Great Families

DAVID SAID: "God setteth the solitary in families" (Psa.68:6)
PAUL SAID: "Let every man have his own wife and let every woman have her own husband" (1 Cor 7:2)

CHAS. H SPURGEON "When home is ruled according to God"s word, angels might be asked to stay with us and they would not find themselves out of their element "

GOD IS PRO-FAMILY - BIBLE IS PRO-FAMILY

JESUS SAID " Whosoever heareth these sayings of mine and doeth them I liken him unto a wise man who built his (HOUSE) on a rock.

Lot's of homes are on the ROCKS but they need to be on THE ROCK.
- R. G. Lee " Divorce No ! Murder, Yes !
- One lady said she was going to check at Court House to see if their marriage license might have expired.
- Man - married 15 years and the Lord took her - married again 10 years and the Lord took her - 3rd. time has been married now 5 years, He told the Lord. " Anytime you want her Lord you can have her."

SOCIAL ACTIVISTS & LIBERAL THINKERS want to redefine the family

-NATIONAL CONFERENCE ON FAMILY SEVERAL YEARS AGO:
- TWO homosexuals living together constituted a family.
- Two Lesbians same.. COUPLE living together.. unmarried

1. THE FOUNDATION OF THE HOME.. JESUS ANSWERED the Religious philosophers of His day saying "Have ye not read that He which made them at the beginning made them MALE and FEMALE, and said For this cause Shall a man leave his mother and father and shall cleave to his wife and they twain shall be one flesh. Wherefore they are no more twain but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together let no man put asunder." (Matt.19:4 - 6)

- Distinction between them ..Male & Female..Electricity + - like poles repell
- Unisex philosophy has spread across the world..
- Up to now everything GOOD. Light, Land & sea, Sun & moon, Whales & birds, animals, everything
- Now something NOT GOOD. Adam Alone..

THREE BASIC DECISIONS OF LIFE.
When will I die ?
What shall I do with my life ?
Who shall I spend my life with ?

HOME TO BE SET UP ON BIBLICAL GROUNDS:
1. ONLY BELIEVERS SHOULD MARRY.
2. JUST LOVE DOES NOT JUSTIFY MARRIAGE (SIT. ETHICS)
3. PREGNANCY DOES NOT JUSTIFY MARRIAGE.
4. FAMILY TRADITIONS ARE NOT ALWAYS BIBLICAL.
5. SOCIAL PLANNERS ARE USUALLY NOT BIBLICAL.
6. THE RIGHTS CROWD ARE POOR MARRIAGE RISKS.

2. THE FOE OF THE FAMILY. (GENESIS 3:1 - 7)
- DEVIL told Eve she would be like God.. Her own God..Boss
- We live in the " ME " generation.

A. HE TRIED TO TALK THE WOMAN OUT OF HER PLACE..BE GOD !
- Needs security..especially when she gets a little age on.
- Mothering and homemaking instinct.
- Needs to feel loved.
- Needs understanding and sympathy.
- Thoughtful in little things (flowers, candy, dinner,birthday
- Verbal Reassurance.
- Physical attention.
- Positive Attitude.
- Feel Needed..Worth something
- Assurance that her man is right with God.

B. HE TRIED TO UNDERMINE ADAMS PLACE TOO. MAN'S PLACE IS:

- He is the High Priest..Accountable to God..
- Not a dictator but a leader.
- Must set up guidelines
- Assume Authority ( Somebody will be in charge.HE,SHE, THEM)
- Delegate Responsibility ( involve everybody)
- Supervise. ( Right on top of things)
- Ego needs building
- physical needs ( food and love) feed him.

3. FUNCTION OF THE FAMILY. EPH. 5:25-28
FIVE THINGS SEEN HERE............
A. POSSIBILITY OF A CONTINUING LOVE. (V.25)
B. PICTURE OF LOVE. (V. 25) "As Christ loved"
C. PRICE OF LOVE. (V. 25) "gave Himself for it"
D. PROFIT OF LOVE. (V. 27) " Present it to Himself "
E. PARTICULARS OF LOVE. " As self" (V.28)
