WELL, well, Terry Banfield: how did I know that your cage would be rattled with my response to your letter of the January 9 re-child punishment and the Bible!

How very cunning of you to twist my response! I actually informed you that you were composing the negative scriptures with child punishment. It’s a pity that a section of my original response to you was omitted so I will quote them again. Mark Chapter 10 verse 16 – “Then He (Jesus) took the children in His arms and Blessed them.” Ephesians Chapter 6 verse 14 warns fathers not to exasperate or provoke their children, but to bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord. Colossians Chapter 3 verse 21 tells us not to embitter our children as they will not be discouraged. Terry Banfield, in the closing days of time, you (as an atheist) and I (as a Christian) will surely know who believed and accepted the truths of “superstitious goat herders”. I pray that you will come to your senses and ignore questionable science that is fallible in most cases.
