Current Show (February 24, 2017):

Discussed by Dr. Tom Oliverson
with Dr. Tom Oliverson (www.TomOliverson.com)

Approximately 1 in 4 lives lost on Texas roadways can be attributed to individuals who did not have a valid driver’s license.  Additionally, thousands upon thousands of tickets are written each year to drivers who do not have valid minimal liability insurance.

Dr. Tom Oliverson is the new Texas State Representative for District 130. He has authored HB1757, which will allow law enforcement officers to impound a vehicle if a driver does not have a valid driver license or some form of liability coverage.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Is now the time for more than a simple slap on the wrist for those who drive motor vehicles without being licensed and without liability insurance?

Are unlicensed, uninsured drivers a danger to the public?

Do unlicensed, uninsured drivers greatly increase the cost of car insurance for the rest of us?

Listen as Dr. Oliverson describes the details of HB1757. Note: This bill only applies if the license or insurance of the driver cannot be found in the system, not if the driver simply does not have the license or insurance on their person at the time.

If this issue has affected you personally, please contact Dr. Tom Oliverson.

Discussed by Terry Lowry
with Host of the What's UP Radio Program

Today’s Psalms for Living is taken from Psalm 27:1,3 “The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? ... 3 Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war arise against me, yet I will be confident.”

Mark recalls a time from his early childhood when his family was traveling through a horrific thunderstorm; a tornado was even close by! He thought his mom said “tomato” and his puzzled response soon turned to fear.

What do you fear? Do you fear nothing? Do you fear everything? What does God want us to fear? Does our fear reflect our hearts? When we cannot control a situation in our lives, we become fearful. Many times, our fears are understandable. But with that fear, we also have hope.

Mark also writes about Paul and his close brush with death in Acts 23. God intervened and he was saved! He will always – always – do the same for you.

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?

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Mark continues with the first few “Thirteen Principles of Faith” from Maimonides.

In Colossians 1:15-17, we see that God is all things; He was before all things and He will exist after all things. God created all things and He holds all things together. This is the first principle from Maimonides.

The second principle which Moses Maimonides wrote of is this: God is one: The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit. Jews believe this, just as Christians do. Mark cites several Scripture passages which confirm this as well. .

Maimonides also wrote of the Holy Spirit, which is the third principle. God is not flesh. He does not get tired. He does not “walk around” or do human activities. God uses language that we, as humans, can understand. Jesus even told people that we do not worship a “man”; we worship the Holy Spirit.

Mark will have more on “Why I Am Not a Jew” next week and will also continue with the rest of Moses Maimonides’ “Thirteen Principles of Faith”.

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

Day 5

Today we will conclude Pastor Averri LeMalle’s message “Step Up”, from the “Gospel According to Matthew” Sermon Series at Champion Forest Baptist Church, where Pastor Averri is the teaching pastor. Click the link below for more information on service times and locations.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

God is calling us away from retaliation to affection. He is calling us into a relationship with Him.” – Pastor Averri LeMalle

Yesterday, Pastor LeMalle reminded us of what Jesus said in Matthew 5 about anger, lust, adultery, divorce, swearing falsely, and revenge. Today, he looks at verses 43-48, which instruct us to love our enemies. “The essence of the Gospel is found in love,” Pastor Averri laments. We cannot hate our neighbor (or enemy) and have love for God at the same time.

You cannot survive this life alone. Only Christ can fulfill the righteousness of God. You must rely on God and accept His authority over your life. Accept and confess that only Jesus Christ can make you whole again. If you have never accepted Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior, please do not hesitate – do it today. You will be glad you did. If you would like counseling or would simply like to talk to someone about becoming a Christian, please call Champion Forest Baptist Church at (281) 440-3800.

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.
