Fathers legitimatize children

I find it interesting that children without fathers, in the past at least, were called bastards.

Perhaps it is no surprise that fatherlessness has such a negative impact on children such as dropping out of school, behavioral problems, drug and alcohol abuse, runaways, and so on.

We are legitimatized when we accept Jesus, as we are adopted into God’s family.

Romans 8:14 For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. 15 The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.” 16 The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. 17 Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.

Non-Christians are effectively spiritual bastards, which is why they spend their lives chasing after every other thing to attempt to satisfy that identity and purpose that they don’t have.

Part of the disconnect happens, even in saved Christians, because they don’t fully understand that they are legitimatized in Christ. So they hang onto worldly desires and pleasures.

    It seems in the spiritual realm either God is your Father or it’s the devil.

    Leaving the post alone, and putting all attention on the title alone, it shows how far down the path of gynocentrism we have come.In my youth, no one would have questioned the title. Now, feminists will use every dirty trick they can come up with to deny it, in the full knowledge of its truth.
    I have to wonder when all the defenses that support single mothers will collapse and they are seen for what they are.

    Yes, single mothers who choose to have sex and/or children out of wedlock are now “heroes” instead of “terrible parents.”

    It’s interesting how they have tried to change the language to support their false idols.

    I think feminists have gone down this road to confer superiority on women. They are so superior, they can do no wrong. If they do, a way must be found to blame men, no matter how convoluted.
