Current Show (February 22, 2017):
MODERN VERSION OF CHILD SACRIFICE
Discussed by Joe Goodson
with Concerned Christian Citizens (Concerned Christian Citizens)
What are you doing this coming Saturday, February 25, 2017? Can you make it to Austin for a prayer rally to stop the sacrifice of millions of children? Click
here for more details about the
Abolish Abortion Texas Rally.
Joe Goodson is the President of Concerned Christian Citizens. His organization, along with many others, stand behind HB948, which would abolish abortion in Texas.
Is America’s greatest national evil the murder of our own pre-born children?
Is now the right time to abolish abortions in Texas? Listen in as Joe Goodson compares abortion to the slavery of the people of Israel. “We have blood on our hands that we, as a nation, have to answer for,” Goodson says.
What is HB948?
THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND A WHOLE LOT OF UGLY IN YOUR HOME
Discussed by Paul Asay
with Plugged-In (Plugged-In)
Back in the 1940s, the town of Riverdale was known as the happy and
innocent home of comic book characters Archie, Jughead, Veronica, Betty and the
gang. However, “Plugged In” editor, Paul Asay, believes
today’s “family TV shows” are anything but “family-friendly”.
What is the goal and mission of “Plugged In”?
Every year, there are many new TV shows to watch and become engaged in. One new show that is being touted as a “family-friendly” show is “Riverdale” on the CW based on the old Archie and the Gang TV show. Listen as Paul Asay compares the two shows…actually they are as different as night and day.
Is the progressiveness of sexuality really something Christians should be welcoming into their homes?
Are some TV shows, whether on regular or cable TV, worse than R-rated movies?
How can we encourage our children and grandchildren to turn away from something they may accidentally see on TV at a friend’s home? Do you remember the childhood song: “Be careful little eyes what you see…be careful little ears what you hear…”?
“The images that we see (on TV) are incredibly powerful,” Paul states. “But those images are nothing compared to what your influence is to (your) kids.”

WILL OBAMACARE IMPLODE COMPLETELY?
Discussed by Arina Grossu
with Family Research Council (www.FRC.org)
After taking a financial beating from an exchange that's more
volatile than ever, insurance company Humana said it will head for the
exit on the law in 2018. Like UnitedHealthCare
and others before it, Humana can't keep absorbing the losses of an
imbalanced pool of policyholders.
Arina Grossu is the Director for Human Dignity at the Family Research Council. Listen in as she discusses the Humana devastation and the future of Obamacare. Is Trumpcare next?
Do our Republican Elected Officials want to be remembered as supporting Trumpcare?
What’s UP with Humana leaving the Obamacare exchange? Have others before Humana done the same?
Is there any incentive for healthy people to buy insurance when a plan can become retroactive if they do become ill? Compare that to car insurance…
What are the three actions our Elected Officials must implement immediately?
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 25:16-18 “16Turn to me and be gracious to me, for I am lonely and afflicted.
17The troubles of my heart are enlarged; bring me out of my distresses.
18Consider my affliction and my trouble, and forgive all my sins.”
Remember that famous song “Help” by a little group called The Beatles? They said over and over again in that song: “Help! I need somebody! Not just anybody!”
The Psalmist is crying out to God. Why? We all need someone to help us. How many times do you turn to God first? God will always be there. Mark writes: “He instills confidence in me – not in luck, but in His control and ability to walk on the roughest waters with me.”
God solves both the crisis and our loneliness. Listen as Terry reads more from today’s devotion, which offers encouragement when we sin (Matthew 11:29-30).

WHY I AM NOT A JEW…OR AM I?
Discussed by Mark Lanier
with Biblical Literacy (www.Biblical-Literacy.com)
Mark Lanier will be completing his series “Why I Am Not” over the next few weeks with a lesson on the Jewish faith. Aren’t we all Jewish? What exactly do Jews believe? How does the Jewish faith differ from other Christian beliefs?
Mark Lanier continues to give an account of how the Israelites gained their freedom. He also explains how easy it is for “fake Israel news” to drown the internet. Consider Wikipedia…
What do scholars say about Israel and the history of the Jews? Are many wrong in their assertions? Again, consider Wikipedia…
Over the past two days, Mark has discussed three categories of Jews: kosher and non-kosher, genetic, and cultural Jews. The fourth is a religious Jew. What does it mean to be a “religious Jew”? How are religious Jews different than the others?
Do some Jews also identify as “other”?
When and how did the Pharisees make an appearance in the Bible? Tune in tomorrow to hear more!
Mark is leading his 800+ member class into a deeper understanding of God’s Word. Join him next Sunday at Champion Forest Baptist Church in NW Houston.

Discussed by Pastor Averri LeMalle
with Champion Forest Baptist Church (www.ChampionForest.org)
This week, we continue with the “Gospel According to Matthew Sermon Series” with Pastor Averri LeMalle’s sermon: “Step Up”. Pastor Averri is the teaching pastor at
Champion Forest Baptist Church. Click the link below for more information on service times and locations.
As children, we must follow our parents’ rules. As Christians, we must follow God’s rules. But remember what Pastor Averri says…putting aside all those rules and regulations, God wants to have a relationship with us.
But how can we follow those rules and regulations in order to obtain a relationship with God? Pastor Averri continues with Matthew 5:23 and Jesus’s instructions to the disciples, specifically toward anger. In fact, there are many instances throughout the Bible when Jesus addressed the sin of anger.
“Our emotions can get in the way of our worship of God,” Pastor LeMalle states. “Any time we portray anger toward someone else, we are portraying our anger toward someone who is made in God’s image… We cannot claim to love God and remain angry with the very people God loves.” Ouch! Remember that the next time you get angry with your spouse or your kids!
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.
