Family Life Library

It is one of the most commonly ignored common sayings of today that family life has been devastated over the last four decades.   The most important change that could happen in America (or the West) would be for fathers to assume their role under God as the spiritual leaders of their families, and for families to become the center of religious life, not the churches.  That would do more to resurrect the impact of the Church than anything else I can think of. 

The primary problem has been the collapse of the Biblical worldview, and of our sense of being made in the Image of God.  Until this is restored (and it will be), we will continue to wander in the wasteland.  Nothing short of the Imago Dei can restore and rebuild the sense of family in the face of the acid culture of doubt and despair which secularism and paganism will always give us. 

The flourishing of family life depends, in the end, on the Image of God, because that image is itself a family image.   We will be developing that theme in the Yahweh or the Great Mother? Library.  See the "Gender Prayer" for some hints on the Imago Dei

(No-Fault) Divorce - Feminism's Crowning Achievement --  Rick Scarborough  This attack on marriage is one of the great issue of our time.  It is an attack on the Image of God -- in which we are made, male and female.  

Dennis Prager on Homosexual Marriage --  We have a disaster of major proportions staring us in the face.  And what is our so-called "conservative" leadership going about it?  Where is the Church? 

Games, Children, & Death -- telling children when they should die....     The obscene use of the "carbon footprint..." 

Illegal Attack on Family -  Dr. Ted Baehr --  A powerful defense of Biblical marriage vs. civil government control.  The role of civil government is to administer the laws God has already given us, not to invent its own.  

Home: Seeing the Everyday -- Home, Family, & Holy Trinity, the beginning and end of all things.   See Psychology, Salvation, & the Ordination of Women for summary of man- & womanhood.  

Parents & TEENS favor Abstinence over Promiscuity --  Under pressure from researchers, educators, and parent groups, Health & Human Services has released its full report "National Survey of Adolescents and Their Parents: Attitudes and Opinions About Sex and Abstinence" after originally limiting access to a brief summary.  One thousand students and an involved parent of each were questioned concerning parent and peer influence and communication on teen sexual behavior, revealing 70% of parents and 60% of teens supporting pre-marital abstinence. 

Dennis Prager - Judaism's Sexual Revolution - Why Judaism Rejected Homosexuality --  A classic on the subject of human sexuality.

Fathering - Masculinity

        The empirical evidence for the Biblical sacramental nature of life. 

So, Just how important is Fathering? --  Mark Alexander in Townhall 

Fathers into Felons...    Steve Baskerville  ---   on the coming cultural crunch.  An amazing statement of the nature of marriage and what we have done to it.   When the men wake up to what is being done, watch out.  Christians, where are you in this fray???  When men become Godly spiritual leaders of their families, in most cases, they will be bringing converted children to church, not little pagans, waiting for the church to convert them. 

Rejecting our fathers, hating our country -- by Bob Just --  Were are we going, America?  Do you want to go there?

The Boys Project -- bringing our boys back into reality and life in a culture which is persistently (and often deliberately) demeaning boyhood and masculinity.  Manhood and masculinity does not put up with the oppressiveness of centralization of culture and government.  That is a major reason why the globalist strategy has been the subversion of masculinity and the propagation of feminism.  Both feminism and centralized government enervate a people, rob them of initiative, independence, intellectual prowess, and courage.  Look at Europe.  The Boys Project is setting about to help remedy that.  I hope that they will pay substantial attention to the Biblical worldview, which has given us the only workable capacity to unify masculine and feminine -- because we are made in the Image of God -- male and female.  In God masculine and feminine are absolutely wedded, and they are meant to be among us on earth as well.   Go to:  Sexuality Libraries   

The Power of Redeemed Fatherhood --  Easy Eddie and Butch O'Hare. 

The Importance of Fathers....   Fathers need to be fathers, not just  "friends".   Children need spiritual and moral discipline, someone to butt up against, not a weakling "buddy"  They need someone who believes that some things are worth standing for. 

R. J. Rushdoony - Biblical View of "Vocation & Work" -- a good read.

What is Love???  --- Children's version.  

What we are doing to our Children...   Betrayal.   The sad and tragic story of parents and teachers and clergy who have lost their way.  We no longer know how raise children.  Where are the fathers who will stand up and defend their children?  Where are the spiritual warriors who know the difference between right and wrong???   

Free Teens in the News   "A 100% virgin"-That's how Demetrius Terry of Free Teens of Jersey City, NJ proudly described himself in news coverage of the abstinence program's success in local schools.  Birth rates in his hometown among unmarried 10-19 year-olds dropped 37 percent between 1998 and 2005.    
            Yes!! This is a winnable battle if Christians learn how to marshal and present evidence  (for Pete's sake!!!).  Nothing convinces like a winsome testimony!
