Faith is a touchy subject, and yet we know when you stand for nothing, you fall for anything – especially in the social network.
Ultimately, the kind of leadership required to empower family life in the cyber wilderness is anchored in faith. Much like the authority of the people empowered by their Creator provides limited power to a government of the American republic, the authority of the parent is inherent and cannot be seized. It can only be lost if it is surrendered because it is a divine appointment.
Without this truth and faith in God’s sovereignty, we are left with empty roles of authority models laid to waste by the boundary-less, internet-powered network culture.
(Excerpt from The Authority In Me: The Power of Family Life in the Network Culture, 2011)
John 10:27-28 My Sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
All it takes is one mustard seed of faith to get a fresh start.
