“When the family is strong, government can be small. When the family is weak, however, the government must compensate for the loss. By focusing on the family, we respect and better the community.” – Dr. Albert Mohler (“Toward a Christian View of Economics”, Tabletalk Magazine, February 2017)
Strong families are the answer to big government. Could it be that simple? Yes. Strong families build strong communities. Just think of how many government programs that would not be needed if families were strong. Family units are the building blocks of a society. When families break down, the society breaks down. Add moral relativism to a society of weak families, and you have a recipe for disaster. We desperately need a return to the Biblical worldview of family, community and government. God has ordained them all, and we can find instruction in His Word.
