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.

In today's preview we discuss Monday's show, and football with the Redheaded Ringer. 

Sep 12, 2016

In this show we discuss college life and marriage. What defines a marriage? At what point are two people considered married? Is it when you have a ceremony, or is it after you consummate the marriage? There are two types of marriages in this one. One is defined by the state, the other is defined by the Bible. Are the two the same?

In the episode we have a conversation with a group at Northwestern State University in Louisiana. A young lady and gentlemen who are starting a podcast called "the needle." The purpose of the podcast is to discuss college life and the Gospel. It was interesting to discuss the lives of college students who are on fire for Christ and seek to glorify Christ with everything they do.

There is a lot in the media today worthy of discussion. In "Football and the Glory of God," we first discuss Colin Kaepernick. How should we respond to him protesting the American Flag? Kaepernick is a backup quarterback for the San Fransisco Forty-Niners. He has decided to protest by sitting down during the National Anthem. He is doing this because of the oppression of the African-American people in the United States. As Christians, what is our proper response?

We left that conversation to then discuss the Glory of God. How much of the Glory of God can we know? A.W. Pink said that when we see the power of God, he hides more of his Glory than he reveals. How amazing is the idea that what we can see of God, there is infinitely more that is hidden? Yet, it is even more amazing that he will seek us out and save us.

On the Friday Preview we discussed football, Jesus and up coming trips. 

Aug 29, 2016

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.

Aug 26, 2016

On this Friday Preview we discuss the upcoming episode on politics. We then discuss beards, and proper care for them. 

Aug 21, 2016

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

Aug 14, 2016

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.

Aug 1, 2016

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.

In this show, we are talking to the police. The Laymen's hearts are heavy this week. With everything that went on in Louisiana, Minnesota and then in Dallas, our hearts ache for those lost. On today's show we spent time talking with an officer from Georgia, and our own Kemp, who also works as a police officer.  We wanted to talk through what a week like this means for our men and women who protect us on a daily basis. Also, we wanted to know how to pray for our police officers. What he said was to pray for wisdom, for their psychological health, and that may be a servant in need.

This FP we preview we discussed the upcoming Golf Tournament and our further discussion with Matt. 

Jul 3, 2016

In today's episode, it's the Laymen versus a Texan. A friendly debate, five men seeking the truth. In this episode we had a great conversation with Matt, who is one of the authors of http://douloicristou.com. This is a blog about theology. What is great is that Matt disagrees with us, but ends up having great conversation about salvation. We walk through Paul's soteriology -  his theology of salvation. There are two distinct views. The Laymen would say that all the responsibility of salvation is on God. Romans 3 tells us that no one can responds to God. Matt, believes that it is up to the person is to respond to salvation. He he uses the example of Noah and Abraham.

On this Friday Preview we have some guys come by the studio and help us celebrate a year. Monday's show we had great conversation with a blogger who use to be a Calvinist. http://www.douloicristou.com This is our friends Matt and Billy's blog. Go check it out. 

 

Jun 27, 2016

Do Denominations matter? The four of us are Southern Baptist, we attend a SBC church and support SBC missions, but does it matter. The main question we ask is, do denominations bring unity or division? It is easy to see from the outside that Christians obviously can't get stuff together because none of them can agree. In any given street in a small town, you will see a Methodist church, a Baptist church, Presbyterian Church, etc, etc. Do these churches work together in providing unity, or do they exist to provide division amongst the body of Christ.

On this Friday Preview we have some fun with Bible and NBA trivia. Who can stump Elisha in NBA trivia? 

Jun 20, 2016

This ended up being a great episode because we did what we alway do, we discussed why theology matters. In this discussion we began to reflect on Genesis. A question asked was "were Adam and Eve the only people created, or were there others?" There are two main views on this. One is that Adam and Eve were the only ones created, and every other human came from them. The second view is that God created other people. When we get a view outside of the garden, we notice in Genesis that other people are there. Where did they come from? Are they all Eve's children?

Who will endure to the end? In this episode we discuss the call from God and what that means. Every time we share the Gospel with someone there is a call.  Does that call determine the elect? There is also an effectual call, that is when the elect realize the Gospel and respond to it. Are both calls them same?  Can people be in the fold of Christ and not be in the elect? 

These are some tough questions and we went off the cuff in this episode and tried to answer some of them. We spend time in the in Bible and discussing John 15, and sought to determine the different calls. One thing we know for sure is that the Bible tells us that those who endure to the end will be saved. 

We had a special guest on the show as well. Drew Meyer is going to serve CRU as a campus pastor. If you are willing to help him out, contact him at drew.meyer@cru.org.

On today’s show we went back the classic. We drank Peet’s Major Dickson. If you like good, dark coffee, you can’t beat it, and the plus is that you can go to any big box store and find it. We’ve been drinking some light stuff lately, we wanted to get back to the dark roast. It did not disappoint.
