The Truth About Abortion with Brian Walker - pt 1

March 19th, 2018

Some truths are very hard to hear. Legalized abortion has been a part of United States society since 1973 with the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision. But what are the truths about abortion? How has it affected us, our nation, our churches? We can't turn a blind eye to abortion. One of the things God holds against a nation is the shedding of innocent blood. And those who have experienced abortion (directly or indirectly) also experience repercussions on multiple levels. Take a listen. Take a stand.


God Rewards Desperate Faith, part 2 - The Gentile Woman.

March 9th, 2018

"Sorry, I wasn't sent to help dogs." You know, we don't really expect words like that to come out of Jesus' mouth...but they did. Here's the quote. "It isn’t right to take the children’s bread and throw it to the dogs." (Matthew 15:26) Now if you stop there in the text, it sounds horrible. Okay, even if you read the whole text including Jesus agreeing to help the woman, it sounds terrible. BUT if you learn the context and take the language and God's plan into account, this is a profound story of mercy and compassion, one that should encourage us to reach out with a desperate faith that God rewards!


God Rewards Desperate Faith, part 1 - The Bleeding Woman.

March 2nd, 2018

Yes, Jesus loves and responds to people who trust Him. But the Bible also shows that Jesus' most powerful miracles came to those who desperately reached out to Him, even if it meant violating "decorum" or "politeness" or any other religious way of seeking Him. Take a listen to this episode, especially if you're at a place of desperation! A woman who has been bleeding for TWELVE YEARS took an enormous risk and reached out to touch Jesus' garment, trusting that she would get healed. The how and why are FASCINATING, but the fact that Jesus responded to her desperate situation takes it to a whole other level! Don't give up hope. Be desperate in your pursuit of God!


The Big Divorce Debate

February 22nd, 2018

So, can a Christian or any person ever get divorced? If not, why? If so, under what conditions?

Can a divorced person ever remarry or are they under a perpetual sentence of singleness? These are questions that have stumped many Christians and brought pain and suffering to struggling marrieds and pain-touched divorced people. Take a listen to the Truth Barista and Larry to find HOPE and HEALING!

The Allegation Circus - Addressing the Culture of Accusation

February 4th, 2018

ACCUSATIONS! ALLEGATIONS! INNUENDO! Satanic tools used to bring down political opponents, partners in poisoned relationships, tearing down co-workers to get ahead - we are surfing a TIDE of allegations. True, some are based on facts. Some are based on rumor, hearsay, or outright lies. Did you think about this recently? Where are the are Judge Roy Moore's accusers now that the Judge lost his Senate race? Or President Trump's accusers now that he won the presidency? How do we handle a Sen. Franken's accuser who has photographic evidence vs. Judge Moore's accusers who presented none and one whose "evidence" was proven false. Once the damage is done, what can one do? We all face accusations from time to time - some are inconsequential, some can be devastating! How should we deal with this circus of allegations whether we're a spectator or the main event in the ring? Take a listen to this hard-hitting episode as the Truth Barista and Amazing Larry unpack these questions!

Jerusalem: The Eternal, Undivided Capital of Israel!

January 19th, 2018

We are standing at a momentous time in history! Daresay, it is the fulfillment of End-Time Biblical prophecy. After nearly 2,000 years, The Jews are back in their land and they are sovereign over Jerusalem as their capital. Two things that the Bible says are End-Time indicators.

Take a listen and find out if YOU could be convicted of coveting or merely wanting. There's a HUGE difference!


The Ten Commandments - #9 - Don’t Bear False Witness

January 5th, 2018

What does "bearing false witness" mean? Is it just lying or is it more than that? Why would God put this eeny-meeny-teeny "sin" in His Top Ten List of foundational Do's and Don'ts? Because lying is a direct denial of Truth and thus A DENIAL OF GOD HIMSELF. Still think bearing false witness is a small matter? Check this out!
