The Christian Family

This course applies Christian redemption to family relationships,

“turning the hearts of parents to their children and the hearts of children to their parents,”
teaching Christian husbands to love their wives “as Christ loved the church and gave himself for her,”
and teaching wives to willingly and lovingly submit to their husbands “as the church submits to Christ.”
We look at

God’s ideal for the family,
dealing with tensions,
reconciling broken relationships,
the problems of divorce and rebellion,
helping our children resist evil and keeping them for the Lord,
how to invite God into your home,
how to teach your children God’s word and lead them in worship,
how to keep love alive in marriage,
sex in marriage as God intended it,
keeping communications open,
activities that unite the family,
choosing the right person to marry,
and more.
Good for all those who plan to be married or to counsel others, as well as all family members.
