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.

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.

Do we have free will? Free will is the ability to make decisions on our own. The opposite of free will is the providence of God. Providence says that God has control over every aspect of life. A speck of dust does not move without the hand of God controlling it. These two seem to be at odds with one another. So which is true, do we have free will, or does God control everything?

There has been many episode we do that have encourage us, this one will stick out as one of my favorites. We dove into scripture and searched out the truth, and founded. In this preview we discuss about the episode that comes out Friday. 

May 30, 2016

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 have a special announcement for an upcoming event. Come join us on July 30th. 

May 15, 2016

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.

A short Friday preview discussing Monday's show on 2nd Peter 3:9, also a little hint of whats to come.

May 8, 2016

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.

May 1, 2016

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.
