Obey God or Man? (pt 3) Civil Disobedience

June 2nd, 2018

Here's a topic you won't hear from most pulpits today. When the choice is between obeying God or man, our choice is clear. So what do we do if obeying God brings us into conflict with civil law?

Obey God or Man? (pt 2)

May 25th, 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, but it is a no-brainer for a Christian. 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!

The Truth About Abortion with Brian Walker - pt 1

March 19th, 2018

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.
