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, we are in a political nightmare. This show describes the Christian's political plight. We have several options for this election. One, is to not vote. For most of us, this is not a real option. We believe it is our duty as faithful men and women to exercise our right to vote. Another view is to vote for one of the two candidates that we have. One view that is discussed is for us to vote for Trump. Even though we cannot vouch for his character, this view says he is the only true option that we have, because having Clinton as president would destroy this country. The other option that is discussed is to vote either third party or for a write in candidate. Ones who hold to this belief say that they are going to vote for a person they believe has character, and it does not matter if they have a chance to win. Either option you think is best, there is one thing for sure, we are in trouble.

What is required to be saved? We know that Jesus did all the work on the cross to provide salvation for us, but how much knowledge does a person need to know to be saved? There is a term in theology called "Inclusivism." People who hold to this view point believe that a person can be saved through general revelation. This idea states that if a person goes outside and says "what a beautiful creation, there must be someone who created it," that is enough knowledge to save them. As long as there is faith in God, that alone can save them.

In this episode we discuss the problems with Inclusivism. We believe that a person cannot be saved without the knowledge of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We believe that no one is going to be saved unless they are a part of the elect, and if they are the elect, God will be able to get the gospel to them. "Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved." Romans 10:13

In this episode we had at the privilege of discussing oneness with God, with Dave Hickman, the author of Closer than Close: Awakening to the Freedom of Your Union with Christ. Dave went to Montreat College where he received his B.A. in Bible and Religion and then received his MDIV from Gordon-Conwell Seminary. He is the founder of Charlotte/One which empowers local churches to reach out to the 20-30 something group. You can find more about him at davehickman.org.

The book Closer than Close: Awakening to the Freedom of Your Union with Christ discusses the relationship we have with God. Dave was told as a child that one must have a relationship with Christ, and that he needed to be close with God, but no one told him what close was. In the book he discusses how one needs to have a union with Christ. Striving to have a relationship with him causes a work based relationship. Go, and check out the website and read the book.

It is so important to be able to contend for the faith. The last few weeks we had some great conversations with guys who believe differently then us. In this show we spend sometime discussing these interviews. First, were the Texans at http://douloicristou.com. These were two guys who write a blog, and went on a journey from Calvinism to Arminianism. They believe that if a person has faith in God through general revelation, that they can be saved. After the interview Wes spent time reading their "Master Plan." Wes has written a rebuttal to their arguments, that will soon be posted to our blog.

Next, we had a great time discussing the difference between Christianity and the Nation of Islam. We had a great time talking to Yusuf Muhammad about the differences and what we believe the Bible says. There are huge differences in what we believe, and what we believe the Bible to says about the chosen people of God. We had a great time discussing with these guys, and great engagement from it.
