Quotes on Raising Christian Children.
No woman can control teenage boys
unless she's a real toughie! It takes a man that can
really lower the boom on'm and apply the rod and sock it
What good are parents if they can't
even control their own kids?
Kids who can't behave and parents who
can't control their children don't belong in God's
A father without a rod is no father at all. A father
without discipline is no father at all.
I don't think you should talk about the Devil and his
works around children too much. It's not good, as it gets
their minds on those negative things and begins to make
them fearful to where they spend too much time thinking
God's love can help you love anyone--especially for your
Parents should not discuss financial problems and big
problems of any kind before children who wouldn't
The reason I made it through school and all the unbelief
and persecution was that I was convinced on my parents'
religion. I knew they had the real thing and I believed
in it, and nothing the atheists and the antichrists of
school and education and evolution could do could shake
No wonder the Lord had to increase woman's conception.
Not just as a part of the Curse, but to make sure that
some children did survive, because the Devil was out to
kill'm & stop'm if he could. If he couldn't stop sex
& he couldn't stop nudity, which encourages sex, then
he would certainly try to get the children. And they are
his major point of attack & what he hates the most.
Maybe that explains why so many children die before
they're just a few years of age.
The Devil is really out to get the children, to kill the
children, to neutralise the children, to stop the
children! Because if he can stop enough children he'll
kill the whole generation & the whole World will die
of genocide. Which is no doubt why he's thought up the
atomic bombs & the atomic war, because every other
tactic has failed to stop the population growth.
As a good parent, I keep a sharp eye on this whole outfit
from stem to stern. I run a tight ship & I don't let
anybody get away with anything! I keep an eye even on the
property & inspect everything almost every day,
including the people.
We didn't get where we're at by namby pamby pussy-footing
around & letting people get away with things &
pampering & babying & tolerating & spoiling
our people. We got where we're at because the Lord has
helped me to be a tough father with my children & not
let them get away with anything!
If parents cannot discipline & control their own
children, they have no business in any important job in
If you don't discipline a child from the time they're a
baby, they're going to be a failure & a flop & a
mess & a problem by the time they get to be a year
old, & that's not the poor baby's fault, it's the
fault of the God-damned parents who don't obey God's
rules & our instruction.
Delinquent children are the products of delinquent
Discipline is damned hard work, very hard work, & it
is a constant grind. You don't ever dare let up, not for
one minute, not for one occasion, not on any score
whatsoever. You've got to keep at it to make it
consistent & constant.
How would you parents like it if I tell you you're
involved in deviltry & witchcraft if you fail to
discipline your children?--Because rebellious stubborn
children are the result of rebellious stubborn parents.
If you are too busy to train & discipline &
control your children & enforce obedience, you are
too busy! You're better off not to have any children or
give'm to somebody who knows how to take care of them,
who knows how to train them in the nurture &
admonition of the Lord & raise them in obedience
& self-control, or at least parental control!
God does not put up with parents or children who are
controllable only part of the time. He cannot take a
chance on people who are risky & possibly will fail
when they are most needed. It's either all or nothing at
all with God! Either you are obedient or you are
disobedient, & God will not tolerate any percentage
"He scourgeth every son whom He receiveth!"
(Heb.12:6) Well, I haven't told any parents to make a
Roman scourge with nine thongs & nine bits of lead in
the tips to give their children stripes, long deep cuts
in the back every time they spank them. But that's the
word God uses for His kind of stripes that He gives
people who disobey & rebelliously stubbornly
willfully refuse to do what they're told to do, including
taking care of & disciplining their own children.
They spare the rod & spoil the child. Foolishness is
bound up in the heart of a child & only the rod of
correction can drive it far from him. (Prov.22:15)
"Whom the Lord loveth", He scourgeth, He whips,
He lashes, & it hurts Him more than it does us. One
of the supreme forms of love, one of the most sacrificial
forms of love, is to discipline a child.
. If you don't chasten your children, if you don't use
the rod in obedience to God's laws & drive that
child's foolishness far from him, if you spoil that child
by sparing the rod, you don't love that child or care
anything about that child! You hate that child! God
cannot stand any kind of unfaithfulness in His army
anymore than any other Commander of any other military
force can take a chance on security risks &
disobedience & failure to follow orders & obey
Parents who are neglecting their children & failing
to discipline them & teach them & control them
& punish them & beat them with the rod &
scourge them with the whip, whatever it takes to do it,
are failing God & us & the Family & their job
& the next generation.
As a good parent, you must catch in a hurry children who
are starting to go astray, nip it in the bud. You must
deal with them right away & not take any chances on
any gaps in the armour, any gaps in the wall, any chinks
in the armour, any Achilles' heels, we can't take chances
on any little finger-sized or thumb-sized holes in the
dike or pretty soon you'll have a complete flood that'll
sink the ship.
Parents who fail to discipline their children are a
constant hazard, because if they have let the Devil get
in like that through their disobedience & their
neglect & their downright rebelliousness against us
& our laws & Family laws & the laws of God
& His Word, they are untrustworthy, they cannot be
relied upon. They're a hole in the wall, they're a chink
in the armour through which the Devil can get in &
cause no end of trouble.
If you flatly, willfully disobey & refuse to
child-train & discipline & chasten & beat
& scourge your children & make them behave as God
does, you're going to have to live with that for eternity
in everlasting shame & contempt & have to see the
damage & suffering that your neglect & your
disobedience & your rebelliousness has caused you
God will destroy parents who are destroying their
children & thereby destroying the future, & both
the present & future Work of God.
Nobody is indispensable, especially people who do not
obey. I don't care how good a job you've done at your
technical work. If you have failed on you children, you
have failed! All the typing & all the photography
& all the computer work & all the technology
& all the lit & all the publications & all
that we're doing has failed if we have failed on our
Parents who fail to discipline & make their children
obey & have not yet learned to themselves obey &
who have flagrantly violated our rules of child training
& God's rules of discipline, claiming to love God,
have ruined their children, the gifts of God, pretending
that it was in love when it was in just plain laziness
& refusal to enforce the law & the rules because
it hurt both them & their child.
Your refusal to discipline, child-train, chasten, &
scourge your child is going to hurt you a lot more &
that child a lot more & God's Work a lot more than a
little hurt that would have lasted for a moment in a
spanking or whipping or some kind of punishment. If you
don't change & straighten out & straighten that
child out, your crying is going to last morning, noon
& night, day after day & year after year until
the whole thing goes crash.
You cannot have any link broken in the chain of
discipline, because only one person who fails to
discipline a child can undo all the good training that
all the others have put into him. Lack of unity &
cooperation between parents or among parents &
teachers destroys any possibility of training and
Our children are the future & we must preserve &
protect the future. And if we don't take care of our
children, preserve & protect & train them
properly so that they are good little Christians who know
how to behave, & are good examples & are good
products of good parents, then we have wrecked the
If you think that just a mere resurrection or rapture is
going to remedy everything & God is going to take
care of everything, including your own failures &
mistakes & the mess you've made out of your children,
you've got a sad awakening coming. You're going to reap
tomorrow what you sowed today & yesterday. And you're
going to have to rectify it & change it & get it
straightened out in the future, in the Millennium.
Most children can be forced to be good. If all those
caring for them use strict discipline, faithful,
consistent, continuous unrelenting discipline, they'll
learn very soon that crime doesn't pay.
No matter how faithful you are in every other area &
every other job & every other thing, if you have
failed with your children, you have failed God in the
most important job He has given you to do!--And that's to
prepare & save the future, which is your children.
Either you straighten out & straighten your children
out & make them behave or you have no place in the
rulership of the house of God. If you can't rule your own
household, you certainly cannot rule over the church of
God or have any place of great responsibility or
administration over His government or His people.
A child becomes an adult when they learn to sacrifice for
others & share & help each other, & that's
maturity in the Lord's eyes.
. We should not teach children to be self-confident, but
The reason our children are such wonderful children is
because you parents & teachers have been such
examples to them. They believe in this Family & the
Lord & what we believe, because they believe in you
& know you live it & you are it & they don't
doubt it & they love you & respect & admire
& have faith in you.
