One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after;
that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life  (Psalm 27:4)

Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them ...
is like a [wise] man which built a house, and digged deep, and laid the foundations on a rock:
and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it:
for it was founded upon a rock
(Luke 6:47-48)

Let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.
For other foundation can no man lay that is laid, which is Jesus Christ
(1 Corinthians 3:10b-11)

If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do? (Psalm 11:3)

The Family

Political Correctness: Marriage, Family, Children

Articles on the effects of Cultural Marxism on the family. The desire of the Frankfurt School was "to provoke socialist revolution. Their task, therefore, was swiftly as possible to undermine the Judaeo-Christian legacy. ... The School recommended ... encouraging the breakdown of the family. ... To further their aims they would attack the authority of the father, deny the specific roles of father and mother, and wrest away from families their rights as primary educators of their children ... [and] abolish all forms of male dominance..."

 

Marriage

Some Scriptures for Marriage

Husband and Wife: Equal and Different  (24 February 2016)

"I recently had a conversation with a precious sister in the Lord who suggested to me that a wife may do as she sees fit, with or without the agreement or blessing of her husband. Her reasons were the following..."

Marriage Is God's Finishing School  (14 June 2013)

"All marriages begin with two imperfect people. ... Men and women are created differently but complementary. Each has something (and is something) the other needs to make them complete. Each is designed to yield to the nature of the other in order to become whole..."

 

The Marriage Contract and Ceremony

Holy Matrimony  (June 2009)

"The marriage of one man to one woman is the oldest institution on earth, predating all religion and government, inaugurated in the Garden of Eden by the Creator Himself. ... The traditional view of marriage that has come down to us from antiquity is shared by peoples of every culture and language, and reflects quite well the Biblical definition of marriage as being only between a man and a woman. History, likewise, reveals that all governments and religions have assumed that marriage is an unalienable human mandate from God, thus pre-existing government, and that it is therefore beyond its jurisdiction..."

 

Husbands

Created to Need a Help Meet

I Need Her Counsel and Judgment  (15 October 2011)

"I will admit that early in our marriage I didn't want my wife's advice. At the time I felt that she was minimizing me in her criticism, so it angered Boss Hogg when she 'got out of her place' and took the lead. At least, that is the way I interpreted her suggestions..."

Loving Leadership

Male Passivity: The Root of All Evil  (1999)

"The well being of the whole creation rests on the proper functioning of the various authority arrangements that exist. ... The order that exists in the Godhead from all eternity is the model for the order that the Creator has built into His creation. When this order is violated, chaos and death result..."

Man, God's Deputy as Head of the Home  (1946)

"A man is like God in the sense that a woman is not like God. For example, God is masculine. God is always, in the Bible, called 'He' never 'Her'. He is called 'Father' not 'Mother'. Christ is called 'the Man Christ Jesus' not 'the woman'. He is called 'Bridegroom' not 'Bride', 'King' not 'queen', 'Prophet' not 'prophetess', 'Son' not 'daughter'. Christ was a man, a masculine Man. His body was a man's body. His work was a man's work. His temptations, a man's temptations..."

 

Wives

Created For Him?  (14 June 2013)

"We bring to [our] marriage ... many years of negative conditioning. Girls spend years watching their Moms dishonor Dad. The TV, movies, and modern culture are conditioning the next generation of girls to greater dishonor..."

 

Parents and Training Up Children

{  Quote here from Debi Pearl re boys taking care of mams etc  }

The Old Paths: Hope for the Family  (15 August 2017)

"Question from a Father:  I have raised three girls and they all turned out well. My last child is a boy who has just turned fourteen. I am seeing signs of trouble and need some advice. I don't think I know how to raise a boy. He is unhappy with his circumstances in life. He feels that I am deriving him of friends and opportunities to experience life. ... My greatest concern is that it seems I do not have his respect. We are really not friends. I feel like he think I am an impediment to his happiness. What can I do?..."

Small Plants and Little Caterpillars  (16 January 2016)

"It has been fashionable for some decades now, particularly amongst those who like to think of themselves as experts in child-rearing and/or politically progressive, to argue for child-centred parenting. They mean by this that the child's 'wishes and feelings' must be at the forefront of parenting..."

Six Ways Parents Destroy Their Children Without Trying  (14 December 2012)

"Get so busy providing for them that you don't have time for them  /  Set a bad example  /  Expressing displeasure regularly  /  Not enforcing boundaries  /  Leaving them to choose their friends  /  Not giving them any responsibility or holding them accountable"

Child Discipline  (February 2012)

"The following is excerpted from the 532-page book Keeping the Kids: How to Keep the Children from Falling Prey to the World ... a child-training manual, a marriage manual, a discipleship manual. It is a manual for parents, grandparents, pastors, and youth workers.

What Does it Mean To Be a Man?  (15 August 2006)

"[P]arents, what can you do to assure that your sons grow up to be real men? If your children are still under one year old, or better yet, if they are not yet born, you have the advantage, for manhood begins to develop at twelve months. This morning I drove past a father and son as they were working in the yard. The little fellow, not more than two years old, was pushing his plastic toy lawnmower alongside his daddy. He was already learning to a man's duty..."

 

Ladies Wear White Socks  (15 April 2004)

How Dr. Spock is Destroying America  (No Date)

"Spock's child rearing book Common Sense Book of Baby and Child Care, first published in 1946, sold 750,000 copies the first year, has since sold over 50 million copies, and is sixth in sales only to the Bible. Life magazine certified the depth of his influence, naming Spock among the 100 most important people of the twentieth century. Within a decade after Spock's first book, a perceptible change began to develop in American families..."

Defensive Parenting  (No Date)

"In this current generation I see too many people, young and old alike, who lack emotional resilience. When they were young, their parents obviously came to the rescue whenever another child upset them, and they defended them from anyone in authority who tried to hold them accountable for their behavior. It should be of no surprise that indulgent, hyper-defensive parenting is at the root of politically correct speech..."

Consistent Parenting

Seven Tricks to Staying Consistent on Discipline  (Updated March 2017)

"There is something the discipline experts all agree on: Consistency is the key. ... How can you be more consistent? Try these tips:..."

The Old Paths: Hope for the Family  (15 August 2017)

I don't think I know how to raise a boy. He is unhappy with his circumstances in life. He feels that I am deriving him of friends and opportunities to experience life. ... My greatest concern is that it seems I do not have his respect. We are really not friends. I feel like he think I am an impediment to his happiness. What can I do?..."

Patricide vs Patriarchy  (24 January 2001)

"Patricide is the act of killing our fathers. It can take many forms. Dishonor can be a form of patricide. To dishonor a father is to strike at one of the defining relationships in the universe - that of the Father and the Son. Revisionist history is a form of patricide. When historians attack the spiritual forefathers of a nation, or when they pervert the legacies of the past, they engage in a form of cultural patricide. But whether the act of patricide takes the form of physical murder, a dishonoring rejection of authority, or historical revisionism, the result is always the same - to cut off the future from the past and to ensure the destruction of the individual and the community..."

Spirit Warriors: Some Comments  (19 January 2010)

Homosexuality and the Family

Homosexuality and the Family  (02 August 2017)

"The biblical view of homosexual acts will be viewed by many today as draconian, intolerant and unthinkable. Indeed, as Jonathan Burnside points out regarding present sensibilities, the biblical references to sodomy 'will find themselves labeled as "texts of terror"', and certainly in the West, these parts of the Bible would be considered 'hate speech' by human rights commissions..."

The War on Mothers and Fathers  (26 September 2012)

"The push for special rights for homosexuals, including marriage and adoption rights, of necessity means the destruction of motherhood and fatherhood. Gendered parenthood, as has always been understood, is the latest casualty in this ongoing assault on children, parents, marriage, family, and society by the militants..."

A New Stolen Generation  (10 August 2012)

"Children are being stolen away from the two most important people they will ever know - their own biological mother and father. When this happens by accident we rightly show pity for them and seek to get them into the closest thing to that situation. Yet when we do it deliberately we call it 'a lifestyle choice' and 'diversity' and 'tolerance'..."

Stonewall Encourages Homosexuals to Adopt Children  (01 November 2010)

"Stonewall, a homosexual lobby group, has launched a guide for homosexual couples, offering advice on adoption, co-parenting, fostering and surrogacy. ... 'there's never been a better time for gay men to start a family'..."

Political Correctness: Gender Fascism

Articles on the effects of Cultural Marxism on the family. The desire of the Frankfurt School was "to provoke socialist revolution. Their task, therefore, was swiftly as possible to undermine the Judaeo-Christian legacy. ... The School recommended ... the teaching of sex and homosexuality to children. ... One of the main ideas of the Frankfurt School was to exploit Freud's idea of 'pansexualism' - the search for pleasure, the exploitation of the differences between the sexes, the overthrowing of traditional relationships between men and women..."

and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls
