Scathing 4-minute video on ‘One flesh with wife, not children,’ by Paul Washer
Washer warns that what he says in this short video will “offend” many, and will make some “really mad.” He also tells how a parent’s relationship with their child (or grandchild) becomes “parasitic.”
I would also add another point to consider. From what I see on Facebook, it appears that many seemingly love their children (or grandchildren) more than their spouse. Even worse, it seems some may have made idols out of their children, or grandchildren.
As Jesus said in Matthew 15:18, “But those things which proceed out of the mouth come from the heart, and they defile a man.” Our words can reveal our hearts sinfulness, and even idols in our lives. I believe that is the same with our keyboards / posts. Do we give more attention and credit to the creation and gifts, rather than the Creator of the creation, and the Giver of the gifts?
Facts is, if there is anything in our life that we have more time for, passion for, or knowledge of than God (and His Word); then it is in fact an idol. Jesus said that the ‘idolaters’ will be cast into the lake of fire.
WARNING: If you’d rather go to church to hear funny jokes, fictional stories, or contemporary sermons; then do not watch this video. If you desire to grow in Christ, in addition to diligently studying the Word of God; then one of the preachers I recommend listening to is Paul Washer of HeartCry Missionary Society.
