No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.5 “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”
A traditional family can be defined as “a family structure that consists of a man, woman, and one or more of their biological or adopted children” with the mother and father role being filled by a husband and wife. Based on the confirmation that God is our Creator in Colossian 1:16 which states “For by Him (God) all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through Him and for Him” and reality of John 15:5, the husband and wife should be followers of Christ.

Society has lost their stability in God by replacing Him with momentary idols. Therefore, discipleship from strong Godly Christ following believers is a necessity. Jesus’ example of proper discipleship throughout the Four Gospels should be mimic by believers. We are God’s children and through His Son God taught His children which direction to go so that we will never depart from it. This allows us to overcome the struggles of the world. It is through the stability of a strong parenting that this can be taught properly our offspring.

- God’s existence plays a major role in Descartes’ arguments in the Meditations, especially the Third and Fifth Mediations.

- Beginning with the understanding that God as written in biblical text is all powerful, all knowing, and good we then seek to more deeply understand how it is that God allows evil to exist. From the initial text in the Bible referring to the creation of Adam and Eve we are able to see the step-by-step creation of the different elements in our world.
