The Ten Commandments - Command #5 - Honor Your Father and Mother

December 8th, 2017

One of the signs of an eroding society is a blatant dishonoring and disrespect for parents. Why is this the case? It's this simple. The parents are the foundation of the family and the family is the foundation of society. So what does it mean to honor our father and mother? What if they're not worthy of honor? What if we've grown up in an abusive household? What if our parents aren't alive? Does this command still hold? Take a listen and be ready to be challenged!

The Ten Commandments - #4 - Keep the Sabbath, Make It Special (Holy)

December 1st, 2017

First of all, let's get something biblically correct. The Sabbath is sundown Friday to Saturday, not Sunday. Okay, now that we've got that on the table, let's look at the Sabbath. What does it mean to Remember the Sabbath. And why does God say "Remember the Sabbath" in one place (Exodus 20:8) and "Observe the Sabbath" in another (Deuteronomy 5:12)? IS there a difference between Remembering and Observing? Why is keeping the Sabbath so close to the commands that pertain to God Himself (Commands 1-3)? Take a listen as Jay, the Truth Barista, and Amazing Larry work through this one!

The Ten Commandments - #3 - Don’t Take the Lord’s Name in Vain

November 24th, 2017

Taking the Lord's name in vain? What does that mean? Well, in short it means misusing God's name. "Okay," many will reply, "then I shouldn't cuss, right?" Well, it's a good thing not to cuss (cursing, swearing, profanity - need I say more?), but this goes MUCH farther than that. After listening to the Truth Barista and Amazing Larry talk about this commandment, you just might find out you're been waaaaay guilty of breaking this one. Doubt me? Take a listen!

The Ten Commandments - #1 - Obedience is Job 1

November 13th, 2017

When many Christians think of the Ten Commandments (and we hope they do...) they think of Commandment #1 "I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the place of slavery" as a command to BELIEVE in God. Boy, are they in for a surprise! The Bible never commands we believe in God, it ASSUMES God's existence and as such, God's people have only one option...and that's what this episode is about. Hold onto your girdle, Myrtle! You're in for a treat!

Understanding the Bible Better - Hebrew Idioms!

October 20th, 2017

Ever talk with someone who doesn't know your language? IT'S HILARIOUS! Trying to share even the most basic information such as "Where the Ersatz Coffee Shop is" or "The bathroom is over there" can be a real chore...or an embarrassment. Well, the same holds true with the Bible. People, most of it was written in Hebrew by Hebrew speakers with a Hebraic mindset and world-view. Compared to today's Christians who speak a variety of languages with a variety of non-Hebraic mindsets and world-views we are not just miles apart, we're millennia apart! Some things cannot be effectively transmitted unless one GOES BACK to learn and understand the original context...and that's what the Truth Barista and Amazing Larry do in this podcast. Take a listen and have fun!!

3 Ways To Defile A Nation - Idolatry, Immorality, Innocent Bloodshed

October 8th, 2017

"Defile" - a word that means to POLLUTE, CONTAMINATE, MAKE DISGUSTING. According to the Bible, there are 3 main ways to make your nation disgusting to God - Idolatry, Immorality, Innocent Bloodshed. In fact, if we as a society allow these three things to run rampant in our nation, not only does it disgust God, but it's a wide-open invitation for God's judgment!

 

Want to know something really scary? The United States has welcomed and OFFICIALLY enshrined these three defilements - Idolatry: Rejecting God by removing Him from the public square via no prayer in schools, etc. (Engel v. Vitale, 370 U.S. 421, 1962), Innocent Bloodshed: Abortion (Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113, 1973), and Immorality (Obergefell v. Hodges, 576 U.S. ___, 2015). Is God's judgment far behind? What can we do to remove the guilt of our nation before God? Is it even possible? Take a listen as the Truth Barista explains.
