Biblical manliness is not popular in our culture today. Our politically correct culture encourages men to mask themselves with an unbiblical identity. But a true man understands that his identity is in Christ, not the culture! In Ephesians 4:22-24, Paul tells us to take off the old corrupt self and to put on the new man.
The old mask is corrupt; the new mask is righteous #menrewired
One of the largest church-related gatherings of men takes place at Falls Creek in the spring of every year. Near Davis, Oklahoma, Falls Creek is the location of the annual “Men Rewired” retreat sponsored by the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma and led by our BGCO men’s specialist, Keith Burkhart. This is a fantastic men’s event and this year’s retreat theme is “Mask”. As a man, you have a choice of wearing the old corrupt mask, or to put on the new mask made for you when you are re-created in Christ’s likeness.
The 2015 Men Rewired Retreat is April 24-25 at Falls Creek. For a retreat schedule and registration information go here, or simply click the “Mask” icon located in the right sidebar of this page.
I encourage you to register and attend the Men Rewired Retreat this year. It’s the real deal. To the right are pictures of me and a group of guys from the Reliant LifeGroup at First Baptist-Moore praying for each last year in the foyer of the Falls Creek Tabernacle at last year’s Rewired Men’s Retreat.
In addition, we are encouraging men that attend the Rewired Retreat to start 500 small groups. To help, we have assembled 500 “grab bags” with resources a man can use to start a new group. The bag includes 5 copies of our newest small group resource called “Identity“, which is a 6 week Bible study of book of Ephesians. Also included is a DVD with 6 teaching videos for each Bible study.
If you really want to live counter-culturally, following Jesus is the way to go! #menrewired
