Coffee with Creamer, where you get to sit down with our host, Dr. Barry Creamer, for a conversation about faith, life, and culture. We’ll look at old ideas through a new lens, turn the culture wars on their head, and paint a picture of the way things could be. If you like your thinking deep, and your coffee hot, pull up a chair—you’re in the right place.
Finding God Where We Lost Him
We walk through Psalm 42, surrounded by desert, crying out in thirst. As we do, Barry reminds us that there are actually no deserts with God and what we must do is open our eyes to his provision. Hope is strong enough to quench our thirst here and now. Scriptures: Psalm […]
Resurrection and the Paranormal
What do the Chupacabra, the return of JFK Jr., and the resurrection have in common, Barry asks. Hopefully, nothing. Barry reminds us that the strength or passion of our faith isn’t as important as its object. A believer’s devotedness to both the return of Elvis and the resurrection isn’t doing us any favors. […]
Sorry Not Sorry: Part Three
Barry finishes up the series on forgiveness and repentance, keeping in mind that knowing the destination is forgiveness doesn’t make the journey simple. This episode focuses on how the offended and community deal with offenders, pointing out that mercy does not have to mean enabling. Scriptures: Psalm 119:165 Matt 7:1 1 […]
Sorry Not Sorry: Part Two
Barry continues our series about repentance and forgiveness, providing a few examples from Scripture. These examples help us describe the differences between regret, remorse, restitution, repentance, and resignation for violator, violated, judges, society, and God. Scriptures: Matt 27:3-5 Psalm 51:3-4 Luke 19:1-10, 3:7-14 Article: “The Southern Baptist Horror” (https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2022/05/southern-baptist-evangelical-allegations-cover-up/629954/)
Sorry Not Sorry: Part One
Barry begins a conversation about the complexities of repentance and forgiveness and reminds us that we need enough humility to acknowledge that our responses won’t be perfect, but enough faith that we can make a difference as we go about the business of both. Scripture: Exodus 22:1-4
Silent Faith, Holy Night
Barry reminds us that while we, as believers, are (hopefully) longing, praying, and yearning for what has not yet arrived in the world, God’s faithfulness has already been at work to bring about our redemption. This was true of his first advent as a babe and will be true of his second as King. […]
Wow! This is an amazing podcast.
Well done, even if Rob Collingsworth doesn’t listen, ever.
Prepare to be challenged!
Criswell College President Barry Creamer offers a perspective that will challenge you to think beyond your own worldview, while at the same time offering biblical responses to the affairs of our day.
Dr. Creamer is a scholar and pastor for our time
I’ve learned more about my life, the Lord, and politics from Dr. Creamer and Criswell College than any other person, scholastic organization, or media outlet. Balanced, biblical, and pastoral, Dr. Creamer is interested in changing our thinking, not merely for the sake of changing, but so that we become fuller, more glorified versions of who we were always supposed to be.
