Where's the Rod?

Parents and Preachers,

Our children shouldn't be bad!!!

"Withhold not correction from the child: for if thou beatest him with the rod, he shall not die. Thou shalt beat him with the rod, and shalt deliver his soul from hell." Proverbs 23:13-14 KJV

"Don’t fail to discipline your children. They won’t die if you spank them. Physical discipline may well save them from death." Proverbs 23:13-14 NLT

It's the word of God! There is a HUGE difference between physically punishing children in love and abusing them. I don't advocate abuse by any means. It concerns me that so many believers now feel that all physical punishment is abuse.  We mustn't throw out the word of God because of the ignorance and ill manner of a few. True, godly parents, who follow the word of God, understand how to discipline in love, with the rod.

It's the Bible. It's still the truth, and it still works. In fact, it's one of the best things my family (notice, I didn't just say 'parents') did for me. ORDER IN THE CHURCH!
