If you have worked with him then you know his family. So here is an idea, why not ask his family what actually happened! Since the newspaper twisted the whole thing!!! Stop being a coward and posting stuff online, where you don't have to put your name! Bc I have news for you, half of what they wrote was wrong!
Just saying

There's a line between abuse n discipline. I'm a grandmother. And I don't take crsp from anyone including disrespect from child. Expect to have your tail busted for it. I don't think I've had todo that for years now. Don't expect to have to do it in future? Why? Simple, cause they know I love them but won't be disrespected in any way. They're good kids n no problem when I want to take them shopping, out to eat etc. they behave n everyone enjoys themselves, all of us n everyone around!'

Good! Children should have their human rights protected as much as anyone else! Kids can't and won't learn from punitive punishments! Kids need disipline; to be taught right from wrong. Hitiitng kids only teach that they can hit when someone displays a behavior they don't like. Violence begets violence....

My grandparents raised over 12 kids and all productive citizens. My parents raised their kids and no one ever went to jail etc i raisd 7 children , two are drs., one has three degrees including masters of physics, one is a teacher, one an RN , one in military , one has his own business, and one, who is legally blind, is a good mother. All three generations were raised to respect adults, work hard, behave, and get a education. I say this because it was done with discipline, yes, spankings if needed, and lots of love. It works! Look what's happened to at least one generation raised with this new idea of let's be friends'

"Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour." 1 Peter 5:8

God chose the analogy of devil/lion to help us understand how the devil works and how to defeat him.

The reason God chose that analogy is...
"...since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse." Romans 1:20

God is teaching us through "parables" through nature everywhere we look. The more you understand about the way the world God created works, the more you know what God intends for us. It was awesome of God to do this for us in case we end up surrounded by false teachers someday. They can't change how the world works so that truth is always there for us to find...

The Bible says...
"Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me." Psalm 23:4

God chose the analogy of God as a shepherd protecting humans like sheep. When David was faced with the scariest moments of his life, it was God's staff (gps) and His rod (weapon like a modern gun) that made him feel safe. God's rod was not for David but for David's enemies.

The Bible says...
He who withholds his rod hates his son...Proverbs 13:24
God chose the analogy of shepherd/parent...because anyone back then (when it was written) would know that if you withhold your rod from your flock of hate them because you're not protecting them from the lion.

David was a shepherd. He said that God's rod made him feel comforted because God's rod was used against the predators...just like the rod that David used to protect his sheep.

So, you're a hungry lion...aka the devil...and you see a child and you want to get to that child. But, God has designed the parent to be the child's armed bodyguard and to instinctively stick with that guard until they're strong enough to defend themselves...just like in nature. Children are designed to find comfort in their parents' guidance and protection.

So, why is it that nearly all the "Christian" teachers about child rearing teach the parent/ turn...and use the weapon...on their sheep/child?

Why is it that nearly all "Christians" believe that it is good if their children "fear" them???

The lion/ a crafty one...
"He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies." John 8:44

Your children are a precious gift from God...helpless and fully dependent on you for everything from day one.

"The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly." John 10:10

So, has the devil lied to you so as to better steal, kill, and destroy in your family? Are you the armed shepherd that keeps the lion/devil away from your sheep who all know the safest place is to be as close to you as possible?

Or, have you believed the lies that have saturated the church via men like Dobson, Pearl, Tripp, and Ezzo...and are now actively weakening your sheep/children by turning the weapon God gave you against the enemy on your children...and driving them away from the safety of your presence?

How do you use the weapon God's given you against the devil (your rod) in your home? God says that the truth is so obvious you are without excuse...(Romans 1)

Did you just really quote from a book that has been revised, translated, and rewritten hundreds of times and usually in defense of the political pressures of the times?
