What does “icon” mean?
c) Story about the History Channel TV show “Vikings”

Tune in tomorrow for more “problem passages”…

GOD MULTIPLIES WHAT WE PRIORITIZE
Discussed by Pastor David Fleming
with Champion Forest Baptist Church (www.ChampionForest.org)

Day 3

Champion Forest Baptist Church has embarked on new journey to expand the Kingdom of God through an initiative they are calling MULTIPLY. MULTIPLY is a new and deeper way of thinking, of believing and trusting, of following Jesus, and of doing ministry and mission as His church.

The focused verse for MULTIPLY comes from 2 Corinthians 9:10 “He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness.”

Scriptures for this week:
Genesis 12:10-13
Genesis 13:1-15

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Why did Abram give the first choice of land to Lot? Pastor Fleming says: “Abram knew that God was the God of Lot’s choices.

Abram demonstrated trust in the promises of God… Listen as the church congregation sings a short part of “Standing on the Promises of God”.

Pastor Fleming goes on to say: “Faith in God means we trust Him even in the great unknown.

Have you made a commitment to God? We make commitments to pay a house and car payment. We make commitments to the cell phone and water company. “It’s not about commitment, though,” Pastor Fleming warns. “It’s about priority.”

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.
