Popular Mainstream Rapper Kendrick Lamar Says: ‘Because of the State of the World My Next Album Will FOCUS On God’ By Henry Talker


Popular Mainstream Rapper Kendrick Lamar Says: ‘Because of the State of the World His Next Album Will FOCUS On God. By Henry talker


In a recent interview with The New York Times, Lamar spoke about the creative direction for his upcoming album. He said “God” is the “biggest missing component in life” so that is who the album will be focused around.

“I think now, how wayward things have gone within the past few months, my focus is ultimately going back to my community and the other communities around the world where they’re doing the groundwork. ‘To Pimp a Butterfly’ was addressing the problem. I’m in a space now where I’m not addressing the problem anymore,” he told the outlet. “We’re in a time where we exclude one major component out of this whole thing called life: God. Nobody speaks on it because it’s almost in conflict with what’s going on in the world when you talk about politics and government and the system.”
Lamar reflected on his family, in particular his younger brothers and when asked if the record will focus solely on religion, he replied, “It’s very urgent.”

“At one point in time I may have a little girl who grows up and tells me about her engagements with a male figure — things that most men don’t want to hear. Learning to accept it, and not run away from it, that’s how I want this album to feel,” he concluded.

The 29-year-old has not released any further information about the direction of the new album but he will be joining the likes of Kanye West and Chance the Rapper by using his faith and religious themes in their music.
Lamar has infused his music in the past with examples of his faith. His albums Good Kid, m.A.A.d City featured prayers and to To Pimp A Butterfly talked about God in the song .
“How Much a Dollar Cost?”

After the 2017 Grammy Awards, Lamer also praised God for fellow emcee Chance the Rapper’s historic win, as the first streaming artist to win a Grammy. Chance shared a screengrab on Instagram of the message.

“Congrats bro. God is moving,” Lamar wrote in the message, to which Chance replied, “He is! Love you brother!”
A seven time Grammy award winner, Lamar has also spoken about his faith being rooted in the Bible many times, and his Love for God.

The last thing a 3-year-old Syrian said before he died: “I’m gonna tell God everything”

im-gonna-tell-God-everything

This picture is haunting and it’s been floating around the internet with the sentence:

The last sentence a 3-year-old Syrian said before he died: “I’m gonna tell God everything”

And that’s equally haunting.  It’s impossible to verify but the picture tells a story about the pain and suffering that exists in Syria right now.  There are many in the media who would like to say this is because president Bashar al-Assad is a ruthless killer.  And that’s half true.  Like other government leaders – he has engaged in war and with that war has come the death of tens of thousands and the displacement of over 1 million Syrians now living in refugee camps.

But this hasn’t always been the case.  This is the inevitable result of a covert war being waged by the U.S., Israel and other Sunni countries like Qatar and Saudi Arabia.  Our interests in taking down the Syrian dictator al-Assad are all about geo-politics.  If we take out Syria – we neuter Iranian influence in the region.  It has gotten so bad that al-Qaeda is now fighting on the same side as the United States government and Bashar al-Assad and his government are fighting al-Qaeda.  And Syrians are all the victim of this massive global covert proxy war.

It has gotten to the point where we don’t even know if the chemical weapons that were used in Syria were the result of al-Qaeda or the Syrian government.  When it comes to matters of intelligence and propaganda – it’s very hard to discern truth from fiction.  But no one can deny that Syria was a very stable country until we decided to go in all guns blazing.  We’re not bringing democracy to the world – that’s the sound of imperialism baby.

Does God Care Who Won the Super Bowl?

Super Bowl

More than 100 million people watched the Seahawks defeat the Broncos yesterday, but New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady wasn’t one of them. Brady says that since his team lost to the Broncos in the AFC Championship game, “I could care less about watching the game.”

Did God care who won the game?

According to the Public Religion Research Institute, half of all Americans think the Lord influences the outcome of sporting events. The percentage includes those who pray for God to help their team win (26 percent), think their team has been cursed (25 percent), or believe that God is involved in determining who wins (19 percent). Some 33 percent of football fans pray for God to help their team win. Sixty-two percent of white Evangelicals think God helps religious athletes; paradoxically, even one-fifth of those with no religious affiliation agree.

What does this phenomenon say about us?

Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning wrote an autobiography in 2001. In it, he says that he prays “to keep both teams injury free, and personally, that I use whatever talent I have to the best of my ability. But I don’t think God really cares about who wins football games, except as winning might influence the character of some person or group. Besides, if the Colts were playing the Cowboys and I prayed for the Colts and Troy Aikman prayed for the Cowboys, wouldn’t that make it a standoff?”

Why do so many Americans disagree? We have a transactional religion we inherited from the Romans. They sacrificed to Mars before going into battle; we go to church on Sunday so God will bless us on Monday. We give money so God will bless our money and start the day with prayer so God will bless our day. Apparently some of us pray for our football team in the same transactional way.

Perhaps we think this is the kind of piety God wants from us, that the Lord of the universe is pleased when we take time from our busy schedules to pray and rewards us in kind. Or maybe we are simply checking all the boxes, a “no atheists in foxholes” kind of thing.

Either way, we can do better. Christianity is not a transactional religion but a transformational relationship. Jesus wants all of us so he can transform all of us (2 Corinthians 5:17). Not just for Sunday football, but for Monday life.

Who won the Super Bowl in 2012? (The New York Giants—I had to look it up.) Two years from now, who will remember the winner of yesterday’s game? But your next act of surrendered obedience to your Lord will echo forever. This is the promise, and the invitation, of God.

Waiting On God Doesn’t Mean We Don’t Do Anything

Active_Work_Waiting_God

 

It seems to have become acceptable in Christian circles to say things like, “I’m waiting for God to direct me as to my next move” or “I can’t do this without God, so I really need to pray about this some more.”

While there is often truth in these statements, perhaps you, like me, have grown tired of hearing clichés like this tossed about constantly. Or perhaps you recognize yourself saying something similar to this, and aren’t sure what the problem is.

In Matthew 25:14-30, there is the parable of the master who gives his servants bags of gold and asks them to invest the gold for him. This parable is often called the “Parable of the Talents,” and it is aptly named because the bags of gold are not meant to represent money but rather resources.

Before we were born, God carefully and consciously selected for us resources for our lives’ journeys. These resources include our distinctive personalities, our amazing brains and the way we think, our heart and our passions, worldly talents we can use to create a livelihood for ourselves and various spiritual gifts.

 

Before we were born, God carefully and consciously selected for us resources for our lives’ journeys.

Like the last servant in the parable, we sometimes take the resource given to us and hide them in the ground. When the servant was called to account over why he hadn’t invested the resource given to him and returned it with interest, his response was “I was afraid” (Matthew 25:25). If we are honest with ourselves, this is often why we neglect using the resources God has given us—because we too are afraid.

 

What are we afraid of? We’re afraid of failure, of making mistakes—because so many of us still have this mental image of an old, stern, white-haired God sitting in the clouds keeping a tally of our wrongdoings all day.

So instead of moving forward, we say “I’m waiting for God to tell me what to do,” because then if it doesn’t work out it isn’t our fault. Or perhaps—even worse—we don’t ever make a firm commitment to anything and keep sitting on the fence, thinking, “I can’t get it wrong if I don’t commit myself one way or the other.”

This latter option is the one the final servant took. When his master found out what he had done, he replied, “You wicked, lazy servant!” (Matthew 25:26). If this seems like a harsh reprimand, consider this: The one talent that the servant received was said to be the equivalent of about 20 years’ worth of wages for a day laborer at that time.

This is how much God gives to us in spiritual resources for our life: the value of 20 years worth of wages! We are born into a state of such abundance, so though we should rely on God for power and strength, we should not mope around like helpless victims who need step-by-step instructions from God.

God is the ultimate creative being—the one who made the beauty of the entire universe and the awe-inspiring intricacies of the human body—and He is asking you to be creative too, to recognize that you can claim the resources given to you, and create masterpieces, too.

No masterpiece can be created without a risk, without the boldness and willingness to be wrong, to learn as you go and to claim your own power and admit your own responsibility. What we don’t realize is that God expresses Himself through us, but if we are not moving, we aren’t allowing Him to use us.

So how can we step up and live from a place of personal responsibility, not spiritual victimhood? There are three simple things each of us can do starting today that will help create this vital paradigm shift.

Firstly, change the way you pray. Pray humbly, but from a place of empowerment rather than lack. This is a fine line to walk, but what I mean is rather than asking God to tell you exactly what steps to take, thank Him for the wisdom He has already given you, and ask for discernment as you move forward. And then move forward in faith. This is the prayer of a child of God who is claiming their inheritance and birthright, and it is the prayer of someone who is choosing to be accountable for their actions.

Although God is constantly speaking to us, we do not need to have moment-by-moment instructions from Him to know His will.

Secondly, share your good works with the world. Although God is constantly speaking to us, we do not need to have moment-by-moment instructions from Him to know His will. Galatians 5:22-23 has already outlined for us what the fruit of the spirit look like: “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.”

Note the second part of that text: against such things there is no law. This means that if we are acting in accordance with love, kindness and self-control, for instance, we can be assured that we are doing God’s will, whether or not God directly spoke to us and specifically told us to take that action.

Thirdly, don’t allow yourself to get paralyzed looking for your “calling.” By all means pray, but don’t let your praying trap you into a state of paralysis. Instead sit down over coffee with a close friend or a career counsellor and make a list of what you are passionate about and what you are good at (friends are especially useful here, as often they can more readily identify our skills than we can). Then look at the common themes between what you are passionate about and good at, and think of how you could use them to address a community or world problem.

Once you do this, you will be overwhelmed with options for all the amazing ways you can start to make the world a better place and share God’s love. Then start something, anything!

There are already enough Christians burying their talents in the ground where they can’t be seen or used. Let’s start a new trend: one where Christians are known as people of action and change and living demonstrations of their faith. Who’s in?

North Korean Christians Pray for ‘Free’ Christians to ‘Realize God is All You Need’ – Angela Lu

One of the first things Eric Foley, the co-founder of Seoul USA, learned about the North Korean underground church is that it is not a group to be pitied. About 10 years ago Foley asked a member of the underground church how he could pray for them. He recalls the North Korean’s response, “You, pray for us? We pray for you … because South Korean and American churches believe challenges in the Christian faith are solved by money, freedom, and politics. It’s only when all you have is God do you realize God is all you need.”

Foley estimates about 100,000 Christians live in North Korea, with about a third of them in concentration camps. Unlike the Chinese underground church, North Korean Christians can’t risk gathering together because spies are everywhere. Instead, they worship in their own household or in the common areas, like while walking down the road out of earshot.

As North Korea fell under Communist rule after World War II, Christians realized they would soon face intense persecution. Some escaped to South Korea, where they could worship freely, but those who stayed chose four foundational pillars of Christianity they could pass on to future generations: theology through the Apostle’s Creed, prayer through the Lord’s Prayer, ethics through the Ten Commandments, and worship through the Lord’s supper. At least one of these elements is present in each of the North Korean underground churches.

To learn more about the Bible, Christians who are able to leave the country on work trips meet with missionaries and memorize Scripture to share with others. Physical copies of the Bible are rare for poor households, as government officials regularly check their homes. If officials find a Bible, the government will send the family to concentration camps or kill them. Seoul USA has been able to send Bibles over to North Korea using balloons — 50,000 Bibles dropped into the country this past year. The group also produces short-wave radio programs with North Korean defectors reading the Bible, as about 20 percent of North Koreans illegally own radios.

The government deems Christianity a threat because North Korea’s Juche ideology, which mixes Marxism with worship of the “Great Leader” Kim Il Sung and his family, is partially copied from Christianity. Kim, who attended church until eighth grade, took Christian concepts like the trinity, church services, and hymns and made it all about himself. If people found out about Christ, they’d see Kim and his lineage as the frauds they are.

With a zero-tolerance policy for Christianity, Christians are careful who they tell about their faith. They don’t reveal their belief to their spouses until years after marriage, and they can’t tell their children until they turn 15, as teachers are trained to extract such information from students.

Foley found that children of Christian families don’t even realize they’re sitting in an underground church meeting. One man said every week his grandfather would gather the family together and give them the same 10 pieces of advice. Later he realized his grandfather was passing down the Ten Commandments.

Foley has also met defectors who “know Bible stories told differently or some Christian songs. North Korean Christians are very careful to pass on the treasure and for their family members to guard it and only over time realize what it is.”

Members of the church have told Foley they see concentration camps as just another mission field — North Korean officials have had to separate Christians from other prisoners because they keep sharing the gospel. Faced with such danger, North Korean defectors are often disappointed with what they see in the South Korean church.

“They are sad to see the faith is very different from their own,” Foley said. “The North Korean faith life is built upon this idea of being faithful to carry out what God has given you to do even in the face of impossible opposition.”

While many South Korean and U.S. groups want to help North Korean Christians escape the country, defectors often have a hard to readjusting to their new homes: 16 percent of them end up committing suicide. Seoul USA sees its role as discipling the church in North Korea by providing resources like the radio and Bibles, as well as starting Underground University to train North Korean defectors to become missionaries to their own people.

So as churches gather for the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church (IDOP) on Nov. 3 (Nov. 10 for some churches and organizations), Foley hopes Western churches realize they have much to learn from their North Korean brethren.

“IDOP too often becomes pray for the poor persecuted Christian. We want to challenge that idea: Freedom in Christ is something you can have even in the darkest corner of the world.”
