They suggest vehemently that there is
never a good reason for spanking your
child. The Bible enforces sound reason
to the contrary.
Unfortunately, many Christian parents
are ignorant concerning biblical
instruction for child rearing. They
their instructions from the world.
It is important to understand that God
never allows for child abuse in the
Bible. Any act of child abuse must be
prosecuted to the fullest extent of the
law. Love should always be the primary
motive in the act of discipline with any
child. Proverbs 3:12 - For whom
the LORD loveth he correcteth; even as a
father the son in whom he delighteth.
Always, when God corrects (spanks) those
He loves; it is proof, not that He hates
us, but that He loves us. The Word Of
God demonstrates that you show hatred
toward your children by not correcting
them. Proverbs 13:24 "He that
spareth his rod hateth his son: but he
that loveth him chasteneth him betimes."
Proverbs 19:18 Chasten thy son
while there is hope, and let not thy
soul spare for his crying.
Ultimately, Biblical discipline is a
principle that the world rejects. Why?
The Bible teaches that children are
naturally selfish and are in need of
constant accountability to the laws of
God. As always, the wisdom of God
prevails in this regard. In due process,
the child grows to understand that
decision and action result in
It should be noted that infants DO NOT
need to be spanked. Their ability to
reason is obviously lacking. They cannot
discern the connection between their
action and the consequences.
Spanking an infant or a baby is abuse.
While they uncontrollably display their
selfishness, it is a matter of adjusting
their environment or posture for gentle
Finally, each child is different, thus,
there are times when a spanking is not a
viable option. Use good judgment in
disciplining your children. What is
effective with one child, may not be so
with another. If your child's act of
disobedience is persistent and
demonstrates disregard and disrespect
for authority and the well being of
others, it then becomes your
responsibility to judge what form of
punishment is necessary. This behavior
must be confronted immediately and
consistently with a measured force of
physical punishment. Proverbs 23:14
Thou shalt beat him with the rod, and
shalt deliver his soul from hell.
Biblical discipline helps in developing
a child to a readiness for salvation.
Some children will never get saved
because they were never disciplined in a

just raise good children, but godly

A good rule to determine when a child
should begin receiving spankings is when they
are able to walk. A child who begins to
walk... more often than not, they are
walking into trouble. They do not have
the skill of discernment. Thus,
discipline is necessary. It is important
that a spanking is measured accordingly
and then applied immediately and
consistently. This will enable the young
mind to learn to associate between right
and wrong with consequences.

Why Christians Parents Are Losing
Their Children To The World?
The number one reason why
children with Christian parents
will wander to the influence of the
world is because of the example set
by their parents...
