Scripture Informed and Gospel Centered

The Word of God says, “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training, in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work” (2 Timothy 3:16-17). It also says, “His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called. us to his own glory and excellence” (2 Peter 1:3). 

Therefore, the Men’s Discipleship Blog team believes that the Word of God is directly given to mankind by God and provides all that we need for life. We desires to see our readers engage in the powerful, healing Word of God by pursuing Him faithfully and applying His Word to present life circumstances. Whether it’s contemplating a new job, grieving the death of a loved one, or overcoming sin, the Word of God has everything needed to be equipped, and we hope to show you that truth.  


We are not a licensed counseling agency, nor are we psychologically or medically trained therapists. We offer ‘pastoral’ counseling intended to bring life change through heart change.

Conflict on Social Media

Conflict on Social Media

Social media is a lousy medium for substance. Airing out a conflict is about the most foolish thing a Christian can do. A person persistent in airing their gripes and complaints against others soon gains a reputation that is hard to shake.
