Athiest, no one is called to kill their children. You just want to make our God look bad so you pick and choose.
(Mark and Matt.) are only quoting one passage, that in (Lev. 20:9). That was the law then and the Fifth Commandment to honor father and mother. Complete respect for parents. Doing the very opposite of the command to honor or to revere (19:3) had fatal consequences. Jesus referred to this text. He was not commanding the Pharisees and Scribe's to kill their kids, He was mentioning the Old Test. law and how they didn't follow the law and followed traditions of man. Many other commandments in the old Testament brought death. Touching the ark of the Covenant brought death also. Walking into the temple unclean brought death.
---Mark_V. on 9/7/12


The answer is simple. To break a commandment is what we call a mortal sin, a sin that can put your soul "to death" as in, hell, if not repented. "honor thy father and mother" is a commandment. the above scriptures you have quoted refer to die in the spirit, not literally kill your children.

1st Timothy 5:4 applies to TODAY

Explained:

---let the children and grandchildren learn to do this. Let them have an opportunity of performing their duty toward their aged parent or grandparent. Do not receive such a widow among the poor and dependent females of the church, to be maintained at public expense, but let her children support her. Thus they will have an opportunity of evincing Christian kindness, and of requiting her for her care. This the apostle calls "showing piety"

Again Rod4him, your making more speculation. There is no evidence that the oldest son was to financially support his parents.
---Jed on 7/4/12


Jed, Matt 7:11-13.

Consider also that in ancient times there was no social security. Property was handed down and the oldest son was to take care of the parents.
---Rod4Him on 7/3/12




Rod4him, how do you get that
to honor your parent's is to financially support them? Please show the verse that says that.
---Jed on 7/3/12


Cluny is right. In addition, to honor one's parents was to financially help them.
---Rod4Him on 7/3/12


\\Cluny, Exodus tell us that those who honor their parents will be rewarded with a long and prosperous life. Consequently, we can adversly assume that those who mistreat their parents will suffer and have a short life.\\

When you ASSume, you know what you do to yourself.

Actually, you've read it long. It says, "That your days may be long IN THE LAND GOD GIVES YOU." It's not promising a long life to individuals who obey their parents, or the opposite to those who don't.

Rather it's promising a long stay in the promised land.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Axey: Good to hear from you again. The atheist understands my ascerbic sense of humor. He knows I don't wish him dead. But, his stance on abortion belies his taunting us on child killing. That's the point.

---Jed on 7/2/12




cluny, I really don't think I am immature. that is the biggest joke ever. I will have something to laugh about all day. I never said it was directly related to my parents. what is said is I believe God will punish us if we mistreat your parents. my brother lived a distructive lifestyle. the way he treated my parents just topped it off. he died in a nursing home with no insurance. he expected us to take care of his funeral.my brother did take care of his funeral. he died lonely with no one there and I think it was a sad thing. I prayed for him everyday and every night.

Should we kill our children? We also have to remember to let the one without sin throw the first stone.

Should we kill our children? Leviticus 20:9
---atheist on 6/29/12

If we lived in a theocracy which followed the bible that yes we would.

In other nations which are theocratic in rulership, they would kill even those who do not believein thier God and especially those who do not believe in any God

If you really want to test the sincerity of people who live in a theocracy,, join an islamic nation, and live there for about a year, then come back to CN and we can talk

Cluny you need to read Eph 6. It is plain to see that Shirl has.

\\people who abuse their parents do pay with their life. my own brother abused my parents and yelled at them.\\

shira, you're not so immature as to think that your brother's death is directly related to how he treated your parents, are you?

Glory to Jesus Christ!

jerry6593:

You told Atheist: Perhaps your parents should have considered it in your case. You do advocate abortion, don't you?

You should be very careful about even thinking things like this. If you are a Christian and say things like this to others, it means you think it's OK for them to say them to you. If you wish other people dead, it means you think it's OK for other people to wish you dead. Do you really mean that?

Leviticus 24:11 And the Israelitish woman's son blasphemed the name [of the LORD], and cursed. And they brought him unto Moses: (and his mother's name [was] Shelomith, the daughter of Dibri, of the tribe of Dan:)

Leviticus 24:16 And he that blasphemeth the name of the LORD, he shall surely be put to death, [and] all the congregation shall certainly stone him

Leviticus 24:23 And Moses spake to the children of Israel, that they should bring forth him that had cursed out of the camp, and stone him with stones. And the children of Israel did as the LORD commanded Moses.

people who abuse their parents do pay with their life. my own brother abused my parents and yelled at them. when I was there he didn't do it. he died a horrible death. He was on a vent for over 5 years. He lay in bed and withered away in very much pain and bacterias. i can't imagine laying in bed for 5 years and not being able to get up.
---shira4368 on 6/30/12


\\Cluny, are you saying because there is no story in the Bible this never happened?
---NurseRobert on 6/30/12\\

I'm saying that there's no historical record of this ever happening in the Bible, Talmud, or elsewhere in Jewish literature.

**Cluny,

These are the laws given to the Jews by God. Therefore they should be obeyed. Right?**

Should you be put to death for blasphemy, atheist? That's in the OT, too.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

That's abolished o.t. law. Cursing a parent is killing your parent, so pray for that child's life first, and tell them to knockk it off: but if the child continues their misconduct, I would turn them over to one of those strict "military regimens" hoping that they could break down the rebels evil into acceptance of authority. If it doesn't work, then I would disown the evil child as a self-destructive soul, whom will either be killed by others that he curses, or else himself will be killed for killing someone else.
---Eloy on 6/30/12


Cluny,

These are the laws given to the Jews by God. Therefore they should be obeyed. Right?
---atheist on 6/30/12


So, you know the Bible says this. And this means for children not to curse their parents. This is all we need to know . . . just don't do it!! This law is not meant to get kids killed, but to get parents to bring up their children right so they do not curse their parents.

So, this command was meant to be used in a culture where people are obeying God and loving the way God wants us to relate in our marriages - - not to be used by people who have not been giving good example to their children.

Atheist: "Should we kill our children?"

Perhaps your parents should have considered it in your case. You do advocate abortion, don't you?

Athiest, that is why you should not curse your parents, otherwise someone is going to come and put you to death. I believe if the death treath is put to you, you will obey God and not curse your parents.
---Mark_V. on 6/30/12


It's and interesting question. There are those who claim we should follow whats in the old teststament. Why would this directive from God be ignored?

Cluny, are you saying because there is no story in the Bible this never happened?
---NurseRobert on 6/30/12


Trying to play, "Gotcha!" again?

There is no example of this actually happening among the Jews.

Furthermore, this was understood not to apply to males over 13 years and a day (Bar Mitzvah age).

Glory to Jesus Christ!

No. we are to obey the law of our land & here in America it is against the law.
