Our Greatest Weapon


Your family is the key to changing the culture. For the Chuck Colson Center for Christian Worldview, I’m John Stonestreet with the Point.

It’s easy to get discouraged as we see how the battle over same-sex marriage is playing out. But as pastor and theology professor David Murray pointed out in a recent blog, we still influence one of the most important areas of our culture – our own families.

As Murray says, “The happy Christian family is potentially our greatest asset.”

False worldviews, like the ones behind our culture’s sexual free-for-all, inevitably end up doing tremendous damage. It’s impossible to flourish when operating counter to the way the world works. But the opposite is also true. A right understanding of family gives us stability. And when our neighbors see that, it might just be the thing that makes them reconsider their worldview.

So let’s work to build up our families, to love and honor our spouses, to guide our children into a robust, life-transforming faith, and to model the beauty that comes from building family God’s way. For thePointRadio.org, I’m John Stonestreet.

Mo, you are often in my thoughts and prayers, and you are constantly in Christ's.
Believe it or not, some people aren't lucky enough to have spouses and children. Many of us don't even have families of origin that are followers of Christ. We have to follow Christ as best we can, completely alone. (Yes, I know we have the Church. But even if there were services 7 days a week, we still have to go home and be completely alone.)

Hard to imagine, isn't it?
