God Crated the family as the basis of human society and civilization. It’s purposes are:
- to reflect God’s glory (Genesis 1:26)
- to enable man to multiply and control the earth (Genesis 1:27-28)
- to supply the companionship essential to human well being (Genesis 2:18-25)
This ancient story reveals that the family is important in all the dimensions of human existence – the spiritual, physical, economical, biological, social and psychological.
This family order is God breathed. (Genesis 1:26-31; 2:18-25)
