    7 Supplements for Faith

    7 Supplements for Faith

    How can practicing virtues like self-control and perseverance enhance one's faith?
    Faith is a multifaceted journey that involves continual growth and intentional enhancement, much like the physical supplements that many incorporate into their daily lives for better health. Rylee Meek and Christian Edwards, notable speakers at faith-based events, offer unique perspectives on how spiritual supplements can bolster one's faith journey. Rylee Meek emphasizes that accepting Jesus as Lord and Savior is just the beginning, advocating for the continuous supplementation of one’s faith to fully experience and maximize one's walk with God. Drawing a parallel to physical health, Meek likens spiritual supplements to necessary aids that improve our faith experience in a world where the "food supply" of spiritual nourishment can often be lacking. Similarly, Christian Edwards underscores the believer's responsibility to bring heaven's blueprint to earth, starting from salvation. He views these faith supplements as essential tools that enhance the essence of God within us, preparing believers for both an enriching earthly experience and an overwhelming entrance into eternity. Through their insights, both Meek and Edwards inspire individuals to deepen their faith intentionally and holistically.

    By cultivating these seven disciplines you nurture your faith journey.

    Quotes
    "For if these things are yours and abound, you will neither, you'll be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ." - Christian Edwards

    "When God looks down from heaven at us as believers, he wants to see himself. We're to be a mirror image of him. We are to be conformed to his image." - Christian Edwards

    "If God gave you the vision, he will give you the capacity to fulfill the vision, but it takes your perseverance to see it through." - Rylee Meek

    "Kindness is not niceness. Right? There's a big difference. Or just acceptance of everything. Sometimes to be kind, you've got to be bold." - Rylee Meek

    "To love is a decision. It's not an emotion. Despite these movies that you may see, despite seeing somebody and just, like, feeling these butterflies in your tummy about them, it's a decision to compassionately, to righteously, to sacrificially meet the needs of another." - Christian Edwards

    "If I hear anything other than that, I'm going to be very disappointed knowing that you're like, who just made it right by this? Give me your teeth. Oh, man. Definitely don't. Don't want that to happen." - Rylee Meek

    The Root of All Sin part 2

    Covetousness and idolatry are intertwined concepts, emphasizing the need to turn towards God and away from material idols.
     
    Idolatry, a sin consistently condemned in scripture, often starts innocuously but can lead to significant spiritual oppression by prioritizing anything over one's relationship with God, such as fitness, relationships, or material possessions. Rylee Meek views idolatry as a serious and often underestimated sin, manifesting in various forms that can hinder one's relationship with God. He stresses the importance of recognizing and fleeing from idols to fully devote oneself to worshiping the true God. Similarly, Christian Edwards emphasizes that idolatry, although it may begin from a seemingly good place, is the dominant sin addressed in scripture. He advocates for repentance and turning away from idols, highlighting the need to acknowledge God's exclusive rights to our worship and devotion to avoid spiritual oppression. Both perspectives underline the necessity of humility, accountability, and community support to overcome the pitfalls of pride and idolatry, fostering a spiritually fulfilling life aligned with God's will.
    Acknowledging idols in one's life and understanding what constitutes idolatry is essential to fleeing from it, as instructed in scripture.

    Quotes
    "There's no sin, actually, that's mentioned more in scripture than the sin of idolatry, and it's the dominant sin that's addressed over every other sin, and it's always condemned. Always condemned." - Christian Edwards

    "Be a good example of a Christian by turning your back to those idols, turning towards God." - Christian Edwards

    "I want to give everything like I don't want anybody to know anything that. That I'd be given because I want my credit to be built up in heaven." - Rylee Meek

    "Happiness is dependent upon your happenings, so your circumstances dictate whether you're happy or not. Well, guess what? If you have a relationship with Christ, you could have true joy that never wavers, never wanes to see." - Christian Edwards

    "Examine yourself. See if you have any idols. See if there's anything that's competing with your loyalty to God right now and identify it and flee from that thing. Make some changes." - Christian Edwards

    The Root of All Sin part 1

    The Root of All Sin part 1

    It's easy to overlook the things that we put above our relationship with God, whether it's material possessions, success, or even relationships.
    Idolatry, the act of placing anything above one's devotion to God, remains a poignant topic both historically and in contemporary society. Rylee Meek and Christian Edwards explore this issue, warning against allowing even positive aspects of life, such as church activities or loved ones, to become idols that detract from a relationship with the Creator. Meek, drawing from his observations of modern culture, points out how even spiritual leaders can fall into the trap of idolizing church growth or material success, a theme echoed in popular rap music's glorification of wealth and fame. He also shares the poignant example of Christian Edwards' mother, who unintentionally idolized her children, leading to unhealthy relational dynamics. Edwards, on the other hand, emphasizes the scriptural warnings against idolatry, highlighting how it can manifest in various forms, including the idolization of sports teams, rooted in pride. He suggests that pride lies at the heart of most sins, as it involves prioritizing personal desires over divine commands. Both agree on the necessity of self-examination and daily worship to keep God at the center of one's life, advocating for a routine that fosters spiritual fulfillment over worldly distractions.

    It's crucial to maintain a healthy balance between our relationships and our faith, ensuring that our focus remains on God above all else.

    Takeaways
    Idolatry can manifest in modern life by prioritizing anything over devotion to God.Money and wealth can become idols if not aligned with seeking first the kingdom of God.Idolizing loved ones or even church-related activities can lead to unhealthy dynamics and shift focus from faith.Idolatry extends beyond physical idols to anything that competes with loyalty to God.Idolizing success or others' opinions can lead to prioritizing desires over God's commands.Starting each day with gratitude and worship can help prioritize God over worldly distractions.Identifying and removing hidden idols in our hearts is crucial to maintaining a strong spiritual connection.

    Quotes
    "Idolatry is really anything in creation that competes with our loyalty to our creator." - Christian Edwards

    "This is something that we need to check ourselves before we wreck ourselves." - Rylee Meek

    "Anything that rightly belongs to him, if we give it to somebody else, if we worship something else, or somebody else, if we honor somebody more than God, he's that jealous God, because that rightfully belongs to him." - Christian Edwards

    "These ten commandments are a way for life to actually go well for us. It's not a list of rules and restrictions, but If you follow these commands, life will go well for you." - Rylee Meek

    "I need to just spend that time with them. And not only is it. It's not just for his glory, it's for our good." - Christian Edwards

    "When we wake up in the morning is it 'Thank You, Jesus! Thank You, God. I have another day.' Or is it the first thing we go to is social media, or is the first thing we go to is our phone? God demands exclusivity in our lives. Those first fruits are the most value thing we can give him" - Rylee Meek

    Church & Politics

    Church & Politics

    In today's political landscape, it's crucial that our decisions align with biblical values.
    The topic of the importance of voting, particularly from a Christian perspective, is an engaging and vital discourse. It puts into perspective the moral obligations of believers in their role as active participants in the socio-political landscape. Rylee Meek, a firm proponent of this view, sees voting not only as a duty but also as a moral obligation for believers. He emphasizes the need for voting choices to reflect biblical values and principles, underlining the impact of these decisions on future generations. His views are shaped by his belief in the significance of character and integrity in candidates. Similarly, Christian Edwards asserts that voting is a moral obligation incumbent upon Christians. He talks about the consequences of abstaining from voting, equating it to a tacit consent to possibly immoral policies. Edwards urges Christians to utilize their voting power to stand up against policies or candidates incongruent with biblical principles, emphasizing that silence on such matters could be considered a sin of omission.

    Silence through non-voting is seen as consent, but participating in elections and voting based on biblical convictions allows individuals to shape a future aligned with their values. 

    Takeaways
    Voting is a moral responsibility based on biblical principles.The American Constitution was influenced by biblical principles, emphasizing limited government power.Absolute disobedience to tyranny is obedience to God, as seen in biblical stories.The importance of aligning political decisions with biblical values is emphasized.Racial equality is explored through discussions on critical race theory, biblical values, and the role of political parties.Equal Opportunity in Hiring is crucial for selecting the best candidates based on qualifications rather than minority status.Active participation in influencing national, regional, and local outcomes by joining efforts and taking action is a moral obligation for believers.


    Quotes
    "You may not want to be in politics, but politics wants to be in you. And that's kind of sounds weird. But that is true." - Rylee Meek

    "And with God being in control, and this is something that I thought early on in my walk with the Lord, I never wanted to get into politics, and it was like, God's in control. But the more you think about it, how does God accomplish things? Oftentimes on earth, through his people." - Christian Edwards

    "Disobedience to tyranny is obedience to God." - Rylee Meek

    "It's impressive that a six eight woman could dunk because they're not as athletic." - Christian Edwards

    "If your conviction is anything other than what the word of God says, than ain't that it? That's not." - Rylee Meek

    Was Jesus Rich? Part 2

    It's crucial to remember that stewardship goes beyond just managing money; it involves using financial resources wisely to support and care for those in need.
    Wealth and kingdom entrepreneurship, a captivating topic, intertwines spiritual principles and financial stewardship to support the less fortunate. Rylee Meek, a firm believer in this approach, sees the creation of wealth as a tool for righteous purposes, influenced by his view that wealth should be a resource used to bless others and advance God's kingdom. He underscores the significance of viewing money as a means to make Christians more effective in their calling and to create a positive global impact. Similarly, Christian Edwards sees wealth and kingdom entrepreneurship as tied to faithful stewardship and wealth creation for the benefit of those in need. He emphasizes not merely accumulating wealth for personal gain, but utilizing it to bless others, spread the gospel, and fulfill individuals' divine purposes. Both perspectives highlight a kingdom mindset in entrepreneurship, underlining the importance of aligning one's actions with God's will.

    "What would the devil fear more than a rich Christian? The devil. That the thing he fears the most is a rich Christian." - Christian Edwards

    "It's not a lack of resources, it's a lack of stewardship." - Rylee Meek

    "And when we do look at faiths, like Judaism, where they actually have no problem making money, they value money. They, they. Money is a part of all their ceremonies. Right. The exchanging of money. It's a noble, virtuous, moral thing to be wealthy. But the fact that they're taught that it's not a bad thing to make money, that's what we as Christians need to be teaching our children. Not only is it not just a bad thing, it's a good thing." - Christian Edwards

    "We know we can't serve both God and money. It's impossible. So, we got to serve God to make money serve us." - Rylee Meek

    "To raise up Christian entrepreneurs, to disciple Christian entrepreneurs, to not just go and make money for the sake of making money. In the end of the day, who knows how much will actually stay in their own bank account or stay in their own possession. Most of it should be given away, but God's going to give those giftings to the people who are actually advancing the kingdom of God." - Christian Edwards

Meek's viewpoint is that our financial prosperity is closely linked with our understanding of God-given gifts and abilities. He encourages self-reflection and challenging of subconscious beliefs that may obstruct wealth creation, asserting that one's perspective on money should be in harmony with their view of God. Edwards, on the other hand, offers a comparative analysis between Judaism and Christianity, suggesting that the former views money as a positive tool for service, while the latter often harbors a more cautious attitude towards wealth. He underlines the necessity of aligning conscious and subconscious beliefs about money and encourages Christians to adopt a more balanced approach to wealth, rooted in biblical principles of contentment and generosity.
