What Happened To The Family?

“For this people’s heart is waxed gross,

And their ears are dull of hearing, and

Their eyes they have closed; lest at any

   Time they should see with their eyes, and

         Hear with their ears, and should understand

     With their heart, and should be converted,

And I should heal them.”

                        Matthew 13: 15

It appears that the United States has a deep and upsetting problem.  The concept of the home has deteriorated.  One could term this as the topsy-turvy idea of marriage.  The family of a male, a female and children is not the norm in many places.

What has sprung up is a shaking of that which is the family.

When a man and female live together it is called a relationship, one can easily follow this in a biblical content as fornication.  There was a time when it appeared, as this was a black sin.  Then it was the problem of Hispanics who were having children out of wedlock.

Your author lives in a geographical area that is now more than 50% Hispanic.  The young men and young women who are Hispanic do not hesitate to state they have a “relationship”.  Since there is no enforcement of the immigration laws these people bring with them the morals of Mexico or some other Central American country.  The family life is disrupted by the young.

Next comes the white Anglo-Saxon protestant (USAP) that are fast crumbling into chaos.  Young women who believe they must have a boyfriend or a baby to show they can breed are at a disadvantage.  To be popular they believe intercourse is the way to live in this society .  This is obviously a lie.

The basic concept of free sex is a promotion by the media.  When you turn on the TV notice how it promotes sexual promiscuity.  Unless everything but the nipples are exposed by women then they are prudes.  When you are at the local mall notice how short the shorts are.  What all this has made women appear, as is a whore.  The men touch and paw women to show how interested they are to that female.

What this illustrates is a moral decadence in society.  The result is not respect for themselves and the past.  There is little or no restraint.

 Ultimately such general actions will cause results that will be disastrous economically, socially, and morally.


 The body of Christ will crater unless it gets hold of the situation.  Each of the different protestant groups has decreased in number in the last decade.  This includes the Methodist, Presbyterians, Disciples, Episcopal and as well as the Romanist.  The Romanist cannot even get enough priests for their diocese.  They must import them from Africa and the Philippines.

 Often when a Christian confronts fornicators and adulterers they will be told it is none of their business and these people have their rights to do as they please. As a Christian I have a right to speak up and condemn sin as well as the sinner. You see I have another interest also.  My tax dollars are being used to care for these people and their children.  It is pacifically  my money that is being spent.  Here are some glaring examples

  • Medicare
  • Medicaid
  • Child care
  • Free lunches
  • Affirmative action
  • Prisons
  • Food stamps
  • HUD
  • Medical care
  • Buses for the city
  • Police help
  • Grants for buildings
  • Other area but not known
  • Court system

 When was the last time you asked your pastor, preacher or priest to speak on the general subject?  My guess is never.  The reason is that you bought into the sin of fornication and adultery.

 It is a teaching of scripture that there are reasons when it does not rain.  There is a reason.

 Moses told the children of Israel to stay close to the Lord or some catastrophe would happen.  See Deuteronomy 11:16-17

             “Take heed to yourself that your heart be not deceived, and ye             Turn aside, and serve other gods, and worship them; And then the

           Lord’s wrath be kindled against you, and he shut up the heaven,

            That there be no rain, and that the land yield not her fruit; and

            Lest ye perish quickly from off the good land which the Lord giveth you.”

 Have you ever wondered why California is going through a drought?  It is a citadel of homosexuality, adultry, fornication and promiscuous living.

It was not enough that Moses said it, but then Amos 4:7 repeats this:

“As they were increased, so they sinned against me; therefore

            will I change their glory into shame.?”

 It does not matter whether you believe it or not.  The Bible says this with great force.  Yes, the El Nino and/or La Nina are set but what is the force behind each one of these?

People will argue that was for only the people of Israel during that time.  Nothing could be farther from the truth.  When Jesus was  on this earth not once did he ever utter any remark that we are to set aside the moral law set out by Moses.  Our Lord spoke to this issue:  See John 7: 17-19

“If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether

            it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.  He that speaketh of himself

            seeketh his own glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is    in him.  Did not Moses give you the law, and yet none of you keepeth the law?

            Why go ye about to kill me?”


The text for this blog is found in Matthew 13:15.  It bears repeating:

“For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing,

            and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their

            eyes , and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and

            should be converted, and I should heal them..”

 What Matthew states is that we must be healed.  What is discussed is we will be forgiven.  It was Mark 4:12 that helps us.  The confession must be made we are sinners.

“That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear,

             and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their

             sins should be forgiven them.”

 The place we live in is a sin sick world.

Our families are in disarray .  Here are some sensible suggestions:

  •  Eat at the table at least twice a day
  • Mother’s stop working outside the home
  • Acquire a home school course
  • Fathers turn off the television of any sports
  • Fathers instruct your children in a hands on trade
  • Discuss the Bible principles
  • Go to church every week
  • Openly read the Bible

The positive steps for restoration of the New Testament Church should be in the home.  The family must be Christ educated.

Do I think the majority will change?  No!  Do I think  Paul’s  rule will be adopted?  No!

I think it will be 20% of the 100% will accept this.  This means it will be a lie told by the majority!

There is a huge difference in conversion and pardon.  Man states he has changed.  God gives the pardon.

One thing that I ask my readers to do is look around you and observe what is and what did happen.  Actually the Bible recounts the events.  Further it is easy to see the facts.

The truth is each reader and this writer are not long for this planet.  There are only a few things that will continue to do after we return to the earth from whence we came.  Here they are:

  • Our Family
  • Our reputation
  • Our work for God

The rest is garbage.

Do not let the world destroy you and your family.  It will if it can.

There is one thing I would like for you to take with you from this blog.  Keep the world out of your life.  Let God be the center.

           “ Rescue the perishing, care for the dying,

               Snatch them in pity from sin and the grave,

              Weep o’er the erring one, lift up the fallen,

              Tell them of Jesus the mighty to save.

              Rescue the perishing, care for the dying,

             Jesus is merciful, Jesus will save.”
