North - Baptized Patriarchalism - Cult Of Family (1995)
This is Gary North's amazing book Baptized Patriarchalism - The Cult of the Family (1995) which shows that conservatism's modern cult of the family puts too much pressure on the family, increasing the likelihood of a loss of faith and social breakdown. It seems impossible that anyone could attack the Christian family by promoting it, but this is being done today. This strategy is insidious. In the name of strengthening the family, its supposed defenders are removing its most important foundation. The autonomous family is no match for the state. From the earliest days of the church until now, that state has undermined families by offering them subsidies of many kinds. In our day, "free" education is the bait for one hook. So is compulsory Social Security: let the government support your parents and then you. There are the two most sacred political cows in the United States, and most of the industrial world. But this economic undermining of the family is only the first step. The other corrosive force comes from within the camp of the faithful: a new theology of the family, which is in fact the old theology of the family: Cannan's. This view asserts that the family possesses greater authority than the church of Jesus Christ. It argues that the family, not the institutional church, is designed by God to be the central institution in Christian society. But what did Jesus say about the autonomous family? Without the support of the institutional church, the family is a weak reed. The Christian family always succumbs to the state whenever it is not in close convental alliance with the institutional church. The state grows ever-larger whenever Christian families do not pay their tithes to the local church. In our day, we have seen the results of the erosion of outside support for the family: the march in statism, with middle-class Christians bringing up the rear but funding the lion's share of its costs. As the church has lost the allegiance of Christians, the state has replaced it. It is time to strengthen the family by de-funding the state and funding the local church. But there are those within the camp who deny this, who claim that the church is secondary in the war against statism, that the patriarchal family is central. It is time for Christians to reject the theology of the patriarchal family, root and branch. This book shows why. 90 pages. A must read for everyone.
