Friends, let’s spend a little more time talking about the lost children of the house of Israel. It is the children of Leah, the children of the second family, that established the family law that we still honor today – they had daughter in laws and father in laws. The children of Jacob’s second family abandoned the covenant that God had made with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Genesis 18:19: “For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him and they shall keep the way of the Lord..”
The following is taken from my book:
“Marriage and family were based upon laws – laws that made it possible to dissolve relationships and eliminate family members. We also know that the woman and child were held responsible if conception occurred outside of “marriage” because Judah suggested that Tamar be burned at the stake.
Obviously, the man was innocent because there was no mention of punishment for Judah for impregnating his daughter in law. Laws are similar in this country today. We do not burn women at the stake, but we do hold them accountable for the decisions that a man makes. We have abortion, adoption, and abandonment to eliminate the child, especially since “marriage” never occurred. The man has little or no responsibility for the woman that he impregnated outside of “marriage.” He can just ejaculate and move on. This man thinks that he is god.”
