The words of Matthew 6:13 state, “Lead us not into temptation.” Most Christians know these are words of The Lord’s Prayer, a model prayer for Christians. It includes words directed to God, and people know that He is not the one that leads anyone into temptation. However, He puts some people on earth and some circumstances around them that can cause us to stray. For teen girls, like the ones on “Preacher’s Daughters,” boys are of the biggest temptations. Fun that doesn’t occur at church events is another temptation for this age group.
Olivia & Others
- Olivia discusses God’s amazing love in this episode.
- Mark, who is sitting beside her, agrees with her idea.
- This is the episode featuring paternity tests to determine who Aiden’s father might be.
- Later in the episode when she finds out that the young man that she least preferred and least suspected is the father, she is crushed.
- Her father admits that he made grave mistakes in his youth.
She tells her friends about the paternity dilemma when they go out. Olivia is nervous, but the scripture that she discussed is her anchor.This scripture is from Roman’s 8:39 where the promise that even a laundry list of possible problems will not separate God’s people from His love.
Kolby double-checked with her new boyfriend Micah to make certain he still agrees that they are not going to have a sexual relationship while dating and hanging out. In case they lapse, her mother is sticking to them like a blouse when they attend a party. She doesn’t want them outside, nor hugging and embracing. They do all of that. “I trust Kolby, I just don’t want her alone with Micah right now,” Kolby’s preacher-mom explains.
This is Kolby’s 30-year old sister. She admits that that she was not a virgin on her wedding night. She finds out that her public admission brings Kolby a great deal of spiritual confusion. Teryn was not anticipating this.
Taylor’s dad realizes that she is an attractive girl who will gain male attention. He is another father who admits that he could have lived better as a young man. (For example, he brings up that he got two women pregnant at the same time when he was a youth). In this episode, parents discover that the girls went to a party at a hotel where there were equal parts girls and boys.
When Taylor’s dad finds out, his imagination takes him to a scary place. He states that hotel rooms are specialized places where certain things go down. He is dismayed that his daughter lied to him. “You have to pay the piper,” he states, and follows it with the proclamation that he is the piper.
Daddy laid down the law. “Tell your daughter to come in here,” he says to his wife when they got home. He gave her two chances to tell the truth, and she failed the test. He tells her that she has to be in the house when the street lights come on, and that she can not receive phone calls. The mom also weighs in, and Taylor senses her disappointment. “That made me feel super bad,” Taylor admitted. To demonstrate that they don’t believe she is mature, they banish her to her room like a little kid.
Considering how some of the fathers came clean and admitted that they had some days of misspent youth, this episode might have been better named “Daddies Weren’t Angels.” That would piggyback off the previous episode, which was named “Daddy’s Little Angels.” It’s good that these parents can recall their own waywardness, because it sets the stage for them to deal with their girls with more even hands. Hopefully, the even-handedness will emerge in the next episode. It was somewhat lacking in this one.
