The Father-Wound

The Silent Pandemic of the Father-Woundedness 

    Barack Nyongesa(r), his wife Mercy (l), and their 6 children have undergone a radical spiritual and economic transformation through Core 300

“After 30 years of counseling and working with some of the most broken people in the world, I’ve found that 95% of the inner turmoil, despair, and emotional wounds people carry with them, are the results of one or more wounds inflicted upon them by their father.”

Today, the world is slowly yielding to–and yawning to what is the most cataclysmic pandemic of escalating father-deprivation in history. The ratio of single-mom-led households to those homes with 2 parents, approaches 50/50 in many US States (nationally we are the second highest in the world) and is 70% (#1) in Kenya. Symptoms of this destructive social phenomenon which was catalyzed by the Boomer–or–“Divorced” Generation. Under the assault of the radical left lies of a self-centered feminist movement, some 60% of families were deprived of the father living at home. Due to the stability of a man’s career–uninterrupted by pregnancy–and the choice for moms to stay home–single moms also have born the fallout of loss of much of that income, and a precipitous fall below the poverty line for then and their children.

The “failure to launch syndrome” of young men, common in most US neighborhoods today, reveals millions of “boys that shave,” without resilience, firm discipline, or the forward-looking purpose of his role model. He lost his paternal compass–and, for many the mom too. Before the “liberation” movement, she was often home, but now she  “has it all,” working 40-60 hours/week, often away from home.

Today billions of our children worldwide are raising themselves to adulthood without a 2-parent home.  Rest assured its resultant debilitating internal psychological trauma–often called the father-wound by psychologists–is evident in the daily newspapers and murder and 5-fold (versus women) suicide statistics worldwide. Whereas a mass-murder-suicide once stunned our nation, the escalation of this unanswered violent crys for help and justice are greeted by a national shrug, with most not even being reported by the media.

  • Wherever you see violence, corruption, power-lust, immorality, vendetta, or rebellion against parents,  you are witnessing the fruits of father-woundedness.

  • It is this writer’s opinion that this wound–if unhealed by the intervention of another older man, is the chief contributor to most of the evil recorded in history.

  • The spirit of rejection invades a child’s psyche by the age of 5 or younger.* seeds future rage, mental illness, and self-loathing in its host. Most will grow into victimizers of other innocents

  • This is why God continually commanded Israel and later, the Church, to heal and protect the fatherless, homeless, prisoners, and the abject poor. He knows and feels the pain of billions of broken hearts every moment and yet his Church does not listen nor seem to care.

The most unsettling yet unseen danger to civilization is the increase in single-mom households–where there is no stabilizing, protecting, providing, or present father in sight.

NGOs – Inadvertently Doing Evil While Trying at Good 

“Our government [funded by outside forces to direct aid away from males] has failed the man and the boy child (teen) for 20 years. Our men and society is unravelling, and Core 300 is the only organization we can go to that has a proven solution.”

                –Saphia Awil, – CEO, Youth, Welfare, and Gender Affairs, Bungoma County, Kenya

In the last 60 years, NGOs and western governments have providentially supposed they could fix fatherlessness–and has tried to do so in a variety of ways. Yet any results gained by just throwing trillions of dollars (US) and armies of well-meaning social workers at this social pandemic has been outweighed by dramatically worsening the situation. Yet politicians keep doing the same thing over and over.

In the US, the “investment”  of 750 million federal dollars under the Obama administration was mostly squandered when large sums were stolen by regional and innercity ministers, activists, and politicians, and social workers.

In Kenya, just before stepping down from office, Obama’s State Department released a sum of 250 million USD grant to a recently formed Cabinet Office of Gender Affairs. This time, all of the money had to be directly spent on girls, girls teens, and women–at the exclusion of any human male over the age of 3!.

Core 300’s efforts to apply Scripture-based and Spirit-inspired solutions to bring emotional and spiritual transformation into a man’s life through its 3-year Curricula has accidentally become the Divine prescription that heals the father-wound and establishes a new and improved identity in a man’s soul; The entry of the “Spirit of Adoption” into a man’s heart.

A spiritually awakened and transformed man can bring transformation into his family and beyond, for in a short 8 years, almost 200,000 children have had their father-wound healed and their own father’s heart and time turned towards them.
