So that's why my head wanted to explode I appreciate all the time you put into this. I think we all knew that something was really, really wrong with this debate. You made a great analysis, and brought a lot of clarity.
Tough teaching delivered well... Thanks, Paul...
Paul delivers areas of STRIVING for parents, particularly fathers. 1) know the Scriptures, 2) be Biblical examples, 3) Love, Teach, and Govern your children Biblilcally.
Paul's theme throughout much of his teaching is that the world's 'wisdom' and culture has poisoned much of our Christian life and the Church, and this theme is present in this teaching as well.
Well thought out.
Solidly tied to Scripture.
Delivered firmly but mercifully.
