Asshur shall not save us; we will not ride upon horses: neither will we say anymore to the work of our hands, Ye are our gods: for in Thee the fatherless findeth mercy. – Hosea 14:3
If I...have eaten my morsel myself alone, and the fatherless hath not eaten thereof; (For from my youth he was brought up with me, as with a father, and I have guided her from my mother's womb)...if I have lifted my hand against the fatherless, when I saw my help in the gate: Then let mine arm fall from my shoulder blade, and my arm to be broken from the bone. For destruction from God was a terror to me, and by reason of His highness I could not endure. – Job 31:16-23
Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world. – James 1:27
Forbid Them Not Ministries is founded upon the principle that God has commanded us as His followers to care for the fatherless and that, in fact, according to James 1:27 it is part of His definition of pure religion. Our desire and purpose is not only to meet the needs of the children in our local community but also to fulfill the command of Christ to go into the uttermost parts of the earth by assisting other individuals, churches, missionaries, and organizations around the world, which have dedicated themselves to reaching the fatherless.
