Families are in crisis, the Word of Truth has the answers!

At Family Discipleship Ministries we have seen, after counseling parents, teens, and struggling married couples for over 15 years, that there is a direct connection to the condition of failing Christian families and a lack of understanding of biblical principles and God’s purpose for the family. See “Alarming Statistics” on the home page.

Not long ago, Pastors were seen as the authority in the understanding and guiding of Christians through difficult times in marriage and family relationships. Sadly, this has been reduced to an annual church retreat or referred to a well meaning Christian Family Therapists who desire to help but are not using the Word of God to examine why the person/family is in these situations or teaching them how they can tend to their families according to His Word.

It is not our desire to put Christian Family Therapists in a bad light nor the well intended retreats, but merely to urge pastors to examine how they are training and discipling in this area. We want to remove any obstacle that may keep God’s people from hearing these truths – so we offer them free online.

Many of the marriage and parenting books today are mixing worldly philosophy and popular new ideas and opinions with the Word of Truth. This is not only counter productive, but in most every case, very destructive (2 Timothy 4:3-5). Because “new ideas” are presented as needed for today’s families, it is then implied as “above” the older biblical perspective is not relevant.

2 Timothy 3:16-17
All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
