It’s Crazy Bible Verse Tuesday! It’s also July 4th, so be careful with any fireworks you launch! Today’s verse is another among many in the Bible that teaches family ‘values’.
“Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord.” – Colossians 3:20
There is so much wrong with this verse. Yes, parents want their children to listen and obey, but there’s a difference in obeying when appropriate and obeying everything at all costs. If a parent beats their kid, the kid is to obey? If a parent asks a kid to do something immoral, the kid is to obey? If the parent asks their kid to do something illegal, the kid is to obey? No! No, a thousand times no! This is not a family value. It is child abuse.
