POINT 6: THE FAMILY
Here are some quotes, depicting dire need of producing moral families:
– “The way you help heal the world is you start with your own family”. Mother Teresa

– Mohandas Gandhi once said, “If we are to teach real peace in this world, and if we are to carry on a real war against war, we shall have to begin with the children.”
– The most important of the Lord’s work you will ever do will be the work you do within the walls of your own home. Harold B. Lee

Deborah Butler said:

The home or family is the basic unit of all society. Strong families are important for the success of society and the success of the Church. When you have a society as we have now, that doesn’t recognize the family, that society will eventually fall apart. (Deborah Butler)

And when you have a particular church that doesn’t recognize the family or the importance of the home life, you will have an unsuccessful church. (Deborah Butler)

FAMILY/COMMUNITY BUILDING

God created us to be “fruitful and multiply”. Goodness and forgiveness should be the fruit we produce though the Spirit, and not selfishness, greed, and hatred. KEEP BOTH THE CHURCH AND FAMILY STRONG so we can go about rebuilding this country and world.

Only through schools and parents can the child learn right from wrong, in significance to goodness and forgiveness, proven in the life of Jesus and His death on the cross.

Churches are comprised of families, which consists of parents and children. Rebellious children are developed when schools and parents teach “junk” rather than goodness, love, and forgiveness.

Families and churches of today must lead families and churches of tomorrow toward goodness and forgiveness. It not, our future leaders’ sinful natures will lead them to endless acts of retribution.

Leaders of future generations must be taught at an early age to build habits of God-centered living (no selfishness, greed, hatred.)

According to Adam Smith, ‘To feel much for others and little for ourselves; to restrain our selfishness and exercise our benevolent affections, constitute the perfection of human nature”.

People in the CHURCH are also FAMILY members in their home, as well as being members of SOCIETY. Thus, when the moral character of the CHURCH’s members is changed, also affected is FAMILY people and society members. Since moral character of an individual can be changed for the worst or better, it is critical that the CHURCH is right, to make families and citizens of society morally right. If the CHURCH is not teaching LOVE and SANCTIFICATION to family parents and children, as well as to society, the world thus, suffers.

A house needs to be built with a stable foundation to remain firm in spite of the floodwaters of life. If our children – future leaders and future parents of society – are not being taught the dire need of “obedience” and “loving unconditionally”, we are setting them up with more detrimental unnecessary hardships, failures, and destruction.

Freedom of the human race happens when man choose obedience, LOVE, and surrender to the Holy Spirit, over sin, selfishness, hatred, and retribution.

Galatians 5:16, “So I say, let the Holy Spirit guide your lives. Then you won’t be doing what your sinful nature craves.”
