To Stay or Flee? Holding on to Jesus In Tough Situations

October 28th, 2019

Influential Christians have recently walked away from Jesus. Some have done it quietly and others have publicly repudiated their faith. Some have faced such tough situations they've taken their own lives. What is going on? How could this happen? Are we challenged with the same disillusionment or discouragement? In the midst of a crisis of faith are we faced with the appealing idea of walking away, perhaps even ending it all? Take a breath. Pause. Then take a few moments with Jay the Truth Barista and Amazing Larry as they ponder this very difficult topic.

Women in Ministry - pt. 9 - “A Case for Women Elders/Deacons?”

October 18th, 2019

We reach the end of our remarkable series on Women in Ministry. In this episode, Jay the Truth Barista takes on the topic of Women as Elders and Deacons. To some churches, this is no big deal. For other churches, this is HERESY! Take a listen and you'll be surprised at what Paul (the supposed misogynist) has to say about women in these very important spiritual care functions.

Women In Ministry - pt. 8, 1 Timothy 2:11-15

October 11th, 2019

Once again Jay the Truth Barista and Amazing Larry tackle Paul's tough commands regarding women...or is it just a woman Paul is concerned about? Why is it important that silence is kept? And no teaching? And what about this weird thing about "...she will be saved through childbearing, if they continue in faith, love, and holiness, with good sense" (verse 15). Welllllll, you'll just have to listen!

Women In Ministry - pt. 7, SILENCE! NO TEACHING or AUTHORITY

October 5th, 2019

Jay the Truth Barista and Amazing Larry continue their Friday coffee break Bible study on Women in Ministry by going through Apostle Paul's advice to his protege' Pastor Tim regarding an unruly woman in his congregation. What was meant to be a personal correction to a disruptive ill-informed teacher has been mistakenly applied to Christian women in general. Check it out!

Women In Ministry - pt. 6, SILENCE! NO TEACHING or AUTHORITY

September 27th, 2019

Jay the Truth Barista and Amazing Larry move on to another problem scripture found in 1 Timothy, "but with good works, as is proper for women who profess to worship God. A woman is to learn quietly with full submission. I do not allow a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; instead, she is to remain quiet." (1 Timothy 2:10-12) WHAT? All women are to shut up when in church? They are to remain silent and submissive? Well, take a listen to find out how to unravel this very difficult passage!

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.)
