Things are tough without a Father

    Is it possible that the lack of "natural" fathers in the family circle today is a major reason why so many folks have a problem with relating to God the Father?

    It is a given that there are a variety of reasons why people do not believe.  This is just one area.  Let's see if we can stay on topic.

      I think that's a valid point.
        It seems completely logical to assume that whatever image or idea we have of an earthly father will be superimposed upon the concept of a supernatural one, should we believe in it. It's only natural that we do so. We can only see or perceive of an idea (such as a father) based upon our own experience or information.
