Why Satan Hates Your Family

by Tim Challies


Family is under attack. As Christians we are accustomed to hearing about divorce and pornography and gay marriage and so many other moral issues. Have you ever considered how many of these moral issues relate directly to family? If you look, you will see that the very notion of family—family as the Bible describes it—is under sustained and heavy attack. This means that your family is under attack.

 

We know that a distinctly Christian notion of family is crucial to raising children in the discipline and instruction of the Lord. But there is more at stake than raising the next generation of Christians. Family is crucial in at least two other ways: It teaches us fundamental truths of the Christian faith and it serves as an important kind of ministry. Allow me to explain.

I would like to hear his likewise thoughts on the enemy's attack on marriage.

Satan is about rebellion, and the traditional family was created by God.  Satan hates God, and he hates everything he stands for, so naturally he is going to try to destroy God's plan for the family and replace it with something else.  We are seeing this taken to the extreme with gay marriage, but Satan has been attacking the family long before this.  He has been attacking stay at home Moms, which has led to children being raised by daycare workers.  He has been attacking the God given chain of authority in the home.  He has been creating conditions where there is more dissatisfaction in marriages, thus leading to a higher divorce rate.  He has made the husband and wife two completely independent individuals, rather than "one flesh" as God intended, so when the going gets tough, they just split up.  Divorce doesn't carry the stigma it once did, and you will often hear Christian ministers make excuses like "God doesn't want us to go through life miserable in a bad marriage where the couple is fighting all the time."  Broken homes lead to unhappy children who have to deal with step mom and dads, and all the strife and confusion that follows.  Today, Satan has re-defined marriage.  He is marching forward, with little push back from the church.  Its sad, but it has become engrained in our culture, and unless the people see the error of their ways, and decide to return to the old paths, I don't see things getting any better till Jesus returns.  It appears things will keep getting worse.

This is something that fits into the End Times.Satan wants family member to be against family member.It divides.He does want love and togetherness he wants people to divide.That gives more anger and hate for Satan to feed off of.

Remember the oft vaunted old day were also the  period when unmarried mothers and their  children were vilified and abused; when parental power and petty snobbery dictated often who one could or could not marry. Remember too that in much of the USA, although fortunately not in Hawaii, the marriage of the current US President and his conception would have been  criminal acts - it wasn't until 1967 that the Supreme court banned states from criminalising inter-racial marriage.

Satan is an entity to be considered when raising a family. That is why it is necessary that prayers are used as backups when raising a family.

Amen. This is so true.

My family background is broken. My parents were divorced. I have sisters with different Mums and Dads. I don't think it helped me because I made bad decisions when I was younger, nor has it helped me in any of my own relationships.

I do know however, that if you commit yourself to Jesus you can slowly put all this right. Nothing is impossible once you accept God in your life.

 

It is very unlikely that I will ever marry now. I missed opportunities to do so when I was younger, being driven by lust a lot of the time. I've had a series of failed relationships. But it's even worse now. My family was something of an exception back then, but single parents, broken marriages or even no marriage at all is now commonplace. I see some crazy things happening today and it is definitely evidence that Satan is tearing the family apart. There are so many people that I know that have had kids out of wedlock or even gay men I know who have kids (not adopted, but their own kids) because at some time in their life they slept with a woman.

I really am glad that I'm not a kid today. Everything is messed up for them.

Thank you for the reminder that Satan has always been at war against family.
