Who Owns the Children?

Who owns your children? Who determines your child’s fate? Who decides what your child will wear, eat and what they will believe? It costs hundreds of thousands, if not millions of dollars to raise a child. Parents make unbelievable financial sacrifices to raise a child as they plan for their future. Parents go through unbelievable heartache in their role as a parent as we rise and fall with our children’s accomplishments and setbacks. Parents rejoice when their child takes their first step or speaks their first word. Parents are forced to forsake the follies of their young adulthood in order to provide for their child. Parents agonize when their child is sad. And God forbid, a parent’s life effectively ends when they lose a child.
With all the tribulations it takes to raise a child, there should be no question that the final authority to raise a child rests with the parents. The ultimate authority over a child, resides with the parents. The Bible clearly tells the parents that they are in charge of your children with the following admonishment:
“Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother”.
Please note that the Ephesians verse does not command children to honor thy President, or honor thy TSA, nor do the scriptures command children to honor the CPS, DHS and FEMA. When one examines the natural order of things, it is clear parents are to be clearly in control of their children.
Our Twisted Society Has Usurped Parental Authority
It feels as if every element of our society is conspiring to undermine the authority that parents have over their children. Melissa Harris-Perry speaks clearly to this fact with the following statements made on MSNBC.
