Winds of War

Original Headline from the Korean War circa 1952

Just in the last few hours, the United States has been threatened with a pre-emptive strike by the North Korean government of Kim Jung Un. We can only hope that the president and our nation's state department will avert such a hideous outcome as that. War is a serious thing. We must pray for our nation that we will have the wisdom to know what to do to stop this horror before it happens.

Not only is our nation being threatened with war, so are families that adhere to the Bible as their source. We have just finished our series at Oceanside that has to do with the Modern Family. Using the 21st Century Family as our standard, we found that the Bible still works as it has for thousands of years. Our families have fallen apart only since the philosophies of Dr. Benjamin Spock and Dr. Joyce Brothers have taken hold in our society since WWII. These family values were a shot across the bow of many believer's families. Instead of standing and fighting, many laid down and surrendered. The consequences are evident nearly everywhere we look. Some of these statistics in the narration are shocking.

This week, I read a portion of Point Man by Steve Farrar to my daughter Addie. Somehow in my mind, I thought I had already shared that portion of the book to nearly everyone. So, I decided that I would narrate that part of the book with pictures, sound effects, and background music from the movie We Were Soldiers and place it online for any and all to hear. It only takes a few minutes to listen to and it should bring tears to your eyes when you realize the importance and dangers of leading our families. This is our very own culture that is downright hostile to the biblical American family.

I present to you The War on the Biblical Family:

Let's take it to those who would want to destroy our Bible loving families. Start in your own home.
