Subversion of the family: one of the greatest evils of modernity

*

Most Men use their love of other people - especially love in the family - to understand the nature of God's love for us (it being like that of a wise and devoted Father) and ours for Him (like his grateful, trusting child).

I personally think this is a deeper truth than mere analogy - but even if regarded analogically it is the best 'way in' to understanding the nature of divine love for many or most people. 

Subversion of reverence for the family is among the greatest evils of modernity - because family is the primary metaphor for divine love

To misunderstand the family leads modern Man to misunderstand God - to find Him incomprehensible.
