Living Out Matthew 25

I watched another video from YouTuber Ruslan (I watch his content a lot) where he talks about Matthew Chapter 25. He made the video in response to Paul Washer and John MacArthur’s sermons on being persecuted. Persecution has been used as an excuse as to why so many Christians aren’t being good stewards with their time and money. I know for me, I fell into that trap numerous times. I allowed myself to be so heavenly-minded that I was no…

Moses – The Servant Leader

“Then the Lord said to Moses, ‘Go up to this mountain of Abarim, and see the land which I have given to the sons of Israel. When you have seen it, you too will be gathered to your people, as Aaron your brother was;’” – Numbers 27:12-13 [NASB]. The Consequences of Disobedience The Lord instructed Moses to go up on the mountain to view the Promised Land. His disobedience at the waters of Meribah in the wilderness of Zin will…

How I Cut Out Carbs and Got Rid of My Heartburn and Acid Reflux COMPLETELY

This Is How I Cut Out Carbs From My Diet and Got Rid of Heartburn and Acid Reflux COMPLETELY Anyone who is plagued with acid reflux or GERD knows how massively miserable heartburn can be. Of course, most humans can be susceptible to heartburn. Yet when it’s chronic and frequent, it is a (pun intended) gut-wrenching pain that’s often hard to ignore. How It Began Many members of my Dad’s side of the family have been afflicted with the agony…

Scott’s Newest Writing Project

  Hey, where has Scott been lately?” A few of you may have been wondering the above interrogative. Rest assured, I have not dropped off the map. In fact, the metaphorical map may be growing by leaps and bounds. In the past six months, many people have seen their COVID-19-inflicted semi-lockdown as a bringer of hours of freed-up time, with some lamentably scurrying for new hobbies and (gag) new Netflix series on which to binge. For me, the bulk of…

Always Be Teachable

“Poverty and disgrace come to him who ignores instruction, but whoever heeds reproof is honored.” – Proverbs 13:18 [ESV] During the early years of my first marriage, I was admittedly unskilled when it came to the “domestic arts”. Being a budding, young man in my early twenties, I had just barely begun living independently, and taking care of the house wasn’t exactly my forte. I’ll put it bluntly: I was a pizza-box-thrown-around-the-apartment, soda-cans-everywhere-kind of slob. So no doubt I lacked…

Interview With John Clark and Michael Bodine of Soulcon Ministries | Soulcon Operator Book Released!

Soulcon Ministries is a digital men’s ministry that encourages Christian men to abandon the watered-down confines of lukewarm faith and instead go all-in for Jesus Christ physically, mentally and spiritually. Soulcon was founded by US Navy veteran-turned fitness expert and personal trainer Cody Bobay after he saw the “couch potato” lives that your average, 21st Century guys – yes, even most evangelical men – practice on a regular basis in every area of their lives. To help encourage men to get…

Recommended Reading – My Top 11 Favorite Books

I love making lists of things, and it’s about time I make one on what I consider to be my all-time, top 10 (alright, 11), crème de la crème, favorite, most important books ever written. These encompass what I think is recommended reading for all my blog readers. When I compiled these, I noticed that all but one have to do with spirituality and that they are all non-fiction (with a fictional devotional story comprising of the second half of…

How My Wife and I Pray and Study the Bible Together

One of the most imperative things you can do with your spouse (this could also apply to a long-term boyfriend/girlfriend or fiancée/fiancé) is spending regular, quality “God time” with him or her. Doing so will strengthen and deepen your faith, and draw you closer to each other as you draw nearer to God. What does this entail, you might ask? It can include a certain amount of Bible reading, discussion and reflection, and praying together. I’ve decided to “peel back the…

Back to the Guitar: My 6-String History and Journey Back to Playing, Part 2

For those of you following along in this tale, here’s where we last let off: Married with two young children, I sold off all of my beloved guitar gear to stay afloat financially. The Van Halen-themed and guitar-oriented websites were decimated off of the interwebs. And my dream of ever making it professionally as a musician had sailed away almost a decade earlier. The practice of me performing music was personally dead, yet somewhere deep down in the recesses of…

Back to the Guitar: My 6-String History and Journey Back to Playing, Part 1

The topic of the following piece isn’t appropriately suited for my hot sauce blog, scottrobertsweb.com, and also it may not technically fit snuggly into the Christian author-oriented essaying of this site, scottroberts.org; but I’ll stick it on here because, well, I make the rules concerning what appears and what doesn’t, and you don’t. Ha! As the title of this post clearly spells out, I’m referring to playing my favorite musical instrument in the world: the guitar. History of Me and…

Why I Won’t Drink Alcohol Anymore

What I’m about to say is full of my own opinions along with my attempt at well-thought-out reasons why I do not drink alcoholic beverages. Except for point #6, these are not presented or implied that these are Christian doctrine or theology. Instead, they’re mainly personal arguments why I have no desire to touch the stuff. I wish to make a few important points before I start things off: A. Some people have natural inclinations towards becoming addicted to varying things…

A New Undertaking in Writing…and a New Beginning

Even though it doesn’t seem that long, I’ve been doing blogging for an entire decade, and then some. This whole adventure started with a general-purpose platform for my silly writing excursions on my “main” website of scottrobertsweb.com. You see, around 2006 and 2007, I, being a website designer, whipped together a rudimentary content management system (for you non-techies, I’m referring software such as WordPress that runs on the back-end). I hardly knew what the topic theme was, so basically winged…
