On Earth As In Heaven
The family is the created image of the Triune God, the highest and fullest expression of God's image in humankind. As such, the family is a unit of persons in relationship with the overall purpose of providing for the spiritual and social needs of its members. The church is the custodian of God's word and is responsible for the nurture of its families, not only in godliness, but also in social and cultural adjustments and in generation-to-generation survival and growth. As John MacArthur says, "It is difficult to see how Christianity can have a positive effect on society if it cannot transform its own homes."
