This is Pastor Martin's Father's Day sermon delivered June 19, 2011. The text of this sermon is Deuteronomy 22:8 , where God directs the Jews to ensure the safety of their homes for the people who live and visit their houses. They were to put battlements around the roof so no one would fall and injure themselves, or even possibly die. Our homes need moral and spiritual battlements (railings) around them to protect our families from the evils of the world, the flesh and the devil. If you want to protect your family, then you need to learn how to "fortify you home and family" with Biblical principles.
