Family Matters

Tuesday, October 9, 2012 | Comments (4)

For the last several years, we’ve had a front-row seat to a vicious, violent attack on one of the Lord’s most precious institutions. And make no mistake about it—the family, as established by the Lord, is under attack.

The assault is waged on many fronts—homosexual marriage, pervasive immorality, rampant divorce, and even the widespread acceptance of unwed couples and children born outside of marriage. They all chip away at God’s design for the family. The Lord created marriage as an image of His love and care for His people—our sinful society has turned it into a canvas for wickedness and perversion.

When he was recently in studio, we asked John MacArthur what’s most important about God’s design for the family, and what dangers face a society that rejects it. Here’s what he said:

Not long ago, we featured a blog series about the importance of biblical marriage and God’s design for the family. You can find all those posts collected on our series page.

And you can find further teaching on the subject in John MacArthur’s landmark series, The Fulfilled Family.

Wow I am very thankful to see this blog concerning the family ! I need to take the time to visit this website more often ! Being a new husband and father of a 5 week old girl ; this is the most serious and important subject that has been on my heart and mind ! It is such a great honor and privilege to be a parent , but the challenges ahead are weighing heavy already. I so wish I could find a body of true christian believers to fellowship with here in San Antonio ! I hope the congregation and church family of Grace church are truly thankful for the faithful elders and Minister that they have ! Thank you for preaching the truth !

Mr. Stillman, you can try looking on Pastor MacArthur's website from the Master's Seminary where it lists the graduates and where they have gone to minister. Also the PCA website and the Southern Baptist Convention website they both give lists of their churches in different states. Finding a strong church that stays true to God's Word is very difficult but very important. Keep yourself connected with strong ministries such as Johns, R.C. Sproul, Steven Lawson, Alistair begg, Ligon Duncan just to name a few to replenish what may be missing in your local congregation. I hope this helps. In His name. Jessica Collins
