This creative Podcast uses an imaginary coffeehouse as the setting to talk about the issues facing our day. The Truth Barista is Pastor Jay Christianson, who is fluent in the Hebrew Traditions of the Bible and uses his knowledge to bring clear insights to bear upon the issues that define our day. The Podcast is humorous yet clearly instructive as The Truth Barista and Amazing Larry (Larry Kutzler) tackle the tough issues facing Christians today.
Jay and Larry discuss Robert Schumacher’s article “Perfect Christians Wear Me Out.” What does it mean to be perfect? Does it mean an untroubled, problem-free life? Is that even possible?
What does it mean that Jesus’ “nickname” is Emmanuel, God With Us? Jay and Larry discuss this and how it pertains to Christians in these uncertain days with the changes COVID has brought to our culture.
Jay the Truth Barista and Larry continue their deep dive into the topic of modern-day prophets and prophecy. The essence of prophecy is hearing God. So how do we develop our spiritual hearing?
Prophets and prophecy are well accepted in the Bible. But what about today? There’s much controversy surrounding this topic in light of the recent “President Trump prophecies” that seem to have been wrong. So how do we handle modern-day prophets and prophecy?
Jay and Larry discuss the puzzling command, “Don’t grieve God’s Holy Spirit” found in Ephesians 4:30. What does grieving the Holy Spirit mean and how can Christians keep from doing so? The context of Ephesians 4:17-32 is the key!
Nagging is bad behavior. In fact, nagging can kill a relationship, especially a marriage. But did you know Jesus’ followers have a license to nag our Heavenly Father? Your prayer life may never be the same!
Jay and Larry continue their discussion of the tumultuous events of January 6, 2021. How should Christians respond? What about the so-called Trump prophecies? What is the Lord’s best guidance for us?
Jay the Truth Barista and Amazing Larry continue their talk with Karl Gertz. Karl shares his personal struggles with Multiple Sclerosis and the remarkable things God is doing for him!
Jay the Truth Barista and Amazing Larry continue their talk about how to be a Daniel in a Nebuchadnezzar’s Court. In other words, what should we Christians do if we find ourselves facing an anti-God, anti-Christian government? How should we live to maintain our faithful and loving witness for the Lord?
There is a rising tide of totalitarian rule around the world. It is already happening in the U.S. as well. So how should Christians in the U.S. respond should we find ourselves under a despotic government? Daniel is a great example for us to follow!
