Obey God or Man? (pt 1)

May 18th, 2018

Jesus promised His disciples they would experience persecution. Why? Because humanity's kingdoms instinctively clash with God's kingdom. It's a battle of wills. Whose will be done? Most of the time this world's kingdoms have no problems with Christians. But there come times when the world demands Christians follow man's demands and not God's commands. Even within the Church world the demands of man collide with God's will and individual Christians or groups of Christians face a choice - Obey God or Man? This is not an easy choice. However, Peter and John and the early disciples showed us how it's to be done. Check out this episode of the Truth Barista. It just might prepare you for times that are a-comin'!

Is this what real revival is? What are the hallmarks of true revival? Is revival what a church presents or what a person experiences? Can you have revival if something isn't "vived" first? Take a listen to the Truth Barista and Amazing Larry...and may the Lord fan the flames of love for Him in your heart!

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!!

God’s Answer to the Welfare State - YOU!

July 7th, 2017

On the heels of last's week's episode about God's miraculous provision, the Truth Barista discusses God's main way of providing for people - YOU! You are God's main way to meet the needs of those around you. In truth, the needy are all around us and we can't shut our eyes and ignore them. Neither can we personally meet every need. But God can...and He often chooses to do so through His people. If God's people would ramp up their level of caring more and put feet to their faith more, the problem of need could be significantly reduced. Why? Because we live on the level of the world's needs and we have a God above who supplies us to help others. Take a listen!
