APPLYING THE WORD TO YOUR LIFE DAILY
Discussed by Pastor Ed Ethridge – Retired
with Truth for You Ministries (www.truthforyou.net/)

Pastor Ed Ethridge reminds us that the Bible is there for us to use daily. If you’re having a bad day – the Bible offers hope. If you’re having a good day – the Bible encourages. Open your Bible today and let God’s Word guide your steps.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

What does “iron sharpens iron” mean?

When believers are involved in one another's lives, does mutual edification occur?

Is the statement “two are better than one” true? What is the three-fold chord? Read Ecclesiastes 4:9-12

Is fellowship beneficial for humans in general, but all the more so for Christians? Read Matthew 18:19-20

The Corona lockdown has forced many people home on Sundays to watch church online from their couch. Why should Christians go back to church? Read Hebrews 10:25 (this is not a suggestion; it is a command)

Pastor Ed usually presents the Wednesday night sermon at Champion Forest Baptist Church (main campus) in NW Houston. Click here  for more information.



WILL CHRISTIANITY IN AMERICA SURVIVE?
Discussed by Mario Murillo
with Mario Murillo Ministries (www.mariomurilloministries.wordpress.com)

Future generations of Christians, if there be any, will be profoundly baffled by us. They will ask “why did you let trivial and foolish matters eat up so much time?” Why did we? Why DO we?

Mario Murillo is with Mario Murillo Ministries. Although the topic today may be harsh and maybe even a little depressing, it is one that must be discussed and acted upon. Listen as Mario offers hope and encouragement.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

What can we do about the demons that are strangling Christians in America?

Some people think that once you become a Christian, Satan will leave you alone. Mario says that is like “believing the bull will not charge because you’re a vegetarian.

Can we dismantle their strongholds?

What will your legacy be?



HELEN KELLER: DID SHE PITY HERSELF?
Discussed by Bill Federer
with American Minute (www.AmericanMinute.com)

Helen Keller was born on June 27, 1880. At the age of 2, she suffered an illness which left her blind and deaf. But Helen did not let this define her life or defeat her.

Bill Federer, our favorite historian, wishes Helen Keller a “Happy Birthday”!

Questions/Issues Discussed:

What did Helen Keller say about “self-pity”?

Did Helen Keller support many different causes?

What are four things we can learn from Helen Keller?

How was Helen Keller introduced to Jesus? This is an amazing story!

Helen Keller once said: "Try to imagine how you would feel if you were suddenly stricken blind today.
Picture yourself stumbling and groping at noonday as in the night; your work, your independence, gone. In that dark world, wouldn't you be glad if a friend took you by the hand and said, 'Come with me and I will teach you how to do some of the things you used to do when you could see.’”

WHO HAS IMPACTED YOUR LIFE?
Discussed by Christi Lynn
with Focus on the Family www.Family.org

When you were a child, did an adult (other than a relative) greatly impact your life?

Christi Lynn will be discussing the John Avery Whittaker Award today. JAW is, of course, the beloved soda shop owner in the kids’ radio drama Adventures in Odyssey who was known for his listening ear and wise advice. Note: Christi is the Marketing Director of “Kids and Culture” within Focus on the Family.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Why do we love John Avery Whittaker so much?

What is the JAW Award?

Christi also discusses something new and fun in the forthcoming Adventures in Odyssey Bible.

Is it important to teach a child how to read the bible from an early age? Christi likes to say, “Kids need a strong foundation. With parenting, a lot of things are caught, not taught.” Listen in as she explains…

UNITED KINGDOM: THE TRUTH ABOUT SOCIALISM
Discussed by Dr. Lee Edwards
with The Heritage Foundation (www.Heritage.org)


Part 1 of 3

Tuesday began a three-part series with Dr. Edwards on the dangers and misgivings your children in K-College are being taught about Socialism in Israel. Wednesday, he discussed India.  Today, Dr. Edwards discusses the “United Kingdom”.

Many millennials are in favor of turning America into a Socialist nation. But is this the right path?

Dr. Lee Edwards is  distinguished in Conservative though at the Heritage Foundation’s B. Kenneth Simon Center for Principles and Politics. A leading historian of American conservatism, Lee Edwards has published 25 books, including "Just Right: A Life in Pursuit of Liberty".

Dr. Edwards is also the Founder of Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Are millennials really in favor of Socialist candidates? Why?

Why was the UK described as the “sick man of Europe”?

Switching back to America for a minute… Is California in danger of becoming the next Venezuela? Are blackouts happening on a regular basis? Do Republicans have a chance in the state?



PART 2 OF 3 - UNITED KINGDOM: THE TRUTH ABOUT SOCIALISM
Discussed by Dr. Lee Edwards
with The Heritage Foundation (www.Heritage.org)

Questions/Issues Discussed:

What brought about the economic revolution in the 70s and the 80s? Did the average Brit say, “Enough is Enough”?

How did Margaret Thatcher change things in the UK?

Do Socialist countries really take away people’s right to own a phone and computer? Oh my! What would millennials do without their phones and computers?

How did Venezuela fall into despair so quickly?



PART 3 OF 3 - UNITED KINGDOM: THE TRUTH ABOUT SOCIALISM
Discussed by Dr. Lee Edwards
with The Heritage Foundation (www.Heritage.org)

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Does Capitalism trump Socialism every time? Dr. Edwards discusses more about the UK…

What are some of the outcomes of Socialism that harm its citizens?

What are some of the outcomes of a free-market system that harm its citizens?

Could Bill Gates and other wealthy people just write checks to the American government to bail us out? Would the government, specifically Bernie Sanders, just keep asking for more and more and more?

Final thoughts from Dr. Lee Edwards: “Free-enterprise is the one system that will do more for more people and bring prosperity than any other economic system.”
