Added to that I like family life and large families as I grew up in one and its great fun. I am convinced that part of the problem with the world is that people are becoming less and less family oriented and replacing family life with activities that are socially destructive.
Being in a family teaches you about being in a group but it also
teaches you to be outside of other groups, it teaches you to be selfish about your kin.
Then when the number of groups grows to a size that outstrips the available resources,
the groups begin to fight and kill each other. This has happened since the dawn of man.
Would you say that at that stage the family groups have become socially destructive
or are they constructive in that they allow one of the groups to survive?
We can see this happening in present day in many countries and on a larger scale, wars
being fought between nations. Family groups in positions of power and wealth.
So my question is this. If Christianity purports to lead the way for people living together
in a more decent and harmonious way, why does it make no attempt to address this
behaviour? I should say that the same is true for Islam and almost all other religions.
