CHILDREN IN CRISIS!


The subject matter of this posting is a rather touchy one that tinkers a little with my heartstrings, as I am one of many South African fathers who has lost a child through state-sanctioned abduction. This happened when a Judge saw it fit to transfer sole custody and care of my 11-year old daughter to the ex, who decided to depart South African soil for Australia soon thereafter, making it near impossible for me to keep abreast with my child’s upbringing and day-to-day activities. In other words, the almighty powers of the state has denied me my right to be a father to my child, and my child has been denied the right to have a dad.

Since then, I have learned that there are 1000’s of South African dads in the exact same predicament as I am. Like me, they too have spent countless hours in courtrooms fighting for joint parental custody, only to be callously shrugged-off by a cold and heartless Judge, who usually makes a decision based on the prejudiced and narrow-minded recommendations of the Family Advocate’s Office.

I suppose at the end of the day, one parent is better than no parent at all! To think that there are nearly 4 million orphans in South Africa, 859 000 of whom are double orphans who have lost both their parents, is shocking to say the least!

Satan and his cronies have truly jammed their fangs deep into the hearts of the future generation, haven’t they?

In an older posting on this blog - THE MASTER PLAN TO DESTROY CHRISTIAN FAMILIES, I mentioned how things have changed since the good old days. I also spoke a great deal about how this wicked enemy of ours, accomplished the destruction of family values, and what methods were used over the years. I urge readers to take note of what was said in that article.... Even if you have already read the article in the past - go read it again!

The sad fact of the matter is that things are not going to get any better, and definitely not in the near future!  Why would I have such a pessimistic point of view? The answer is simple: South African families and families worldwide as well will be kept in a constant state of crisis, because the situation feeds various social services – jobs our governments have created.... No crisis – no jobs!  Do you really think that governments will find solutions for all our social problems? If they do, what do you think will happen to the 1000’s of people they have employed to manage and ‘service’ this calamity?

Governments will spend billions of taxpayers money to find solutions, do research, conduct campaigns, draft lengthily reports, provide recommendations, and so on… but at the end of the day - it’s all a smokescreen!

(A perfect example of this was presented in an older posting: 16 Days Of Activism – A Worthless and Destructive Cause, on the Tia Mysoa Blog)


“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
Ephesians 6: 12

The same principle applies to other manmade industries: The divorce industry, the pharmaceutical (drug) industry, psychologist/psychiatry industries, and so on... All these multibillion-dollar industries exist because people’s lives are kept in a constant state of crisis!

When the social crisis has an effect on the lives and wellbeing of children, then one is inclined to wonder if a God really exists, for what kind of god will allow children to suffer?  Now be careful - because this is exactly the kind of trap satan has planted for us.... He wants us to believe that God does not exist, or doesn’t care! Can you see how easy it is to fall into this trap?

AS CHRISTIANS WE NEED TO UNDERSTAND TWO FUNDAMENTAL FACTS ABOUT CHILDREN – AS FAR AS GOD IS CONCERNED:

Fact No.1
Newborn babies already have the Spirit of Truth within their souls, for they were delivered via the womb directly from the Kingdom of God. (See Matthew 18, Mark 10:15, Luke 18:17, and I John 4:4)

I John 4:4
Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

Matthew 18:1-5
[1] At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?
[2] And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,
[3] And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
[4] Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
[5] And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.
[6] … continuous after Fact No.2

Fact No.2
Any person who messes with a child’s mind is in deep hot water with God.

Matthew 18:6
But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.

Although there are numerous demented souls out there who have ill-treated and abused children, governments and their institutions (principalities) have been the greatest offenders. The problems have always dramatically escalated out of control in societies where a communist-regime have taken over the reigns of power.

Two thirds of children grow up without both parents

Only a third of children are living with both of their biological parents, according to a new report released by the South African Institute of Race Relations this week.

The report, The First Steps to Healing the South African Family, shows that 40% of children live with their mother only, 3% live with their father only, and 23% live with neither of their biological parents. Some 8% of children live in ‘skip generation households' with their grandparents or great aunts and uncles.

Ms Lucy Holborn, family project manager at the Institute, said, ‘There are nearly 4 million orphans in the country, 859 000 of whom are double orphans who have lost both their parents. Many of these children have lost their parents to AIDS. However, nearly half of all children have living but absent fathers, meaning that the AIDS pandemic alone cannot explain family breakdown in South Africa.'

The proportion of children with absent but living fathers has risen from 42% in 1996 to 48% in 2009.

‘What emerges from the data is a pattern of many men not taking responsibility for their children. Unemployment and poverty contribute to this phenomenon, but probably so too do male attitudes to women and sex,' Ms Holborn said.

The report highlights international and local research which shows that children growing up without a father are at a significant disadvantage when it comes to educational outcomes, employment prospects, behaviour, and future relationships.

‘Family is not an issue that is high on most policy agendas, but we believe our research demonstrates that the cycle of dysfunctional families needs to be broken in order to address many of the social problems in the country.'
