Over fifty percent of marriages are on the rocks, leaving a trail of sorrow, bitterness and wounded relationships. The Word of God has much to say about making marriage work, and Pastor Lutzer shares some clear guidelines that might make a crucial difference in your marriage.

If the family is the bedrock of society, it stands to reason that stable marriages are the bedrock of the family. That is why divorce is so damaging. In divorce, there are no winners.

The parable of the prodigal son has inspired many books. We can be sure that the father who waited for his son was a praying parent. Nothing else would have brought this son home.

Only God can count the tears of parents whose kids have gone to the far country. Like the prodigal son in the Bible, their kids chose a path destined for failure. But there is great power in persistent prayer, and our God is a God who answers prayer.

How badly do you want God to answer your prayers for a child in trouble? In Matthew chapter fifteen, Jesus is amazed by the faith of a Canaanite woman with a demon-possessed daughter, and He heals the child. Is our faith as great?

Despite our best efforts, sometimes kids go astray, even Christian kids. Anguished parents cry out to God for a solution – and that is exactly what God wants us to do.

Victims of abuse often see the with rage at their abusers. Their sense of violation cries out for revenge. But these victims abuse themselves further if they fail to forgive those who have wronged them.

The devil wants to destroy the family, especially the father. When abuse takes place, abuse of any kind, a father faces severe judgment from God. Step one in coming clean is to acknowledge that the abuse is real.  
February 10, 2014
Abuse takes many forms, all of which are destructive in a family. This abuse is nothing new.  King Saul of Israel is a textbook case of an abuser, a man consumed with jealousy.  
February 7, 2014
The dark secret in all too many families is abuse. It takes several forms: verbal, physical, and sexual. The hurt caused by abuse is incalculable, both to the abused as well as the abuser.
