Father Hunger

Doug Wilson in his marvelously challenging and insightful work Father Hunger observes:

Father Hunger is one of the chief symptoms of our idolatry. It is the basis for our political follies, our cultural follies, our technological follies, and so on. But the solution is not to schedule numerous family retreats. The solution is to announce, preach, and declare that the kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of God, and of His Christ.

In order to overcome this American idolatry, men must first need to act as Christians. It is the first principle of kingdom living.

{This is developed in a couple of chapters of The Church-Friendly Family}
