Current Show (April 27, 2017):

Discussed by Brad Mattes
with Life Issues Institute www.lifeissues.org

Disclaimer: Use caution when listening to this segment around young children. Issues discussed might be upsetting or hard for little ones to understand.

Graphic imagery was key to ending slavery, Nazi concentration camps, and the Vietnam War. The images caused people to see the truth and put an end to the atrocities.

Brad Mattes, with Life Issues, has some disturbing news coming out of Australia today. We in America should pay close attention to ensure these lies do not come to our shores.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

WHAT’S UP with the Victoria, Australia State Supreme Court?

What did the Court decide about using the images of dead babies to spread the truth about abortion?

What did the Court call the images? Were they right?

Do graphic images actually help spread the truth about evil in this world?

In Victoria, Australia, are pro-life organizations and activists permitted to use a picture of an aborted baby when talking about abortion? What forms of communication are prohibited and which are allowed?

Could this new law also affect organizations outside of Australia?

How many babies are now being murdered each day in America through abortion?

How can we in America help turn the tide against abortion?

Part 1 of 2

Politics 101: When you win and control the votes, reward your friends and punish your enemies. If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, and smells like duck, then it’s probably a duck.

Tori Sommerman, the Deputy Director of Texas Watch, is here today to discuss a SB873, which, unfortunately, just passed in the Texas Senate. Its sister bill, HB1964, has already passed the House Committee and needs your immediate attention.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

SB873 addresses an issue with landlords vs tenants. Listen as Tori Sommerman explains the bureaucratic maze which tenants will be required to navigate just to obtain their day in court if this bill is passed in the House.

Who will be affected by this bill?

How is the overcharge determined?

Are tenants currently able to utilize the local court system to challenge their landlords concerning this issue?

How many class action lawsuits have been filed over the past ten years?

Discussed by Tori Sommerman
with Texas Watch (www.TexasWatch.org)

Questions/Issues Discussed:

There are much more important issues that the Texas Legislature could be tackling instead of the one we are discussing today. However, isn’t the right to a Trial by Jury vital to the preservation of America?

What groups are advocating in favor of SB873 and HB1964?

Have these bills received bi-partisan support?

Can a tenant fight their landlord in their own community? Or, must the tenant present their case in Austin, no matter where they live?

BOTTOM LINE: Is this bill fair?

Call the Capitol Switchboard at 512.463.4630 and urge your Elected Representative to vote AGAINST HB1964.

with Host of the What's UP Radio Program

Today’s Psalms for Living is taken from Psalm 51:5  Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin did my mother conceive me.

Do you believe in original sin? If not, spend some time around some children! Even the most obedient child will sin or misbehave naturally.

Sin has an insidious power over us. Mark writes about Paul’s warnings concerning sin and about Jesus’ loving forgiveness. Listen as Terry reads more from today’s devotion, which includes more encouragement from Paul.

Discussed by Dr. Stephen Trammell
with Champion Forest Baptist Church (www.ChampionForest.org)

Day 4

Pastor Stephen Trammel is the Lead Pastor at Champion Forest North Klein. We are airing portions of his sermon this week entitled “Soul Care”, from February 12, 2017, focusing on Matthew Chapter 11.

For details about the Champion Forest North Klein campus, click here.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Pastor Trammel uses the word REST as an acrostic for this week’s sermon. When your load exceeds your limit, it’s time to REST. R represents: “Respond to Jesus’s invitation” and E moves you to “Embrace his promise”. S…do you “Submit to His Will” – fully?

What happens when you allow the approval of man to overshadow the approval of God?

Has your view of reality been skewed by the materialistic world?

Pastor Trammel challenges you to throw your yoke into the fire. Now, take up the yoke Jesus offers you and “submit to His will”. Doesn’t that feel better?

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

Day 4

This week, Pastor David Fleming’s sermon is entitled: “Who is Jesus to You” from the sermon series “The Gospel of Matthew”. This sermon was presented on March 5, 2017, and focuses on Matthew Chapter 16.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Listen as Pastor Fleming reviews some of the “I AM” Scriptures which reveal who Jesus is.

What does Hosanna mean?

Jesus was not ashamed to proclaim who he was. Are you as confident?

John openly stated that Jesus was Christ, the Son of the Living God. What did Jesus say and do in response?

How did Peter come to a realization of who Jesus was? It’s a pretty amazing story! Listen as Pastor Fleming offers encouragement through Peter.

We all have a story. What is yours?

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.
