True Riches With The Mission Men – What Is The Gospel?

Big Rob is on the far right. It was Rob who encouraged us (the fellas who all would later attend different churches) to go to the mission, have our own men's bible study, home church, radio show...and those were just the few of the things I jumped in on!

I want to repost some of our old Mission Men episodes. As we remember the passing of our Brother Rob, perhaps no other episode captures his essence more than this one. Rob is our host this episode, and is running the team like a point guard, as the show only aired for less than 15 minutes.

This one is also special to me because my son Reggie joined the team.

 

Please check it out as Rob leads us with his favorite topic, The Gospel.

Mission Men Message by Dion: Seek Ye First The Kingdom Of God

MissionMen Logo_new_Watermark

It’s been a while since we’ve had the opportunity to post and record a message from New Life Rescue Mission. But last month we got back on track with our man Dion coming through with his digital recorder.

Please check out this fantastic message titled: Seek Ye First The Kingdom of God.

This is not an easy message to stand up and give to a bunch of men who have no home. You’re telling them to seek God and His righteousness instead of a home, money, and food?

Well, that’s what God said in Dion’s main text: Matthew 6:19-34

CLICK HERE to listen.

Lay Up Treasures in Heaven

19“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and ruste destroy and where thieves break in and steal, 20but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

22“The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light, 23but if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!

24“No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.f

25“Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 26Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life?g 28And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, 29yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? 31Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. 33But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.

34“Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

CSD Rewind: Is God Truly Righteous…When He Allows Innocent Children To Die?

MissionMen Logo_new_Watermark

After the tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut where 20 children and 7 adults lost their lives to the senseless act of a 20-year old killer on December 14, 2012, I think it is about time to repost a show we did over at True Riches With The Mission Men.

In this show, we asked the question, is God truly righteous?

Sadly, many people ask the question that if God exists or is good, how can he let young children die and be killed? How could something like this happen beyond his control?

However, this evil shooting should actually draw us closer to the need for a Savior, not push us further away. But for many, events like this are an excuse to move further away.

If there is no God, there is no absolute right or wrong.

If there is no absolute right or wrong, how can we make a moral judgement about the actions of Adam Lanza (Newtown, CT), James Holmes (Aurora, CO), Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold (Columbine, CO)? By what standard to we determine right or wrong? If we are all allowed to do what we feel is right, what if killing is right in our own eyes?

For the Atheist, how can Man ever cure its propensity for what seems to be unimaginable evil (or at least what we cultural determine is evil, and we know that what is evil in one society is not in another, so is it really evil)?

If you wonder where God was on December 14th and felt he was not in Sandy Hook Elementary, or you want to be able to answer that question for others, please take the time to check out the short episode at:

For those who pray, let us continue to do so for the people in that community.

CornerstoneDad on True Riches With The MissionMen: What Is Going On In the Church That You Are Considering?

 

So you think you may have found a church, or at least a church that may make your short list.

But what’s going on in there? What are they practicing?

Join me and Mission Man Ron, as we discuss some other things to look for in your church search.

Are they focusing on the physical more than the spiritual?

What are they seeking, fleecing your wallet or feeding the flock?

Does the pastor have a Cadillac?

Do they only take care of the “elite”?

Do church officials have so many titles in their name, that their own momma’s don’t know what to call them?

Would the church treat you better if you introduced yourself as, “Reverend”?

Does the church have a proper understanding of healing and prosperity?

That’s just a little of what we discussed in the fast-fifteen that we call, True Riches With The Mission Men!

CornerstoneDad on True Riches With The MissionMen: How To Find The Right Church

 

How do you go about finding the right church for you and your family?

Do you just look in the Yellow Pages?

Aren’t all churches pretty much the same?

If I go to one Baptist church, can’t I just go visit another and feel at home because they are all about the same?

CornerstoneDad on True Riches With The Mission Men – Is Your Church Too Feminized?

I don’t know about you, but my dad was much more like this guy…
…than this guy!

 

Father’s Day is around the corner and I want you to do old CSD a favor.

Is the message different that what you heard on Mother’s Day?

If your Mother’s Day message praised and exalted motherhood, do you expect the Father’s Day message to do the same?

Unfortunately, in many churches that I’ve belong to, the exact opposite happened. Father’s were lectured, told they needed to do more, and made-fun-of like and talked about like they are Homer Simpson more than Joseph, the earthly father of Jesus.

What is going on? Why don’t men go to church? Why are women having to drag men to church?

Check out this two part series on True Riches With The Mission Men and leave us your comments.

Are we way off? Right on the mark? Too sensitive? Is the problem worse than what we even discussed?
