Discipline, Adrian Peterson, and The Bible

Hi, my name is Pheaney.  And I'm a fan of the Minnesota Vikings.

(Hi Pheaney)

Yes... I probably should be checked into therapy.

Without therapy, however, I can say that I'm a former fan of Adrian Peterson.

The Bible has a lot to say about parenting:
Discipline your son and he will give you rest.
Spare the rod, spoil the child.
Fathers, don't exasperate your children.
And there's more... a lot more.

It's okay to discipline your kids.  In fact, if I read my Bible correctly it's the right thing to do.

But it is wrong to injure your kids or to discipline them without self control.

Is what AP did wrong?  Yes.

Is he an evil person?  Honestly, he's no worse than any of us with our parent's sin nature.  (Now he might be stupid and immature, but that's beyond the subject of this post.)

(PS. I scheduled this to post before the Vikings played the Tampa Bay Bucs... I hope I don't need more therapy.)
