Just as with ‘Gay Marriage’ they ruin the many under the guise of protecting the few, for there are already laws out there to punish those who would dare abuse a child. Binding the hands of guardians only breeds contempt for parental authority.
2 Timothy 3:1-2
1 - But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come:
2 - For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy.
As a child I neither cared for nor understood adult reasoning. Why? because I was a child and thought as a child.
1 Corinthians 13:11a
When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child [and] I reasoned like a child.
However there was one thing that quickly focused my childish attention, and that was the simplicity of the rod when held in righteous hands.
He who spares his rod hates his son,
But he who loves him disciplines him promptly.
For just as the farmer prunes his vine before beating it to receive fruit in its season, so too does the skilled parent receive a wise child once summer has ended. Yet these so called ‘experts’ would take away the rod and pruning hook from the hands of those who care, that their only reward should be the stinking maggot infested fruits that fall long after summer has ended.
The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and still we are not saved.
And ‘Oh’ how the liberals long to portray all Christians as the merciless beaters of innocent children, who neither know nor understand how a loving Father watchfully labours over us, trimming, pruning and rebuking with all diligence those who appear in His Vine which is Christ, even in the Son in whom He delights. That we with Him might receive an everlasting inheritance when we appear in His Kingdom.
John 15:1-2 + 5
1 - “I [Jesus] am the true vine, and my Father [God] is the gardener.
2 - He cuts off every branch [False Christians] in me that bears no fruit, while every branch [Faithful Christians] that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful.
5 - “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing”.
Yet Satan would have all children without a dresser, that they should grow into unruly vines. Whom spending your years of toil upon worthless leaves, outstretched stems and twisted branches... should offer only shame and confusion to crown an old age.
A foolish son is a grief to his father, and bitterness to her who bore him.
But God would not have it so, but commands all God-fearing parents to dress their vines wisely. Whom drawing nourishment from the soil over which you have long toiled, might grow to crown your ageing head with a garland of grace, and that before envious eyes.
See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently for it until it receives the early and latter rain.
However too many parents are not willing to prune their vine while still green and tender, choosing rather to overlook every transgression under the guise of love that they might enjoy the unripe shoots of an early harvest today, even the green shoots of childish adoration. Only to discover years later that their supple vine has become an uncompromising and dry creeper, spoiling the garden and baring them no fruit at all forever.
He that rebukes shall find more favour later, than he that flatters with the tongue [today].
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old , he will not depart from it.
Dealing with a Nation.
However, although God deals with each and every soul on an individual basis, there comes a time when He is forced to deal with those Nations that have become completely corrupt, this in the hope that a few grapes maybe saved from the cluster. When this happens God ceases to strive with that nation, but sets children to rule over it that they might fill their cup all the faster, thereafter to drink from the wine of God’s wrath, even to the dredges. For it is in the furnace that silver is refined, and in tribulations are wheat grains separated from the tares of corruption.
4 - “I will give children to be their princes, And babes shall rule over them.
5 - The people will be oppressed, Every one by another and every one by his neighbour; The child will be insolent toward the elder, And the base toward the honourable.”
And it is this which I fear has befallen the United Kingdom, even that God has finally ceased striving with our Nation. And with our cup full of State sanctioned injustices, corruptions, immoralities, Gay Marriage, the quickie divorce, Women bishops and an utter hatred for the fatherless, widows and the poor... shall soon be forced to drink from. A similar putrid mixture that Scripture states the whole Earth shall shortly be forced to drink, as did the old World. But not wine mixed with water as before, but on this occasion mixed with fire, even as God gave Sodom as an example.
2 Peter 2:5-6
5 - if He did not spare the ancient world when he brought the flood [Water] on its ungodly people, but protected Noah, a preacher of righteousness, and seven others;
6 - if he condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah by burning [Fire] them to ashes, and made them an example of what is going to happen to the ungodly; [At the end of this age]
1 - “For behold, the day is coming, burning like an oven [Fire], and all the proud, yes, all who do wickedly will be stubble. And the day which is coming shall burn them up,” says the Lord of hosts, “that will leave them neither root nor branch.
2 - But to you who fear My name the Sun of Righteousness shall arise with healing in His wings; and you shall go out and grow fat like stall-fed calves.
3 - You shall trample the wicked, for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet on the day that I do this,” says the Lord of hosts.
