About This Project

If you destroy the family, you destroy a nation.

This is one of the most important episodes that I have to offer you. What we’re going to talk about today on the deep dive is fundamental to who we are as a society, as a community, and as a nation.

By destroy, I mean you redefine a nation. That is that is what we are experiencing with the Cultural Revolution happening in America right now.

Civilization cannot be sustained when parents lose authority over their children.

We are in #5 of the 10 commandments and you might know what that one is. It’s about parents. It’s about honoring fathers and mothers.

Why is it so important to honor your father and mother? Let’s dig in to God’s Law and find out how the commandment holds civilization together.

Levitical Holiness

  • Leviticus 19:1–4 (ESV) And the Lord spoke to Moses,
    saying, 2 “Speak to all the congregation of the people of
    Israel and say to them, You shall be holy, for I the Lord your
    God am holy. 3 Every one of you shall revere his mother and
    his father, and you shall keep my Sabbaths: I am the Lord
    your God. 4 Do not turn to idols or make for yourselves any
    gods of cast metal: I am the Lord your God.
  • Leviticus 20:8–9 (ESV) Keep my statutes and do them; I
    am the Lord who sanctifies you. 9 For anyone who curses his
    father or his mother shall surely be put to death; he has
    cursed his father or his mother; his blood is upon him.


Reverence is a Godly value for a healthy community.

  • Proverbs 16:31 (ESV) Gray hair is a crown of glory; it is gained in a righteous life.

Punishable in life

  • Proverbs 30:17 (ESV) The eye that mocks a father and
    scorns to obey a mother will be picked out by the ravens of
    the valley and eaten by the vultures.
  • Judges 16:21 (ESV) And the Philistines seized him and
    gouged out his eyes and brought him down to Gaza and
    bound him


Punishable by death

  • Exodus 21:15–17 (ESV) “Whoever strikes his father or his
    mother shall be put to death. 16 “Whoever steals a man and
    sells him, and anyone found in possession of him, shall be
    put to death. 17 “Whoever curses his father or his mother
    shall be put to death.


Communal Responsibility

  • Deuteronomy 21:18–21 (ESV) “If a man has a stubborn and
    rebellious son who will not obey the voice of his father or
    the voice of his mother, and, though they discipline him, will
    not listen to them, 19 then his father and his mother shall
    take hold of him and bring him out to the elders of his city
    at the gate of the place where he lives, 20 and they shall say
    to the elders of his city, ‘This our son is stubborn and
    rebellious; he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton and a
    drunkard.’ 21 Then all the men of the city shall stone him to
    death with stones. So you shall purge the evil from your
    midst, and all Israel shall hear, and fear.


Law of the Unfair Father

  • Deuteronomy 21:15–17 (ESV) “If a man has two wives, the
    one loved and the other unloved, and both the loved and the
    unloved have borne him children, and if the firstborn son
    belongs to the unloved, 16 then on the day when he assigns
    his possessions as an inheritance to his sons, he may not treat
    the son of the loved as the firstborn in preference to the son
    of the unloved, who is the firstborn, 17 but he shall
    acknowledge the firstborn, the son of the unloved, by giving
    him a double portion of all that he has, for he is the
    firstfruits of his strength. The right of the firstborn is his.


Abused in Jesus’ Day

  • Matthew 15:3–9 (ESV) He answered them, “And why do you break the
    commandment of God for the sake of your tradition? 4 For God
    commanded, ‘Honor your father and your mother,’ and, ‘Whoever reviles
    father or mother must surely die.’ 5 But you say, ‘If anyone tells his father
    or his mother, “What you would have gained from me is given to God,” 6
    he need not honor his father.’ So for the sake of your tradition you have
    made void the word of God. 7 You hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy
    of you, when he said: 8 “ ‘This people honors me with their lips, but their
    heart is far from me; 9 in vain do they worship me, teaching as doctrines
    the commandments of men.’ ”
