The Ten Commandments - Command #10 - No Coveting!

January 12th, 2018

And we come to it at last! No, not just the last of the Ten Commandments, but the one that affects all the others. You may THINK this is a simple, easy, light command, but it is UNIQUE among the other 9. Why? Because the others deal with outward actions. Thou Shall Not Covet addresses us in a way that only God can - our thoughts and desires! All the other commands hang on this one according to the biblical Sages. 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!

The Ten Commandments - Command #8 - No Stealing!

December 29th, 2017

"Aw, it's just a little thing!" "Hey, it's a big company...nobody will miss it!" "Yeah, I'm taking it because they don't pay me enough!" Stealing. It's as easy as breathing and just as common. This is one of those "sins" that people quantify - if it's a little stealing or a little item - no prob! Sad to say, stealing is wrong, whether large or small. And stealing can be a whole lot more than just a tangible thing. How about stealing someone's affection? Their reputation? There self-worth? Yeah, now you're getting the uncomfortable picture. Check the podcast out and see how prevalent...and is to steal. 

The Ten Commandments - Command #7 - No Adultery!

December 22nd, 2017

"Me? Commit adultery? Never!" Well...according to Jesus, most folks step over the line and don't even know it. Like the No Murder Commandment, there is a lot more to this command "than meets the eye!" Yup, it's what meets the heart and mind as well. Yes, sex is a wonderful gift from God, but it's also a great responsibility. Could God convict YOU of adultery? Take a listen!

The Ten Commandments - Command #6 - Could You Be Convicted of Murder?

December 15th, 2017

Don't murder? Really? Doesn't this seem just a bit TOO obvious? Well, yes. But there is a depth to this commandment that goes far beyond the taking of human life. What's also surprising to many is that this commandment allows for killing other human beings. WHAT? Yup, you're just going to have to take a listen to find out what this means!

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 - #2 - There’s An “I” in Idolatry

November 17th, 2017

Do you worship idols? "Why, no, Truth Barista. I'm a Christian who loves God and is always faithful to Him." Really? Wait 'til you get a load of this. Idolatry may be one of the biggest parts of your life. This episode is guaranteed to be an "I"-opener!

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!
