No One Can Replace a Father
Yesterday, I shared a tweet by a man who goes by the name “King David – the Coach of Kings.” It read: “Unpopular opinion. Single mothers who ‘don’t need men’ are actively denying their sons the ability to become a man. Women cannot solely raise boys into men. They need a father, a father figure, or a masculine influence to enter manhood. Nothing else can replace it.”
This triggered many single mothers. I don’t see why, however. You would think that they would understand the need that boys have for a father. The statistics are very grim for those who are fatherless. It seems that rather than be offended by this, they would convicted to do all they could to have strong, good male role models in their lives.
63% of youth suicides are from fatherless homes (US Dept. Of Health/Census) – 5 times the average.
90% of all homeless and runaway children are from fatherless homes – 32 times the average.
85% of all children who show behavior disorders come from fatherless homes – 20 times the average. (Center for Disease Control)
80% of rapists with anger problems come from fatherless homes –14 times the average. (Justice & Behavior, Vol 14, p. 403-26)
71% of all high school dropouts come from fatherless homes – 9 times the average. (National Principals Association Report)
Women do need men. They need them to get pregnant and have a baby. The lie that feminism has caused them to believe that they don’t need men is a lie. BUT, they need good men. In order for them to find and marry a good man, they must become good too. How do they do this? By believing in Jesus Christ. Then His Spirit begins to work mightily within them. They need to work on becoming godly women before hoping to marry a godly man.
The breakdown of the family has been devastating upon this country. Feminism has been destructive upon this country. Marriages no longer last until death do they part. Millions of unborn babies have been slaughtered in their own mothers’ wombs. Children are left in daycares and godless public schools to be raised instead of at home with their mothers.
We, as believers in Jesus Christ, must obey God. Get married. Bear children. Raise them for the Lord. Be a keeper at home. His ways are so good and produce such good fruit. Our children and grandchildren are our greatest treasures in life!
Children’s children are the crown of old men; and the glory of children are their fathers.
