BBCurtici – 20.06.2015 – Conferinta Emil Bartos part. II

Emil BartosDiferenta de generatie, de gandire, de mentalitate, se accentueaza. Intotdeauna a fost aceasta diferenta de abordare a vietii intre parinti si copii. Dar, in ultimii ani, aceasta diferenta, aceasta prapastie de comunicare a crescut destul de mult. Parca, copiii si parintii sunt to mai distantatiS-a vazut si motivele, presiunile din afara, noile abordari, noua gandire seculara care accentueaza mult individualismul, renuntarea la valori, relativismul etic si moral. Toate acestea influenteaza noua generatie. Plus, ca in familie, apar probleme cari n-au fost pana acum. Ideea de familie este sub asediu. Se vrea renuntarea la modelul iudeo-crestin de familie. Se incearca alte variante, cum ar fi parteneriatele, adica, concubinajul, mai pe intelesul tuturor. Si social, parintii lucreaza tot mai mult. Tot mai tarziu vin acasa. Copiii sunt sacrificati, dati pe mana altora. Si aceasta prapastie, aceasta distanta e tot mai mare, cu cat trec anii. Problemele care apar sunt pe masura. Am vorbit despre lipsa regulilor, a moralitatii, a eticii. Frica de angajament, violenta, suicidul, despresia, samd.

Ce solutii exista? Evident, solutii, asa, cu care sa se rezolve problema aceasta nu exista. Trebuie o analiza, asa cum facem noi si cum ar trebui sa faca toti parintii. […] Parintii nu-s pregatiti. Bisericile insa care se consuma pentru asta, care organizeaza, familiile care cer o analiza atenta,  acestea vor reusi cel putin sa previna problemele.

Ce este de facut? Asa cum am aratat, daca este o schimbare la nivelul global, asa ar trebui sa fie o schimbare de vorbire la nivelul familiei. Noi, sigur, credem in valorile crestine si in principiile crestine. Biblia nu da solutii la orice. Deci, fac si eu alergie la exegetii si interpretii nostri diletanti, care iau texte biblice si le forteaza, numai ca sa le dea lor un raspuns. Biblia vorbeste putin despre relatia parinti-copii. Dumnezeu ne-a dat si ratiune, ne-a dat si cunostinta. Ne-a dat acces la informatie si toate acestea trebuie combinate. Principiile biblice le pastram. Dar, pe ele, construim ceva, zidim ceva. Si de aceea facem studii.

Trei lucruri ar trebui recuperate

Am gasit ca trei lucruri ar trebui recuperate, reaplicate din principiile crestine, ca sa ne ajute a imbunatatii intelegerea copilului tau. Primul este descoperirea partasiei. (Din primele 6:10 minute)

Do not forsake your mother’s teaching

Proverbs 1:7-9

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction. Hear, my son, your father’s instruction, and do not forsake your mother’s teaching; indeed, they are a graceful wreath to your head, and ornaments about your neck.

The book of Proverbs begins, „The proverbs of Solomon, son of David, king of Israel.” He was a great king and the son of a great king. That means he was famous and powerful and supreme in all the realm. People bowed in his presence. They did what he said. He had immense authority and honor.

Even Great Kings Should Bow to Their Mothers

How did he treat his mother in this exalted role? You recall his mother was Bathsheba. She had married his father David under very ugly circumstances—very displeasing to God. But she was his mother, and this is what it says in 1 Kings 2:19,

Bathsheba went to King Solomon to speak to him for Adonijah. And the king arose to meet her, bowed before her, and sat on his throne; then he had a throne set for the king’s mother, and she sat on his right.

Then they had their conversation. He rose for her. He bowed to her. And he called for a throne to be put beside his for their conversation. She was his mother. Even kings should stoop when their mothers enter the room.

Solomon was not a perfect king. He was not a perfect man. None of the writers of the Bible was. But God guided his insights and preserved for us true ones here in the book of Proverbs. And I want us to listen to God’s word through Solomon today.

Six Lessons: The Ultimate Issue Is God

There are at least six things he tells us in Proverbs 1:7–9. They all relate to God. They are not merely the kind of wisdom you might pick up in reading „mindworks” or Parents magazine or Ann Landers. They overlap with the wisdom of the world. But the absence of God in the world’s family-advice is ultimately a fatal flaw. Solomon means for us to hear his counsel as all related to God.

We often think of the book of Proverbs as a book of what you can learn from ordinary earthly life. And much of it is. But the point of the book is to bring all that into relation to God so that he becomes the center of it all.

Just one example. In Proverbs 30:8 it says,

Give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with the food that is my portion, 9 Lest I be full and deny Thee and say, „Who is the Lord?” Or lest I be in want and steal, and profane the name of my God.

Do you see what this says about God? The wise man prays, „Guard me from riches and guard me from poverty.” Why? Because if I’m rich I might say, „Who needs God!” And if I’m poor I might steal. And why is that so bad? Because you might get caught and go to jail? Or because you might lose your reputation? No. He says, Because if I steal, I will profane the name of my God.

Riches are dangerous because the ultimate issue is God. And poverty is dangerous because the ultimate issue is God. The book of Proverbs—the most practical, down-to-earth book in the Bible—is written for God’s sake. That we might not deny God in our prosperity and that we might not profane God in the hour of need.

All six lessons in Proverbs 1:7–9 relate to God, and they are all intensely practical.

1. The Origin of Family

The family is God’s idea.

Solomon takes for granted that there are mothers and fathers and children related in relationship of unique accountability. Verse 8: „Hear, my son, your father’s instruction, and do not forsake your mother’s teaching.” This is just a given with Solomon. It used to be with us too. But perhaps it can’t be taken for granted any more. Families are God’s idea. God’s plan. God’s way. They are not arbitrary evolutionary developments based on instincts. The family is ordained by God in creation.

In the very first chapter of the Bible, Genesis 1:27, it says,

And God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. 28 And God blessed them; and God said to them, „Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth . . . „

How are they to do this fruitful earth-filling? By indiscriminate mating and pregnancies? The second chapter of the Bible (Genesis 2:24) gives the answer: A man shall leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave to his wife; and they shall become one flesh.

A profound covenant relationship between one man and one woman—a cleaving to each other alone, in a one-flesh union—is God’s idea of the heart of the family. When this is broken by a tragic death or a tragic divorce, there may have to be single parent families. And God has been faithful to millions of mothers and fathers who have had to raise children alone. But God’s original purpose for the heart of the family was one man and one woman cleaving to each other as husband and wife and becoming one flesh in fruitful sexual union. In that way he meant to fill the earth with humans who image-forth his glory, and with couples whose covenant-relationship shows the world the way that God relates to his covenant people in love and faithfulness.

The family is God’s idea and it is for God’s glory. Solomon assumes that here in Proverbs 1:7–9.

2. The Family as a School

The family is God’s basic school for instructing children how to live in the world.

Verse 8 again: „Hear, my son, your father’s instruction, and do not forsake your mother’s teaching.” The father is an instructor and the mother is a teacher. Therefore the family is a school.

God ordained the family not just to be fruitful and fill the earth with people, but to fill the earth with instructed people and taught people. The family is the place where the next generation is born and where the next generation learns how to live.

Life does not come naturally for human beings. The sucking reflex comes naturally. The falling reflex comes naturally. The iris of the eye closes naturally in bright light. We don’t have to learn to cry when hungry. But that’s about it. And those skills will not get us very far in this world. Humans have to learn just about everything from the most basic skills of walking and talking and eating, to the moral actions of courtesy and gratitude and respect and faith in Christ.

The family is God’s school for this huge undertaking—teaching the next generation how to live in this world and be ready for the next.

And if a mother and a father seek help from others through relatives or nannies or day-care or Sunday schools or day schools or primary schools or secondary schools, the responsibility is still the parents’ and we parents will give an account to God for how the minds and hearts of our children were shaped and molded by the educators and care-givers we entrusted them to.

That’s point number two: the family is God’s basic school for instructing children how to live in the world.

3. The Fear of the Lord as the Unifying Theme

The foundation of family instruction is the fear of the Lord.

Verse 7: „The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge.” In other words if we ask, what’s the basis and beginning and integrating theme of the father’s instruction and the mother’s teaching—what is it that runs through all their daily modeling and counseling and explaining and correcting and disciplining that give unity and meaning to it all—the answer is „the fear of the Lord.”

The family isn’t just a place where children learn to hold spoons and walk on two feet and say” please” and tie shoes and read and look both ways and cut grass and put on makeup and drive a car. The family is where all of this and more begins in God, is guided by God’s Word, and is shown to be for the glory of God. The fear of God—the reverencing of God, the standing in awe of God, the trusting of God—is what family’s are for.

The family is God’s idea. The family is a school. And the unifying theme in the curriculum of this school is God.

4. The Responsibility of Both Fathers and Mothers

Under God both fathers and mothers share in the responsibility of this family instruction.

Verse 8 again: „Hear, my son, your father’s instruction, and do not forsake your mother’s teaching.”

It does not say, „Fathers instruct, and mothers change diapers.” It does not say, „Fathers work at the office and so have no responsibility to teach their children.” Nor does it say, „Mothers work at the office and can turn the responsibility of teaching over to a care-giver.” It says fathers instruct, and mothers teach. They share this responsibility.

If it were Father’s Day I would probably trumpet a challenge to you fathers to take fresh initiatives at home. But it is Mother’s Day, and I want to encourage mothers that this responsibility to teach your children is an immeasurably significant privilege.

God has a way of nullifying the greatness of the great and exalting the lowliness of the lowly. In our culture motherhood is, I think, on the upswing. But only after decades of unusual lowliness and bad-press. The last five our six years have abounded with letters and articles like this one to Ann Landers:

I’m so tired of all those ignorant people who come up to my husband and ask him if his wife has a full-time job or if she’s „just a house-wife.” . . . Here’s my job description.

I’m a wife, mother, friend, confidant, personal advisor, lover, referee, peacemaker, housekeeper, laundress, chauffeur, interior decorator, gardener, painter, wall paperer, dog groomer, veterinarian, manicurist, barber, seamstress, appointment manager, financial planner, bookkeeper, money manager, personal secretary, teacher, disciplinarian, entertainer, psychoanalyst, nurse, diagnostician, public relations expert, dietitian and nutritionist, baker, chef, fashion coordinator and letter writer for both sides of the family.

I am also a travel agent, speech therapist, plumber and automobile maintenance and repair expert . . .

From the studies done, it would cost more than $75,000 a year to replace me. I took time out of my busy day to write this letter, Ann, because there are still ignorant people who believe a housewife is nothing more than a baby sitter who sits on her behind all day and looks at soap operas. (Ann Landers, May 1988, quoted in Mom, You’re Incredible, by Linda Weber, Focus on the Family, 1994, pp. 23–24)

That’s true. And it is good to have it said. But vastly more can be said. Let me give one great illustration from the New Testament: the effect of Timothy’s mother and grandmother.

Paul says in 2 Timothy 1:5,

I am mindful of the sincere faith within you, which first dwelt in your grandmother Lois, and your mother Eunice, and I am sure that it is in you as well.

Then in 3:14–15 Paul says,

You, however, continue in the things you have learned and become convinced of, knowing from whom you have learned them [that is, your mother Eunice and through her from your grandmother Lois]; and that from childhood you have known the holy scriptures [because your mother taught them to you] which are able to give you the wisdom that leads to salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

Now that’s a remarkable testimony. Timothy’s father was a Greek (Acts 16:3). He probably didn’t know the Scriptures. So Paul celebrates the great heritage that Timothy has through his mother and his grandmother. They did what his father could not or would not do. They filled him with the Scriptures, and the Scriptures brought him eventually to faith in Christ, and faith in Christ brought him salvation.

Timothy will live forever and ever because his mother and his grandmother were faithful to Proverbs 1:8.

5. The Submissiveness of Children

God calls sons and daughters to be submissive to their mothers and fathers.

Verse 8 again: „Hear, my son, your father’s instruction, and do not forsake your mother’s teaching.”

These two commands warn against the two common temptations of rebellion. One is when a child is home; and the other is when he is away from home. If he is home, the temptation of rebellion is not to listen when his parent speaks. So Solomon says, „Hear your father’s instruction.” If he is away from home, the temptation is to forsake what he was taught. So Solomon says, „Do not forsake your mother’s teaching.”

Young people, when you are at home, listen to your parents. Do not write off what they say. Do it for God’s sake. This is so important in God’s eyes that he made it part of the Ten Commandments that sum up the whole law. Exodus 20:12, „Honor your father and mother.” Honor your father by listening respectfully when he speaks. And honor your mother by remembering what she taught you about right and wrong—about the fear of God—when you are away from home and no one can see but you and God.

6. The Promise of Reward

Finally, God ordains a reward for sons and daughters who do not forsake the teaching of their mother and father.

Verse 9: „Indeed [literally, „because”], they [hearing your father’s instruction and not forsaking your mother’s teaching] are a graceful wreath to your head, and ornaments about your neck.”

What this verse makes plain is that the instruction of fathers and the teaching of mothers, rooted in the fear of the Lord, is good news. Kids don’t always feel that. Sometimes parents have never grown up into grace enough to feel it either. But that’s what the verse says: hearing a father’s instruction and not forsaking a mother’s teaching will be a wreath of grace and glory and joy; it will be like gifts and prizes around your neck. In other words it will mean triumph and celebration and joy.

The apostle Paul said in Ephesians 6:2 that „honor your father and mother” is „the first commandment with promise.” All the commandments are full of promise, but God goes out of his way to make this explicit for sons and daughters. There is great promise in honoring your mother and father and embracing the fear of the Lord which they taught.

  • „In the fear of the Lord there is strong confidence . . . The fear of the Lord is a fountain of life” (Proverbs 14:26–27).
  • „The fear of the Lord leads to life, so that one may sleep satisfied, untouched by evil” (Proverbs 19:23).

This is the wreath on your head and the ornament on your neck for embracing the fear of the Lord that your mother and father taught you—a fountain of life and strong confidence and deep satisfaction.

A Mother’s Crown of Joy

But since today is Mother’s Day, perhaps the way we should end is by reminding ourselves as sons and daughters—whether old or young—that the fountain of life, and the strong confidence and the deep satisfaction that come from honoring all the truth that our mothers taught us also comes back to them as a crown of joy and honor and blessing in their later years. „Do not despise your mother when she is old” (Proverbs 23:22). „Let your father and your mother be glad, and let her rejoice who gave birth to you” (Proverbs 23:25). Do not forsake the teaching of your mother. It will be a wreath of grace to your head and a crown of joy upon hers.

This is a very important article on pornography, in relation to children. Please click through and read this entire article, through the link provided at the bottom of the page, and then pass it along to anyone else who is raising children.

…from the article, by Rick Thomas, for Churchleader.com

The seeds of lust can be planted in the mind of a child years before acting on them.

no parent wants their child to become involved in pornography.

-pornography for a man is not primarily about the physicality of a woman.

A woman’s appearance is an external magnet for the eye to enjoy, but the greater problem for the man is the cravings of the heart.

Pornography is first and foremost about thetheater of the mind, where the man can enter into his virtual world and be king for a day, or, in this case, king for a few minutes as he satisfies his mind with the risk-free intrigue of the cyber conquest.

Porn is a secret world that resides in the heart. It is lust, which feeds itself while in the darkness of a person’s mind. This makes what we do as parents all the more important because the mind of a child is not altogether discernible. But each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire. Then desire when it has conceived gives birth to sin, and sin when it is fully grown brings forth death. —James 1:14-15 (ESV)

The seeds of lust can be planted in the mind of a child years before he or she is old enough to act out on what has been growing inside the heart.

The continuum of being lured and enticed by sin to desiring and conceiving sin does not have to happen in a rapid sequence. It can take years for this sinful sequence to bring sin and death to a person’s life. In most cases, the allurement and enticement of the porn addict begins in his mind while still a child. This has been a consistent pattern I have seen in counseling.

Porn Training—Only certain kinds of women are porn-worthy.

A major characteristic of the porn-trained mind is how some people are worthy to be lusted after and others are not worthy. We all know who is worth our lust-filled attention.

Women certainly know what can draw the attention of a man. This is why so many of them obsess over how they look, how much they weigh, what they wear and the horror of growing old.

Though they would not connect this as being porn-worthy, many of them want to beworthy of their husband’s attention—they want to be desired. While this is not necessarily wrong, it can be deadly, especially in a marriage where the wife is not desired.

A husband who does not romantically pursue his wife can send a message to his children that she is not worthy of being pursued. She does not fit his criteria. She is not attractive to him. Couple this with filling the child’s mind with sensual TV commercials and movies, and it begins to establish a kind of beauty that is worthy of a person’s gaze—a beauty the Bible does not exalt.

Porn Training—Cyber-women are downloadable and extinguishable.

The spoiled child who is given everything he wants is a perfect candidate for porn training. An integral characteristic of the pornographer is the immediate accessibility and extinguishability of the cyber-girl.

Porn Training—Married couples communicate less and less, a requirement for porn enjoyment.

One of the common complaints I hear from couples in marriage counseling is the couple’s lack of communication. They hardly talk to each other. If they do talk, it’s usually about family events, mutual transactions and marital business.

Noncommunication is a prerequisite for the porn trainee because viewing porn is not a verbal endeavor. Pornography is enjoyment for the twisted heart that does not require verbal interaction.

The children of noncommunicative parents are trained in the devaluing of words, which is also a devaluing of the opposite sex. A man who does not talk to his wife is sending a loud message—she is not worthy of my words.

Nothing devalues a woman more than pornography. The female is objectified only for the purpose of being used in a slavish way to satisfy the putrid mind of a man. Talking is not part of this scenario.

Husbands, your children need to see the value you give your wife by giving her your best words throughout your day. These are words that build up, cherish, nourish and adore your wife. Show the value you place on the woman you married. Let her be exalted in the minds of your children.

Porn Training—Teaches a false confidence through a risk-free relationship.

A child who does not have to pay for what he has done wrong will learn how to get away with anything. This is the kind of behavior that gives a porn addict a false confidence in a risk-free virtual environment. Children need a comprehensive view of love, which means they must be appropriately disciplined when they do wrong (Hebrews 12:6). The spoiled child who suffers little consequences in life will have a low regard for rules and authority.

Porn has no rules, and it’s a low-risk habit. It doesn’t take much to do porn. It’s not like robbing a bank. A child who knows he can get away with things is easy prey for porn’s allurements. Biblical discipline is a matter of respect and honor for God and His Word. There is right and wrong in God’s world.

The porn addict does not have this kind of respect. The lines are blurred, a reality for him that did not begin when he first viewed pornography. Many porn addicts have a low view of the law of God. They simply do not care, because they have not been made to care. One of the ways you can discern this in your child is by how he respects his siblings or his mother. Typically, a child will disregard his mother more than he will his dad. When children do this, they are stretching the boundaries of honor, respect, kindness and biblical love.

Porn Training—Criticism and anger are the most common ways we devalue others.

Is your home a critical community? Is it a place of encouragement, praise, affirmation and love, or frustration, impatience, criticalness and self-centeredness?

The porn world is a refuge where people go to escape the sadness of their lives. It’s a place where the addict can obtain personal satisfaction for his dissatisfied life. There is no place on earth that has affected him more that what has transpired in his home. Even the church cannot accomplish what the home can, whether good or bad. If the home is not a refuge of encouragement, your child will be tempted to find his refuge. Porn is always beckoning for the sad soul.

Porn will never criticize, condemn, admonish, discourage or disappoint. Porn builds up the hurting soul. All the addict needs to do is tweak his conscience to make it alright in his mind. Once his conscience is appropriately hardened, he is home free—according to his self-deception. The best antidote for this kind of twisted thinking is to create a culture of encouragement in his home.

The porn-trained child

Porn training happens by abdication. Children are responders, and they will respond, good or bad, to what is given to them. Their hearts are like open buckets, longing to be filled. It is the parent’s joy and privilege to cooperate with the LORD in rearing a child.

Parenting well does not mean your child is home-free. Parenting poorly does not mean your child is predetermined to be bad. A parent’s behavior does not determine the morality of the child. The grace of God does. However, our personal responsibility to biblically steward our children does matter. We should not presume on the grace of God (Psalm 19:13).

The question for us to answer from this article is, “How do I need to change in order to cooperate with the LORD in the parenting of my child?”
