I've started a new book, Gospel-powered Parenting by William P. Farley (published by P&R Publishing, copyright 2009). In it, he lists "7 Ways in which the Gospel affects parents" (pgs. 46 - 48). Here they are: 1. The gospel teaches parents to fear God. 2. The gospel motivates parents to lead by example. 3. The gospel centers families in their male servant leaders. 4. The gospel teaches and motivates parents to discipline their children. 5. The gospel motivates parents to teach their children. 6. The gospel motivates parents to lavish their children with love and affection. 7. The gospel is the solution for inadequate parents.
This is what the rest of the book is going to be about, in this order. Do you agree with the above list? Do any of his reasons give you pause? I'll share more the farther I get into the book.
