Mark 7: 15 – 23, says 15There is nothing outside a person that by going into him can defile him, but the things that come out of a person are what defile him.”   Do you not see that whatever goes into a person from outside cannot defile him, 19since it enters not his heart but his stomach, and is expelled?” … 21For from within, out of the heart of man, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, 22coveting, wickedness, deceit, sensuality, envy, slander, pride, foolishness. 23All these evil things come from within, and they defile a person.”

Jer 7: 9 says The heart is deceitful … and desperately sick.  So a great deal of godly fathering involves helping our children to see right from wrong, by getting in touch with what God’s heart is on any issue. By contrast, the world says, “Follow your heart.”  What really should happen is that Godly training takes place, so we follow God’s heart. Discovering God’s will for our lives is discovering what heart really fulfills out heart.

As fathers, we must guide our children from the sins mentioned in Mark 7:20-23, which are coming from within the hearts of people in power within our sin-sick society’s government run educational system which also are encroaching into our churches, schools and homes to defile our families.

As faithful fathers do their job to defend faith and family, our children see the difference between sin and righteousness. That is what lifts our families up in liberty.
