As you will see in this post, the Bible clearly proves why it should never ever be used as a guide on how to raise a child. I must give you a warning: Do not try this at home.
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, his father and mother shall take hold of him and bring him to the elders at the gate of his town. 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.” 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. Deut. 21:18-21
That’s right folks, if your teenage son or daughter is acting like teenagers and you can’t seem to get through to them, like any other parent actually can, just have them killed! Bury them up to their necks and throw rocks at their head until their brains explode all over the ground. No big deal, after all, God said it was okay.
So if you consider yourself a Bible believing , God fearing Christian, I would suggest giving this a try the next time your teenager refuses to clean up their room. One thing is damn certain, if you stone your son or daughter and you have other children, those other children will never step out of line again.
Therefore, the next you son or daughter acts like a typical teenager, you know what to do (wink wink) and don’t worry Im sure once you are seated in a courtroom and explain that you brutally murdered your child because God told you to, I’m sure they will understand, after all, everything we read in the Bible is true, accurate and applicable right?
I know any Christian who reads this post will probably say ‘those were different times. God doesn’t really want us to kill our children’. Yet at the same time those same people will say that God never changes and is the same yesterday, today and forever more. To this I would challenge, if God never changes this means that God still holds the same standard today as he did even before creation. If that is the case, then he still wants is to murder our problem children.
Now the Christian would probably say ‘but we no longer live under the Old Covenant. We have a new covenant with Christ.’ I will admit that this is my most favorite argument from believers because they haven’t taken the time to actually think about what they’ve said. Let me explain…
They make the claim that the Old Testament is no longer relevant now that Christ has come. However, what they have failed to realize is that , according to their beliefs, Christ is God in man form. Can you see where this is leading? If Christ is God in man form and God proclaims that he never changes, that would mean that Jesus being God believes the same as God because, according to their beliefs, he IS God. So, it would be logical to assume that Jesus would agree with you killing you child for misbehaving.
So why aren’t you willing to follow what God teaches? Simply put, because you are more moral than God.
