Should Christians Spank Their Kids?

Episode 366 Show Notes 

From the Show

Failure to discipline our children is like leading them to death. I mean sheol was the grave. The reason this is in God’s word is because it’s part of how we’re disciplining, discipling even, our children.

—Adriel Sanchez

Questions in this Episode

1. Could you tell me how I can truly know if I have repented of my sins?

2. Thank you very much for being ambassadors for Christ and helping me understand the Bible more. My question is about corporal punishment. I am currently reading a book on leading your family in faith as father and a chapter came up about corporal punishment. I am not exactly sure where I stand and want to make sure my views line up with Scripture. I know proverbs 23:13-14 instructs us to us it as a form of discipline but I know society has a very negative view on it. Some Christians say that that passage is out of date with today's practices and culture. Can I get some clarification on this? Thank you for the work you are doing!

3. Why was God so harsh on the Israelites when they built a golden calf?

4. Is my anxiety a sin issue?
