Why Men Walk Away: Generational Prodigals We’re trapped in a vicious cycle. By we, I mean me. Well, not just me, but men, or at least a lot of men, if not most. Was that confusing? Welcome to the world of why men walk away. We’ll stand the gap for friends, coworkers and people we’ve never met before, but our families fade into the midst as America’s men walk away. Why do we do it, what are the costs, and most importantly, how do we fix this? Walk Away Gene Before I came to kn
I sorta figured my latest article was going to grab someone’s attention. It did. Lots of attention, but I am so appreciative of people sharing their heart along with their opinion. How about you? Have you checked out “Christians to LGBTQ: “Our sins are better than yours.” Let me know your thoughts. Do Good,
Scott I also mentioned the United Methodist Church’s big vote – Check that out Right Here. Your Mission Assignment Thanks for connecting with me here at The Bro Code. The
Hear All About It The message is loud and clear; “Our sins are better than your sins.” The absolution of sin by comparison resonates within Christian culture. Whether shouting behind stabbing fingers, or covered whispers between believers, we’ve placated ourselves with a false reality that homosexual sins are worse that our little indiscretions. Of course, that’s incorrect, so how do we stop focusing on the splinter in our neighbor’s eye, and deal with the plank in our own? S
Sin Transference | Do You Do It?
Do we take responsibility for our actions, or throw others under the bus like Adam did to Eve? Let’s live with intention and purpose by accepting responsibility for our sins, and asking forgiveness. It doesn’t make us bad, just human. Allow God to show you His love for you.
Much Love & Respect,
Scott The man said, “The woman you put here with me—she gave me some fruit from the tree, and I ate it.” ~ Genesis 3:12 Much Love & Respect, Scott #
16 Days of 31: Falling In The Gap I love to study the creation story in Genesis. The dynamics of that time set a generational chain reaction in motion that hasn’t stopped, nor will be stopped until the rapture. The Beginning There’s so much depth to the connection of Adam and Eve. As children, we’re taught a simple illustration of two people happily skipping through the garden until that nasty old serpent tricked Eve into taking a chomp out of the fruit. I guess in a nutshell
14 Days of 31: Put Product On It Over a year ago, I’d begun asking Leah to cut my hair. I couldn’t see spending $25 on it every 2 weeks. She reluctantly gave it a shot. I ended up with a shaved head. A Little Off The Sides No matter, it grew back and after a while I went back to sporting a non-shaved head style. But, Leah was back behind the clippers. So this weekend, I asked her to shorten it a bit. She zipped through with the clippers and was done with the usual zero on the
4 of 31 Days: Forgiving Is Kinda Big Deal Learning to forgive is kinda like a big deal. It’s also possibly the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do. I don’t mean giving lip service to someone so they’ll get off your back after insulting you. I’m talking about forgiveness in the truest sense of God’s word. Men Struggle I think most men struggle with it because we are under the impression that forgiving someone lets them off the hook for what they did to hurt us. We amp up in the
When I was a kid with six siblings, I loved to fight, mock and tease all of them no matter how much older some were. My goal was to torment them until they attacked. I didn’t care about the outcome, but I did care about the battle. My mother warned me against making ugly faces at them and said one day that ugly face would stick. Although she didn’t realize it, she was right on the mark about violating God’s law of judgments. The ugly nature we show others is what we will be s
I love how direct God is with us. I sat on the sideline for a season, but it wasn’t due to a lack of love for Christ, it was a fear of not knowing what to say to others about His redemptive love. Bottom line; I didn’t feel qualified. Thank God I learned He doesn’t call the qualified. He qualifies the called. No in between – All In!!! “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold no
Man Card I know what’s going on out there in the kingdom of dudes. You’re saying, “Scott, turn in your man card. You’re fighting for the other side.” Well, after my last article, Why Men Cheat, I can see the confusion among my counterparts. Based on the Page Views (a record high) and the clicked Likes and Comments (zero) I knew the message had touched a nerve. The intention wasn’t to be controversial, but to call out my brothers to commit to marital purity. Isn’t it weird whe
Anytime we begin to discuss pain or addiction in the public square, people get real quiet. This article that I wrote helped shake things up. Posted on 01-16-18 in Law Enforcement Today I Didn’t Know It was true 30 years ago and it’s still true today. The first time I was told, “Your badge will get you sex (he used the “p” word), and sex will get your badge,” was in the police academy. I kinda smiled because honestly, I didn’t have a clue what the sergeant meant. I wasn’t naïv
Chaplain Ronnie Melancon Do You Want Justice Or Mercy A lady went to a photographer to have her picture taken. When she saw the finished product, she didn’t like it. She asked the photographer to take her picture again. The photographer said, “Well lady, what’s wrong with it?” She said, “It doesn’t do me justice.” He looked at it, then looked at her and said, “Lady, you don’t need justice, what you need is some mercy!” Which shall it be; Justice or Mercy Anyone ever flash a b
