destruction of the family
In Genesis the purposes of God are introduced and fleshed out through the rest of the Old and New Testament.
The Fall that occurred in the garden is described. The purpose of God to redeem mankind is introduced.
Genesis 3:9 And the Lord God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?
10 And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.
11 And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?
12 And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.
13 And the Lord God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.
14 And the Lord God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:
15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
The purposes of God regarding the family are introduced.
Genesis 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply,
Since God’s purposes involve the family, why is the family under such attack?
What is presented here is not new information. There are those who have written on these topics in a much more scholarly way, but this is to simplify it, like a shopping list.
There are those who want to be in power.
To be in power, they need to weaken the opposition.
To be in power, they have to offer something to people so people will vote them into power.
They can offer money, OPM (other people’s money). Politicians get OPM through taxes.
Why would anyone need their money? If someone is prosperous, why would anyone need anything from the government?
For people to need the money, a weakened class needs to be created.
What is a weakened class? Single moms with children and no dad in the home would qualify.
So to create that class within society, the moral fiber of society needs to be broken down. Images of the Ten Commandments are taken out of the schools. Prayer and Bible are taken out of the schools. The sabbath is no longer respected. Sports are played in competition to church. The laws of God are not taught. The family dissolves.
The state takes care of the women and children through welfare. The men are left on the outside.
To make sure the men don’t rebel against the system they are drugged, feminized, entertained and pulled out of the loop of society. Finally, they are castrated through transgenderism.
Having created a weakened female class that looks to politicians for money, and a weakened male class that won’t rise up and break off the chains of this corrupted system, corrupted politicians hope to retain power.
Lately, there has been a certain amount of “revival” of manhood. Men are going to the gym. They’re getting buff. However, this manhood revival is only going so far. What place is given to these men who are defining manhood as merely becoming more muscular in this secular, post-Christian society? The state still needs these men to go around and get women pregnant so the women and children will be vassals of the state. However, the marriage covenant of God does not seemto be encouraged. It is manhood without virtue, the virtue of the covenant of marriage, the virtue of raising a family in the knowledge of the Lord.
2 Peter 1:4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
5 And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;
To sort of “seal the deal” and make sure that society is trapped into a bondage from which there is no escape, some extra measures being taken. Feminize the men but let them into the arena of women so that capable women cannot rise while men steal their prizes in unfair competitions. That keeps out a certain amount of female leadership. It puts male transgender voices in the marketplace instead of what would come through accomplished women. There is no question that throughout history that certain women have been put in place in certain times to accomplish things, Esther being one.
It is also the awareness of women who preserved certain men who were to become leaders. Moses’s mother is one. Without her, Moses would have perished. It was Moses’s mother who created the reed basket that preserved Moses. The willingness of Mary to go with Joseph to Egypt to protect the Christ child is another. How many women today would get up in the middle of the night at the behest of their husbands and travel to another country? The prophet Samuel (who anointed King David) was a product of Hannah’s prayers as her husband was clueless.
I Samuel 1:8 Then said Elkanah her husband to her, Hannah, why weepest thou? and why eatest thou not? and why is thy heart grieved? am not I better to thee than ten sons?
The greatest tragedy in King David’s life was the breaking of the marriage covenant in a maneuver that involved adultery and murder. While he was forgiven, there was a heavy price to pay. Will modern day society pay any less price for similar sins?
2 Samuel 12:1 And the Lord sent Nathan unto David. And he came unto him, and said unto him, There were two men in one city; the one rich, and the other poor.
2 The rich man had exceeding many flocks and herds:
3 But the poor man had nothing, save one little ewe lamb, which he had bought and nourished up: and it grew up together with him, and with his children; it did eat of his own meat, and drank of his own cup, and lay in his bosom, and was unto him as a daughter.
4 And there came a traveller unto the rich man, and he spared to take of his own flock and of his own herd, to dress for the wayfaring man that was come unto him; but took the poor man’s lamb, and dressed it for the man that was come to him.
5 And David’s anger was greatly kindled against the man; and he said to Nathan, As the Lord liveth, the man that hath done this thing shall surely die:
6 And he shall restore the lamb fourfold, because he did this thing, and because he had no pity.
7 And Nathan said to David, Thou art the man. Thus saith the Lord God of Israel, I anointed thee king over Israel, and I delivered thee out of the hand of Saul;
8 And I gave thee thy master’s house, and thy master’s wives into thy bosom, and gave thee the house of Israel and of Judah; and if that had been too little, I would moreover have given unto thee such and such things.
9 Wherefore hast thou despised the commandment of the Lord, to do evil in his sight? thou hast killed Uriah the Hittite with the sword, and hast taken his wife to be thy wife, and hast slain him with the sword of the children of Ammon.
10 Now therefore the sword shall never depart from thine house; because thou hast despised me, and hast taken the wife of Uriah the Hittite to be thy wife.
11 Thus saith the Lord, Behold, I will raise up evil against thee out of thine own house, and I will take thy wives before thine eyes, and give them unto thy neighbour, and he shall lie with thy wives in the sight of this sun.
12 For thou didst it secretly: but I will do this thing before all Israel, and before the sun.
13 And David said unto Nathan, I have sinned against the Lord. And Nathan said unto David, The Lord also hath put away thy sin; thou shalt not die.
14 Howbeit, because by this deed thou hast given great occasion to the enemies of the Lord to blaspheme, the child also that is born unto thee shall surely die.
You will notice how much the left and the left stream media focuses on “perception.” It doesn’t mean whatever is being discussed is factual. The facts can actually be the opposite in reality. But if your perception can be changed, you will operate on perception and not facts. The left tries to create the perception (among other perceptions they put forth) that marriage and the family is not needed. But God created the family. For solid lives and a solid society, things have to be done God’s way.
Matthew 7:24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:
27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine:
29 For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.
