    someone should have told my parents that prov. wasn't about corporal punishment. i pretty much had that scripture tattooed on my ass.

    moved back to Proverbs "the rod"

    Jackson says it absolutely doesnt mean corporal punishment.

    when asked if he would agree it meant physical punishment when written he agreed it might.

    Then he was asked does that mean you have "interpreted it for modern day?"

    And when a girl was raped and sold to her rapist... we don't take that literally. But we take all the rest of the bible literally, like the 2 witness rule.

    booom! da judge lays down the hammer on jackson over interpretation of scriptures and whether the gb have to follow the bible strictly as understood at the time it was written. The bible says corporal punishment is ok but the gb are saying that it isn't ok. jackson says the wts doesn't accept corporal punishment... CRAP!!

    As an organization they don't encourage corporal punishment?!? What about Proverbs about using the rod to punish a child?

    Whoever spares the rod hates their children, but the one who loves their children is careful to discipline them. - Proverbs 13:24 NIV
