Man, if it ain't one thing it's another! Blood moons, total solar eclipses, unique co-inciding of stars, planets, sun, and moon...that could only mean on thing! DOGS AND CATS, LIVING TOGETHER, MASS HSTERIA! In fact, during the recent "Great American Eclipse" MILLIONS of people drove to the line of total eclipse to watch a 2-minute event! They must think there's something to this! There's no denial, we have seen some interesting and rare celestial events. Many people, not just Christians, believe these as God-sent signs. Are they? What makes them genuine signs from heaven's throne room? If they are, why does God use such signs and what is He saying? Are the sign-seekers just blowing smoke to raise money and followers? Join the Truth Barista and Amazing Larry as they take on this controversial subject of the signs of the times - Bible Sense About Signs.

The Joy of Trials!

August 12th, 2017

"But mankind is born for trouble as surely as sparks fly upward." Do you know who spoke these words that were recorded in God's very word? Most of us know him and he would certainly know a thing or two about trials and troubles. Yup, it was Job! (Job 5:7) No one will ever escape the trials of life. They try to minimize them or avoid them, but trials will come or way. But there is a sunny side to trials! (Yeah, right!) no really, there is. In fact, trials are one of God's best ways of shaping us into the people he wants us to be. (Yeah? Well I wish He were a little less interested in me right now!) Having trouble and trials, my friend? Take a listen and take comfort. Trials don't last forever, but what we gain from them does.

Tough Issues: Faith, Doubt, And Unbelief, pt 4 - Unbelief

June 23rd, 2017

What's the opposite of faith? Not doubt. It's NO faith. As the Truth Barista and Larry discussed in the previous episode, doubt is not knowing if God is greater than what your facing or not. Unbelief is the stubborn refusal to trust God. Unbelief is SOOOOOOO serious, that it is the one sin that is called the Unforgiveable Sin...IF you choose to hold onto it. Join the Truth Barista as he and Amazing Larry talk about this extremely challenging topic and wrap up this series on Tough Issues: Faith, Doubt, and Unbelief.

Tough Issues: Faith, Doubt, And Unbelief, pt 3 - Doubt

June 16th, 2017

If you think the average person struggles with doubt - try being a Christian! What makes doubt so difficult is the inner sense of guilt because we KNOW we're not supposed to doubt God and yet it can be a daily challenge for some of us. This only intensifies when we're in really painful or even life-threatening situations. What is doubt? Doubt - "The state of being uncertain about the truth or reliability of something." "from Latin dubitāre, to waver" (American Heritage Dictionary). Are Christians allowed to doubt? How do we move from doubt to a concrete trust in God? Why are prayers stopped by doubt? Tune in to the Truth Barista as he and Amazing Larry continue their series on this all too challenging experience!

So...did the first episode about faith knock yer socks off? Well, the Truth Barista continues his discussion with Amazing Larry about this powerful and often misunderstood topic of faith.

Tough Issues: Faith, Doubt, and Unbelief, pt. 1

May 28th, 2017

"You know, if you just had enough faith, that wouldn't have happened to you!" Or "Agree with me in faith and God will answer your prayer!" Is faith a slot-machine or a passkey to get answers from God? Is it the cornerstone for miracle cures or insane amounts of wealth and prosperity? Some Christians would actually tell you that. Well, in this first part of a four-part series, the Truth Barista would say...?

The Fruit of the Spirit - Self-control

May 7th, 2017

"Control myself? Are you kidding me?" That's exactly opposite of what our society tells us. In fact, advertising lives to tempt us to satisfy our every desire as quickly as possible. "Do it now! You're missing out if you don't! Why wait for marriage? Why deny yourself? Get that credit card and run it up!" Sound familiar? So exercise your self-control for a bt and listen to the Truth Barista as he and Amazing Larry discuss this powerful character trait of Jesus that the Holy Spirit wants to drill into us...often for our own safety.
