As a pastor for many years I have become greatly concerned and greatly burdened over the number of children who grow up not to serve the Saviour from Christian homes. There seems to be a real lack of practical, spiritual, biblical training going on in this apostate hour. I am also greatly concerned about the number of Christian families that are blowing apart and the tragedy that results from these lives. It is the desire of this ministry to help, encourage, and to provide training and biblical help to families to not lose their children and for parents to know what it means to be godly parents, husbands, and wives. Please feel free to contact us for more information. Contributions and support are appreciated to provide for the work of the ministry.
The Case For Spiritual Maturity
When people contact us here at For The Love of the Family and Hope Biblical Counseling Center, most of the time their life is in serious distress. Chaos is ruling and reigning in their life. Maturity issues are generally caused by living for our lusts, James 4:1-10, From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members? Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not. Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts. Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God. Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, The spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy? But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble. Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.
Southern Gospel Music
Rarely do I send out articles by other people for For the Love of The Family. However, I am compelled to send out this outstanding article by Dr. David Cloud concerning Southern Gospel music. What are my reasons for doing this? Here at For The Love Of The Family we counsel many people about the problems and needs they have in their life. We receive hundreds of e-mails from people asking for help. Most of the people who contact us are already in destruction mode in their life. All of these people come from Independent-Fundamental Baptist churches. Proverbs 13:13,"Whoso despiseth (does not give proper attention to) the word shall be destroyed: but he that feareth the commandment shall be rewarded." This verse is very plain. Most of the destruction we see around us today is because of our failure to have a real relationship with God and to obey his word.
Is Your Heart Up For Grabs?
After serving with the ministry of Hephzibah House for over 25 years, I have seen many teenage girls come to us from Christian homes and good churches. They have left their goodly heritage and broken their parents hearts.
I am very burdened for the young people of this generation. Who has their hearts? Just because they are growing up in a fundamental, Bible believing home is no guarantee that they will turn out for God.
