Proverbs – Chapter 23: Untitled

Still several chapters of Proverbs to go.  The Bible is not yet done giving us ‘wisdom’.  Without the Bible we wouldn’t understand the necessity of beating our kids with rods!  So let’s read on very carefully so we come away with true wisdom gained.

“You will vomit up the little you have eaten and will have wasted your compliments.” – Proverbs 23:8


“Do not move an ancient boundary stone…” – Proverbs 23:10

This is a repeat of a previous saying.  SMH.

“Do not withhold discipline from a child; if you punish them with the rod, they will not die.” – Proverbs 23:13

Another repeat.  The Bible thinks it is soooo important to beat your child that it repeats the instruction multiple times.  God says it is moral to beat your child.

“…for an adulterous woman is a deep pit…” – Proverbs 23:27

Another repeated saying.  

Thirty sayings of the wise my ass!  Half of the sayings are repeated. I realize I’m not taking the time to do an official, but there might be twenty or so distinct sayings of the wise and one of them is beating your kid!  The Bible says you need to beat your kid to save him/her from death. Seriously? Christians…please read your Bible. Do you really find this book and this god moral?
