I cannot believe Mr Righteous believes in hitting a child. I have never laid a hand on my son even the times he made mistakes...the reason..I evolved. My son has never been inside a police car..never seen the inside of a police station..prison..nada. I on the other hand who was beaten when late for school..when making mistakes in school work, for losing my way home and for every dam reason the old folks came up with, saw the inside of a few cop cars...been in police stations a few times...thankfully never in jail.
Dam dude get with the program.
You're both laughable especially when you cannot comprehend what is being said scripturally. You both seem to paint a picture as though I or Christians for that matter hit our kids for every or anything they do. I 'll just leave you in your thoughts process.
Growing up I just had to be informed once with the explanation of the consequence of my action and even if I was tempted to test my parents the look my dad would give deterred my temptation.
I did get spank as a child for willful disobedience/rebelliousness. When I hit my tween and into adulthood my parents didn't had to worry about me. The values and correction I receives as a child mold me into the man I'm today. This principle was the key, Proverbs 22:6, "Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it."
Hey bless is the man that never had to correct his child using the rod or place a child in timeout for anything and today that child is discipline as ever and respectful.
