CLASS SIZES ARE EXPLODING
Discussed by Stacy Washington
with Project 21 (www.NationalCenter.org)

Part 1 of 2

America is great. We have the most freedom of any nation in the world. We have great trading policies. We have great health care opportunities. Or we did once upon a time. We have free public education for anyone who wants it – including illegal immigrants.

Wait a minute! Aren’t illegal immigrants, even children, supposed to be sent back to their home country? We all know by now that this is not the case. Over 90,000 unaccompanied children have entered the United States this year. This number does NOT include the number of illegal immigrant children who have crossed the border with a parent or other adult.

Stacy Washington is a former school board member and is part of the National Center for Public Policy Research’s division of Project 21. She says that there is not another nation in the world which allows illegal immigrants to attend school for free. In fact, their parents are sent to prison and the children are deported! She also points out that the deportation process is much, much faster in other countries, as well.

Many of these illegal immigrant children coming to America from south of the border do not speak Spanish, but some other language that is considered dead in the modern era. Teachers must be hired to translate for these children, new curriculum must be purchased, schedules rearranged. School districts are not prepared for this increased cost.

Furthermore, unlike American-born children who are required to have up-to-date shot records or a doctor’s note exempting them from immunizations, these illegal immigrant children are COMPLETELY EXEMPT. They are bringing diseases – some deadly – to our schools, infecting hundreds, if not thousands, of our children.

PART 2 OF 2 - CLASS SIZES ARE EXPLODING
Discussed by Stacy Washington
with Project 21 (www.NationalCenter.org)

Teacher associations and unions all advocate for smaller classrooms. Schools are already overcrowded. Funding is already limited.

Stacy Washington says that the influx of illegal immigrant children that are flooding our nation’s public school system will have astronomical effects on every student in the classroom. When you think about it, our children only receive four (4) hours of instructional time during the school day. Time is spent traveling from class to class and doing extra-curricular activities such as PE, music, and art. Younger students have recess. All students obviously need to eat lunch.

When you add several illegal immigrant children who to don’t speak English to these already overcrowded classrooms, the instructional time dwindles down even further because teachers must help the non-English speaking students more often.

If 90,000 illegal immigrant children enter the public school system in America this year, and each student costs an average of $9,000, that will add an additional $810 Million to our already over-extended budgets. Teaching students English as a second language adds even more to the cost.

IS YOUR CHURCH PREPARED?
Discussed by David Gibbs
with National Center for Life and Liberty (www.NCLL.org)

Part 1 of 2

If a child or teenager was abused or injured at the hands of a staff member or volunteer, how would your church handle the aftermath? What if a gay couple requested to be married in your church? Is your church prepared for a legal battle?

We don’t want to think that something bad could happen on a church outing, such as a bus or van accident. No church is immune. Accidents happen all the time.

The National Center for Life and Liberty is dedicated to helping churches during these trying times. Attorney David Gibbs says churches must be prepared beforehand, though.

Make sure your pastors and leaders know about the upcoming seminars in Dallas and Houston on August 26th and August 28th (respectfully). Seminar times are from 9 am – 3:30 pm each day. For locations and registration information, log on to www.NCLL.org.   Look for the “Church Leadership Legal Seminars” banner in the center of the home page and click “More Details”.

PART 2 OF 2 - IS YOUR CHURCH PREPARED?
Discussed by David Gibbs
with National Center for Life and Liberty (www.NCLL.org)

Your church probably has a background checking system in place for volunteers and staff members – and that is great! But how does your church protect volunteers and staff members from false accusations or threats? If a pastor or counselor advices someone and the person ignores their advice and something tragic happens, that person could sue the pastor and the church!

If someone dies and leaves a portion of their estate to the church, the deceased’s relatives could sue the church for the property/money. Is your church ready for such a battle?

Whether your church has 100 members or 10,000, they must be prepared for every situation. Pass this information along to your pastor

WHAT DISEASES WILL YOUR KIDS BE EXPOSED TO THIS FALL?
Discussed by Dr. Elizabeth Lee Vliet
with HerPlace www.HerPlace.com

Dr. Elizabeth Lee Vliet discusses Ebola and what it means for you and the rash of diseases coming into America from illegal immigrants.

First, Ebola…On august 7, we had Dr. David Stevens on to discuss Ebola. You can search our archives to hear his interview.

Today, Dr. Vliet takes it one step further. She says we cannot say that America will “never” see an outbreak like Africa has seen. This disease is evolving even as we speak. There is not a “cure” for this deadly disease, so Dr. Vliet says we need to stay vigilant and use extreme caution.

Second, what diseases are illegal immigrants bringing into America? Dr. Vliet says the media is NOT reporting the truth. Shocker! In one “safe location” alone, 89 cases of Tuberculosis were discovered, but not reported. The media only reported that the location was being quarantined because of two – TWO!!! – cases of chicken pox. Did they really expect us to believe that?

Listen in as Dr. Vliet shares more about the border patrol agents, what they can and cannot do, and what that means for us.

THE CONTEXT BIBLE: LESSON 32
Discussed by Jared Richard
with Champion Forest Baptist Church (www.ChampionForest.org)

Day 5

So far with the Context Bible, Mark has gone through the Gospel of John and is now taking us through Acts, studying the Holy Spirit in the Church. Mark supplements scriptures from the rest of the Bible during his Life Group class every Sunday, while the “meat” of the Context Bible comes from John, Acts, and Revelations (which will begin in November) in the sermons every Sunday.

Jared Richard is the Associate Pastor to Young Adults and Missions at Champion Forest and is standing in this week while Mark is away.

Paul says that in order to disciple people, we must show them what ultimately matters and that is a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Be secure in the Lord, not the approval of man.

Not only must we show people what really matters, we must also work diligently do it. We must work hard. Nobody said that the Christian life would be easy. Nobody said that witnessing to others about Christ would be easy. We all fear rejection. We all fear failure.

Paul also warns us to not allow our integrity to be questioned. Do not give anyone the chance to call into question your motives when sharing the Gospel. Even when you are called names. Even when you are mocked. Even when you are kicked out of someone’s home. Share the Gospel and do it with a loving heart, never quitting – never giving up.

Paul urges us to encourage other believers. Even after Paul established a church and discipled people, he would continuously write them letters of encouragement. Just because he left them, that didn’t mean he was “gone”. Paul also scolded them when they messed up and began to stray away from the Gospel, but he did so in a loving and graceful way.

Finally, we must find delight in watching others grow in the Lord. Are you still moved spiritually when you witness a baptism, or has it become just another “event” on the Sunday morning calendar? If you are a leader in your church, do you get jealous when someone you have trained does a better job than you do? Or are you encouraged to see that person growing in the Lord?

Encouragement for Believers: Dr. Coleman wrote a book and based it on Matthew 28:20 “Lo, I am with you always”. Listen in to this final segment this week to hear why Dr. Coleman uses this verse to encourage us and also to learn how you can be an encouragement to other believers.


Mark Lanier is a practicing attorney who also holds a B.A. in Biblical Languages from David Lipscomb University. He is both a committed student of Scripture and an excellent communicator of its truths.

If you do not have a church home, Mark invites you to come to Champion Forest Baptist Church in Houston, TX.  Attend the early service at 9:30 AM and then go the Family Life Center (located near the center of the church building) for his Life Group class, which begins at 11 AM. Mark’s class averages about 800 people every Sunday, so don’t be shy! Come and join them this Sunday!

Listen in every day to hear a portion of Mark’s lesson.

Remember, you can order a copy of his new book, “Christianity on Trial”, directly from the publisher [here].
