I also don't have any problem spanking other people's unruly kids if they bring them under my covering, and refuse to take their G-d given authority and use it, because they'd rather be their friend than their parent (also a form of the fear of man). Peace

I guess the grandiosity goes hand-in-ego with the pomposity.

What? You don't wallop other people's kids when you've decided their parents aren't up-to-snuff? Heathen!

If you'd sent in three box tops and gotten the decoder ring you could smack their little behinds, cloak yourself in religion and brag about it on the internet.

The beliefs are barbaric but thankfully God is NOT what they believe. Those who DO accept the barbaric beliefs have to answer to God, not me.

You would not have faired well if you had been around to do that to my children.

If they're under my covering, I do, and I'm supposed to. Not bragging, just pointing out how subtle the spirit of fear of man is. The serpent is more subtle than all the other beasts of the field. If your flesh wasn't so busy being offended, it might have received wisdom from that. Peace

Well, that would remain to be seen, wouldn't it? I also expected other parent's to do the same to my children if they were in a position to be their covering (and told them so) and my kids needed it. Idolatry can include family members, which is why He talked about it. Parent's that defend their kids behavior no matter what they do and/or turn a blind eye to it, JUST on the basis of them being their kids, are not doing their duty to their children, nor obeying Him to tend their garden. Peace

This is the exact same extreme and unreasonable dichotomy that the ET believers use: If you don't believe God is going to torture people forever, it means that you think God winks at sin. Say what?

Me not hitting my children, or anyone else's, is not the equivalent of "turning a blind eye or defending their behavior". Please educate yourself about children and stop resorting to violence to control them. It takes a lot more time and effort and energy to connect with, teach and encourage than it does to whack and control a child by force or intimidation, for sure. Don't be lazy.

Wrong again. I wasn't offended. I was, once again, weirdly bemused by the sanctimonious arrogance of religious extremists.

I'd be offended if some religious busy-body decided I wasn't doing my job as a parent. I'd be offended if that religious busy-body had the arrogance to decide she knew what is best for my child. I'd be in full Mama Bear mode if that religious busy-body put her hands on my child without my permission.
