Jesus is Lord Now the way Mases is reprsenting him, Trust me GOD is not please. Many are call to Christ but few a choose. The is Church not full of Traders or people that say one thing and do another. Notice I said not full. The word of GOD says you can not serve two masters you will love one and hate the other. He loves money more right now than God . God controlls wealth and he can bless whom ever he want. But the thing is if he were to die today bearing this type of fruit which means loving money the way he does he would go to a devils hell. It's sad but GOD is loving but he is Just. When he give you mercy you should not abuse it.
Jesus is Lord
A man said "I hear that he has a clicque of homo thugs at his church called Lighthouse Productions, and only the men in the group can stay at the new mansion he\'s building.

He's gay, and it's been said for years that Puffy had him showing the lunar eclipse in the bedroom. Can't nobody take my pride?!

Mase is a sucker. He thought he was going back to the top, but now he has a congregation of humpbacks and dukestrokers. I hope he spontaneously combusts during a sermon."

A lot of the blind people on here do not understand God because of there lack of knowledege. Nor do they understand Satan. What this man said is a small portion of how Satan feels about Mase. I am gonna say something about my enemy. He comes to steal, kill and destroy. He is looking for someone to devour, but who is annointed enough that if he devours the head he has the ability to devour the rest of the body. If Mase really had the annointing to change millions of lies Satan would much rather attack him.

Do not be a fool and sit here to judge Mase because you only bring the judger forth to judge you. The only person who can condemn you is you. Living a lifestyle that is against God will surely send you to Hell! Again, this is not judging but truth. Do you think God will accept the smallest of sin? No, he hates sin. Jesus said "Stop, sinning." The world is so blind that it cannot not realize that sin has them right in its hands and they are committed slaves to sin. So, in contrast to Mase, if he goes back to the sinful lifestyle he only condemns himself and then will sin become that mans master. Jesus said I am going to have you this way and not any other. This does not exempt anyone; This goes for every human being who breathes air.

One of God's own
what ever yall say about Mase i dont give a F### man Mase is the shit fo real despite anything that is going on. However u need to listen to his new songs like check cleared when he callling Brandy a Hoe and dissin Jim Jones. He cusing again man. This guy actually thinks he is a pastor but he is cursing. Some people call him a hypocrite but he still my favorite rapper. I just read an article the other day about Mase. He told people that once he came back in the rap game he wanted to quit the church, i dont know if he really means this but i really think he needs to keep preaching for people. G-Unit is the cause of this though people cant see this its all beacause of 50 Cent. %0 wanted his contrat but Diddy wouldnt give it up so thats why 50 dissin him with the song hip hop is dead. I always listen to niggaz say that read his book and shit telling me that he wouldnt return to the rap game, agiain he spoke about that in the jet books when he came out with his cd Welcome Back. He said he wasnt making enough in the church that was the main reason. Anywayzzzz his cd might be called Karma or the Secong Coming no telling when he is putting his cd out. His beef is over with Fabolus if u guys havent heard it ended during the summer. Mase won the freestly battle he dissin loon and won that too. Now what will MAse do now hes still on the edge beefing with Killa Cam and JIm Jones.
Montez
Yeah, dude. Ya'll needa stop dissin' Mase. My mom asks me every-day when she's playing the " Welcome Back " cd, " What happened to Mase? " and I come here and see a buncha desperate white boys tryn'a rash on him. Grow the f**k up, man.

So, from what I've read, I didn't really get the answer. What'd Mase do AFTER the " Welcome Back " CD? It says he became a preacher, and then joined G-Unit, but there's no dates here, so I dunno if you're talking about before he was a born again Christian, or after. I don't think he'd do very well in G-Unit. The " Welcome Back " CD is really .. word-ish, yanno? I didn't think that after he was born again, he'd go back to rappin' about girls, sex and money. I dunno', you tell me. Date; August 7th, 06. If ya'll have AIM, IM me and help me out. Sn: cry of the weak or cryoftheweak@aol.com

YALL HELLA SLOW BECAUSE MASE WAS TRYNA JOIN WITH GUNIT AND AINT PREACH N AND ALL THAT NO MO. WATCH BET DANG.

Yes Ma$e did become a pastor, however, he has now left the church n signed to a new group. This might sound ungodly but yes its true Ma$e is a member of G-Unit (the group 50 cent created).
Tygaress
now he's on G-UNIT Records. Now what do ya'll have to say.

GOD had a plan for Mase all along. If GOD wanted Mase to have his own church, or teach the Word to other rap artist, cats or dogs, the only one who can judge Mase is GOD!

Simple as that.

First of all people need to start putting the dates on their comments. It makes it alot easier to know when all this stuff was going on. Before, I read this I had no idea Mase had ever been a Preacher but, I wasn't that surprised either. As far as i've seen or heard Mace has never done or said anything that offended me or made me think he couldn't be a religious man. He has a wonderful voice and more than likely enjoys singing. Of course, he wants to make money and theres nothing wrong with that. I really don't get how ya'll think ya'll have the right to judge Mace. As far, as you know this was the Lords next plan for mace. All of you are trying to say ya'll are such wonderful religious people. I think if God choose Mace to preach his word then, God will not forsake Mace just for using the talent in which he was gifted with. It's not right for ya'll to act as if ya'll know what God had in mind for Mace. Anyway, I like his songs even though I usualy don't like rap much.

He is no longer a pastor a just made song called welcome back.

Mase, everybody's favorite new hip-hoppin, bee-boppin', minstrel... oops, I mean minister, is a complete homo thug.

I hear that he has a clicque of homo thugs at his church called Lighthouse Productions, and only the men in the group can stay at the new mansion he\'s building.

He's gay, and it's been said for years that Puffy had him showing the lunar eclipse in the bedroom. Can't nobody take my pride?!

Mase is a sucker. He thought he was going back to the top, but now he has a congregation of humpbacks and dukestrokers. I hope he spontaneously combusts during a sermon.

What happened to Mase is the question? He had a conversion like Saul when he became Paul. His eyes were open to truth and he started to walk in the way of righteousness.

I was uplifted to read his book and see his uncompromising faith and foundation. Then the story changed and he became like a man in the bible named Demas. Demas was doing a great work with the apostles but in 2Tim 4:10 you read how his life played out in a quick short verse: For Demas hath forsaken me, having loved this present world and is departed

I do not write off Mase or sentence him to hell becaue I judge lest I be judged. We are living in a time of grace and mercy and unless he becomes sold out to Christ once again then he too will end such as Demas and miss the calling....you wonder why his come back isnt as big as when he first came out? No one knows who he is.

He weakened his testimony as a Pastor and he weakened his skills as a 'bad boy'. No man can serve two masters for he will hate the one and love the other..... its his choice. Remember to follow Christ and not man...read the word and KNOW truth for YOURSELF!

Daughter of Zion
he released a song called "Breath, Stretch, Shake" the first time i've ever heard of mase was when he released "Welcome Back" i like those 2 songs. mase is pretty good.

i also have no idea what anyone is talking about with that whole religious deal.

....
all i have to say about MA$E is that HIS BACK BITCHES!!! and he's here to stay. i love him and everything about him. I had been missing him since he left. Mase, if you're reading this, Baby i love you, and keep on doing what you do.

From Bishop Ronny Davis and the Tabernacle of Prayer family, We just want to say that we love and miss you and that you are always in our prayers. And we want to keep a little thought with you, If God called you to PREACH HIS WORD, IF YOU DO ANYTHING ELSE BESIDES THAT, YOU ARE OUT OF GOD'S WILL FOR YOUR LIFE AND YOUR FAMILY. Don't get persuade by anyone or anthing but GOD. God called Mason Betha to get this generation"X" into a higher calling in God. Their is only one of doing that and that is by preaching the Word Of God. And remember Pastor Mason, BE YE HOLY FOR I AM HOLY! IT IS STILL HOLINESS AND WILL ALWAYS BE HOLINESS OR HELL. HOLINESS IN YOUR MIND, CONVERSATION, DRESSING,THE WAY YOU ACT AND CARRY YOURSELF, AND HOLINESS IN YOUR HEART, WITHOUT NO MAN SHALL SEE THE LORD. MY LOVE,YOUR SONGS ARE NOT HOLY!

You people are a bunch of idiots!! no offence or anything but this is not a message board. As in no one's here to dog or praise anyone!!! You simply say if you know anything about Mase and move on!!!!!!!!!!

Whom by the way is back with a new single.."Welcome Back". You should listen to it instead of expressing your sheer faith in the lord JC or whatever.

With Much Love and Concern
For Mase and Mankind,
I write...

The message from "Someone Who Loves People" reflects the overall mind frame of the majority of individuals who either does not "know God"; does not know what the Word says in regards to the reward of the righteous and the unrighteous, or they choose to be in denial.

Often individuals conveniently paint a mental portrait of an imaginary god and conduct themselves in accordance to how they "perceive" God to be.
They ascribe a character to God that helps them to feel better about failure... about not being, and not doing what He commands them to be and to do. This mentality is DANGEROUS. The Old Testament vividly describes "God, The Creator". Beloved, God changeth not.

Many suppose that the character of God revealed in the Old Testament is no longer like the description written in the Holy Bible. Many like to focus on "He's a God of Love!" Yes! Indeed He is...He is also a God of Judgment.

There is a vast difference between “judging and proclaiming what has already been judged in the Holy Scriptures.”
What is in a person’s heart is often revealed /displayed in his / her actions; and is also revealed by God to His Servants.

The ongoing perverseness and evil practices of today, is tolerated by the Father because we are in the grace dispensation of time.
One must not misconstrue the display of mercy and grace to be an admission of God condoning sinful practices because He doesn’t force man to stop abruptly.
There is an appointed time when God shall unleash His judgment upon those who have subjected Him to behold what He despises; upon those who reject Him, His Son and serve the devil and sin.

God is giving and has given the world (people) time to repent and accept His Son; time to accept the redemptive work of His Son; to accept salvation and escape damnation.

Many who have rejected God in the past, who refused to live as He commanded, have departed this life on earth thinking they were going to be with the Lord. Going to a better place. Going to the place Jesus went to prepare for those that love Him.

Sadly, they received a rude unchangeable awakening when they arrived at their eternal destination to receive just recompense of reward. Though in torment, they could not revoke their fate and escape the penalty of sin.

According to the Scriptures, sinners do not go to be with the Lord, they are in everlasting torment. This truth is what the devil wants to conceal and I am COMPELLED BY LOVE to reveal!!!

The devil is a deceiver and wants mankind to believe that they can freely serve him and avoid the punishment which awaits him and his followers.
Not so. My Pastor taught: "A person can do anything they think that they are big enough, bad enough, grown enough and bold enough to do, but just be willing to pay the price. For the price of sin is high my friend and nobody, but nobody gets by."

Satan's deceptive tactics are successful and he usually gets the advantage of those ignorant of his devices.
Sad but true, Satan's ploy to destroy is succeeding because many doesn't know how he operates, and or many for fear of loss, refuse to become and to proclaim the truth.
But thanks be to God, Satan and his tactics are revealed in the Word of God! We don't have to be ignorant of the devil's devices!!!

When truth is proclaimed, many who do not know or understand the truth, sometimes disdain the proclaimer and say: "You shouldn't be judging nobody; you don't know their heart."

A person does not have to be a Son of God to know what is right and wrong; or to know what is in a person's heart. Their actions reveal their heart.
The Bible says, "He that is spiritual, judgeth all things." If there be a mote, or beam, or sin in a person's life, they are in no position to judge anyone.

Let's proceed. Satan knows the Truth but likes to distort the Truth. Remember in the Garden of Eden, Satan knew what God said, but he via the serpent lied to Eve to persuade her to yield to his plot. He knew if Eve and Adam disobeyed the command of God, it would cause them to die and be separated from the Father.
Just as sin separated mankind from God in the beginning, it does so today.

If there's ever been a time to "Submit yourselves to God; resist the devil and STAND fervent in the way of holiness, NOW IS THE TIME!!!

Know ye not that everything must run it's course? Then at the fullness of time, God shall do what He said! He that shall come, will come. And when He returns, whatever state a man is in, so shall he remain. "He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still."

No man knows the day nor the hour the Son of God shall return. Therefore, we must live each moment holy before the Father.

No man knows the day nor the hour when the devil shall come to kill, steal and destroy. Therefore we must live each moment holy before the Father. We must set our house in order!

Death is an enemy and has no respect of persons. How a person lives on this earth determines where they live after death. Despite what is taught and believed by the masses, everyone gets eternal life. The topic of concern and question is "Where will they spend eternity?"

Beloved, be not deceived, how a person lives on earth depicts where they go after death.

During my years of adolescence, I was taught contrary. I was taught that no matter how a person lived on earth, after death, they automatically went to be with the Lord. Thank God for the revelation which came via a preacher who was chosen of God to warn the wicked that they turn from their wickedness to avoid the penalty of sin.
He told me the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life.
He told me that if I was a sinner and I did not repent, (forsake sin) and accept Jesus Christ into my heart as my Lord and Saviour, and serve Him in the beauty of holiness, that "if I died tonight, in hell I'd lift up my eyes."

Immediately, I repented, accepted Christ into my heart, asked Him to deliver me from every thing unlike Him and asked Him to fill me with the Holy Ghost and to make and mold me into what was pleasing in His sight. I knew that I knew, hell was real and I didn't want to die and go live there!

I came to God because of fear. I remain with Him because I know Him and love Him!!!
I willingly obey His commands which are not at all grievous to the one desirous of pleasing Him and living eternally with Him.

How a person lives here on earth is a determining factor of where they shall spend eternity. One cannot abruptly change their course of destiny after death. This must be done before cessation of life here on earth.

This is why I speak,...that Mase, M. C. Hammer and "he that hath an ear to hear" would know the truth and be made free from the lie!
God is not confused or doubleminded. If God called you out of darkness, you must choose to obey; come out and stay out.

Those whom He called out are to come out and "go and sin no more." It is through our living holy and righteous, obeying the Father do we proceed to reach the masses who abide in darkness.
We are to light the world with the glorious light of the Gospel.
Reject man's philosophy and ideology which lead men to think it is right to become like the world to win the world.

The devil has indeed laid a snare to entrap Mase, M. C. Hammer and ultimately destroy them and all those who would look upon them and their choice to return to the path which leads to eternal torment and damnation with admiration.
This is not the Will of God!
This is not the desire of The First Lady!
This is a masterful plot of the devil to mislead and cause one to jeopardize their blessed inheritance via compromise! Satan KNOWS God! Satan knows God will not alter His Word! He knows that God shall do what He said!

If you were in your vehicle travelling on a bridge, and there were onlookers at the base of the bridge cognizant that the "bridge was out", would you prefer they warn you?, or would you rather they leave you alone to experience peril?

Love motivates one to "tell the truth" if indeed "truth" is known. I "know The Way, The Truth and The Life" and have been commissioned by God to "Preach the Word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine." And this, will I do as God continues to permit.

You see, it is not the will of God that any man perish and go to hell and be cast into the Lake of Fire. God sent His Son into the world not to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved! Accepting Jesus is our only way of escape.
Hell and the Lake of Fire was created for Satan and all that love and follow/ serve Satan.
New Jerusalem was created for those who love and follow/ serve God.
A person cannot live free from sin without the power of the Holy Ghost, the Comforter, the Holy Spirit. We need the POWER!
Jesus said: "Behold, I give unto you power, over all the power of the devil and nothing shall by any means hurt you."
The only way to succeed in living as God commands is to possess the power of God within and to willingly obey the unctioning of the Holy Ghost as He leads and guide us into all truth.

The Holy Ghost does not “make us do right when we wanna do wrong.” He reminds us of what the will of the Father is.
God will not force us to live free from sin. He has made provision for us to not have to succumb to it. To sin is a choice. To live holy is a choice. It is the choices we make in life on earth which determines what we experience on earth and thereafter.
God will not and does enter into nor inhabit an unclean temple and neither shall He allow anything unclean to enter into nor inhabit New Jerusalem.
None but the righteous, whose names are written in the Lamb's Book of Life shall be able to enter into the Kingdom of Almighty, Infallible God...into New Jerusalem! Believest thou this? Is your name is written in THE BOOK?

"The First Lady" Pt. II
First, I would just like to pray that God would have mercy on all those who are dogging Pastor Mason Betha. Jesus loves him and only God knows everything. No one knows his heart and Jesus gave us a command no matter what to love one another as he loved us.(John 13:34)And the Bible says to make allowance for one another faults.And if you see your brother in a fault restore him in a spirit of meekness considering your own self.(romans 5:1)We're to consider ourselves when it comes to dealing with other people. You don't dog or condemn him, love him. And if, just if, he is wrong you're commanded to pray and love.Who are you to judge another man's servant? I love him and believe the best about him.Like I said earlier, no one knows his heart or exactly what's going on.And the hellfire, brimstone,condemnation message isn't what you need to give people,that's not representing Jesus right.He said for I have not come to condemn the world, but the world through me might be saved. He said go love and judge not.And I won't judge and will give mercy,just like Jesus did me when I was all messed up and needed help,he loved me came in my heart and saved me. So I love you all and him just like Jesus loved me. And you all that support him,you're a blessing.
Someone who loves people
The devil and his servants
"Welcome Back" Mase
To The Path Which Leads To Everlasting
Torment and Damnation!

"What doth it profit a man to gain the world and lose his soul? Or what shall he give in exchange for his soul?"
He that hath an ear, let him hear...

In this era, many have compromised and forsaken the call of God to "Wherefore, come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you."

Many have decided to join the wicked and partake in wickedness in hopes to "win" the wicked for Christ. Their reason for fraternizing with the devil and utilizing the devil's tools is allegedly to "reach the lost for Christ and win them over to righteousness."

It is wonderful to want to reach the lost for Christ; but the laborer must not indulge in sin and labor to win others and they themselves be lost.
One need not compromise the way of holiness nor condescend to do so. Jesus did not condescend to reach sinful man. He remained holy and pleasing and obedient to the Father throughout His life here on earth. Jesus was in all points tempted like as we are, yet He was without sin.

It is disheartening to see masses misrepresenting the "Church"; the "Bride of Christ". Bearing the religious signs, not possessing the heavenly goods. Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof.

Many have forsaken the way of holiness and fallen by the wayside and have not gotten up to walk in the newness of life.
Partially the cause for this great falling away is "blind leaders" teaching that "no one is perfect nor can be perfect"; the individual's desire to fulfill the lust of the flesh; masses who view religious programming have gone a whoring and forsaken God; are not beholding examples of holiness to pattern themselves; masses are not being taught the strictness of the Gospel which encourages hearers/ sinners to forsake sin; to live holy and develop a relationship with God; and perhaps the evil report of Donnie."

A saint is "NOT" a sinner who fell down! If a person is a sinner, they are not a saint. The devil is a liar and so is Donnie. Many took that song inspired by the devil and utilized it as a cloak for their failure to live holy and felt justification becauseDonnie said "a saint is just a sinner who fell down."
Woe to them which teach men to do contrary to what Jesus command. Mt. 5:48, Jesus said: "Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in Heaven is perfect."
Jesus never told us to do what could not be done. News Flash: "If we are not what He commands us to be, with Him we shall not live eternally in the place prepared for those who love Him.”
Jesus said: "If ye love Me, keep My commandments.;
If a man love Me, he will keep My words.;
He that loveth Me not, keepeth not my sayings."
If any man love the world, (carnality, sinful pleasures) the love of the Father is not in him.
To those who would receive Him, to them gave He power to become the Sons of God! Power to live free from sin! Sons of God are not sinners.
Many teach and believe that: "you can serve God and serve the devil at the same time." I say what the Word says, No man can serve two masters;…ye cannot serve God and mammon.

They say you can join a "church", pay tithes, give offerings, sing in the choir, etc. and not give up that pleasurable sinful lifestyle. You don't have to change, God understands; He made us and that's just the way it is."
To receive Jesus, is to receive all He taught; willingly repent and to walk obediently and pleasing to the Father.

The "Church" is not a structural concrete building as some suppose, the "Church is the Bride of Christ". Ephesians 5: 25-27 tells us that "...Christ also loved the Church, and gave Himself for it;
That He might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the Word.
That He might present it to Himself a glorious Church, not having spot, or wrinkle or any such thing: but that it should be holy and without blemish."

When I consider the Scripture, "For the time is come that judgment must begin at the House of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the Gospel of God?
And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?"

This is not the time to give up walking in the "way of life eternal with the Father" to partake in the temporal pleasures of carnality which bind the mind to a reprobate state and condemn the body and soul to everlasting perdition.

The devil awaits an opportunity to distract the believer and reclaim his/her soul.
Trials, temptations are launched to encourage that person to return to their sinful lifestyle.

Know ye that the Bible refers to a person who returns to sin as "a dog returning to his own vomit"? When a man serves sin, the devil wins. The servant of Satan shall spend eternity with his master.

God has given whomsoever will receive Him the power to live godly in a world surrounded by evil influences. We must choose to live free from sin. We must not allow evil influences to persuade us to "forget the Lord God". When Israel forgot God, they forsook Him. So many like to attend religious edifices which allows them to be "free" to do what is pleasing to the flesh, as long as they support it financially. My Pastor taught a message years ago entitled: "Don't Be So Free Till You Loose Yourself From God!"

In this life, there are restrictions and boundaries which must be adhered to, must not be ignored to be in compliance. If you want what await the Sons of God, you must become a Son of God and remain so unto His glorious appearing!

Truth is, evil communication corrupts good manners. Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people.

"If you wanna make it into the Kingdom of God, you gotta give up all of your sin and live / walk no longer therein!"
Believest thou this?

With much love and concern, I say to Mase / Mace and to "he that hath an ear, let him hear..."
"Time is winding up!
The devil awaits to destroy.

I "Welcome Mase / Mace
To Walk in The Light, Holiness Is Right!"

"Follow peace with all men, and holiness,
without shall no man see the Lord:”

Don't get it twisted "I feel ya", because I really don't feel ya. Before we're quick to say something against another BELIEVER, lets us first examine ourselves. What are WE doing to reach believers? What OUR purpose? How is God using OUR talents?? We as the Kingdom of God are suppose to support the members in the body. And Mase is a child in the Kingdom of God. He's made mistakes in the past, and you know what, he's going to make mistakes in the future. If he says he's going back to bring unbelievers to Christ, then watch God. If he rapping in the secular arena, then watch God. If he's professing Christ among secular and an unbelieving generation, then WATCH GOD! You think God's mad that he wants to bring a perverse generation back to the Source? Before we pass our conviction upon someone else, examine yourself first and WATCH GOD! selah...
dont get it twisted
Everybody welcomin this welcomin that, he wasn\'t welcome in the first place how we welcome him back?
Cam'ron
There is no way in the world Mase can justify signing back on with Badboy records. He presenting to the world a false image of the Christ of the Bible. And for him to be a pastor he should know better than to join hands with the world and call it Gods will the devil is a lie. My sister lives in ATL and is a member of his church. She let me listen to some of his tapes and all of them talk about money. Jesus said "He that is not with me is against me" the bible also asked the question "what fellowship hath darkness with light"? according to Amos 3:3 the bible says "can two walk together unless they be agreed?" The only way Mase can walk together with Badboy records is to agree with the wickedness that they promote. For those who disagree I say READ YOR BIBLE.
Pastor
heres the deal. have any of you read his book? I did. he not only did not support gospel rap or gospel rnb he put it down. so to ay that he his trying to reach a bigger audience is a bit naive. mase is going back in the devils den. unless he felt God told him this I really question this move. I also heard the nyc radio interview and he said when he told some of his people from his church about it he expected a bad response. My thoughts are if you're doing god's will why would he expecting a bad response. Mase is back for 1 thing and you can find that answer in his old name "MA$e"...its all bout the money. Paul has turned back to saul.
i feel ya
ALL OF THOSE THAT ARE JUDGING HIM NEED TO QUIET NONE OF YOU ARE GOD ONLY GOD CAN JUDGE HIM SO YOU NEED TO TO LEAVE IT UP TO GOD

To me, Believer made the best post. They are right by saying that Mase has corrected himself and that he is preaching to more people in his music than he could at a church. Anyone who is saying that he is wrong, is just a hater. He has totally made himself a better man. He has dropped the gangster image and in the video for "welcome back", he pretends to be Mr. Rogers... C'mon! He has changed! Lastly, on the same day that Rick James died from most likely drugs, Mase has removed himself from the drug game. I am only 13 years old, but I think what he has done is great!
P.S. Welcome Back Mase!
Anonymous
Hi All I ma a beliver in the Lord JC and I am also a beleiver in the betterment o humanity. I think that if the issue of spreading the word is analysed then this is really the only weay Mase can relate the changes he has experienced to those who are in the sort of situations that he was faced 5 years ago. Thugs, strippers and hoes dont go to church, they listen to Hip Hop. It is the most direct and logical way to reach the downtrodden. When you ask yourselve what would Jesus do this is somethign he would consider if he were around these days. In the sermon on the mound he preached to 5000 people. Mase is simply preaching to masses through his music. This is his way of giving back to the community. It is a worry that some people chosse to judge the man and condemn his actions. If Jesus walked today he would commend Mase. He is spreading the word. If he earns some cash for doing so then this is the will of the lord...who are we to question it? Also the fact the he has realigned himself with BadBoy records is also not to be misunderstood. FOr the all shiny suits, rolies, blunts and women, Diddy still chose not pursue any legal options when Mase retired as he understod the calling of the lord is unstoppable...pardon the pun!

i am so disappointed.wat example has this guy set?not juss for the youth but for everybody? he makes it seem likeits okay to 2 mix the light with the darkness.look you may say he aint singing valgour but he went back with his whole crew and he talks of girls in the CLUB screaming for him? need 2 pray for mase there still is tym. well at least if he is singing let it be gospel we would understand.we as people shld always think of the way jesus suffered for us (PASSION OF THE CHRIST).to me it seems like mase went back as away 2 fit in both worlds and makeup to his friends. i am hurt we cant let the devil take one from us he needs our pryer.

I have never liked the "gansta" mentality that came along with the old Image of Mase, but I am outraged by the last comment from "Is it really welcome back". I am a Christian and I believe in the power of faith, but I am also a realist living in 2004. The fact that Mason Betha has made a comeback is great! It shows all young people who are on the wrong path in life, that is never too late to change your ways. Mase brough back a CLEAN verses and pleasant music. As far as his followers, if they trully are following him - they will embrace his re-born style. He is a breath of fresh air, in this day and age, where sex and violence has become a "normal" backdrop for music artists. So - yeah - WELCOME BACK, MASE!
Truthful
First of all as believers we must first ask our self WWJD (what would Jesus do). When i first heard many years ago that Mase had left the game and went to follow GOD i admired him, he reminded me of a parable in the Bible where Jesus asked the rich man to give up his riches and follow him, even though that man didnt it was awesome that Mase did. Then a few years later he came to Olivet Baptist and I had a chance to hear him speak. After hearing him speak i realized that his life hadn\'t changed at all only his hustle. I could not sense, see or feel anything that had to do with God. I was so disappointed. That is why it was no surprise that he is back out there in the streets. For the lover of money is the root of all evil. And his love of money is what has led him back into his other career. What is so sad about the whole thing is his followers. What type of example is he setting for young believers. That its okay to live your life how you want just as long you go to church on Sunday or mention God. Well how about mentioning for the wages of sin is death. God says clearly in the Bible that you say you are of me and live so unrightously, He will take you out. That is the message we need to be very clear on. For the road to hell is broad but the road to Heaven is very narrow. Either you are His or not, for Him or against Him, There are no in between when it comes to God. You are first saved in you heart, your actions are just a result of that salvation, a TV of what the heart really meant when thy tongue was confessing. Mase, the only force that is saying "Welcome Back" is the devil and unfortunately he opened his door and you walked in. I pray that for the sake of other that you would have enough courage to close your Church doors so that Satan will not be able to lead anyone into the same doors you have entered. "Choose ye now who you shall serve, as for me and my house we shall serve the Lord"
Is it really Welcome back
Jesus still loves you Mase,it is never too late.
Blesseds
He's got a new single, Welcome Back. I like it, top song
Steve
it aint easy to drop your past, burn the bridges and not look back mase needs our prayers he is a beacon of hope in these evil days
bayo newwine
I listened to his new single, and it is indeed hip hop but he doesn't curse or rap in a bad way.
It's a clean song. he talks about his changes and how the whole rap game changed since he left it. enjoy

Song: Welcome Back
Typed by: AArsdam@aol.com

Welcome back, welcome back
Welcome back..

Weclome back (Oh! Oh!)
Yeah man, how you doin' (Come on, come on, come on)
You good? I know you like that (Yeah you good, you doin' good)
I know you like that (Oh!)
How long you been back man?
Welcome, welcome, welcome, welcome back

[Verse 1: Ma$e]
I see the girls in the club, they gettin' wild for me
And all the pretty chicks all wanna smile at me
These rap cats man they all got they style from me
And if I ever seen them then they probably bow to me
And when this beat - drop I know they gon' lean
World debut, I know they gon' fiend
Everything, Mississippi to the Palm Springs
Girls from brunettes down to blonde queens
These young boys don't know what a don mean
I'm just a bad boy gone clean
I'm the diamond chain choker, always remain sober
Don't drink liquor and all the games over
Need a plane, I explain it to my broker
Three bots in the hood top down, it ain't nova (My homie)
You know there's more man where that come from
Me and Kunta Love rollin' back to back in one

[Chorus]
See the names have all changed since I been around
But the game ain't the same since I left out
Ooh you know we need ya, ooh you know we need ya
Right here's where we need ya, right here's where we need ya
Welcome back..
Welcome back, welcome back, that thug's back (You know you like that)
Welcome back, welcome back, Harlem's back (You know you like that)
You know you like that
Welcome back, welcome back, that thug's back (You know you like that)
You know you like that
Welcome back, welcome back, Harlem's back (You know you like that)

[Verse 2: Ma$e]
See I rep the most high, still I'm the most fly
I win so much, they wanna know who I'm coached by
Everyday approached by chicks when I was on top
Wanna give me sosa, but I'm like don't try
I see the hisses and the disses when I go by
But see the misses on my wristses when I float by
Self control, and I can't tell you no lie
Tryin' to find a soulmate, you end up being so tired
I make my money man without the coca
Livin' the vida without the loca
I'm down south so they show me country love
And I ain't even country thug
The people give me daps and hugs, so it must be love
And I love the country grub
It feel good to hear people singing welcome back
And I ain't even sellin' the track, cause I'm that Harlem cat

[Chorus x2]
See the names have all changed since I been around
But the game ain't the same since I left out
Ooh you know we need ya, ooh you know we need ya
Right here's where we need ya, right here's where we need ya
Welcome back..
Welcome back, welcome back, that thug's back (You know you like that)
Welcome back, welcome back, Harlem's back (You know you like that)
You know you like that
Welcome back, welcome back, that thug's back (You know you like that)
You know you like that
Welcome back, welcome back, Harlem's back (You know you like that)

I just heard an interview with Mason calling in speaking with P Diddy to make it official "He is back"...he talks about all the hiatus and he was in la with a radio station and his single was at the charts...he told P Diddy to visit Jacobs (jewelerer) to get him some stuff because he has to come back to NYC just right...I have been trying to call SANE Ministries for a month and I only get an answering machine; I have been missing him at our church conferences since March 2004, but I think I saw his wife Twyla pregnant; are they still together; are they still running the Ministry; pls update our christian youths of today!
Tammie
welcome back! welcome back! welcome back! says the devil
Eric
Ma$e is back and has released his first track, "Welcome Back". He is singing hip hop and not christian or gospel rap.
Da Bol
I don't thint that he will come back! he is probabbly fulfilling what he wants through his ministry.besides if he comes back i think he will come back as a Gossple Rapper which is still alright wit me
anon
I heard the other day on the radio that MASE was comming back. They said he had contacted P. Diddy and was ready to make a return to the rap game. (insert sarcasm here>) I guess working for God just doesnt pay enough.
KEZ
Praise God!! We can no longer refer to Pastor Mason Betha as MA$E. He is a new creature and old things are passed away including his rap name. He is a Pastor that feeds his congregation with the infallible word of God. It is impossible to look at what God has done in his life and not see a complete 180 degree turn around. We must recognize him as a Pastor just as we recognize Bishop T.D. Jakes, Bishop Eddie Long, Juanita Bynum and the such.

I would like to say that is so good to see how God has anointed your life for his glory. Just remember to trust in him and put him in all that you do, and keep hold on keep praying and fasting. let go and let God, and the words of my pastor R.c. Lawson Everything is going to be alright.

Thank you
Alisha Hill
"He is now formaly a preacher at a nearbye church in new york. he says "I really needed God in my life at this tragic point" which i dont know what tragic."
Brittany
"He isnt a pastor in New York. He is a Pastor in Atlanta. He is the head of a ministry called SANE Ministries. That stands for Saving A Nation Endangered. He also just got a book out that he wrote. Check it out at amazon.com type in Mason Betha and it should come up!"
Brittany2
"He's currently pursuing his goals as an assistant pastor to his local town church and he also went back to college."
Nicole
"Mase has decided to try to undo all the wrong he did when he was a rapper. he has COMPLETELY turned his life over to the lord including selling all his belongings from his former life and giving all his money to the church. I heard Puffy is pretty pissed off at him, but Nas gives him props in his new album."
Babyblue
"MASE IS NOW, PASTOR MASON BETHA. HE IS PASTOR AT HIS OWN CHURCH IN ATLANTA CALLED SANES MINISTRIES, ON PEACH TREE. HE IS AN ORDAINED MINISTER, AND HE IS NOW MARRIED. HE ALSO HAS A NEW BOOK OUT CALLED REVELATIONS, IT TELLS US ALL. THANK YOU"
Vanessa Gardiner
"Mase has his own chruch in atlanta and has now preaching. mase has now found a Girl that he engaged to in may of 2001, and I beleive that they have gotten married now. I just finished his book. It's really good and interesting, it tells you how him and cam'ron where best friend at one time and noe in like all cam'ron songs he speaks bad of mase. But it doesn;t matter because mase is on to bigger and better things.

P.S I really respect your desion mase."

Jeff
"Is now Pastor Mason Betha. He is a great example to today's young people, of how God can come in and change your entire way of life. I read his book "Revelations" and it is an awesome testimony of God's delivering and saving power! May God Bless"
