Matt Walsh is Wrong on Not Spanking Children: Christian Answers with Pastor Jeff Short #290
While I usually agree with conservative commentator Matt Walsh on a wide variety of issues, I sometimes disagree with him. This time, again, I disagree with him on his stand against using spanking as a discipline tool for children. The Bible clearly outlines spanking as permissible for parents in certain circumstances. That should settle the issue for Christians, but Matt Walsh uses reason, logic, scholarly research, expert opinion and personal preference as arguments against the biblical command. This is not a legitimate option for a Christian. I'll explain how once again Matt is "leaning on his own understanding," against God's Word, which Christians are warned against doing. When God's Word and human reason contradict we must always choose God's will.
