Replacement Theology - Did the Church Replace Israel? NO!

June 21st, 2019

There comes a time to call out wrong theology, especially when it is so absolutely wrong. Replacement Theology is such a theology. Replacement theology (Supersessionism - to supersede - one thing being replaced or supplanted by another) "teaches that the people of Israel have forfeited their special status as the chosen people of God, and their replacement is the Church. The Church, then, is the new true Israel" (Ed Smelser, Bridges For Peace, Israel and the Church: God's Road Map, 186). Sure, that was easy to say after Jerusalem was destroyed and the Jewish people were dispersed in A.D. 70 and 135. But Replacement Theology was totally blown out of the water when the Jewish people began returning home in the late 1800s and throughout the 1900s, and Israel became a nation in 1948, and the Jewish people took Jerusalem in 1967. Still it hangs on today and has contributed to Christian Anti-Semitism and the most horrendous persecution of the Jews over the last 2,000 years. Take 30 mins and listen to Jay the Truth Barista and Amazing Larry discuss this crucial topic!

Resurrection - What’s the resurrection body like?

June 3rd, 2019

People spend bazillions of dollars to make their bodies look good and try to put off the aging process for as long as possible. But in the end, we end. However, in the last podcast, the Truth Barista and Amazing Larry talked about Jesus' promise of the believer's resurrection. Ok, great! But what will our new body be like? How similar or different will Body 2.0 be from our pre-death aging physical container? Why is it so important we get an upgraded body? Join Jay the Truth Barista and Amazing Larry as they discuss what the Apostle Paul has to say about this in the Bible!

Resurrection - the Biblical Truth

May 25th, 2019

Jesus' Resurrection from the dead...it's the cornerstone of our Christian faith. Without Jesus' resurrection, Paul says "...if Christ has not been raised, then our proclamation is in vain, and so is your faith" (1 Corinthians 15:14). Jesus' resurrection is our heavenly Father's assurance that His Son's sacrifice was accepted and the way back to His arms and back into His family is wide open! And Jesus' resurrection is an assurance that though we die, yet shall we live. This life is not the end! Take and listen and be encouraged!

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!
