Family values

One of the popular panaceas which some politicians prescribed during the General Election campaign was the need for a return to family values.

Mr Peter Grainger

Now the breakdown of the traditional family unit in our increasingly secular society is a matter for grave concern. Rising divorce rates, couples living together outside of marriage, same sex relationships and all sorts of other pressures have brought about this sad state of affairs. However, before we wholeheartedly jump onto this bandwagon, I believe we need to think the issue through a little more carefully and biblically. Above all else, we need to ask if the nuclear family is indeed God's blueprint for society.
