What Does God Think?

Did God really say to not spare the rod?
Did Jesus really say children are the most important in the kingdom of God?

Then how does God feel when a desperate and confused child,
Who has just suffered the rod,
Is kneeling before His throne
Begging Him for answers to why their life is the hardest?
Why were they created to just suffer?

Is trauma really worth it
If you’ll become society’s example of a stronger and well rounded individual, later on?
Is the end really worth it?
If you (almost) ended it all, along the means?

What does God think?

How does God respond to that child growing up traumatized?
A bruise that leaves stains of blood on whoever they meet

Do they deserve hell, then?

  1. We made a law, here in NZ, against this sort of thing. The religious community fought tooth and nail to prevent it passing but they lost. Sadly, kids still get beaten up.

    1. We have a law here in the states for it too, but many children’s childhood are still traumatic because of being beaten. It’s really a shame.

  2. Another powerful piece Sir.
