Father’s Day. We live in a homogenized society today. The land of the free and the home of the brave has been turned into the land of whoever and the home of “stay as long as you want”. America is in a sad state of affairs today as the Christian foundation has eroded in our families and therefore our Nation. There is no declaration of what’s right and absolute. There is an attack on the family in this homogenized society when what we have nationally and spiritually has been diluted to exclude God. The first thing God established was the family unit because that is the foundation of our growth and learning about God to propagate what He means in our lives. There was an article written by Nicholas von Hoffman entitled the “Mush God”. It said “Here is the key God of western civilization today. The mush god has no theology to speak of—being a cream-of-wheat divinity. The mush god has no particular credo, no tenets of faith, nothing that would make it difficult for the believer and unbeliever alike to lower one’s head when the temporary chairman tells the Reverend Rabbi Father Mufti or so and so to lead us in an innocuous, harmless prayer. For this god of public occasions is not a jealous god. You can invoke him to start a hooker’s convention and he she or it won’t be offended. “Protector of the buddy system—the mush god is the lord of the secular ritual. The mush god is a serviceable god whose laws are not chiseled on tablets of stone but written on sand—open to amendment, qualification and erasure. This is the god who will compromise with you, make allowances, declare all wars holy and all peaces hallowed.” This exemplifies the homogenized problem we have today. There is no boldness for God. The problem begins at home and it begins with the father. Children need to live from the rules established in the home from their father and mother. The attack is on the family unit. The Christian home should mirror what God had sent home to the family and it has to begin with the father. As stated in Proverbs 4:1 (KJV) “Hear, ye children, the instruction of a father, and attend to know understanding.” We learned from Job 28:28 (KJV) what the definition of understanding is “And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.” The lesson on June 18, 2006 reminds us that there are no perfect parents so there are no perfect children. However, God has called you to have the responsibility of teaching your children to live Godly (Deuteronomy 6:1-2). You may also see the other lessons for Father’s Day.
