Did you see Joe Bennett’s opinion piece in yesterdays (Wednesday 30 Aug 2006) Dom Post? I don’t normally find myself agreeing with Joe, but he hit the nail on the head. Click here to see his article. In summary, Sue Bradford seems to believe "kids are little balls of innocence who would grow into loving angels if only we adults didn’t warp them." Whereas, I believe:
- We all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23)
- God disciplines those He loves
- Nobody likes discipline at the time, but it is necessary for character building, and improvement of behaviour.
