The bible says it's okay to spank a child for wrong doing......what do you say
The Bible says you will not kill your child if you use a rod , you will actually save him from going to hell.
It means that by the time you find a cane or whatever your anger has cooled a bit and you think, so you are not spanking in anger but for correction.
The Bible also says do not let the sun go down on your anger, which means you will not remain angry with your child another day.
It is important to connect scripture and apply them, than take them out separately and use it the which ever way a person wants to interpret it
"The much-touted 'biblical argument' in support of corporal punishment is founded upon proof-texting a few isolated passages from Proverbs. Using the same method of selective scripture reading, one could also cite the Bible as an authority for the practice of slavery, adultery, polygamy, incest, suppression of women, executing people who eat pork, and infanticide. The brutal and vindictive practice of corporal punishment cannot be reconciled with the major New Testament themes that teach love and forgiveness and a respect for the sacredness and dignity of children, and which overwhelmingly reject violence and retribution as a means of solving human problems. Would Jesus ever hit a child? NEVER!"
The Rev. Thomas E. Sagendorf, United Methodist Clergy (Retired), Hamilton, Indiana. Personal communication, 2006.
"If we really want a peaceful and compassionate world, we need to build communities of trust where all children are respected, where home and school are safe places to be and where discipline is taught by example."
Desmond M. Tutu, Archbishop Emeritus, Nobel Peace Prize recipient, Global Initiative to End All Corporal Punishment of Children, 2006. See www.nospank.net/globalreport.pdf
Ten Reasons I Can't Spank A Catholic Counselor's Critical Examination of Corporal Punishment By Gregory K. Popcak, MSW, LCSW
"I have always been an advocate for the total abolition of corporal punishment and I believe the connection with pornography that is so oriented has its roots in our tradition of beating children."
Gordon Moyes, D. D., Pastor, Uniting Church, Superintendent of the Wesley Central Mission, Sydney, Australia. Excerpt from personal communication, 1980.
"I have never accepted the principle of 'spare the rod and spoil the child.'... I am persuaded that violent fathers produce violent sons... Children don't need beating. They need love and encouragement. They need fathers to whom they can look with respect rather than fear. Above all, they need example."
Gordon B. Hinckley, President, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, October 1994 General Conference.
United Methodist Church:
UMC General Conference, May 3, 2004, takes a stand against corporal punishment in all settings.

Rita Swan, introducer of both resolutions, describes strategy
absolutely! a child yes... an adult no... unless maybe its your wife and she likes that sorta thing..
Children don`t remember their spankings later on in life, unless they are harsh beatings.. there`s a difference, but spanking is fine, worked for hundreds of years and produced some good children. People of the bible ought not to be politically correct. PC is a spirit of anti-christ.
If more children were smacked when naughty then there would be more well behaved polite kids around .
A wooden spoon banged on a benchtop as a warning as what will happen if they dont stop being naughty can help!
Spanking is good if you do not mean about it or mad at the child. I can remember getting spankings from my mom and she was always mad when it happen which makes it much worse.
I think the cause of so many problems and pain in this world come from a complete lack of discipline. Spanking is a key to effective parenting. Note that I am saying spanking and not abusing. If you are leaving injuries on your children you are taking it too far.
