Tony, there is a difference between training versus discipline.

Sometimes. Other times disciplining is training.


Mama Thank You For Disciplining Me

That's the message I gave to my Momma as well. Sad there's very little chance of this tradition continuing.

My comment is a little off topic, but don't you just hate Pop-Ups? I was reading this and all of a sudden my screen was blocked by a Pop-Up ad. It seems every Christian site you go to these days has these darn pop-ups and it's so annoying. Makes me want to just leave then and there. Do I need patience? I guess.

Yes. Sites aren't free, they need to be paid for. And also, you could use a spirit that doesn't judge. Parents, Dispensationalists, Bart Ehrman, whatever.

A spirit that doesn't judge is the reason that the church is failing and parents have backslided, Dispensationalists rule and Bart Ehrman debates in seminaries.

Proverbs 31:9 "Open thy mouth, judge righteously, and plead the cause of the poor and needy.'

That does seem to be the path that the world, as well as the church is on. I would only suggest that Christians do not defer to give timely thanks for their Godly discipline. To parents, Guardians and God.

I somewhat agree with Betty. I really don't think that there is any evidence that parents are to blame for Christianity's decline.


 &TY  There also is no evidence of the Church's decline. That's a myth conjured up by conservative Christians to justify their attacks on the church.

 )S_Confused(  No Evidence?

Mt 24:15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand: )

Whosoever reads, let him or her understand. I understand that many see the abominations standing in the holy place as liberated women, love and progressive thinking. That's what they see, but that's not what is.

The attacks on the church are by liberal Christians changing times and laws, and by conservative Christians rooted in this physical world and its kingdoms. Not by Bible believing Christians who read and understand that abominations that lead to desolation.

That's your opinion, not evidence. Why don't you and Erik actually give evidence instead of your personal views. You're as bad as Paul.

So a bible passage, that we testified, which is directly from God Himself is not considered an evidence to you? No wondering that you cannot receive the Truth. 

2 Thessalonians 2:9-11
[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.
[11]  And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts." (Isaiah 55:8-9)
