Do not withhold correction from a child. For if you beat him with a rod, he will not die. You shall beat him with a rod, and deliver his soul from Hell!. Proverbs 23:13,14
To carry this thread a bit further concerning the discipline of our children is necessary for us to sometimes see the times we are in and the consequences we are suffering because we have neglected to discipline entire generations of kids that have completely run off the rail!
Because of Liberal intervention in education and basic child training, not to mention the possible charges brought against parents who spank their kids we have backed off of discipline and the results have been catastrophic. No boundaries, consequences or discipline for their actions, kids are running wild and free! We are responsible for the children we raise who will someday be in charge and you can already see what kind of generations have been raised up in these last days who have been raised by electronic devices.
"Tech Zombies" who worship the all seeing I-PHONE, the god of the millennial generation who have no moral compass and no clue about the Lord Jesus Christ or the way of salvation live in a land of virtual un-reality and fantasy. This gives way for the spirit of anti-Christ to possess their hearts being a godless generation, ripe for a demonic harvest of their souls. Sounds like science fiction but it is true and we are seeing the results of years of child-neglect play out on the global stage with transgender-ism, sexual confusion, drugs, mass shootings, suicide and a multitude of mental disorders destroying our youth.
For God established a testimony in Jacob, and appointed a law in Israel, which He commanded our fathers, that they should make them known to their children; that the generation to come might know them, the children who would be born, that they may arise and declare them to their children, that they may set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep His commandments; and may not be like their fathers, a stubborn and rebellious generation. A generation that did not set its heart aright, and whose spirit was not faithful to God. Psalm 78:5-8
Your servant in Christ, Timothy Laughlin
