As we go along the path of life we all realise that physical beauty is not everything. You might like a person afar off, but when you get close, and see some things, you may change your mind. We have all been through this before.
If only we would discern people the way the bible says we should, we would have more quality relationships in our lives (2 Corinthians 5: 16), “no ye no man after the flesh”. No man means no man. Sometimes people choose to do wrong, and this is not based on their appearance. I.e. how they look.
Much is said of fathers in the bible. Fathers are good providers, Luke 11: 11 If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent? Fathers correct and discipline their children Proverbs 3: 12 For whom the Lord loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth. The Lord also becomes the father of the fatherless which means that the role of a father must be important in a person’s life. Psalm 68: 5 A father of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows, is God in his holy habitation.

Everyone likes freedom and liberty. Nobody wants to be bound or stuck to something that is unpleasant.
Lets have a brief look at this scripture:
2 Thessalonians 2; 8 - 10
And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved
