The Spiritual Civil War
The family is the foundation for all
social order in God's creation. At the heart of the family is a 3-way
relationship between God, a man, and a woman. As that relationship goes,
so goes the family, and therefore society. We focus on the spiritual civil
war that engulfs our families and nation by examining modern America in
light of our Christian heritage, the problems we face as an ungodly nation
today, and the link between home life and the spiritual condition of
America. How do we win the spiritual civil war? What are the keys to
victory for our families and ultimately our nation? God is counting on His
Leadership: Authority to Fulfill Responsibility
Rebuilding a godly heritage in our
families and nation requires men to fulfill their biblical calling to leadership. That is the first step. But what is leadership? What
does the Bible say about men and leadership? We examine authority in
detail and the accompanying responsibilities of husbands and fathers. The qualities of
biblical leadership are brought to life through the lives and actions of
famous Union and Confederate generals. What practical lessons can we apply
Service: Denying Self for Others
Service is the practical application of
leadership. Service is what leadership does. What does it mean to serve?
What is the biblical connection between leadership and service? Experience
the cold realities of biblical service through the eyes of the common
infantry soldier in the Civil War. How do these examples guide us in
serving our families?
Sacrifice: Be Willing to Die
Service only takes us so far and then we
must be willing to sacrifice; we must be willing to die. What is the cost
of following Christ and leading our families? See biblical sacrifice
illustrated in the lives of those who fought for our freedoms in the Civil
War. Learn how men can be "sacrificial servants" for their families and
strengthen the heritage of their Christian faith for future generations.
Are All Dead Now!
Some died in battle or from disease, some suffered horrible battle wounds
or in captivity, and others lived to great glory and a ripe old age – but
the Civil War generation is dead and gone now. While the Civil War ended
years ago, the spiritual civil war for our families and faith never ends.
But will we fight? Will we answer the call? What will future generations
say about us and the times in which we live? What will they say about the
heritage we have left for them?
