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.

The Laymen believe that we are to live our lives on mission. What that means it that in everything we do, we glorify Christ, and portray the Gospel. When we are at work, we live the Gospel. When we are with our friends, we live the Gospel. On today’s episode we have the great privilege of sitting down and hearing the testimony of one of the most Gospel centered ladies we have ever talked with.

Ms. Diane Smith gave up everything to live on mission for God. She was saved at an older age, and soon after that God started to put a burden on her heart to sell everything for Him, and after some persuasion, she sold everything to go and live on the mission field in Alabama.

One part of living on mission is that Ms. Diane must raise her own support. Everything that she raises goes to support her living expenses and her work with the people in Alabama. Please pray, and if you are able to give your support, please do. If you would like to support for Ms. Diane, please go and check out her website. http://msc.kintera.org/dianesmith. You can also email her at missionarydianesmith@cbasbc.org.

Our great state of North Carolina has been under attack recently. Ever since the state pasted what is now know as HB2, or House Bill 2, many have labeled NC as a bigot state that is prejudiced against the LGBT community. There are many who are upset because Bruce Springsteen decided to cancel a show scheduled in North Carolina. Even broadway shows have decided not to come to North Carolina because of this bill. What is the true meaning of the bill? In this show we respond to our democrat brothers, then find the true meaning behind this bill that is causing such in uproar in our beloved state.

The Laymen are involved in a fundraiser this week. We are going to a dinner on April 21st for the Pregnancy Care Center. If you would be willing to help us raise money, you can go to our support page and hit the donate button. Anything that is given to the show this week will go to support the PCC.

In this episode we had the great privilege of interviewing Dr. Frank Turek on how to engage our culture. Dr. Turek is a world renown Christian Apologist. He has authored and co-authored four books including Stealing from God:  Why Atheists Need God to make their CaseI Don’t Have Enough Faith to be an AtheistCorrect, Not Politically Correct and Legislating Morality. He is president of Cross Examined, an organization that goes to different college campuses and churches to give presentations on the existence of God. You can learn more at crossexamined.org.

We asked Dr. Turek about several topics, including North Carolina's HB2 case, evolution, and how to address our culture. Dr. Turek is what is known as an Evidential Apologist. He seeks out to prove the existence of God. He mentions on the show that you can believe in God without knowing the Bible. He seeks to get people to believe there is a God first, and then teaching them the evidence for Christ. If you haven't had a chance yet, make sure you get some of his books.

There are so many times we make plans and then they just do not happen. For instance, this week we planned for a few guest to show up and, well, they did not come. What do we do when a curve ball is thrown; we knock it out of the park! We do what laymen do;  we discussed different theological topics and had a great time!

One question that was asked was why pray for the lost? If we believe in unconditional election, do our prayers effect salvation? Here is one item in this discussion is that we do believe; that we are to pray for the lost. Paul tells us in Romans to do so, the discussion is what good do our prayers have?

On today's episode we had the privilege to sit down and talk with two Godly men and discuss politics. What brought these two men to the Cup, is that they vote democrat. It was interesting to sit down and have a true discussion about the differences and similarities between the Republican and Democratic parties.

Every time you turn on CNN or Fox News all you hear are the parties fighting over what seems like an insignificant maters. How many times have you heard civil conversations between the two different parties? Listen, and learn, and hopefully you will know what you believe politically and why.

Does Theology Matter? Why should the layperson care about theology? To help answer these questions we brought in a local Pastor, Morrie Lawing, from Christ Church. He is a leader in the Associate Reformed Presbyterian denomination.

Theology is the understanding of God. In a sense, everyone has a theology. For most, as long as the pastor knows theology that is good enough for them, but is that enough? It is important for every Christian to have a knowledge of theology. We are told by the Apostle Paul to stop drinking milk, and start on solid foods. He is saying that we should dig deeper into the Scriptures, and the more we dig in, the more we will understand theology.

On today's show we drank a cup of special coffee. I (Shaun) met the owner of this coffee company while in school at SEBTS. He and his wife lived in Uganda, and when they came back to the states they started Mukwano Coffee to support the people they lived with. We tried the Burundi coffee. It was a medium roast and went down smooth. Also, I promise, Matt, I will learn how to say it.

On this Friday we preview we discuss the upcoming episode on why theology matters. Don't miss out on the riddle that stump Kemp and Shaun.

Mar 13, 2016

"Living on mission" is a phrase Christians hear a lot. For most, it is what Missionaries, or pastors, or Church Planters do. In actuality, it is a calling for all Christians. In Matthew 28, Jesus tells us his last command, "Go, into the world, and make disciples." We believe that this is a calling for all Christians. The issue, how do we do that? How do we, Laymen, who work 60 hours a week, who have families, who are caught up in the business of life, live a life of mission?

This is a big question and to help us we brought in a friend of the show, Pastor Ken Furches. He is the Community Pastor at Denver Baptist. Pastor Ken tells us how to live the life we are called to, in ways that only he can.

Mar 6, 2016

What do you do when your guest does not show up? Well, you wing it. That is what we did on today’s episode. Make no mistake, this is a great show. On today’s show Kemp brought his wife and daughter by. This led to a discussion on equality and to the question of whether or not woman should be serve in combat, which lead to whether or not women should serve as a Pastor. If you say no, then what is the difference between a woman being a Missionary and a Pastor?

If you want to support the show, there are several ways to do it. First, and most importantly, please pray for us. Pray that God continues to lead us, and that he continues to use the show. If you want to support the show in other ways, you can go to our support page to learn how.

Feb 28, 2016

This is another "Straight out of Context" episode. This week we discuss Matthew 18:20 "For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them." I think every young Christian has taken encouragement in this verse and thought "when I sit down and pray or read my Bible with another person, God is present." Surely you have heard this verse read in a worship service before. Is this the context of the verse? When you begin to read it, start in verse 15, and read it in the context in which Jesus spoke. Something you will notice, Jesus says "If your brother or sisters sins..." This does not seem like he is discussing worship or your Bible Study.

Like most verses though, taking it in the context in which it is written is much more powerful. We as brothers and sisters need to have an authority and accountability in our lives. True love of a friend is giving that friend the ability to hold you accountable for your actions. We also need to give authority to our local church to hold us accountable, and when we step in sin, the church needs authority in correcting us. In the context of this verse we see the process of dealing with a brother or sister that has stepped into sin and how to handle the situation in a loving way.

Feb 21, 2016

Pornography has become a multi-billion dollar industry. The number of people who admit to watching porn goes up each year. This is a sin that has become very widespread. It a sin that destroys those who view it, slowly but surely. In this episode the guys bring back Pastor Chris of Denver Baptist Church to help us find a way to defeat this horrific sin.

They say that pornography is the most addictive sin; more addictive than drugs. That does not mean that is impossible to beat. The trick is find what we love more. That should be Jesus, because he has a surpassing love for us. When someone turns to him, he will help those who struggle in this sin.

In this episode we discuss the upcoming show that is coming out Monday the 22nd. 

Feb 15, 2016

In today's society we have a warped sense of sex. It is not something new. It actually started after the fall. When sin entered the world, the human's view of sex fell with it. How are we, as Christians, supposed to view sex? For most, it was taught in churches that it is some forbidden thing that should never be discussed, but in the world it is everywhere we look. There is not a commercial you can see or hear that doesn't have some sexuality to it. It is everywhere we look. We live in a hyper sexual culture. In this episode Pastor Chris stops by and helps the Laymen discover the proper view of sex.

Feb 8, 2016

Proverbs 22:6 says "Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it." We have all seen or heard of kids raised in the church and when they went out into the world they departed from everything they learned. What happened? Did the parents sin? Did they fail as a Christian parents? Hasn't the Bible promised this wouldn't happen? This is why it is important to not only get this verse right, but also have a correct understanding of the book of Proverbs. In this episode we discuss this verse and the ways we discipline and train our children. 

The Laymen would like to say Congratulations to Deathwish Coffee. They won a small business contest and had a thirty second commercial during the Super Bowl. If you haven't tried their coffee yet, do yourself a favor and go get some. You will not be disappointed.
