What Is a Biblical View of How To Discipline My Child?

What Is a Biblical View of How To Discipline My Child? We answered that question on this episode of Real Truth. Real Quick.

Principles:
1. It’s problematic when a parent’s view of discipline always involves spanking their child.

2. Discipline that always involves spanking is lazy and not very thoughtful.

3. The purpose of discipline should be to train your child. It is a part of the discipleship process.

4. Love is always the motivation behind Godly discipline.

5. The goal of discipline is not to have obedient children, but rather to raise healthy adults.

6. Relationships without rules produce chaos.

7. Children do childish things.

8. Parents must determine if their child has made a childish mistake or a foolish mistake.

9. Childish behavior needs godly patience. Foolish behavior needs godly discipline.

10. Discipline is not for the benefit of the parent. It is for the benefit of the child as they learn that life and every good thing is found in adhering to the ways of the Lord.

11. The ultimate goal of discipline is to conform your child to the image of Jesus Christ.

Scripture:

“The Lord descended in the cloud and stood there with him as he called upon the name of the Lord.” Exodus 34:5

“Then the Lord passed by in front of him and proclaimed, “The Lord, the Lord God, compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in lovingkindness and truth;...” Exodus 34:6

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6

“Discipline your son while there is hope, and do not desire his death.” Proverbs 19:18

“I know Ephraim, and Israel is not hidden from Me; for now, O Ephraim, you have played the harlot, Israel has defiled itself.” Hosea 5:3

Therefore I am like a moth to Ephraim and like rottenness to the house of Judah. Hosea 5:12

“For I will be like a lion to Ephraim and like a young lion to the house of Judah. I, even I, will tear to pieces and go away, I will carry away, and there will be none to deliver.” Hosea 5:14

“A man who hardens his neck after much reproof will suddenly be broken beyond remedy.” Proverbs 29:1

“Train up a child in the way he should go, even when he is old he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6

The Cataclysm Sentence

One day in 1961, the famous physicist Richard Feynman stepped in front of a Caltech lecture hall and posed this question to a group of undergraduate students: “If, in some cataclysm, all of scientific knowledge were to be destroyed, and only one sentence was passed on to the next generation of creatures, what statement would contain the most information in the fewest words?”

In today’s episode we apply that same thought experiment to some of the greatest thinkers and saints from our tradition. What one sentence would encapsulate their thought? We look at Moses, Jesus, Paul, Augustine, Aquinas, Merton, and even Bishop Barron’s own “cataclysm sentence”!

A listener asks whether God made a mistake in creating humans.

Gnosticism, the Enduring Heresy

Gnosticism was one of the earliest heresies of the Church, and it remains among the most enduring. With an emphasis on special knowledge acquired only by a small group of enlightened elites, as well as a sharp division between spirit and matter, with spiritual things being good and material things being evil, Gnosticism still thrives today everywhere from crack conspiracy theories to Hollywood movies to our culture of self-invention. Bishop Barron discusses Gnosticism and why it ultimately fails to satisfy.

A listener asks Bishop to help her understand the resurrection of the body.

The Five-Fold Ministry is from the five ministry roles listed in Ephesians: Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor, and Teacher.
