(Pro 23:13 KJV) Withhold not correction from the child: for if thou beatest him with the rod, he shall not die.
You are not supposed to “beat” (5221) a child in our modern thinking. You need to accept something. “Modern” thinking is the exact opposite of the Word. This is just another example of the problem. In modern school the problem is self-esteem. The level is too low and must be raised. In the Bible the problem is sin. The level is too high and it must be lowered. In the modern school this is done by skilled counselors and by freeing the beautiful inner being from the shackles of the social pressures. In the Bible it is done by the blood of the Perfect Lamb of God to destroy the wicked inner being of a rebellious, self centered sinner. In the world it is being freed to be yourself. In the Bible it is being set free from yourself.
I could go on.
So? There are times when the Bible will make you uncomfortable because you have been trained by people who have adopted the ways of the world and the devil. It takes a conscious deliberate effort to turn you mind into the paths of God. That and the help of the Holy Spirit.
