How Much Are You Allowed to Love Your Children?

Ronal Reagan gave this speech:

I, a number of years ago, I heard a young father – a very prominent young man in the entertainment world – addressing a tremendous gathering in California. It was during the time of the cold war. And Communism and our own way of life were very much in people’s minds that he was speaking to that subject.

And suddenly, though, I heard him say, “I love my little girls more than anything…” and I said to myself, “Oh no don’t! You can’t! Don’t say That!”

But, I had underestimated him. He went on, “I would rather see… my little girls die now… still believing in God… Than have them grow up under Communism and one day die no longer believing in God.”


There Thousands of young people in that audience. They came to their feet with shouts of joy… They had instantly recognized the profound truth in what he had said… With regard to the physical and the soul and what was truly important.

And after that he goes on about praying for the people of Russia and the evil communists. You can watch the rest of it below if you want, but the point I am raising here is that these people are all advocates that:

You are not supposed to love your children more than God and, if they (the children) are not going to believe in God then their lives have less value.
