John 5:19-30 "I can only do what I see my father doing."
Where are the absent fathers in this day and age? Young men as well as women need their natural fathers as a role model. I know that some of these young people father may have died but where are the men that will take the place of the absentee father,

On Thursday September 18th, 2014 the Hermetic Hour with host Poke Runyon
will present a discussion on the career and contributions of Marcus the Valentinian (died 175 a.d.). Marcus was as much a Hermetic as he was a
Gnostic Christian. The Church Fathers accused him of being more Pythagorean than Christian. He was the developer of the Soma Sophia system of celestial Greek qabalah which we have decoded and perfected (see The Seventh Ray, Book III ) and, according to Kiren Barry Marcus had an influence of the creation of the later Sepher Yetzirah. Marcus developed some of the basic concepts of what became the qabalah. Marcus was a Phonecian, influenced by the earlier Samaritan Simon Magus. Like Simon Marcus had a Priestess whom he venerated as an equal. He gave communion with his priestess by his side and turned water into wine at the altar. The early Church Fathers considered this blasphemous.
Marcus's cult spread from the Middle East to Southern France in the days
before Constantine force-reformed Christianity. So, if you want to explore the most ancient origins of what we call "The Western Tradition," then tune in and we will spend an hour with a man who may have been the first Rosicrucian.
PimpPreacher.com - Today we will talk about Black Fathers in 2014 and how many active fathers are still getting marked absent during role call. Are you having problems parenting a child from a past relationship? We will also discuss the reentry into a childs life after being gone for the first half of their lives. As a father how do you feel about Adrian Peterson?
Nearly 11 million fathers in the United States do not live with their children. Two-thirds of these fathers do not pay formal child support.1 Society is rightly concerned about the widespread failure of absent fathers to contribute to their children's support. And a variety of recent policy initiatives are strengthening the enforcement tools necessary to ensure that "deadbeat dads" are identified and required to fulfill their child support responsibilities.
But what exactly is a deadbeat dad? Most people would agree that he is someone who shirks his duty for no good reason. Our data show that 4.5 million nonresident fathers who do not pay child support have no apparent financial reason to avoid this responsibility. None of these fathers are poor. On the other hand, these data also show that 2.5 million nonresident fathers who do not pay child support are poor themselves.Although this brief focuses on poor nonresident fathers, it is important to keep in mind the wider context of child support avoidance. Poor fathers are only about one-quarter of all nonresident fathers (figure 1). Even though nonpoor fathers are more likely than poor fathers to pay child support (44 percent versus 10 percent), for every poor father who does not pay child support, there are nearly two nonpoor fathers who do not pay.Of the 2.5 million poor nonresident fathers who do not pay child support, the two largest groups are black (41 percent) and white (40 percent), with Hispanic fathers (14 percent) accounting for most of the rest. The average age of poor nonresident fathers is 34 years, about two years older than the average poor custodial mother who does not receive child support.For poor mothers, the message from Congress is twofold. First, poor mothers should go to work to support their children. But second, if they do so, the government will provide certain supports to help.
WHO IS THE GOD OF FORCES!!!!!!!!!!!!
And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done.
"He will show no regard for the gods of his fathers or for the desire of women, nor will he show regard for any other god; for he will magnify himself above them all. 38"But instead he will honor a god of fortresses, a god whom his fathers did not know; he will honor him with gold, silver, costly stones and treasures. 39"He will take action against the strongest of fortresses with the help of a foreign god; he will give great honor to those who acknowledge him and will cause them to rule over the many, and will parcel out land for a price.… Daniel 11:37-39
The identity of this "god" has been perplexing on a number of levels. For instance, in the first part of the passage it tells us this evil man does not worship "any god" but is said to "magnify himself above all." Yet the very next verse tells us hedoes "honor the god of forces." This seeming inconsistency is actually a significant clue as to the true identity of this enigmatic deity.
The life coach, John Davis Marshall, along with other spiritual minded people of God, discuss how God seeks to manage masculinity. Individuals and groups have their views of family. Most often, the view is a “law” view. Even, the most conscientious compassionate ones host a law view of family. God has a view. Always, His view is a “grace” view. And as always, His view is the best view. Join with us in a discussion forum of life-enriching topics that will help us to manage mascilinity according to a grace view. Indeed it is true, a better you begins with a grace view of God!

*Lets a child know that he/she is loved. Love involves more than saying the words, ” I love you.” Fathers who love their children demonstrate their love by spending quality and quantity time with their children. Children who feel loved are more likely to develop strong emotional bonds with their fathers and develop healthy self-esteem.
*Provides a child with greater financial resources. Research indicates that families with an active father are “better off” financially. This means that children with active fathers are more likely to have access to resources that facilitate healthy development (e.g., food, clothing, shelter, quality medical care).
*Provides a child with a positive male role models. Children tend to model behavior (positive and negative) that they witness on a consistent basis. Active fathers can promote positive behaviors by setting a proper example for their children.
*Provides a child with emotional support. In addition to financial support, children also need emotional support from their parents. Active fathers listen and support their children when they experience joy, sadness, anger, fear, and frustration. Fathers who support their children emotionally tend to raise children who are more in tune with the needs of others.
*Provides a child with guidance and discipline. From infancy, children need proper guidance and discipline. Active fathers play an important role in teaching their children proper behavior by setting and enforcing healthy limits.
