Just when you think you've heard the worst concerning child abuse, you hear something else that lets you know, "you ain't seen nothing yet." Just recently there was a story on the local news concerning a man who locked a child inside a dog house for his punishment. Now no matter what the child had done wrong, how can one justify locking him in a dog house? This type of cruelty really gives truth to the phrase, "in the dog house."
But the horror doesn't end there. This idiot lit a cigarette and started blowing smoke into the doghouse in order to torture the child! What kind of nut case is this guy? Doesn't he understand that second-hand smoke is dangerous to anyone inhaling it? Yet this man went ahead and threatened the child's health with this kind of stupidity. But fear not, the authorities got the man, and he was arrested. Thank God!
There is just too much abuse directed at the children; I'm speaking of beating them until they die. Smoking, drinking, taking drugs, viewing or listening to immoral movies or songs around them. Keeping the child values pure is not in the plans of many parents.
Some single parents are having sex with others in the house, demonstrating to the child how to live an immoral life. Also with one night stands, comes the danger of the parent subjecting herself and the child to a possible killer or weirdo. Treat your children right, and if you don't want to do so, DON'T HAVE CHILDREN!!! (Matthew 7:11, Matt. 23:37, Mark 10:13-16, Colossians 3:21, 1 Thessalonians 2:7).
Hope to hear from you or to see you at the services.
