There was a time when American family moral values were different than they are today.
Maybe we should consider returning to those values since they worked so well before we decided to "fix" our country.

God's Concept Of The Family Unit

God's concept of the family unit has been consistent from the beginning. The family unit consists of one man as the head of the family along with one woman as his helpmate and perpetuator of the human species. The number of siblings in the family unit depended on the culture, the period of history, and a few other factors such as religion and other beliefs that were passed down to family members through out the years.

Our Creator never made 2 beings that were identical in every aspect, therefore, we are all individual creations. This individuality covers more than the physical bodies. The only thing that is uniform in all humans is the Spirit imparted to us by the Creator and It is in a binary condition. This binary state is either "on" which indicates that we aligned with the Creator or the binary state is "off" which indicates that we are in "darkness" or separated from the Creator. Unfortunately, the secular world that we live in is in a constant binary state of "off".

Since the 1960s the American family has deteriorated from a moral based family unit to what appears to be an "every man for himself", selfish, "me only" type of situation. When those of us who became of legal age (18 - 21) during the early 1960s felt that we had been deceived and short-changed by our system of government, we decided to change things. The problem was two fold. First, we had not figured out what to change or how to accomplish the task. Second, we did not realize that the "system" was not flawed; it was those who were in the positions of administration that were defective.

Looking back in retrospect there were 2 schools of thought during the 1960s. There were the anarchist or "rabble rousers" whose main goal was to create chaos, discord and destroy property. They were identified, apprehended and incarcerated or eliminate for good to restore order.

Then there were those who honestly wanted to make a change for positive results but did not have a clue as to how to accomplish that task. History has shown that these people were finally absorbed by the system and became the lawyers, doctors, politicians and administrators who make policy today. The main problem with this is that we have not learned much from history and continue to make some of the same mistakes over and over.

After all is said and done, the United States of America is still God's example of what we can be as a nation with some effort and if we stay focused on what is really important. Let us return to the moral base that this country was conceived upon and stay the course. Here are a few articles that we might want to ponder concerning this subject.

But why are marital breakdowns so much more common in the United States than other places in the world?

One reason Mark is that our society has developed a "throw away" attitude of selfishness. If things do not go our way then most think that it is easier to "eliminate" the irritation and start anew.

The marriage relationship with very few exceptions is intended by God to be for life. That is also stipulated as a base condition in most marriage vows.

Thought provoking post Rubinstyn and this applies everywhere. I find in Asia many take things for granted including democracy and freedom. They feel they can swing their arms around in gay abandon without looking out for passersby. If only we cared more for the less fortunate and became an inclusive society. Now it is becoming more a selfish lifestyle by the day - siva

It does seem that this world is "infected" by the sense of selfishness in every culture. There are also more people who make a deliberate choice to "do what is right", thank God. This is the only stance we can take as individuals to make a difference. It all starts with us.

First the thing to do is identify who is really moral and who isn't. The government wanted to take God out of the system or deny His existence. In doing that they opened the door to impartial justice. Having identified the ones who are switched "off" they have now been identified by this system as impartial justice. Now will begin the correct "on" people who do want God in our lives. We will leave the ones who don't want "our" values in a different identity and we will now know the sheep from the goats. We cannot make them do as we do because they are switched "off". Now comes the dividing of the sheep and the goats. We let them go on into sin. Because that was what they wanted. A person who is filled with light will understand that the time has come for this equation to end. When the government put God out of their equation they turned their switches to "off" so they are not numbered in the light. Can't be any other way. Those that make it to the light of God will leave that system. The time is at hand.

Hi Grumpybear,
Thanks for your comment. Remember that the government is made up of individuals who can be voted in or out of office by us. Also, we are only commanded to spread the Word of God to the masses. The Lord will do the separating and judging in His own time.

God bless you and your post.
