Fight!

“Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.” – 1 Timothy 6:12 [KJV] I often wonder about our forefathers in the faith and imagine how they would characterize this generation of Christianity and how we have handled the foundation they laid and the fruit they labored to obtain. History is filled with the testimonies of remarkable heroes of the faith who withstood insurmountable…

Do We Meditate On God’s Word?

Last Sunday, my Sunday School lesson was on meditation. The pastor made a challenge on how often we use our phones. Out of everyone in the classroom, the pastor’s time on his device was actually the highest! We undoubtedly live in the most distracted time in human history. People spend more time on their smartphones or other electronic devices than with actual human beings. When you live in a society with everything at your fingertips, plus a natural desire to…

Are You Working the Land That God Has Given You?

“Whoever works his land will have plenty of bread, but he who follows worthless pursuits will have plenty of poverty. “ – Proverbs 28:19 [ESV] In the past few weeks, I’ve been looking for online side hustles. Outside of writing for ScottRoberts.org, I’m scouting out other ways of earning money online, i.e. working a remote job or finding another freelancing job. I knew being a freelance Christian blogger wasn’t going to be feasible for me, so I’m been looking for…

Christian Fireteams Guide – What Is It In Men’s Discipleship? Warrior Disciple Preview

The following is a preview guide for my upcoming men’s ministry book, Warrior Disciple. As it pertains to discipleship, it discusses what a fireteam is, how to form a fireteam, and how to conduct your fireteam meetings. Christian discipleship is the belief and act of following Jesus Christ with your whole life. Since we as disciples are commanded to create other disciples (Matthew 28:19-20), making sure that our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ are learning, growing, and feeling supported…

Why Friends Matter

“Perfume and incense bring joy to the heart, and the pleasantness of a friend springs from their heartfelt advice.” – Proverbs 27:9 [ESV] “How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity!” – Psalm 133:1 [ESV] “A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for a time of adversity.” – Proverbs 17:17 [ESV] “Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down,…

Don’t Be Too Close-Minded For God

“1 Jesus knew the Pharisees had heard that he was baptizing and making more disciples than John 2 (though Jesus himself didn’t baptize them—his disciples did). 3 So he left Judea and returned to Galilee. 4 He had to go through Samaria on the way. 5 Eventually he came to the Samaritan village of Sychar, near the field that Jacob gave to his son Joseph. 6 Jacob’s well was there; and Jesus, tired from the long walk, sat wearily beside…

How We Lose Our Freedom

“Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.” – Galatians 5:1 [KJV] Last night, I was at a Bible study, and the pastor mentioned Galatians 5:1 concerning how we, as born-again Christians, can be trapped in bondage. Too often, believers think that just because they’re free in Christ, they can do anything in the world they want. God set us free to avoid sin, not indulge…

Should We Censor Other People?

In today’s society, cancel culture has become a common thing. Cancel culture is all about censoring people we don’t like just because they said something that offended us. Cancel culture started off being a well-intended concept of distancing yourself from destructive individuals, but then it started to become more dogmatic as people on the left wanted to nitpick every little thing someone said that’s not politically correct and ruin their lives forever. I’m afraid I have to disagree that we…

Are We Free?

“Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants of God.” – 1 Peter 2:16 [ESV] Of all the words, phrases, and expressions taken out of context in this generation, I believe the word “Freedom” must be at the very top. Sadly, it’s a significant detriment to the advancement of the Kingdom of God. The World and the world system misuse the terms grace, love, peace, and goodness and have…

Don’t Be Hardened By The Cares Of Life

“Very truly I tell you, you will weep and mourn while the world rejoices. You will grieve, but your grief will turn to joy. A woman giving birth to a child has pain because her time has come; but when her baby is born she forgets the anguish because of her joy that a child is born into the world. So with you: Now is your time of grief, but I will see you again and you will rejoice, and…

Andrew Tate – What Makes A Fake Christian

Yesterday I watched a video of a Christian YouTuber exposing American-British Internet personality and former professional kickboxer Andrew Tate. This YouTuber reacted to Andrew Tate converting from Orthodox Christianity to Islam. To many, it was a surprise, but I knew Tate would eventually denounce Christianity based on his persona and his admiration for Islam. The reason he left his Christian faith was that he felt that Christians tolerate too much sin. Tate used an example of a Methodist church allowing…

Warrior Disciple Book Update

Here’s a brief update on my forthcoming men’s ministry book, Warrior Disciple. I’ve spent much time in prayer, consultation with several other Christian author friends, deliberation, and consideration, all in trying to figure out how to get published within a reasonable amount of time and to be able to maintain enough creative control to be able to get the product that men’s ministries need. I was faced with three major avenues of publishing. One, I could strive to get a…

Wishy Washy Christians

“A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.” – James 1:8 [KJV ] “Christianity” has been used as a fashionable term by many celebrities and entertainers. True biblical, evangelical Christianity may have declined in the last few decades, but it’s still widely popular to identify with among many Americans. Lots of people grew up in a time and setting where calling yourself a Christian was normalized despite only attending church once a year. In the South, it’s pretty…

Not Better, Different

“And just as we have borne the image of the man made of dust, we will also bear the image of the heavenly man.” – 1 Corinthians 15:49 [HCSB] It is noble for a man to desire to be better than he is currently. Too often, we settle for minor improvements in ourselves and reason we’ve done enough change by virtue of our past behavior; however, this isn’t enough. It’s commendable, I say, for a man to seek to be…

How Christians Should Approach Politics Blog

A few days ago, I saw a heated Christian debate about politics with two prominent Christian worship leaders. One believed Christians should stay out of political discourse, and another felt it was just a cop-out to appeal to the world. I don’t engage with much politics these days, but there’s an argument that can be made on both sides. Christians need to be involved in our communities as the salt and light of the world, but we also don’t want…

The Benefits of a Grateful Heart

“A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.” – Proverbs 17:22 [KJV] In the times we are living in right now, if you want reasons to be depressed, anxious, and fearful, you won’t fall short of finding them. Conversely, with everything going on around the world, especially relating to the devastating impact of COVID-19, it is almost impossible to have a positive outlook on the future. Furthermore, from earthquakes to hurricanes and civil…
