Again you do not understand the Bible. You should read it sometimes, starting with the New Testament. You have just quoted old testament law,
applicable to the Hebrew tribal culture, that was never fully followed. The turning over of a reprobate child to stoning was a voluntary measure. I
believe we do the same for children that have comitted murder and other atrocities.
The rod of discipline is a good concept that is used in almost every serious military, martial arts training, and in the coporate world. The carrot
and stick is used to train donkeys. Why is this so hard to understand? The Bible is absolutely correct. If you hate your child, then don't
discipline him. Let him smoke dope, join a gang, commit crimes and drop out of school.
If you decide to actually not use the brain God gave you, and use the concept of discipline to support your program of child abuse, that's a whole
other story. But Jesus warned us there would be false prophets and wolves in sheeps clothing.
