thru the fire
In this episode of Thru the Fire, Dr. Marie Seltz and Dr. Greg Seltz examine why it seems families and family values, traditional and otherwise, are under attack in our culture. The Family has been devalued. They discuss the history of the degradation of families in America, some of the reasons for it, and what they witnessed serving in urban missions in some of the country’s roughest neighborhoods. But, more significantly, they consider how we can reverse this destructive cultural and societal trend and how to bring back families as God intended them to exist.
Why have families come under attack in our culture, causing dysfunction and separation?
What has led to the loss of traditional families?
Love points away from the individual (selflessness), sin points towards the individual (selfishness)
The Seltzes explain what they saw happening in society while serving in urban missions around the country: How Societal and cultural freedom separated families and led to a disrespect of the family
Technology is another significant factor that has altered to the family experience in the home:
Technology and the easy access to it has further divided families. We don’t sit in the same rooms together, watching one TV show or gathering around the table for meals.
