I Found Mercy

Sitting in children’s church, I’d cringe listening to Mr. Leroy and Mrs. Delane as they told us about Adam and Eve’s sin.

Why Punishment Isn’t a Bad Word

If a child doesn’t have any experience with being punished, how will he understand the sacrifice of Jesus, who was punished in his place for all the child’s sins?

It is not love to withhold careful punishment. It’s every bit as abusive as the parent who snatches his child up in the heat of the moment and beats him.

One feels the pain now. The other feels it for eternity.
