Mark Caserta: America’s families are under attack

Any mason knows if the cornerstone is not laid properly, the structure can eventually falter and collapse. With the deepest of convictions, I believe there is a liberal assault on the family unit, or God’s cornerstone to our society, with the intention of re-branding it as non-essential for the progressive era.

In 2014, I wrote a column entitled, “America should refocus on the family.” In the column, I dealt with the importance God placed on the family structure. The very concept of God’s creation of man gives us reason to believe He understands the need for relationships and the importance of family.

In Genesis 2:18, God instituted the family when He said, “It is not good that man should be alone: I will make him an help meet for him.” He then formed Eve from Adam’s rib, declaring, “This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.”

My Christian walk has taught me the attacks from the enemy (whom Christians believe to be Satan) are more heavily directed toward threats to the devil’s plan to steal, kill and destroy in the Kingdom of God. I believe this is the reason the family unit is under attack by liberals who would openly redefine its nature, by whittling away at its foundation.

And despite how often portrayed, the husband is an integral part of the family.

Ephesians reminds husbands to “love your wives, just as Christ loved the church.” The profoundness of this statement is illuminated in that Christ willingly gave his life for the church. In this capacity, the husband is called to be the “priest” of his household, spending time in prayer and attending to his family’s spiritual needs.

Unfortunately, today’s television programs often cast the head of the household as a bumbling fool and lackadaisical in his role as the priest of the home. Don’t think for a moment this is unintentional. It’s a progressive attempt to alter the significance of traditional family structure.

Simply look at the targeted audience of many of today’s television sitcoms or cartoons – our impressionable youth! I believe it’s a deliberate form of indoctrination to a progressive lifestyle.

Look at the channel “Freeform.” The Freeform channel was originally The Christian Broadcasting Network “Family Channel.” The network was eventually sold to Disney in 2001 and renamed ABC “Family,” which propagated the moniker “A new kind of family.” It eventually morphed into Freeform, which incessantly portrays “Becomers,” or viewers between the ages of 14 and 34, as sexually active and engaging in promiscuous lifestyles.

Folks, this is a methodical approach to fundamentally reconstruct the family unit in the likeness of liberalism.

So, what to do? As Christians, we must seek first the Kingdom of God. We must also learn to recognize these liberal attacks in their infancy, before they establish their own sort of “cornerstone” from which they can build on the progressive movement.

Expect to be criticized, even hated, for your faith. But let not your heart be troubled – Jesus understands.

He was crucified for it.

The Bible tells us when we’ve done all we know to do – stand.  Remember, every step conservatives take backward, is a step forward for liberals.
