Women In Ministry - pt. 5, Headcoverings?

September 19th, 2019

Man, talk about weird interpretations! Because people have read Apostle Paul from a 21st c. perspective instead of a 1st c. perspective, HALF of the church has been greatly affected for almosts 2,000 years. As a result, women have been prohibited from exercising their God-given gifts of teaching, preaching, sharing, even serving in leadership! Join Jay the Truth Barista and Amazing Larry as they dig into Paul's first letter to the Corinthians (1 Corinthians 11) regarding this remarkable subject. Women...be free!

Women In Ministry - pt. 4 Headcoverings?

September 13th, 2019

Jay the Truth Barista and Amazing Larry continue their study on Women In Ministry by addressing some of the very difficult scriptures where it appears Apostle Paul tightly controlled how women were to act in church. The context is CRITICAL! For fun, take a moment to think about all you've heard about Paul's direction in 1 Corinthians 11:1-14. Got it? Now, get ready for a massive knowledge adjustment. What do headcoverings mean to men and women in Paul's Corinthian congregation? Is this a matter of authority...OR SOMETHING ELSE? (Yes...that's a big hint.)

Biblical Accountabilty (pt. 1) - No One Is Immune From Scrutiny!

May 10th, 2019

How often have we seen or heard ministers, ministries, Christian groups or individuals do or say some wild things that make us wonder if they're on the up and up or even sane? While we need to see God's power today and God's word preached, this doesn't mean anyone can say or do anything with impunity. Some people assume if a manifestation is unusual or supernatural, it must be of God. Some people elevate Christian leaders to the point of untouchable, uncorrectable celebrity personalities. But is this right? Is there a standard of accountability to which our words and ways are supposed to be weighed? Yes! Check out this must hear two-part series on Biblical Accountability!

Nephilim - One Giant Bible Question! (pt. 1)

April 27th, 2019

Did giants really roam the earth in Noah's day or didn't they? It depends upon your world-view and view of the supernatural! One of the trickiest things about reading and studying the Bible is when to take a section figuratively or literally. Sometimes, both can be applied. Isaiah 7 is one such double interpretation verse. On one hand, Isaiah prophesies about a physical son as a sort of "timer" of Aram's destruction (Aram was threatening Jerusalem). On the other hand, time has proven this same section as pertaining to a coming Messiah - "See, the virgin will conceive, have a son, and name him Immanuel." (Isaiah 7:14) Well, Genesis 6 is a puzzler as well. Were there giants in Noah's day, offspring of spiritual beings (the Watchers) and human women? Take a listen to part 1 of a two-part series on the Nephilim, the giants, of Genesis 6!

 

What Is Real Revival? (pt 1)

April 6th, 2018

REVIVAL. What do you think of when you hear that word? An ol' fashioned tent-meeting with portable baptism tank and sawdust floor? A church service with a hot worship band, light show, and ecstatic singing? Or how about a fire and brimstone preacher stalking the stage like a panther looking for prey? 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 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!

Hypocrisy - A Most Dangerous Leaven

October 16th, 2017

Hypocrisy! How often is that accusation leveled against others, especially Christians. But what is hypocrisy? Why is hypocrisy so dangerous? Is the labeled deserved or not? When is it right to call someone out on their hypocrisy? Join the Truth Barista and he and Amazing Larry take a closer look at Matthew 16 and how Jesus confronts the leaders of His day about their hypocrisy. Are we just as guilty?

3 Ways To Defile A Nation - Idolatry, Immorality, Innocent Bloodshed

October 8th, 2017

"Defile" - a word that means to POLLUTE, CONTAMINATE, MAKE DISGUSTING. According to the Bible, there are 3 main ways to make your nation disgusting to God - Idolatry, Immorality, Innocent Bloodshed. In fact, if we as a society allow these three things to run rampant in our nation, not only does it disgust God, but it's a wide-open invitation for God's judgment!

 

Want to know something really scary? The United States has welcomed and OFFICIALLY enshrined these three defilements - Idolatry: Rejecting God by removing Him from the public square via no prayer in schools, etc. (Engel v. Vitale, 370 U.S. 421, 1962), Innocent Bloodshed: Abortion (Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113, 1973), and Immorality (Obergefell v. Hodges, 576 U.S. ___, 2015). Is God's judgment far behind? What can we do to remove the guilt of our nation before God? Is it even possible? Take a listen as the Truth Barista explains.
