The Testimony of a Missionary

1023666_1511482576397The 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.

What does HB2 really mean?

CuP_3002Our 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.

How to Engage Our Culture with Dr. Frank Turek

frank-300x200In 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.

Why Pray for the Lost?

CuP_2965
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?
