The Purpose of Penalties

The purpose of penalties is get us back on the right road when we make a wrong turn. And we all need some help at times. Proverbs 15:10 says “Discipline is harsh for the one who leaves the path: the one who hates correction will die.” Hopefully those leaving the path will stop and consider the Lord's way of life and the many blessings it brings.

“. . For it is better . . . to suffer for doing good than to suffer for doing evil.” I Peter 3:17

Proverbs 13:24 “The one who will not use the rod hates his son, but the one who loves him disciplines him diligently.”

Proverbs 14:1 “Every wise woman builds her house, but a foolish one tears it down with her own hands.”

Notable Quotes   


     "Fundamentalist Christians have moved the theological needle so far to the right that the Gospel is said by them to be a 'progressive agenda.' It's not – it's the Gospel. We must keep preaching Jesus' message of the Kingdom of God (over against the kingdoms of this world) rooted in love (not legalism) and aimed toward reconciliation (not division). The Pharisees alleged Jesus' message was a 'liberal agenda.' It wasn't – it was the Gospel."

– The Rev. Dr. Steve Harper in a Facebook post.
