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!!

What should be the Christian's response to racism and what if we find we are harboring thoughts and attitudes that could be racist? How can we tell? What are we to do about it? Check out the podcast for a starting point!


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!



It’s A Great Big Stupid World!

May 19th, 2017

Man, we live in a great, big stupid world! We create laws that protect unborn baby birds, but have no problem destroying human babies in the womb. Feminists march in favor of Islam, a religion that in its radical form grinds women down to the dust. The world system totally rejects God or embraces any god under the sun or invents new gods in spite of the biblical fact that God clearly reveals Himself to all people, even at the basic creation level. Why is this? Because our world is a fallen world, a world that wants to do its own thing no matter how wrong, deadly, harmful or offensive to God it is. Listen, laugh, and learn as the Truth Barista takes on the idea that we live in a great, big, stupid world!

Holy Indignation - Righteous Anger!

March 3rd, 2017

Wow! The Truth Barista and Amazing Larry are really hot today! There comes a time when Christians MUST go on the offensive and directly, firmly, and lovingly "turn over the tables" when people are wrong, whether it's about God, the Bible, or important issues of our day.

Rejoice or Resent - How Do You View Sinners? pt 2

January 13th, 2017

So, how do you view sinners? What about those who wander off from God? Are you just too good for them? Do you expect them to clean up or get their act together BEFORE you come alongside them? Or do you follow the Lord's example of desperately seek those who are lost or straying? Heart check! Take a listen...then go and find some sheep and coins, if you know what I mean.


Rejoice or Resent - How Do You View Sinners? pt1

January 6th, 2017

Sinners...yuck! Can't wait 'til they get theirs, right? Wrong! While that may be the attitude of our heart, this is NOT God's heart toward those who rebel against Him. The Bible truth is that God is always working to bring sinners home to Him for forgiveness, cleaning, and real change!

So, how do you view sinners? People to shun and despise or people in need of a loving, merciful God? Jesus reached out to sinners with compassion without compromising His truth. Can we do the same? Join Jay the Truth Barista and Amazing Larry as they examine this touchy topic!

So how do people get free from this temptation/compulsion? Take a listen!

Join Jay, the Truth Barista, and Amazing Larry, the kitchen guy, as they continue their discussion of the human drive called lust.
