Is this what it has come down to in Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s America?
Here we have a Christian Couple attempting to follow The Bible (Proverbs 13:24):
24 Whoever spares the rod hates their children,
but the one who loves their children is careful to discipline them.
How clear is that? The parents were keeping an eye on their offspring and noticed that something foul was afoot: they noticed that their wayward son had a lighter in his possession. Now if that were your son and you loved the Lord, what would you do?
You know what you’d do: you’d hire someone from your church to beat the Love of Jesus into him!
An Irvine couple who suspected their 15-year-old
son of smoking turned to a man believed to be relied on in their
church to violently discipline children, authorities said. The parents asked Paul Kim, 39, to discipline their son[…]
Kim hit the child with a metal pole about a dozen times, causing
severe bruising on his legs,
THAT is how one shows true Christian love to one’s kid! So the parents were, of course, singled out as model parents and perhaps set up as an example of good parenting, right?
Not in Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s America! Instead there was this:
Kim was arrested Tuesday at his home and released Thursday after
posting bail. He faces a felony charge of willful cruelty to a child.
No court date has been set, according to jail records.
The San Bernardino County District Attorney’s office was reviewing the
sheriff’s department report and will decide whether to charge the
teen’s father, Bachman said. It wasn’t immediately known whether the
father was present at the time of the beating.
[…] The name of the church was not released but Bachman said it was
located in La Habra.
That’s outrageous! Have we gotten so far away from God that parents can’t even raise their kids according to Biblical priciples.
My goodness; if we are getting so squeamish about a little corporal punishment, what are we to when a son is perpetually disobedient? The Bible is clear (Deuteronomy 21:18-21):
18 If someone has a stubborn and rebellious son who does not obey his father and mother and will not listen to them when they discipline him, 19 his father and mother shall take hold of him and bring him to the elders at the gate of his town. 20 They shall say to the elders, “This son of ours is stubborn and rebellious. He will not obey us. He is a glutton and a drunkard.” 21 Then all the men of his town are to stone him to death. You must purge the evil from among you. All Israel will hear of it and be afraid.
See! If we followed THE BIBLE, childhood obesity would be greatly reduced!
Homosexual rape would also be greatly reduced (Genesis 19:8):
8 Look, I have two daughters who have never slept with a man. Let me bring them out to you, and you can do what you like with them. But don’t do anything to these men, for they have come under the protection of my roof.”
But noooo, not in Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s America. In fact, we have sunk so far that if someone were following the Will of The Lord, they would be turned into the Evil Socialist Government, with Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s approval:
We all know the story of Abraham and Isaac. Abraham is ordered by God to offer up his only son, and without argument, he takes Isaac to the mountaintop, binds him to an altar, and raises his knife, prepared to act as God has commanded.
Of course, in the end God sends down an angel to intercede at the very last minute, and Abraham passes God’s test of devotion.
But it’s fair to say that if any of us leaving this church saw Abraham on a roof of a building raising his knife, we would, at the very least, call the police and expect the Department of Children and Family Services to take Isaac away from Abraham.
He doesn’t stop with his mocking there:
Which passages of Scripture should guide our public policy? Should we go with Leviticus, which suggests slavery is ok and that eating shellfish is abomination? How about Deuteronomy, which suggests stoning your child if he strays from the faith?
What kind of a country is it when you can’t even beat your kid, stone your kid to death, or even sacrifice your kid even as a payment for a military victory: (Judges 11)
1 Jephthah the Gileadite was a mighty warrior. […]
4 Some time later, when the Ammonites were fighting against Israel, 5 the elders of Gilead went to get Jephthah from the land of Tob. 6 “Come,” they said, “be our commander, so we can fight the Ammonites.”
7 Jephthah said to them, “Didn’t you hate me and drive me from my father’s house? Why do you come to me now, when you’re in trouble?”
8 The elders of Gilead said to him, “Nevertheless, we are turning to you now; come with us to fight the Ammonites, and you will be head over all of us who live in Gilead.” […]
29 Then the Spirit of the LORD came on Jephthah. He crossed Gilead and Manasseh, passed through Mizpah of Gilead, and from there he advanced against the Ammonites. 30 And Jephthah made a vow to the LORD: “If you give the Ammonites into my hands, 31 whatever comes out of the door of my house to meet me when I return in triumph from the Ammonites will be the LORD’s, and I will sacrifice it as a burnt offering.”
32 Then Jephthah went over to fight the Ammonites, and the LORD gave them into his hands. 33 He devastated twenty towns from Aroer to the vicinity of Minnith, as far as Abel Keramim. Thus Israel subdued Ammon.
You see: this is the Spirit of the Lord talking:
When Jephthah returned to his home in Mizpah, who should come out to meet him but his daughter, dancing to the sound of timbrels! She was an only child. Except for her he had neither son nor daughter. 35 When he saw her, he tore his clothes and cried, “Oh no, my daughter! You have brought me down and I am devastated. I have made a vow to the LORD that I cannot break.”
36 “My father,” she replied, “you have given your word to the LORD. Do to me just as you promised, now that the LORD has avenged you of your enemies, the Ammonites. 37 But grant me this one request,” she said. “Give me two months to roam the hills and weep with my friends, because I will never marry.”
38 “You may go,” he said. And he let her go for two months. She and her friends went into the hills and wept because she would never marry. 39 After the two months, she returned to her father, and he did to her as he had vowed. And she was a virgin.
Isn’t that fatherly love touching? Now THESE are Biblical values, and I don’t see these coming from Barack HUSSEIN Obama.
