Our country has been divided over the issue of separating families at the border.
Families are not to be separated.
We only have to be separated from our families for a long period of time to know the adverse impact.
The message of the Judeo-Christian Scriptures is squarely against separating families.
Throughout Scripture and redemptive history, in particular, our covenant God has always called families, not individuals, into covenant.
There is no covenant without families. This is loudly demonstrated throughout both the Old and New Testaments (Genesis 12, 17 and Acts 16:15, 31; 1 Cor 1:16) .
One does not have to embrace covenant theology to know this. The devil knows that a sure and effective way to destroy society and the church is to attack undermine the traditional family structure.
The family has become the prime target of the devil’s schemes.
Here is the bottom line, per the Creator’s design: a person truly needs a healthy family structure to grow into psychological, emotional and spiritual wholeness.
We all know this.
No one wishes to be torn apart from their families.
Therefore, I called on those of us who cherish the biblical family structure, to pray for and encourage the preservation of families, despite our political convictions.
