Dear BG and John,
Well, I see that you don’t see what I see. Both of you talk only of parents influence on chldren. True, that is important but it is not all. Mordern Nuclear Family concept conditions our minds to think the family means ‘Father, mother and chldren’. The child (for that matter everyone) needs a much wider circle.
There is an English saying ‘You need a village to make a boy into a goodman’.
Majority of the Nasrani’s are today ‘nuclear family members’ hence it is understanable that they can’t think outside the ‘box’. It is not just this adult generation that is at fault, but even their parent’s generation. The problem has not been sufficiently addressed and hence insufficiently understood. For the vast majority of the Nasrani’s the thought process is ONLY NUCLEAR FAMILY.
The first point for recovery from an illness is to admit the illness. If you insisit that there is no illness, then there is no point trying a cure.
