- because family is the primary metaphor for divine love.

To misunderstand the family leads modern Man to misunderstand God – to find Him incomprehensible.

Thus, Bruce Charlton.

This dovetails with his previous post about how without God you cannot love your neighbour.

As I’m sure Bruce Charlton would agree, the family is more than just a metaphor for divine love. It *is* divine love, taking its first toddling steps.

This is interesting in light of the more liberal blogs trying to rewrite the Family Proclamation as something more palatable. And quite frankly, that reminds me of the religions reforms under king Josiah, which changed and purged all sorts of things, under the guise of restoring faith. To which Jeremiah replied, “For my people have committed two evils; they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water.” Jer. 2:13
