CornerstoneDad Podcast – Mixtape #1 Open Letter To J-ICE…(And It’s Minivan Friendly)

Is Rap Changing Your Theology

After a long time away, I’m finally back with a podcast.

But not just any podcast, but a mix to my grandson J-ICE.

Old-school hip-hop heads know that bouncing with some hard beats is always a challenge, even with rap pre-1995. My son likes to roll with tunes that were out when he was still in a car seat, and is now facing that challenge when he’s rolling with my grandson.

I’ll post up the playlist pretty soon, but for now, just turn up that bass, grab the kids, grab your bible, and lets ride…

CornerstoneDad Podcast #15 – Reggie’s First Sermon: The Sin Line

If we were to take this photo again today, Reg would be one of the tallest in the shot instead of being "the little guy". Rob is with the Lord now, but I couldn't help but think of how proud he would be been of Reg as well.

As we wrap up our time here in our area, our days of going to the mission in our city are coming to an end. My boys have spent much time there and I’ve been asking my 16-year-old for about a year if he ever wanted to speak.

Praise God, this time, he said he was ready, and you can listen to the message HERE.

So many times we get more excited about our kid’s sports achievement, than we do about their spiritual lives. However, lets tell the truth, we get excited about how fast they run, hit, throw, swim, etc., because of the pride it brings us and the possibility of riches. We forget about

Matthew 6:21:For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also

and

Ecclesiastes 5:10: Whoever loves money never has enough;
    whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with their income.
    This too is meaningless.

Yes indeed, it is truly meaningless. It would be much more difficult for our children to follow Christ making $10M per year and fame than $35K per year teaching in a school.

But 1 Cor. 9:24-25 says:

Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it. Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable.  

I’m so very proud of my son, and I thank God for his grace in allowing me to see him grow more as a brother in Christ, as he grows into the man that God wants him to be.

If we were to take the above photo again today, Reg would be one of the tallest in the shot instead of being “the little guy”. Rob is with the Lord now, but I couldn’t help but think of how proud he would be been of Reg as well.

CornerstoneDad Bible Family Reading Podcast #4: 1 Thessalonians 1

Today, Big Homie leads us today with a reading of Paul’s letter to the church in Thessalonica. 

To listen, CLICK HERE!

Did you know:

Purpose & Background

Church established by Paul; Paul forced to leave quickly

Some Thessalonians questioning Paul’s credentials.  Others worried about dying before Jesus returns.

…fierce persecution arose and the believers smuggled Paul out of the city in the night.  Because Paul left abruptly and without having spent much time among them, he had never finished teaching the basic matters of Christianity, and the church’s foundations were not complete and solid.  Several strange problems had grown up after his premature departure.  Apparently, some individuals in Thessalonica opposed this new religion by accusing Paul of being a money-grubbing self-promoter.  As soon as circumstances became difficult, they said, he snuck out of town.  There were also doctrinal difficulties.  Chiefly, The Thessalonians worried that if a Christian died before Christ returned, he or she would be lost forever.  So Paul sent Timothy to find out how the Thessalonian church was doing – if they still held to the word they’d heard from him.  Timothy has returned with a good report, and so Paul writes this letter around 51 AD to defend his ministry among them, clarify basic doctrine about death and the Second Coming, and reassure the Thessalonians with hope.

CornerstoneDad Podcast #13 – Is Purity A Realistic or Idealistic Goal For Kids Today? Panel Discussion With The Family

WeAreFamily

This Is It!

This podcast is guaranteed to make my “Best of” show one day! I’m finally pleased to post part one of this terrific hot-mic discussion that I had with my wife, mother, sister, son, and his friend. Folks, this is our family and this is how we often talk when we get together, so consider it a “reality-show podcast”.

This is part one of our discussion, so in this episode we discuss:

Is purity even a realistic goal for young people to have in today’s society?

Is the current generation less pure than the baby-boomer generation?

Do women really give thought to the kind of father that they want for their children before laying down with a man?

Warning: Parental discretion is advised. I understand that some may not have talked to their children about sex or many of the subjects that we are going to discuss. Therefore, listen first, and determine if it’s age appropriate for your family.

CornerstoneDad Podcast #12 – CSD On The M-I-C With J-Sizzle

Broke-athletes

We have someone new joining the podcast, J-Sizzle!

J and I tried to limit our discussion to three topics, but we could barely make it. However, we still tried to catch up on some great topics that we’ve had on our minds that include:

  • ESPN’s 30-for-30: BROKE – We ponder the question, how could all of these athletes end up broke after making millions of dollars?
  • “I’d like to thank my lord and savior”…wait, what did Jamie Foxx just say? Did he say Barack Obama?
  • J-Sizzle answers the question that I will now ask every dad that appears on this show. He’s truly setting the bar high for the men that he comes in contact with, but what would your answer be to this all important question?

So tune in, check it out here
