1 Timothy 5:8 says, “But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.”
There is not much more I can say to expound on this verse. We have a Biblical responsibility to provide for our family. This includes both spiritually AND as the verse is talking about: physically. Providing for our family means that I must have a means of making money in order to buy the food/clothing necessary for my family.
Now...most people provide for the family that lives with them. What about the children they have had and no longer live with? A Christian should not have to be forced by the government to support the children he has “fathered”. Supporting his own is a God given responsibility.
