Before Christ manifested himself in flesh, He had a Father!

When He came to Earth He had a Father in Joseph

This means fathers are important, Now there are some like me, who might not be with fathers but I can assure you when he was still living, I learnt a lot from him.

Future fathers, and those who are already fathers what role can you play in making sure that the future generation is sound, God fearing, and upright?
Why is it kids born in SDA families are the very ones who end up pregnant out of wedlock, leave the church etc. Have fathers forsaken what the Lord had commanded them?

I am sure Joseph played a good role of an earthly father and as a matter of fact, he is mentioned in the beginning of Jesus' life and then he disappears he must have trained Jesus so well in that Jesus at 12 years of age reasoned with professors of law, divinity and theology with doctoral degrees of the time!

Future fathers/ parents, and those who already are parents what do you think has gone wrong with our kids especially those born in SDA families?

Brother Joseph, I rarely heard of SDA people having children out of wedlock and other things like that. I think because the church I go to have a lot of very young children. I go to a church that has a lot of people who are old enough to be my parents.
Well that's what some say on other forums!!
Hello Joseph :)

I think it doesn't have anything to do with just the father but on how (and whoever the guardian is/are) the kid was raised. Just an observation, most kids who ended up getting pregnant out of wedlock were raised in a very strict homes thus they tend to rebel and just go against their parents because of frustration of being told what to do and not what to do their whole lives, not having much say in their own lives and not being allowed to reason-out to their parents or their parents not listening to their reasoning. I based this observation from the people that I personally know irregardless of the religion.

Our parents are not the only ones who "raised" us. The school we went to "raised" us and most of all the environment we grew up in "raised" us. Whatever choice we make in our lives our fathers cannot and should not receive all the blame. If we made a mistake we should own to it. As the Bible says: Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.
Philippians 2:12
Hello Joseph :-)

As a parent myself, I have to receive the Holy Spirit and the Love of God so that I can be the dad that I need to be.

Only as I appropriate the merits of Jesus blood continually, which enables me to receive the promises of God that will write in my heart the knowledge of being a loving dad, can I hope to be the parent God requires of me...

We need to bow our knees before our true Fathers throne, pleading the blood of Jesus and asking for the wisdom and love to be a good parent.

Amen, Thanks Mark for the advice
You are welcome my friend, I did not have a good "earthly" dad, so my heavenly one is one I appreciate :-)
