In Hillary Clinton’s book, ‘It Takes a Village’ she makes very clear that she believes that families in America should not be able to raise their children, apart from the supervision of the government. The goal of deep indoctrination of our children is an agenda that liberals desire to enforce, and Christians should be aware. Their goal is to get children to question their parents, gender, God, and all biblical realities. Christians must reject these evil ideas, and vote against these people. The greatest thing that Christians can do for their country is make the traditional Christian family great again.
Our society has drifted so far from biblical truth, and it shows in our churches. Single-parent homes, divorce, and unwed parents plague the church. The Bible is clear that God despises these things, and the world promotes these things. And it is a sad reality that the world has influenced the church the way that it has, rather than the church influencing the world. The best way that we can begin to influence, and transform the world is to make the traditional Christian family great again.
The only hope for our families isn’t found in a ‘7-Ways to Get Your Kids Motivated to Clean Their Room’ book. The only hope for our families is to realize our great need to submit to the Scriptures. We need biblical values in our homes. We need the Scriptures set before our eyes, and the eyes of our children frequently. When we eat, we should eat the Scriptures. When we make decisions, we should consult the Scriptures. When we do anything at all, we should never move before consulting the Scriptures. Only the Scriptures can make the Christian family great again.
The solution to our countries problems are not complicated. It’s not programs, it’s not psychology, it’s not government-funded daycares, it’s obedience to a few simple biblical truths. How can we make the Christian family great again? Here’s 4 foundational ways:
- Realize the reality of God’s design for the wedded, two-parent home:
“Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterous.” -Hebrews 13:4
The world is influencing our views of the home, and we are rapidly falling away from His design. We forget the reality of God’s justice that he will judge fornicators, adulterers, and all of the sexually immoral. Biblical Christianity is not single-motherhood, or unwed parents. It is a biological man, and a biological woman, married according to the laws of the land. Anything else is a sinful lifestyle that God does not approve of. Getting married, according to the laws of the land, is the first step in making the Christian family great again.
2. Constantly, consistently, and diligently teach our children the Scriptures.
“You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.” -Deuteronomy 6:7
The Scriptures should be on our minds, in our mouths, at all times in the home. When we awake, the Scriptures should be the primary focus. The primary focus should not be the television, it should be the Word. It sounds difficult, but it isn’t when you love the Lord. Anyone who loves the Lord loves His voice, and that is the written Word Of God. Our children’s greatest need is to hear God’s voice frequently through what is written. If there is no Word, there is no life in the home. Constantly teaching our children the Scriptures is vital in making the Christian family great again.
3. Discipline our children when they do wrong:
“Do not withhold discipline from a child; if you strike him with a rod, he will not die. If you strike him with the rod, you will save his soul from Sheol.” -Proverbs 23:13-14
Our society hinges on the way in which we discipline our children. Not only that, but life and death hang in the balance for them. Children left to their depravity, for years without discipline, grow up to be radically God-hating. Also, parents who do not discipline their children, provide wrong views of God. God is a just and righteous God, who disciplines those whom He loves. Therefore, parents, who are God’s representative in the home, skew their children’s view of who God is when they do not discipline them. They set the course for a disobedient, rebellious life, not serving the Lord. Discipline your children if you love them, and do not be surprised at the outcome if you don’t. Disciplining our children is one way in which we make the Christian family great again.
4. Do not provoke them to anger:
“Fathers, do not provoke your children, lest they become discouraged.” -Colossians 3:21
Getting your children to fear, love, and enjoy the Lord is the goal of parenting. Provoking them to anger, pushing their buttons, discouraging them will corrode their heart against you, and against the Lord. We want our children to fear disobeying, love obeying, and enjoy God according to the Word, all the days of their life. The Bible makes clear that provocation has no place in the Christian home. Not provoking our children is key to making the Christian family great again.
If we are going to make America great again, we must make the Christian family great again. Two parents, committed to raising their children in the fear and admonition of the Lord. We have drifted so far from biblical realities that this is offensive to people, even professing Christians. This should not be so. When presented with these biblical realities, if we profess to know Christ, there should be absolutely no, “Yeah, but’s” about it. This is God’s design for our homes, and until we submit to His design, our society will continue to decay.
Make America great again, by making the Christian family great again.
