Laymen's Cup Podcast

The Laymen are four men, who love God first, then their wives and children. We have a deep desire to study God’s Word and to live on mission for him. As we study God’s Word, we love to break it down and discuss it in a way that everyone can understand. We are not scholars, even though some of us wish we were. We are normal men with normal jobs trying to figure out how to Glorify God and live a life on mission for him.

As Christians, how are we supposed to engage with people on social media? The vast majority of us are on social media. If you are on social media for just a little bit you will find a people who disagree with your worldview. Should we debate them on that platform? This the question that we discuss in this episode. 

Another question raised is, can you convince someone they are wrong when you debate them on Facebook or Twitter? There are always going to be trolls. Trolls are people who are intolerant and seek out to belittle people of different viewpoints. It is alway hard to debate with those guys because they are not there to listen, they are there to insult. But when faced with trolls, remember, we are to represent Christ in all we do, even on social media.

There is a problem of evil. The idea of the problem of evil goes like this, if God is all loving, and all powerful, but allows evil to happen, then is he truly all loving and all powerful? The is the oldest atheist argument. Many atheists use this argument to prove that God does not exist. The problem, though, is not with evil, it is our idea of evil. People are convinced that evil is something. In fact, it isn't something that can be grasped, instead it is a lack of something.

In this episode, the laymen had a great time breaking down the definition of evil and the proper view of it. How do we as Christians justify evil in the world? All these question can be explained through a proper understand of evil and bringing it to light in the Bible.

The Laymen this week started to discuss a book called “The 12 What Abouts: Answering Common Objectives God’s Sovereignty and Election.” In this book the author, John Samson, breaks down twelve questions people have about election and the Sovereignty of God. You can find this book in our book store, just follow the link in the menu.

2nd Peter 3:9 says “The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.” Does the verse prove election is not true? Well, of course not, but what is the proper understanding of this verse? In today’s show we discuss what is the author of this book says about this verse, and if he is right or not.

Homeschool verses Public School? Which one should you choose? In this episode the Laymen discuss why they chose the education they do for their children. For Patrick, he chose homeschooling, Shaun and Kemp chose public school, and for Wes, it still up in the air. The guys had a good time discussing which ones they choose and why. One area the agreed on is that there is no wrong answer. Patrick doesn't think Shaun is a bad father for choosing public school, and Shaun doesn't think Patrick is a fanatic for choosing homeschooling. The right decision is the one that you make for your family.

We also would like to shout out to Mothers. We spent sometime in this episode talking to one of the Mom's of the Laymen. Happy Mother's day to all of the Moms out there. Thank you for all the work you do.

Discipling children is the most important task a parent can do. We are called and equipped to raise our children in Christ. With some parents today they leave that responsibility to the church. "That is the job children's pastor, or the youth pastor" is their mindset. The Laymen believe it is our responsiblity as parents to disciple our children in Christ. For this episode we brought in a special guest. Pastor Jeff is the children's pastor of Denver Baptist church. He helped us discuss this issue in depth.
