A child will hate his parents if they take away their favorite toy... but if that toy is a knife... is it right to let them have it?
All depends. What century are you talking about? If love is the same for everyone, then surely you'd agree that love has meant the same throughout
time. What did good, loving parents give their ten year old boys back in the 1700's? Answer: Hunting knives and guns.
Would you let a 30 year old man molest your 13 year old child? Of course not. But, back in the day, and as a loving, caring father you would have let
a financially well-to-do man MARRY your 13 year old daughter and let her have his babies.
Well there would be no point in talking about any time but the present... The past doesn't exist... nor does the future... So lets just keep with
the present shall we?
Loving parents still give their children Guns and knives... but back in the 1700s we didn't have children going into schools killing anyone they can
either... back in that time guns were a tool, and our children were taught not to play with them as a toy... In this time we give "toy guns" and
toy knives to our children... we let them play video games which depict murderers as the Hero's of the game... Guns are toys in this age, and we're
taught that they are toys through the media at an early age... And people wonder why kids use them as such...
And IF I had a daughter ( and I pray that I never do) she wouldn't leave the house until she was 30 herself... lol
especially in the age we live in...
Perhaps we gave away our children at such an early age because certain "priests" taught us it was right back in the day?
Where else could such trash come from but the OT?
