Questions/Issues Discussed:

Why did Yuri ponder on how to escape the world’s largest prison camp in the Old Soviet Union? Dr. Hendrickson explains that it all goes back to his grandfather, who was murdered by Stalin.

Are our youth today taught about the world’s largest prison camp in the Old Soviet Union? Are they taught the horrors of Communist China? Cuba? Venezuela? Dr. Hendrickson believes that too much attention is placed on Hitler and the Nazis, with barely a mention of Stalin and Communism around the world.

Discussed by Dr. Mark Hendrickson

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Why did Yuri join the Communist Party? Dr. Hendrickson explains that Yuri was definitely not a true believer in Communism; he simply saw the opportunities for career advancement and travel.

During his studies, why was Yuri required to become familiar with the writings of free-market economists? Was this task forbidden to most people?

Because of his studies and degrees, was Yuri placed in a position to help set the price for 23 million items within the USSR? Dr. Hendrickson discusses how massive this task was.

Why was Yuri obsessed with buying and selling automobiles? This is an interesting story!

Why did Yuri have such a passion to teach students literature? Did he often compare capitalism and Socialism? Dr. Hendrickson recommends everyone, especially teens and college students, check out Yuri Maltsev’s videos on YouTube.

TRIALS IN GENERAL

How did a person “break covenant with God”?

What did Ahab want?
Want did Jezebel do to get him what he wanted?

CAPITAL OFFENSE: Adultery (Leviticus 20:10)
Were two witnesses required again for this offense?
Should the man have been stoned to death, as well as the woman (Actually – no one should have been stoned, but that’s beside the point…)

TRIAL #1: ISRAEL HAS COMMITTED ADULTERY (Hosea 2:2-15)
Why was Israel considered to be the bride of God?
Why did Israel “go on trial” for adultery?

MAKING DISCIPLES
Discussed by Pastor Jarrett Stephens
with Champion Forest Baptist Church (www.ChampionForest.org)

Day 2

Champion Forest advances the Kingdom by making disciples, loving our community, and strengthening the Church.

Pastor Jarrett Stephens continues the series FOCUS this week with a reminder that, as Christians, we are commanded to make disciples of the nations.

What does “discipleship” mean? A developmental process whereby believers intentionally pass on to others what they know, have experienced, and are learning so that others become more like Jesus.

Scripture Passage: Mark 28:18-20

If you have questions about a sermon, please contact Champion Forest at questions@cfbc.org

QUESTIONS / ISSUES DISCUSSED:

Who has made an impact in your life? Yesterday, Pastor Jarrett shared some pictures and stories about people who impacted his own life – some he never even met! You can click the link above and fast-forward to the 41-minute mark to view the pictures.

MORE IMPORTANTLY: Whose life are YOU impacting? Would anyone choose YOU to talk about? Would someone put YOUR picture on the screen?

Why is Matthew 28:18-20 considered to be “The Great Commission”? What was the specific command? Was it given to just the ultra-spiritual or to ALL Christians? Is this a command for every “level” of Christianity (baby Christians, 20-year Christians, or 90-plus year Christians)? When, where, how, and why should we disciple?

If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior, text the word JESUS to 77069 and a pastor or counselor from CFBC will call you back.
