The Wondrous Strangeness of the Natural Family

There is no human mind that can engineer a family better than the divine mind; there is no ability that anyone possesses to rethink the family that is superior to Almighty God.

Have you heard about platonic parenting? What is it? It is an arrangement of two or more people who join forces for the sole reason of having and raising a child. Person thy options are limitless. It is clear that we are in a time of tremendous upheaval as it regards parenting. The key idea is this: it doesn’t actually matter who parents a child provided somebody (or somebodies) raise a child.

As the Church, we don’t have the pressure to figure out a familial outline. We believe in God’s design for the family; Genesis 2:24 shows us that a man pursues a woman to build a new family with one woman to the glory of God. We actually step into a living worldview that God has already set into motion; Christians believe that we are participants in this grand drama of doxology where we glorify God. There is no human mind that can engineer a family better than the divine mind; there is no ability that anyone possesses to rethink the family that is superior to Almighty God.

Those who are really going to suffer from these platonic arrangements are going to be children. It doesn’t take a village to raise children. It takes a father and mother who are dedicated and know the Lord.
