Where in the Bible can be found anything related on how parents should treat their children? (please specify text) Also does it say anything about spanking. This question was NOT intended to create an argument. Please be kind.

  • In the Bible, God clearly commands all parents to spank their children. "Unbelievers", who reject what God said about Jesus in His Word, The Bible, will have their part in the "Lake of Fire", according to this same Bible in Revelation 21:8.

    Spanking does not hurt children - it helps them. The reason that it helps them is that "foolishness" is "bound up" in the heart of a child. Spanking will "drive" this foolishness from them, enabling them to lead a happy and productive life. (Proverbs 22:15) As the saying goes, "no pain, no gain"

  • In the old testament it states "spare the rod, spoil the child"......I think many people take this and go overboard with it though, and its also not mentioned in the new testament....it does say we are to discipline our children though.....it also says children are the closest thing to God and most like him and we should love them that way......I would ahve to do some research to get the actual passages etc.....

  • anon thanks. OP

    Spanking in the Bible:

    The phrase "spare the rod and spoil the child" is often incorrectly attributed to the Christian Bible. It does not appear there. It was first written in a poem by Samuel Butler in 1664. 1

    Corporal punishment is strongly recommended in the Hebrew Scriptures (Old Testament). Most of the biblical quotations advocating corporal punishment of children appear in the book of Proverbs. Christians interpret these passages in different ways:

  • He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes. (Proverbs 13:24)

    Back then it was an eye for an eye......cursing someone wasn't modern day cursing like "f u", it was more like "I hope YOU and all your crops get swept away and killed by a tornado" or "I hope lightning hits you".......cursing them to die...

  • "Honor thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee," Exodus 20:12. "Honor thy father and thy mother, as the LORD thy God hath commanded thee; that thy days may be prolonged, and that it may go well with thee, in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee," Deuteronomy 5:16. "Ye shall fear every man his mother, and his father . . . ," Leviticus 19:3. "Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. Honor thy father and thy mother; which is the first commandment with promise; That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth. And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord," Ephesians 6:1-4. "Children, obey your parents in all things: for this is well pleasing unto the Lord. Fathers, provoke not your children to anger, lest they be discouraged," Colossians 3:20-21.

  • "My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother," Proverbs 1:8. "A wise son maketh a glad father: but a foolish man despiseth his mother," Proverbs 15:20. "Children�s children are the crown of old men; and the glory of children are their fathers," and, "A foolish son is a grief to his father, and bitterness to her that bare him," Proverbs 17:6, 25. "A foolish son is the calamity of his father," and, "He that wasteth his father, and chaseth away his mother, is a son that causeth shame, and bringeth reproach," Proverbs 19:13, 26. "Hearken unto thy father that begat thee, and despise not thy mother when she is old," Proverbs 23:22. "Correct thy son, and he shall give thee rest; yea, he shall give delight unto thy soul," Proverbs 29:17. "For whom the Lord loveth He chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom He receiveth," Hebrews 12:6.

    also, spare the rod is pretty much, like a PP said. (cont)
