Paternity Test

18/06/2018

 

The DNA paternity test is a molecular methodology used to determine if two individuals are biologically bound or not. This process of comparing the genetic code of people was created by the British geneticist Alec Jefreys in 1985 in the University of Leicester in England.

 

Since its creation this test has been used by judges to clarify the doubts in cases when men refuse to accept the paternity over children that are supposedly theirs. When the test indicates so, there’s no way to deny being the biological father, for the scientists ensure that the test has a 99,99% reliability rate.

 

True paternity however goes much beyond the simple acceptance of getting a woman pregnant. It is not enough to assume being the biological father of the new born, after his birth he must be cared for, the father together with the mother must provide physical, emotional and spiritual support till the child reaches the age of majority, and probably beyond.

 

What could reveal a paternity test that would measure the care offered to our children while growing up; a test that would include the measurement of the physical, emotional and spiritual condition of our children? 

 

The word of God attributes to the father the tremendous responsibility of being the provider and teacher of his children. Alone he will never succeed in fulfilling it, more than the fundamental help of his wife he will need the indispensable help from the heavenly Father to accomplish it.

 

One of the biggest challenges of my life has been to take the true paternity test. To have to teach my own daughters, identifying in their behavior my own behavior mistakes and having to correct in them what was also wrong in me. Only accepting the heavenly Father’s paternity over me and his correction, was I able to assume the paternity over my daughters to instruct them.

 

Alleluia, with God we can be true fathers and face the paternity test!

 

  • What physical, emotional and spiritual care did you receive from your father?

  • How do you imagine the ideal father?

 

 (To teach your children, Ephesians 6:4 – To lead your children, 1 Timothy 3:12)
