No one needs to prove to us that we may be watching the death of the germ-cell of civilization, the family. All the signs are abundantly clear all around us. We could drag out all kinds of statistics to indicate the dire situation in the families in our culture. We are all constantly looking at the parade in the media of divorce, sexual rebellion, abortion, sterilization, delinquency, infidelity, homosexuality, women's liberation, children's rights and so on.
That has been continually paraded before us for the last ten or twelve years. We are watching the formation of the rope that strangles the family to death. And many, frankly, are gladly carving out the tombstone for the family, and really doing it happily. In a book entitled, The Death of the Family, a British physician suggests "doing away with the family completely The people who hold these perspectives are aggressive, forceful, forthright, domineering and they find their most fertile ground for the propagation of their viewpoints in the universities and the colleges of our society, and consequently they are in the process of significantly reeducating the youth who eventually fall into the category of the leaders and movers and shakers of our society.
Grace Atkinson? I'd say that's fairly fatal. She says, "Marriage is legalized servitude and family relations are the basis for all human oppression. But in many cases it is the reigning view among the thinkers, the professors, the teachers in our society. On the other hand, others who are watching the death of the family see it as a disaster, a virulent disease.
If the family cannot function, who will raise, who will socialize, who will moralize the next generation? Armand Nicolai II? He points to married women with children working outside the home, the tendency for families to move frequently, almost constantly, the dominance of television in the home, the lack of controls in society, the chaos of moral confusion, the lack of communication among families and divorce, and all of those things, he says, are threatening the very life which we live.
Let me quote from him. He says, "These trends will incapacitate the family, destroy its integrity and cause its members to suffer such crippling emotional conflict that they will become an intolerable burden to society. What about the future? First, the quality of family life will continue to deteriorate producing a society with a higher incidence of mental illness than ever before. Ninety-five percent of our hospital beds may be taken up by mentally ill patients.
This illness will be characterized by a lack of self-control. We can expect the assassination of people in authority to be frequent occurrences. Crimes of violence will increase, even those within the family. The suicide rate will rise. As sexuality becomes more and more unlimited and separated from family and emotional commitment, the deadening effect will cause more bizarre experimentation and wide-spread perversion," end quote.
A frankly frightening picture and we are watching it being painted right before our very eyes. There is no question about the fact that the family is under a major assault, that people want to redefine family in absolutely any terms they want. There's no question that we are watching a generation of young people rising up who have no socialization skills and no moral sense at all.
There is chaos. There is murder. There is crime at a rampant level. There is even pleasure in shooting people incidental to you, just for the sheer thrill of killing. Sociologists, psychologists, analysts and so-called marriage and family experts, psychiatrists and all the rest are scrambling all over the place to try to come up with some kind of solution, and they've been doing that now for a couple of decades with absolutely no impact on the slide.
Nothing that they are doing seems to slow down the process of the disintegration of human relationships at the very core of life which is the family. You can tamper with society in a lot of places, but if you destroy the family you destroy society. It's a fascinating, in a sense, to be alive right in the middle of this. The family is certainly at the head of the endangered species list, much more dangerous than the elimination of some species that occupy people's attention. And at that point we interject And I suppose for the sake of some people we should ask Is it worth fighting for?
And if so, how? I would add that the church has made some efforts, certainly in the last ten years, the last twenty years there has been a great preoccupation on this subject. Christian bookstores are literally filled with books on marriage and the family. There have been endless sermons and messages and tapes and seminars and conferences go on to deal with the issues of the family. But that, too, doesn't seem to make much difference.
I can remember not too many years ago when I was reading statistics such as And that, at the same time, that we've been trying to escalate our defense of the family indicates that somewhere we've been fighting with the wrong weapons or fighting the wrong enemy. God has an answer to Family is still the heart and soul of human society and family as it is defined by God.
It is the place of intimacy. It is the place of joy. It is the place of memories that build the foundation of life. It is the place of love. It is the place of socialization. It is the place of morality. It is the place of security. It is where you build confidence. I was talking to one of our professors out at the Master's College the other day who graduated with a Ph. And he said all of the literature, all of the existing literature today done on the study of children indicates that there is a period of time between the ages of six and twelve when everything foundational is either put down or not put down and those are the determinative years in what that child will become.
You can look at the pattern of life in those years and predict almost perfectly whether they will be anti-social in their behavior or whether they will socialize in a normal way. We can see all of the roots of criminal behavior in that period of time in the life of a child. That makes a lot of sense that the secular world would pick out that time because even in the case of Jesus there is an illustration of the fact that when a Jewish child reached the age of twelve, he was ready on his own to be a son of the Law.
I talked about the fact that God has designed parents to strengthen and build up children between the ages of six and twelve so that they can cope with puberty that starts at about that time. And if they don't have the foundations of morality and they don't have the affirmation and self-discipline and self-control that is built in during those years of six to twelve, then they run amuck when their passions take over during that period of time.
There is a divine pattern for how a family is to deal with that, for how a marriage is to set a model to be followed, for how a marriage is to be fulfilled and happy and rewarded. And when we look for that model we need to go no further than the Word of God. It's all laid out there. It's not that complicated and it's not that difficult. When I was preaching this week after I left Illinois I went over to Ohio and I was preaching and after I had preached a lady came up, a sweet young lady, I suppose about 35 years old and she had a whole bunch of little kids, a couple in her arms and some hanging on to her.
And she wanted to tell me that she was struggling ten years ago to find some direction in her marriage and she wanted to thank me for some messages she heard that I preached on this particular subject that led she and her husband, led her and her husband to determine the direction based upon the Word of God which in the ten years intervening God had so blessed that she came on a long trip in very difficult weather to express her gratitude to me for the joy that she's experienced both in her marriage and in her family.
It's not me, it's the truth of the Word of God that makes the difference. And until people get in line with that truth, they will continue the devastating drift downward that's going to be far worse in the future than it is even now. One can only guess what the next generation is going to be like. Frightening thing to think about.
Now for us to get a grip on what God says about the family, we really find ourselves best served by looking in Ephesians chapter 5. Paul's letter to the Ephesians sort of gives us a place where all of the pertinent material is pulled together and it's a great launching point for us. Around 60 A. It may well be too that the original manuscript didn't say Ephesus and it could have been a circular letter gone through all the churches in the area of Asia Minor of which Ephesus was the first of those churches.
But Paul wrote this letter to the Christians in that part of the world and one of the things that was on his heart was the matter of marriage. And when you come down to chapter 5 and verse 18 you begin to get in the flow that leads you to verse 22 and following where the issues of family and marriage are addressed. We're going to talk about a lot of things in this series over the next number of weeks. And keep in mind, this is not human opinion.
I'm not here to give you my opinion. I really don't value my opinion at all. All I want to do is show you what the Word of God says and the applicable wisdom that comes from that. This is the last word on the issue. We don't need experts and psychiatrists and psychologists and analysts and marriage and family people, we can go right to the Word of God.
We're not looking for tricks and gimmicks, we're looking for truth that can become part of our lives. Now in this wonderful epistle that we are familiar with, the epistle of Ephesians, as Paul begins to launch into this subject he starts, at least for us, in verse 18 with a very key premise. And let's begin there. He says, "And do not get drunk with wine for that is dissipation, but be filled with the Spirit.
From that great principle flows the instruction to the wife in verse 22, the instruction to the husband in verse 25, the instruction to the children in 6: All of that marriage and family teaching flows out of this principle in chapter 5 and verse In fact, it is the first of several necessary prerequisites for any successful marriage or any successful relationship. And the contrast in that verse, as you see it there, "Do not get drunk with wine, for that is dissipation, but be filled with the Spirit," it's quite dramatic and remarkable contrast.
If you just pick up the book of Ephesians and read that, you might stop and say, "Well why in the world would he contrast drunkenness with being filled with the Spirit? What is the point here?
