In Defense of Systematic Family Worship

That we should conduct regular worship in our home, in a formal and systematic setting is clear from the scriptures as the servants of God have practiced it. You can scarcely name a Biblical patriarch, but he has set up an altar for his family, and offered spiritual sacrifices upon it. Joshua resolves upon this, […]

The Father and Family Worship

 Of late,  I have taken great encouragement from the writings of the early fathers of our nation, who were the chief priests and theologians of their households.  Many of these men were champions of faith for their wives and children and because of it they fathered preachers, teachers,  statesmen, heads of state – the great […]

Do I Consecrate or Condemn My Household?

The Scriptures emphasize the household as an altar from which the fire of pure worship should always burn. The Bible declares that God “will pour out His fury upon the families that do not call upon his name.”(Jeremiah 10:24).  Abraham was particularly commended for his faithfulness, God declaring, “for I know him, that he will […]

The family was the womb of the other two. Godly worship developed in the home. Altars were set up by households before God commaned His family, Israel, to […]

Pre-Fall Perfection

Beginnings are important. The foundation of a building, the introduction to a book, both depend on their beginnings. In an age of evolutionary and process thinking in academic circles and the quick-fix mentality of the man on the street – we rarely look at beginnings. Change is everything and everywhere; all is thought to be […]

Recovering the Spiritual Family

Five hundred years ago, transformational revivals spread across Europe. Entire nations were reshaped by passionate believers who had returned to the truths of only Scripture, only grace, only faith, only Christ, and all for the glory of God. Churches were planted. Missionaries were sent out. The world has never been the same. But consider the […]
