Family, the Backbone

Family, the Backbone

I believe it’s time for believers in Jesus to begin to speak up in the market place. We have for so long stayed quiet about important issues of the day and it’s resulted in more persecution of our beliefs and lifestyle.

Folks, we must realize you get nothing by keeping silent, it’s the ones that begin to speak up in a civil and legal way that get people’s attention!

One major issue that’s dear to my heart is the family. The family is the backbone of a thriving society.

You can trace the success of any prosperous nation right back to it strong family units.

In America more adults are now single than married. More children are born out of wedlock than in. Families have declined more in the last 50 years than in the previous 6,000 years.

This is truly a tragedy. But if you are the enemy, it’s his best strategy because if he can destroy strong godly family units, then he can defeat a nation without firing a single bullet.

STRONG FAMILIES ARE IMPORTANT!!!

The percentage of parents who are married in a given State is typically a stronger predictor of the State’s economic mobility, child poverty, and median family income than are the educational level, racial makeup, and age composition of its population.

We as believers in Jesus believe that the Bible states that strong families start with a husband and wife in marriage, that means according to the scriptures male and female.

They are the only ones that can produce offspring together.

Before any of us existed on this planet in the creation of mankind in the first book of the bible, the first chapter in the bible the 27th and 28th verse states:

27 So God created man in his own image,
    in the image of God he created him;
    male and female he created them.

28 And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” (ESV)

That is a true authentic marriage, any other union is not a marriage, period. If you want to argue about that, take it up with the scriptures and God Almighty not with me.

We are submissive to all the laws of the land, but when they contradict clear biblical teaching, as believers in Jesus we will go with what the scripture says.

He’s the creator of you and he is speaking his truth in the scriptures.

A family is established with a man and woman in marriage producing godly offspring. With the man leading, not in a dictatorial way but in a way that he loves his wife and children and provides the best for them, and the wife respecting her husband’s leadership. That is a healthy family unit according to God.

Any society that those types of families have grown and flourished in, is blessed spiritually, economically, and financially.

My wife and my goal is to help those type of families grow and flourish through our personal lives and our church work. We pray that you can join us in this campaign to evangelize our neighborhood cities, States, and eventually the world with this message of family!
